"Full On" Texas Wedding. . . Full On Fun!

by Maggie Sefton


What a wonderful wedding!  Daughter Serena and new husband Jeff arranged  all sorts of great ranch activities for both families, and we were all there to celebrate the event.  What Fun!  Lots of happy and friendly relatives on both sides enjoying the great spring weather at Jeff's aunt/uncles's ranch in the Hill Country of Texas.  Beautiful tree-filled setting, and the weather cooperated.  Serena wanted an overcast day but no rain.  That way everyone's makeup wouldn't melt.  :)


There was delicious Texas Barbeque and music from a great group of Texas musicians who played all sorts of favorites.  Plus the talented fiddler played Serena's choice of Wedding processional----Ashokan Farewell.  Hauntingly beautiful.  We all had a wonderful time.  Here are some photos-----

I see that AnaSofia wore her pink cowgirl boots but the bridesmaids wore boots too. Did Serena? Serena's dress is beautiful, and both she and Jeff look happy and relaxed. Will we get to see a picture of you in your dress? Were their dogs invited? Best wishes and congratulations to them. Now you can relax for a while. Cordella

What a great time! My very first book has a bride on the cover wearing red cowboy boots. Very "traditional" Texas wedding. Everyone looks so gorgeous and happy! Congrats to the bride and groom! (and a deep breath for the mother of the bride!)

Our daughters must have had weddings the same weekend! Holly's was in Georgetown not too far away from the hill country.
Congratulations to your daughter and both families.

Looks like a beautiful wedding. Just about anywhere in the Hill Country is a beautiful site for a wedding. It's one of my favorite places to visit. Congratuations to your daughter and new son-in-law.

The bride is beautiful. Love the cowgirl boots. My granddaughter had a pink pair, too, when she was really young.

Anonymous----Yes, Serena wore boots, too, beneath her gown. Really comfortable. And their dogs were away at the kennel for the occasion. Since I couldn't take photos of myself, I'll check to see if anyone else has a photo with me in it. :)

Thanks so much, Leann. Yes, a deep breath. And I'm moving slower back in Colorado now. Crashing. :)

Maggie Sefton said...

Thank you, thank you, Everyone for all your kind and thoughtful comments. They really mean a lot. It was a wonderful wedding----and the entire 5 days. And now, I'm exhausted. Trying to catch up on energy now.

My husband and I hosted our wedding reception here and we were so glad we picked this place! We wanted to have a stylish event and decor and service was important to us. When we first saw this Wedding location in Chicago, we were impressed by how clean, new and modern it was.
