A stunning winter wedding took place on February 13, 2010 for Katie Ruggeri and Nathan Nelson.  Here are some highlights of the day, as told by the bride:

The wedding took place the weekend of the 12 inch record snowfall in the Dallas area. Despite lots of stress and many flight changes, we ended up with only 6 guests that missed the wedding due to the weather. We had to change our rehearsal dinner location hours prior to the beginning of the rehearsal because the original location, the Cantina Laredo in Inwood Village, didn’t have power. Our church regained power mere minutes before the rehearsal. A blessing considering the church wedding coordinator called me earlier in the day informing me to tell everyone invited to the rehearsal to wear heavy jackets! We were sad that some of our friends and family were unable to attend the wedding due to Snowpocalypse 2010, but the blanket of snow turned out the be a beautiful backdrop for a beautiful day!! Not to mention we have some great stories to tell our kids!!!

One of the groom’s brothers is in the Army and was deployed to Afghanistan days before the wedding. The bride surprised the groom and had a recorded toast from his brother that was played during the reception.

Thank you to all the vendors that made it so fabulous!  Photo – VIM Studio, Video – Soulbox, Floral – Fete des Fleurs, DJ and Lighting – Marcus Rollins, Band – Signed Sealed Delivered, Cakes – Panini Bakery, Church – Christ the King Catholic Church, Reception – Union Station, Hair – Sonia Trevino, Makeup – Mayra Rams-Sanabria.
