JAKE COLE LANE WEDDING IN APRIL

April, 2011 in Jake Cole Lane, North Zulch, TX

"My wedding was beautiful, but then again, we all say that:)

I had an rustic/ vintage outdoor wedding in early April, when the Texas heat hasnt crept in enough to fry you yet during the day, and the last of the cool spring breezes still blow throughout the night. The weather was perfect, minus the near gale force winds before the ceremony; we made old fashioned hand fans and set out water in old tin washing buckets just in case.

The weddingn was on my husband's family ranch, and so we let the beautiful natural surroundings do most of the talking. The ceremony took place below two old oak trees that had grown together to make an arch. our only decorations were the mason jars that held sunflowers and wild purple flowers, hung onto chairs at the end of every aisle, a string of pearls and crystals hanging from the trees, the aisle runner, and us. i arrived in a horse drawn carriage with my mother and left in the same carriage with my husband:)

the reception was up by the barn. we had a large hardwood dancefloor surrounded by two 20x40 tents on each side. tables were scattered throughout. under each tent hung a large chandelier and several spotlights. when it got dark, we couldve used more lighting, so make sure you think of that;)

I am happily married now."
