Bridesmaids

Bridesmaids

Bridesmaids tend to offer unusual helpful suggestions to little wedding day dilemmas on occasion. A couple of years ago there was one incident where a bride with a strapless dress was having a hard time keeping her undergarments from showing as the bodice tended to slip down. She mentioned during her dressing this issue As her bridesmaids assisted her in dressing and one helpful bridesmaid suggested they come up with a code word for this issue. That way they would nonchalantly walk up and mention the code word and she could discreetly adjust the wayward dress. The first suggestion left all in the room speechless as an enthusiastic bridesmaid suggested that they would walk up and utter the phrase ka-caw! Ka-caw! Needless to say everyone laughed and another quieter code was chosen.
Enjoy your Bridesmaids and have them help you out.Bridesmaids

Reunion Ranch Wedding

Just recently this month Dan and Kim accepted their marriage vows in front of their friends and family at the Lois Perkins Chapel on the Southwestern University campus in Georgetown, Texas. Though neither were students at the campus Kim’s father works for the University so they were able to use this beautiful, historic location. In the midst of a cold front (It had snowed just days earlier) the day dawned blue and sunny. Kim and the girls bubbled as they got ready in the adjacent building while the guys were across campus till time for the wedding. Their wedding theme was black and white with touches of crimson and was reflected throughout the ceremony and reception from the black and white filigree patterns through the bridesmaid’s dresses to the guest book and programs all the way to the sashes at the reception. Kim’s aunt had done all of the flower arrangements for both the wedding and reception and everything looked spectacular for their once-in-a-lifetime event.

Their reception was at nearby venue that provides a true Texas Hill Country atmosphere; Reunion Ranch. It is nestled in northwest Georgetown in a grove of live oaks. The facility opened in 1986 and covers 116 acres for corporate and personal events. Dinner for the evening was delicious BBQ provided by their on-site catering staff. And events were kept smoothly on track by the site wedding coordinator and DJ. The facility has an in-door rustic building which can seat up to 600 guests. A beautiful red curtained stage provided a striking backdrop for their first dance and they had a wonderful time mingling with family and friends. We were even able to sneak them outside to take a few fun photos by the stagecoach before they cut the yummy 3 tier cake.

Their honeymoon is planned for a secret tropical location which we hope to hear about after they return. Congratulations Kim and Dan!
