Kevin & Marrci were married in our vintage venue, Tirzah, located in the Heart of Texas in the Downtown Belton Historic District. It was a beautiful summer day.

This sweet Couple is from Lampasas, Texas. They wanted an intimate Wedding with immediate family which includes 8 of their combined children — Yours, Mine, and Ours!!

The Wedding Ceremony was very beautiful and witnessed by their closest family and friends.

Behind the scenes, I had some wonderful help cleaning and setting up the chairs for the Wedding Ceremony.

The Couple ventured away from Tradition. The Groom had previously seen his beautiful Bride in her Wedding Dress because he went with her to pick out the perfect dress for their special day.  In fact, he was the one who zipped up the dress when she was trying it on.

The Groom’s father, Michael Marshall, had the honor of marrying the sweet Couple.

Their Wedding Party consisted of their children as they all stood together while the vows were exchanged.

The Bride walked down the aisle to “You’re The Reason” by Calum Scott … “I’d climb every mountain and swim every ocean just to be with you!”

Marrci’s sister walked the Bride down the aisle, and she read some beautiful words before the Couple said their vows …

“You have known each other from the first glance to this point in commitment. All of those conversations that were held while riding in the car or over a meal or during long walks; all of those sentences that began with “When we’re married,” and all those promises that are unspoken matters of the heart; all these common things, and more, are the real process of a Wedding.  Look at one another and remember this moment in time! Now, you shall say a few words that take you across a threshold of life. For after these vows, you say to this world, this — is my husband; this — is my wife!”

One of my favorite parts of a Wedding is seeing the Bride and Groom look into each other’s eyes as they are about to say their vows.  This couple just could not stop smiling at each other. Their happiness was contagious because I kept smiling at them.

You may now kiss your Bride!”

“May we present Mr. and Mrs. Kevin Marshall!”

After the ceremony, the Couple and family enjoyed the delicious Wedding Cake with sweet tea and lemonade with sliced strawberries and raspberries.

The Groom made a loving comment … “I love this woman; I am happy that we finally got to do this.”  The Bride also happily stated … “I just love being able to kiss him for the rest of my life!” ❤

Having an intimate Wedding allows the Bride and Groom to incorporate sentimental touches. The Couple gave personalized thank you cards for each guest with individually boxed-up cupcakes for each guest to take home.

For their final farewell, their children were blowing bubbles of wedding wishes for the new Mr. and Mrs.

A very special Wedding memory for me was when the Bride left a review, “Diana Roberts our lovely, sweet, gorgeous venue host and owner of Tirzah, put so much extra into our ceremony making sure that my last minute nuptials were just as beautiful and memorable as if I had planned them for a year.” The Bride’s words were a treasure and warmed my heart!

Typically, it is the Couple’s Wedding Vision that comes together into a magical day; however, this was a Surprise Wedding!! The Couple set the date, chose the officiants, and selected the venue, but it was the Bride’s best friends or rather sisters by heart that planned the wedding for Mike Elkins and Montie Smith; the rest of the details were a complete surprise until the Bride and Groom walked through the doors of the venue on their Wedding Day!

Mike and Montie were married in our vintage venue, Tirzah, located in the Heart of Texas in the Downtown Belton Historic District. It was a beautiful autumn day in October that was filled with with love, laughter, pumpkins, and hay bales. ?

The Couple held with Tradition and elected to not see each other on their Wedding Day. This Tradition often builds excitement and anticipation for the Wedding Ceremony.

Mike and Montie's Wedding - Wedding Dress

One of my favorite parts of the Wedding is when the Groom sees his Bride for the first time as she walks down the aisle towards him in her Wedding Dress. The Couple did not see one another until Montie walked down the aisle with her mother.

Another Wedding Tradition that the Bride included was based on an old English rhyme … “Something old, something new, something borrowed something blue, a sixpence in your shoe!” Brides have been following this custom for centuries. Montie’s dad placed a penny in Montie’s shoe to bring prosperity to their marriage.

There were two officiants, and the two were each of the Bride and Groom’s dads. The Wedding Ceremony was very beautiful and witnessed by their closest family and friends. The Couple wrote their own vows which told the story of their love.

