From the Bride… During sunset on a hillside overlooking lake Austin, my boyfriend of four years proposed to me. This was the start of a perfect journey of marriage. During the wedding process, we found every girl’s dream venue, Chateau Cocomar, which was built in the form of a French-styled castle. Instantly, we fell in love with the venue and took the date of their opening weekend. Ted has always treated me like a princess, so getting married to my Prince Charming in a castle felt just like a fairytale. All this princess needed was a white Cinderella dress to complete her night. The Oscar de la Renta dress I wore on our special day was the dream dress I had been drooling over for years. Everything started to come together perfectly as I started to plan every detail for our wedding.

Two months before the wedding, my father was unexpectedly struck with a heart attack and passed away. Like many girls growing up, I wanted more than anything for my dad to walk me down the aisle. I decided to have a picture of the both of us attached to my bouquet to represent him walking down the aisle with me. Through all the tragedy, I was able to continue onward because of the support and love I was receiving from my husband, family and friends.

When the day arrived, everything went so perfectly. Our day to be united as one was a dream come true. My husband’s father is a pastor at the church where we met and fell in love. It was very special to us to have him be the officiant at our wedding. It was so special to have one of Ted’s best man, who has been diagnosed with leukemia, cleared for the weekend to make it to the wedding and give a toast. We had an awesome DJ who played and sang all of our favorite music as we danced the night away. After cutting the cake and hearing the toasts, it was finally time for us to leave. We walked out to the limo with our family and friends tossing roses in the air. I couldn’t believe such a beautiful day was coming to an end, but I couldn’t wait to start forever with Ted. Ted and I put so much effort into the design and decoration of the wedding, but in the end, we realized that what we loved and wanted most was to be with the friends and family that have been with us through it all.  Nothing meant more to us than to celebrate the day with them.
