1 For her “country elegant” wedding,
C-Jaye wore a Paloma Blanca gown,
purchased from Brickhouse Bridal
(brickhousebridal.com), and carried a
bouquet of china and hypericum berries,
roses, and ranunculuses; flowers by
Antique Rose (936-321-4366). Derek
paired a Jos. A. Bank blazer with jeans.
2 Under her gown, the bride wore
cowboy boots from Corral Boot Company
(corralboots.com). 3 The ceremony was
held on the steps outside The Shelby
Wedding Chapel (theshelby.net);
the couple’s guests sat on bales of hay.
4 C-Jaye’s grandparents created
the ceremony programs, which were
mounted on pieces of wood and displayed
in an antique washtub. 5 The bridal
party wore dresses from Caché and boots
by Oak Tree Farms. Ring bearer Andrew
wore chaps, a vest, and a cowboy hat.
6 “We started the ceremony right before
sunset so that the sun would be setting
as we were getting married,” C-Jaye says.
