From Bows and Arrows... Natalie and Lindsay were married on a high embankment that overlooks the Red River in Telephone, Texas. The ceremony took place on lush burmuda grass, under old oak trees in an outdoor sanctuary. The 16 foot high chapel facade, with rescued stain glass windows, was built by the groom. The ceremony ended with a surprise fly over and a ten minute aerobatic show over the river.
The bride wore Hallie by Priscilla of Boston with an added cap sleeve to complete the vintage-fall look. Her birdcage veil was marked by a stunning 1920's broach of the brides late grandmother.
The wedding theme was vintage meets country elegance. The colors were deep coral, and shades of mustard-yellow and grey. The flowers were an assortment of garden roses, yarrow, brunia, rice flower, mimosa, ranunculas, football mums, and billy balls. The bride's bouquet was stacked with plush white peonies and laced with dusty miller. The vintage styled guest sign-in table backed up to a framed collage of the family tree of weddings and brides. The table centers were scattered with clear glass, milk glass, and mason jars, lightly dusted with a bundle of stems in each. Cake Affairs Dallas styled three custom round tiered cakes that sat atop vintage pedestals. Each had a vertical texture on the white frosting and yellow velvet ribbon along the base. The groom's cake was a giant graphic of Ron Paul's face!
The reception took place in the groom's airplane hanger adjacent to the ceremony, in a vast field, surrounded by hay bails. After a country dinner of brisket and chicken fried steak the guest danced the night away to the ultimate 80's band -Live 80. The couple made the their exit to Frank Sinatra's "Fly Me to the Moon," while guest showered them with vintage themed paper airplanes. And then they were off to honeymoon on St. John Island and a beautiful life together!
