Texas Rose Garden Wedding: Amber & Kasey
April 12, 2015
Sometimes there is simply nothing that beats a first-person account. We love Amber’s viewpoint as “the groom” so much, that we wanted to share her own words. Take it Amber…
“Before the nationwide legalization of what I will henceforth refer to as simply, marriage, my wife and I eloped to NYC and got married at the courthouse. My best friend/best man and I were each other’s witnesses. The date was ironically shared with Texas Independence Day, March 2, 2015. This was exciting but not nearly as exciting as what was to come.”
“Our venue was perfect. I had obviously never conducted, planned, arranged or set up for a wedding before so having a guiding hand was a necessity. It was also nice to be so graciously accepted and respected.”
“The morning of my wedding came and went in the blink of an eye. The groomsmen and I got up early in the morning, met my soon-to-be in-laws and father at the chapel to decorate. My wife wanted everything to be perfect, as did I, so I anxiously yet authoritatively directed my wonderful helpers so as to make the most of our brief allotted time. Everything seemed to go without a single flaw. I knew that something was on the horizon because no one gets a flaw-free wedding, not even a charmer like me.”
Although it was a bit muggy, the sun stayed behind the clouds most of the evening. The couple smiled for photos, exchanged their vows and showed an entire venue that Amber and Kasey’s love was no different than their own.
