Justin and Christine, veterinarians residing in Phoenix, Arizona, chose to have their wedding near the bride’s hometown of Austin, Texas. They were married at the Salado United Methodist church, a beautiful and quaint historical chapel built in 1890. This white frame, gothic design, includes a steeple and bell which was rung by the couple as soon as they were pronounced husband and wife.
The reception was held at the beautiful Vineyard at Florence, and kicked off with a Grand March, a symbol of life, where the couple’s friends and family led them through the venue. Their guests joined together in rows of four or more to signify a growing family and the dance returned to a single file snake gliding around the room representing the twists and turns of life. After the guests formed a bridge for each person to pass under symbolizing the strength of the couple’s bond, the march ended with a circle around Christine and Justin who joined hands in their first dance to George Strait’s “Give it all we got tonight”.
With the bride’s alma mater being Texas A&M, her college friends surrounded the couple and belted out the Aggie war hymn while showing off their graduation rings. The night ended with a picturesque send off for the bride and groom as their friends and family tossed white rose petals in the air. Thank you for inviting us to be a part of your wedding! Congratulation Justin & Christine!
