Words from the Bride:
About the Wedding…
“We are both very laid back, easy going people so we knew we were not going to have a “formal” wedding so to speak. We had a fajita bar as our food. Everyone loves fajitas! My dad’s cousin cooked on site for over 250 guests! My mom made all of the salsa the night before. The food was easy, fun, and delicious! Succulents are my favorite, and of course they fit our country/rustic theme, so I had to incorporate them. My mom spent over a year on growing her little succulent farm and handmade every succulent centerpiece at my wedding. I literally cried when I saw them being set up on the tables a few hours before the wedding. She worked her tail off with making sure all of the succulent ensembles were perfect (which they absolutely were!)
I chose red, teal, and tan as my wedding colors. Red has always been one of my favorite colors, and it fit right in with a fall wedding.
As we wanted a laid back and fun wedding, the bridesmaids wore a cute little denim dress with cowboy boots and the guys worse starched down jeans, button up shirt, and of course cowboy boots.”
Their Love Story…
“Trevor and I’s families have been friends since before we were even born. We knew of each other, but never really talked. He was way more into me than I was him. Trevor’s dad passed away from cancer right after Trevor graduated high school. After that happened our families kind of lost touch.
I moved to Stephenville, TX to attend Tarleton State University in 2012. Trevor came up here to visit my cousin, Jeremy, who was also living here and going to college. (Him and my cousins always stayed close.) Jeremy called me that night and invited me to come hang out with everyone. After talking to Jeremy, I called my best friend, Kayli, to chit chat, I told her about being invited to go over to Jeremy’s, but there was going to be a lot of people and I just really didn’t feel like going. I was still pouting and moping around months later after a bad breakup. I was being the typical girl. Kayli said to me, “Jenna, just go. You never know who you might meet.” I gave her a huge sigh and told her i’d talk to her later. I text Jeremy and said “Okay, I’m coming. Let me comb my hair.” I got to Jeremy’s house and was introducing myself to everyone that I didn’t know. I got to Trevor, held my hand out to shake his and introduce myself because I honestly didn’t recognize him. It had been years since I’d seen him and he both had grown up a lot. He looked at me and said, “Oh I know who you are.”
We hung out that night and had a great time. The chase was on for him. He pursued me so hard after that night. He kept asking me to “just let me take you on a date”. I finally gave in. A few weeks later we officially became a couple.
I guess it was about a month or so into being boyfriend and girlfriend, we were hanging out a friend’s place and they told me what Trevor said on their truck ride back home from when they came up to see Jeremy. Apparently Trevor would not shut up about me the whole 2 hour ride back to their hometown. They were giving him a hard time and he said these exact words to them, “Ya’ll watch. I’m going to marry that girl one day.” He got so red and embarrassed when they told on him for being love struck! It was so cute. I did call him creepy though for telling everyone he was going to marry me haha.
After 2 years of being together, he asked me to marry him. I was outside letting the horses out and going about my day just like I would any other day. When he got down on one knee, I was surrounded by our horses and dogs. It was perfect for me.
I had no idea the man I was going to marry was right in front of me all those years. It is so crazy how things work out.”
