A true West Texas wedding, and definitely one for the books. If you’ve ever been to Marathon, Texas, you may be familiar with the immediate and all-encompassing hospitality offered by its inhabitants. If you haven’t, don’t blink or you might miss it.
Tedi and her bridesmaids spent the morning at the Captain Shepard’s House, a stoic and historic home on the Gage property. Her Mark Ingram dress was an idyllic complement to the rigid desert setting of Marathon. It was sleek, clean cut and shone brightly in the sunset over the Glass Mountains. Her full skirt was balanced by a simple, fitted v-neck which elegantly framed her ever-contagious smile.
In the quiet of the desert, the two were wed at the Gage Gardens. Under an all-white floral arch, Tedi and Ben excitedly said “I do”! Before heading to their tented reception, the newlyweds took some time to capture the magic of the West in some of the more striking portraits we’ve seen.
In a sailcloth tent at the Gage Gardens, white floral centerpieces and custom watercolor table markers lured guests in from cocktail hour. The ingenuous crooning of the Max Flinn band filled the small town, as Tedi and Ben shared their first dance.
In an otherwise desolate area of the state of Texas, this evening could not have felt more pleasantly vivacious. After changing into a fringe-sequin mini dress, Tedi danced her way to her now husband in her royal blue Manolo Blahnik flats and off they went. This desert town saw a lot of love that weekend, and we’re still pinching ourselves to have been there.
