The bride’s parents’ ranch home was the setting for the wedding. The walkway to the house was lined with white shepherd hooks which held large floral spheres in shades of pink and green carnations with matching ribbon. The front door was decorated with a wreath of pink and green hydrangeas and roses. The ceremony was performed in front of the native stone fireplace with a large floral arrangement of hot pink and green hydrangeas, star fighter lilies, snapdragons, Malibu gerberas, blue heather, and bells of Ireland on the cedar mantle. Large matching arrangements on pottery stands flanked both sides of the fireplace. The bride, escorted by her father, entered down the cedar-railed wood staircase with floral arrangements at the base of the stairs.
The Salado Trio, consisting of a cello, flute, and violin, performed a selection of music prior to the ceremony. During the ceremony the trio played “Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring,” “Cannon in D,” “Bridal Chorus” and the “Wedding March.” Danielle Williams read selected scripture verses during the ceremony. Becky Lamb sang a solo, “When God Made You.” During the lighting of the unity candle, Brad Cook sang a cappella “The Lord’s Prayer.”
Immediately following the ceremony a reception was held outside under large decorated tents overlooking the ranch. Guests enjoyed dinner and dancing to the music of Cuvée from Dallas.
Members of the house party were Devin Summitt, Danielle Williams, and Casey Wilson. Out-of-state guests were present from Alabama, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, New Jersey, and Washington.
Following a honeymoon trip to Playa del Carmen, Mexico, the couple will make their home in Corsicana.
