Congratulations to Rustin & Jessica Cavel

We made the trip to Longview, TX  to witness our Nephew Rustin Cavel and his bride elect, Jessica Shankle exchange vows.  They had a beautiful ceremony with the parents  very much involved.


Jessica and her Dad.  She is a beautiful girl with a personality to match!   Rustin is one lucky guy!

The parents each read a scripture passage they felt was important for the couple to remember and live by…a very touching, emotional time in the ceremony.  My brother Jimmy on the right with his lovely wife, Kelly.   DSCF9137

Jessica’s dress had wraps and layers of what appeared to be a cotton fabric…with lovely fringed raw edges.  She wore a wispy  lace net veil with a sparkly hair comb and a strand of white pearls.   Her wedding ring was from her Grandmother.

The backdrop in the church was all white and draped.  She used vases of white/green hydrangea and 2 large baskets of ferns.  There were flameless candles on the dais and hydrangea tied on the chairs along the main aisle with purple & white rose petals strewn along the aisle.

Her attendants were in different shades of rose & purple.

Everything was very understated and beautiful.   Prayers for a happy and fruitful union!