A Loving Memory display was included to remember their loved ones … “We know you would be here today if Heaven wasn’t so far away.” For as long as there is a memory, they live on in our heart.

Montie’s daughter, Mary, and Mary’s friends assembled all of the Party Favors to thank the family and friends for attending the nuptials.

Coronas De Oro served a delicious meal at the Reception. Wine was served to toast with; the wine bottles were personalized with the Couple’s picture on them, and their children were given a bottle of wine to take home as a gift.

On their way to a happily ever after, the Newlyweds honeymooned in Gatlinburg, Tennessee. While they were there, they went to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, hiked the Appalachian Trail, and saw a black bear. They also explored Elvis Presley’s home, the Graceland Mansion, in Memphis, Tennessee.

The couple traveled on to the Blue Ridge Mountains in Asheville, North Carolina and went on a tour and carriage ride at the Biltmore House. The timeless beauty of the Biltmore was built in 1895. This historic landmark is America’s largest home with 250-rooms and 8,000 acres of grounds and gardens.

Honeymoon - Biltmore House

A very special Wedding memory for me was when the Bride thanked me for “making their day so special.”  Those sweet words were a treasure and warmed my heart!

After the Newlyweds returned from their Honeymoon, I gave them a small gift which was an ornament replica of the Biltmore House, and I asked the Bride if she had to do it all over again with the Wedding, would she still have a “Surprise Wedding?” She said, “Yes, I wouldn’t change a thing!!”

Joshua Marin and Christine Torti’s Wedding

Logo-H

Their love story began with a spark on the Forth of July!  Christine and Rosita were in Nursing School together, and Rosita introduced Christine to her cousin, Joshua, at their family picnic on Independence Day. As the fireworks were lighting up the sky, they were falling in love.

Their love story continued as Josh proposed by making a video asking Christine’s parents’ blessing for Christine’s hand in marriage, and he then had the video played at a movie theater during the previews for Doctor Strange.

Christine had her Bridal Shower at Tirzah, our vintage venue.  It was hosted by her friend, Rosita, whom Christine had asked to be her Maid of Honor.

It is always so amazing to see the Couple’s wedding vision come together into a magical day.  Candice Bahnsen with Tirzah designed several personalized chalkboards for the special event.

Josh and Christine were married in the beautiful St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Temple, Texas.

There are several parts to a wedding that are my favorite such as the Groom seeing his Bride for the first time as she is walking down the aisle, or the Pronouncement of Marriage when the couple is introduced as husband and wife … “you may now kiss the Bride,” but I love getting to witness a very sentimental moment with the Bride and her Dad just moments before she walks down the aisle.

The wedding ceremony was very beautiful witnessed by many family and friends.

The Couple’s reception was held at Cathedral Oaks, a grand 6,800-square-feet event center nestled on six oak-covered acres. The picturesque setting provides a serene experience from beginning to end.

The reception facility has a plush Bride Room where the bride and her bridesmaids enjoyed mimosas in their matching bathrobes as they were getting ready for the big celebration.

During the toasts, the Groom started by toasting to all of the guests.  The Best Man, Maid of Honor, and the Father of the Bride toasted sweet words to the Bride and Groom including a beautiful quote … “Love isn’t always perfect. It isn’t a fairy tale or a storybook, and it doesn’t always come easy. Love is overcoming obstacles, facing challenges, fighting to be together, holding on and never letting go. It is a short word, easy to spell, difficult to define, and impossible to live without. Love is work, but most of all, Love is realizing that every hour, every minute, and every second was worth it because you did it together.”

CJ’s Event Catering served a delicious meal at the reception. The professional photographer was Shane with Captivating Weddings, and the DJ was Andrew Trevino. Georgetown Blooms was the florist for the bouquets, corsages, and boutonnieres.  Confetti Rentals created a wow factor with their impressive design as you entered the reception hall.

A very special moment for us during the evening was having the Mother of the Bride tell us it was such a delight having us there. Those sweet words are a treasure!

After the wedding, the couple travelled to Moorea for their Honeymoon and stayed at the Hilton Moorea Lagoon Resort and Spa, and then adventured on to Bora Bora and stayed at the Four Seasons.

Josh and Christine had many romantic and exciting memories from Polynesian dancing, to kayaking in the turquoise waters, to a Submarine Scooter excursion.
