The sprawling ranch was an idyllic place to host the wedding activities. The bride got ready in a small farmhouse where the walls were as white as her gown.

Chad chose a dark blue suit with a light blue shirt. His style was polished with a unique bow tie and brown shoes. His groomsmen matched – san jackets – and were eager to see the groom off.

Guests were greeted with white arched double doors and seated in long white pews.

Katie and Chad wed under a wooden arbor embellished with flowers. They sealed their vows with a kiss and returned back up the aisle elated to finally be husband and wife.

In planning their special day, Katie wanted to make sure it was especially meaningful. So, guests were treated to tasty drinks and Texas biscuits with a selection of toppings all handpicked by the bride and her mother.

The bride also provided guests with a cookie bar. Having once been employed by a local cookie shop, she honored their business with a variety of their cookies for guests to take home.
