Match Made in Heaven
Jennifer, owner of a cake and pastry business, first met Benjamin, a ministry coordinator, at a young adults church retreat. Family friends worked behind the scenes to strike a flame between the two. When it was time to propose, Benjamin’s plans for a picnic were rained out, but he was not deterred. He read Jennifer a special bible verse expressing his feelings, dropped to one knee and opened a box with a ring made of string. The Count of Monte Cristo fans always joked they would have a string engagement ring.
They were married at Ashton Gardens in Corinth, Texas. Jennifer wore a dress from Allure bridal designs she found at Lulu’s in Dallas and Legacy Cakes in Grapevine created the perfect cake. They enjoyed the vibrant waters of Playa Del Carmen on their honeymoon.
Tree of Love
Their unique guest book was made of old fence boards and featured a painting of a boy and girl sharing an apple underneath the apple tree. Guests wrote their names on the leaves creating a memorable souvenir.
