An Outdoor, Country Wedding at Cathedral Oaks in Belton, Texas

By  |  0 Comments

Brittany and PJ met in the summer of 2008 in Stephenville, Texas. Both were students at Tarleton State University. They became acquainted with one another, but it wasn’t quite the right timing for a romance.

An Outdoor, Country Wedding at Cathedral Oaks in Belton, Texas

Fast forward six years and a fairy-tale love story followed. PJ invited Brittany to dinner. The two soon became a couple.

One Christmas the couple traveled to New York City. They took one of the city’s famous carriage rides. After, they walked through Central Park. PJ led Brittany to a rocky ledge overlooking the snowy park. They smiled for a photograph. When Brittany turned around, PJ was on one knee asking for her hand in marriage. Ecstatic, Brittany said “Yes!”

Brittany on her wedding dress: I shopped at a well known and busy bridal salon in New York City. I found myself overwhelmed and nervous about finding my dream wedding dress. A friend recommended Belle Saison Bridal in Austin, Texas. They were so welcoming and patient. I found a fabulous Maggie Sottero bridal gown. My sweet husband said, ‘Babe, you look beautiful…you took my breath away.’

From Brittany on planning their wedding: PJ and I dreamed of our wedding day filled to the brim with laughter, fun, and joy! We wanted a lifetime of memories not only for us, but also for our wonderful family and friends. We pictured soft colors, elegance, and beautiful scenery. Our dream venue was found at Cathedral Oaks Event Center in Central Texas. Beneath majestic oak trees we exchanged our vows in front of the people we love most.

Much of the credit for my dream wedding belongs to my mom. She took my wedding vision and made it reality. Over coffee one day, I dreamily described my vision to my mom. With tireless energy my mom worked endless hours to create the most beautiful wedding. In addition to my mother, my future mother-in-law was a precious gem as well. She made the most incredible wedding cake. Every day for six months, she worked patiently on each individual sugar flower for our wedding cake. She also created the perfect groom’s cake for PJ!

It is a day PJ and I will always treasure. It was simply perfect.

A big thanks to Shelly Taylor for providing another great wedding story.
