Congratulations to a wonderful couple, Shannon and Jeremiah, on their marriage this weekend. I had the pleasure of attending their wedding Saturday near Bulverde, TX. The drive through the Hill Country from Austin was gorgeous with plenty of wildflowers still showing their glory. Shannon was a beautiful bride who found the perfect location at Twelve Oaks Bed and Breakfast - the oak trees provided great ambiance for an evening full of celebrating this couple.
After opening Shannon's handmade invitation, I knew the decor at this wedding would be great. Fresh lavender and burlap were adorning the tables, and the signature cocktails even had a splash of lavender syrup - the lavender champagne was a hit!
Candles were added to the centerpieces before dinner. What a beautifully simple yet elegant tablescape!
Thank you, Shannon and Jeremiah, for all you do!
Both Shannon and Jeremiah have sacrificed so much for others. When I met Shannon in grad school, I was impressed to learn that she had served in the United States Air Force for four years. She has since earned her LCSW and is now a child advocate and Guardian ad Litem for Bell County. Her new husband Jeremiah has been in the United States Army for eight years and is a Warrant Officer. He has served in Iraq twice and Afghanistan once as a crew chief on the Black Hawk. Shannon and Jeremiah are moving to Alabama this week as Jeremiah was accepted to flight school and will become a helicopter pilot for the Army.
I wish them all the best on their new journey and am so appreciative for what they do for others.

And Happy Memorial Day to you all.
Have a chic week!
