Every father is probably nervous about the moment he'll meet the young man who wants to marry his daughter. At Kelcee and Andrew's rehearsal dinner, we were treated to the story of the moment that Kelcee's dad met Andrew for the first time:
Kelcee & Andrew met after Andrew graduated from college, and we were thrilled to film their wedding video in West Texas recently. We had already filmed the wedding of Andrew's older sister Elizabeth several years ago, and when Andrew's mother contacted us about filming her youngest son's wedding weekend, we were so thrilled. First, it is an honor to be brought back to film more than one event for a family, but secondly, the Webb family is a treasure, and they have great stories worth keeping!
Under the West Texas skies, the two families gathered to celebrate with a rehearsal dinner at the rustic CapRock Winery, where its historic-looking architecture and interior hall with barrel-lined walls echoed with laughter and well-wishes long into the night. As the staff sauteed up a raspberry sauce to top small chocolate dessert cakes and vanilla icecream, Andrew's siblings told stories of his adventurousness and wild tricks from growing up. Kelcee's family spoke of both her open heart and her determination to serve others through the profession of nursing, just as nurses had been such a comfort to her own family when she was young and they lost her younger brother. In fact, Kelcee's reputation for compassion so strongly preceded her that the groom's mother told Kelcee, "see, we loved you before we even knew you."
The next day, the groom and his groomsmen began the day with a round of golf, and the girls got ready at the church. Andrew's friends and groomsmen got a special surprise at the reception--because Andrew ran track while studying at University of Texas, his groom's cake was made as an almost exact photo-replica of the track field at the Texas college.
The gothic limestone features and ornate stained glass windows were a perfect setting for the event, and Andrew's mother drew her inspiration from the church for a special gift she had made for the bride.
Andrew's family has a tradition of gifting a unique piece of jewelry to each bride in their family and that marries into it--a cross bracelet that reflects the style of their wedding. The cross on Kelcee's bracelet was designed to look just like the cross that sits in the sanctuary at First United Methodist.
