Cute College Co-eds
For Jorden and Ben, Syracuse University is more than just an institute of higher learning. It is where they met, where they fell in love, and where Ben proposed. They had returned to campus to attend a friend’s wedding. While taking a casual stroll through the quad, they stopped at Jorden’s favorite spot; Ben got down on one knee…”the rest is history!” Jorden says
They chose the Festival Hill Music Institute in Round Top, Texas for the ceremony and reception. Festival Hill has multiple venues on their 200-acre property. Ben and Jorden married at the Edythe Bates Old Chapel. The Tuscany-inspired reception was held just behind the chapel where the newlyweds, friends and family, danced the night away.
“Add personal touches to your wedding. People remember weddings filled with personal touches. For example: Our officiant read the same vows my grandfather read at my parents wedding; we included “our love story” in the programs- which were hand made by us; Ben threw my garter wrapped around a football because he was a former college football player; we had only our brothers and sisters in the bridal party, which made the day very intimate and our guests knew everyone standing by our sides.”
