Hi Guys, I wanted to share a fellow SFA alumni’s wedding. Kimberly was my CA my freshman year in college and I’m so excited to share her wedding day pictures and vendors bellow! Lets hear from Kimberly herself about this special day!
Hello! We are Kimberly and Michael Vaughan. We were married on March 11, 2017 at Katy Depot in Denison, Texas. Michael and I met online in October 2013. We talked for several months before we decided we were interested in each other. By April 2014, we were officially a couple. We got engaged in October 2015.
As for a theme/decorations, I knew I wanted simple as the wedding venue we chose was already so gorgeous. We chose navy blue and a pale green for a spring feel. Our flowers consisted of cream and white flowers with touches of greenery. I had a bridesmaid who is allergic to real flowers. I decided for this that I would do bouquets of “real touch” flowers. My bouquet along with my bridesmaids bouquets were purchased off of Etsy from a store called ModageFloral. Yvonne was wonderful to work with and definitely captured my vision for what I wanted. Our florist, who also was the venue manager, did a wonderful job of matching the real floral centerpieces and other arrangements to match the bouquets. My bridesmaids all wore the same dress in the color “Meadow” from David’s Bridal. The groomsmen wore the same ensemble as the groom without the tux coat. All of the mens’ attire was from Men’s Wearhouse.
Michael and I have a broad range of interests. Being nerds, we knew that we wanted our wedding to reflect our quirky interests along with our love and devotion to each other and Christ. To incorporate so many of our quirks, we added touches such as a real pizza on top of a cupcake tower for the groom’s “cake,” Power Ranger action figures as the pizza’s “cake” topper, and a cake topper for our wedding cake in a Star Wars font.
To symbolize our dedication to keeping Christ at the center of our marriage, we assembled a unity cross that was hand-carved by a church member/family friend.
During the time Michael and I have been together, both my brother and dad passed away pretty unexpectedly at separate times. Michael was a huge support during those times. To honor them at out wedding, we set up photos with candles in the front row. My oldest two nephews seated my sister-in-law (their mother) and then lit the candles for my da
d and brother commemorating their presence during the wedding.
Our wedding was a beautiful day surrounded by so many of our loved ones. It was perfect in every way.
Hello guys! First of all I must apologize for being a little MIA recently. I started grad school and things just got pretty hectic. We are currently working on a preferred vendors page. I am going to need your help with that though! please head over to our contact page and include your favorite vendors and why you love them so much! We are also working on sharing REAL wedding’s with you guys!
Recently, we were featured in the Woodlands Bride magazine. We are also working on getting published in other magazine, and I promise you guys will be the first to hear. To check out more of this magazine and to share please click here for the magazine and here for out online posting.
Winnie Couture has a large selection of bridal dresses. What I love about them is that they do not cater to one specific style. They accommodate any bride’s tastes and any wedding theme. My dress was perfect for a barn wedding! My friend Aliett just got her dress recently from Winnie too! When she stepped out of that fitting room with the dress she picked, I gasped and was in total shock, It was perfect! Her Fiancee and my best guy friend, Abner, is going to just love it. I kept my dress in my closet for over 9 months and it never got a single wrinkle! The material is high quality. And they put so much detail into their lace on their dresses. Plus they sew in the bra into the wedding dress so all you need is a seamless beige panty. Nothing itchy goes underneath. The prices range form $1,700-$8,500. I figured if I was paying anything over 2k that I better love it. I did go to Davids Bridal and other bridal stores like BHLDN. I tried on dresses under the 2K range and disliked them all. The price was right, but the dresses weren’t, in my opinion. I didn’t get any attention from whoever helped me at Davids Bridal. Not even when I picked our flower girl dress from there, even though we made an appointment! Going into Winnie I was the ONLY bride there. And I had Lindsey’s full attention. It was such an intimate moment to say YES to the dress! With Aliett, Lindsey helped her just the same! My mom ended up picking the dress for me to try on that I chose. I was not expecting to love my dress! And just like Aliett I did not believe I’d pick it that day! They require you to put 50% down to order and make the dress and then to pay the rest when you come pick it up. but if you purchase a dress at your first visit you get 15% off. I did pay for a custom dress to be made to fit me, and I got my Swarovski crystal veil from there. Paying for the dress to be custom made to your body is such a relief. They measure every single inch of you to make the most perfect fit! Being short, I didn’t want to lose any details in the lace of the dress. It’s such a relief to have picked up my dress, wedding ready. No alterations or having to worry about anyone messing up my dress, or changing it in any way. If your a #WinnieBride please submit your photos to me! I’d love to see them and maybe even post them!
