• Getting Married…Texas Style, Of Course

    It wasn’t the Ritz; it wasn’t even the Holiday Inn. They didn’t need either or anything in between the two.  It was, quite simply put, a Texas wedding with a capital T on the day that Shanley Bullock wed Will Braim in Comanche County, Texas.

    The morning began perfectly, the guests properly wowed by the backyard wedding set amidst native Texas beauty. The bride was, of course, a vision beside her groom decked in jeans and tuxedo jacket, and while his father did remove his Stetson for the ceremony, he certainly sported it as he made his way down the aisle to stand as his son’s best man.

    The ceremony was poignant, Texas-Southern in style with the Ring Bearer pulling the newest member of the family down the aisle in a tulle-filled wagon. The Flower Girl followed, keeping watch over the tiny babe.

    And by the time Mr. Braim kissed the brand new Mrs. Braim, the large crowd was ready to deliver good wishes while sampling the dainty goodies displayed among flowers and lace, the gorgeous Texas sky as a backdrop.

    Of course, one simply cannot expect a typically Texas wedding to follow a set pattern, and the Braims A felt perfectly free to spend the morning visiting with

    their guests, finally dismissing them with the invitation to attend the reception later in the evening. The location? Charlie Seider’s horse barn, of course!

    And so it was that at six o’clock sharp the trucks began arriving in clouds of Texas dust, their occupants decked out in everything from denim to lace and ready for a party. The success of the Braim’s hard work was easily measured by the gasps of surprise at the beauty set atop of the barn’s dirt floor.

    It wasn’t long before the bride and groom made their entrance and the party began!

    The meal was Texas buffet style, the meats succulent and the veggies perfect for a summer evening under that ole Lone Star.  As you would expect, the ladies were beautiful and the men equally handsome.

    The newly married Braims led off with the first dance as their guests dined, and it wasn’t long until others took to the floor as well.

    Then, when they had assured themselves that everyone was having a good time, the wedding party slipped out for yet more photos and the kind of silly fun that often happens between friends who have known each other a very long time.

    And all too soon, as is so often the case, guests found the evening coming to an end, and it was time to send the bride and groom off in Texas style.

    Here at Texansunited.com we wish the Braims nothing but blue skies on their Texas horizons!

      These are the most beautiful wedding pictures that I have ever seen. No Hollywood stars looked more beautiful and handsome, and most of all, this was done in a world of love. Best Wishes, Missy Jones, Comanche

      Love the photos!
      Being from Florida (the REAL Florida, not just beaches) most people do not know we have cattle and ranches and “real” cowboys too! Most just imagine palm trees and alligators. In fact my best horse was trained by a Florida cowboy who took him out on the ranch and was led through swamps and past alligators. Turned out to be the best trained horse we owned. LOL. Have a blessed day!
