Wedding Party

We had hay bales to put out for seating, florist delivering flowers, furniture arriving, tents to arrange, miscellaneous sewing and ironing. Jewelry repair and last-minute details before we could even dress ourselves.

 


Prayers said for over the bride for their big day. Groom hung out with his wedding party waiting for it all to start.

Ashley was a beautiful bride and there were so many special moments.

Here we go people! Getting seated.


Incredible music and the groom took his vows to a whole new level. He wrote her a song and read his vows to her. We were all in tears!

They are hitched y’all!! It’s done! They are married.

Great reception! Food was amazing and so was the music. Father’s speech had us all in tears and wishing we had a videographer.

Dancing and celebrating.

 

 

Family sing the Perkin’s family song.


Off they go! What a wonderful ride and a great send-off to start their marriage.

Congratulations Ashley and Joshua Siegel!

Rehearsal

Rehearsal 11
Backyard prep for rehearsal dinner

Well, it’s finally time. The house is ready. Marie and Jeff have an incredible backyard thanks to the hard work of David Bergman and Nacho with Weatherford Gardens. He went above and beyond in not only making the backyard a place out of a Hallmark movie, but he also helped prepare the whole yard and pasture for the big day. I must say, I have not seen a yard look as incredible as this one does. George Perry of George Perry Construction is the masterful craftsman who build Marie’s greenhouse after he did her renovations in the house and Biv’s playhouse. I can only imagine what the first snow fall is going to look like back here. Total Hallmark moment!!

 

 

Tables were provided by Kim and Lindsey of Borrowed Treasures in Weatherford Texas. They also provide seating, tables, glassware and so much more for the wedding. Check out their website y’all! As a bonus, they also rent out their location in town as well as have sets for holiday pictures.

 


Marie worked hard to set the table décor while I worked on the greenhouse. A few table runners from my stash of extras helped bring a little softness and a great backdrop to Marie’s finishing touches. Mother nature was lending a helping hand with a few fallen leaves. It looks like Marie planned them.

 


Dinner was some tasty barbeque catered by the Mesquite Pit in Weatherford Texas. Desserts were the perfect ending of the meal provided by the groom’s family. Wine from the Grape Creak Vineyard would be served. A special thank you to Fred and Kathy Harper for helping serve dinner. You were great!!

 


Marie had trash cans painted by Kylie Lacefield. Gave a nice touch to an otherwise not so pleasant necessity.

Ashley’s Shower

Shower 8 Front Sign

We were home late on Sunday from Massachusetts and I was back on the road by Tuesday heading to Texas. It’s shower time y’all!

I arrived Wednesday at the little house and unpacked before heading up to my sister’s. My car was loaded with wedding decorations including the bouquet. Talk about a nervous drive trying to make sure nothing got screwed up. But I was glad I was able to bring it out and now we can focus on the shower.

 

We hit the ground running when I arrived. Reviewing through the menu and getting our lists together of what we still needed to buy. Decorations have been accumulated and it was time to start getting them up. Marie’s house is looking amazing and all the work being done for the wedding is really paying off. I can’t wait to show you all the work when it is done.

 

Thursday is a day of decorating, getting our nails done (mine look horrid after all the crafting), grocery shopping and of course the liquor store. I have things to do! Ashley comes in to try on her dress so that I can get an idea of what needs to be adjusted. Oh my, her dress is beautiful and all lace! And it needs to be taken in quite a bit. Holy cow!!!

 

 

Friday I am deep into my cooking mode so all worries about alternations will have to wait. I make my Sangria using a Llano red wine and a berry brandy. Llano is one of my favorite Texas wine companies. They also have an amazing port I highly recommend. So here was the menu for the shower. I had to make up the chocolate bread pudding for the dessert tamales and prep the rest of the menu. Luckily the beans, rice and tortillas came from Rosa’s and would be picked up before the shower along with a few other things. We had a few last-minute decorations to make and were so glad Beth and Carla came over to help. Chairs are delivered from Borrowed Treasures. I love the assortment they brought and can’t wait to see what they do for the wedding. Our brother Chip and his wife Noemi arrive with our niece Anita. Woo hoo!

 

Saturday as Marie is rushing around running last minute errands (our brother too) I have Anita working those arm muscles helping me with the two sauces for the tamales. The cookies as gifts were so adorable from Back Home Bakery. Long story short, it was great! Everything went well for the shower. We had over 50 people show up and Ashley was happy. We took care of the food and venue so that Havalah and the rest of the bridal party could concentrate on the bride. Noemi and Beth worked hard helping me with the food and clean up. My brother cooked the meats and jalapenos and Clarinda was the photographer. Michelle made the red sauce, yummy! I am so grateful and thankful for everyone’s help!

 

Sunday was a day spent finishing the headdress for the flower girls, taking in the wedding dress and chatting with my sister. Ashley will be a beautiful bride and I know that when I go back before the wedding, more alterations may be needed. The wedding is just a month away…
