What first began in a high school hallway slowly grew to a fully blossomed romance. After several years of dating, Caleb Adams Springer knew he couldn’t wait any longer to ask his high school sweetheart, Megan Claire Knight, to be his wife. Following a trail of rose petals and a string of lights through Camp Copass in Denton, Claire wandered upon a special spot where she found Caleb, down on one knee. Her enthusiastic response led to months of planning before the big day finally arrived.
The ceremony and reception were held at Ashton Gardens in Corinth, a venue Claire describes as “the perfect place for us to say ‘I do!’” A string quartet led the bride down the aisle, and as they stood surrounded by the chapel’s tall glass windows, the couple exchanged their own vows in front of family and friends. Caleb couldn’t take his eyes off his beautiful bride, who wore a stunning, lace-embroidered tea-length wedding dress. The gown’s finishing touch came courtesy of a local designer; a custom- made sash to match dresses Claire’s mother and sister wore.
Without a dry eye in the house, Claire and Caleb lit a traditional unity candle before heading off to the reception next door. Guests enjoyed the spread! From the mashed potato bar, the hydrangea cupcake tower and personalized Blue Bell ice cream cups (courtesy of Candy Haven in Denton), every last detail reflected the couple’s special touch.The dance floor stayed alive and well through- out the entire evening, thanks to the musical happenings of Mars Hill Live band. As soon as Caleb released Claire’s Oklahoma State garter, and Claire tossed her lovely bouquet of Hydrangeas, the newlyweds exited for their Caribbean honeymoon in true motorcyclestyle.
