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.
