Carita and DeShawn have such wonderful and talented families and friends, that it was only natural that they include them in lots of unique ways during both their wedding ceremony and reception at Texas Discovery Gardens. DeShawn’s dad sang during their first dance, for instance, and the couple’s bridal party, including their children, took turns giving heartfelt and funny speeches. Even the getaway car held special meaning for the couple, as it was the baby blue 1967 Firebird convertible the bride’s parents drove when she was a child. It’s since been lovingly restored by her best friend and her husband, who played chauffeur for them at the end of the night!
After dinner, loved ones of all ages kept the dance floor crowded, which made for a lot of fun. I like to think that the donut and cake buffet helped, by keeping everyone fueled through the evening. To thank everyone for their support, the couple hired an amazing caricature artist to create unique “portraits” for their guests, which might just be my favorite favor yet.
It really was such a wonderful day, and I’m so thankful I got to be part of it. Carita & DeShawn you are absolutely lovely together, and I can’t wait to see what great things the future holds for you and your family!
