Style- Studed Texas Union
October 6, 2013
On new Year’s eve 2013, 6-time wrangler national Finals rodeo qualifier, Tyson Durfey proposed to Australian born country music singer/song writer Shea Fisher in new York City’s Central Park. The couple met at the Houston livestock show and rodeo in 2011. One hundred eighty guests from Scotland, Canada, Brazil, Australia, and all over the United States converged on dripping springs, Texas for the October 6th ceremony at Vista west ranch where the tie-down roper and singer tied the knot.
Vista West was perfect for a glamorous, country chic wedding. The ceremony was held outdoors under an arbor filled with fresh cut roses overlooking the scenic Texas Hill Country. Ted Wiese, a rodeo cowboy minister, performed the ceremony. Shea carried a picture of her sister Tami, who passed in 2010, in a locket on her bouquet.
Following the two-ring ceremony, guests moved to an outdoor garden for cocktails. The reception was held in a barn a few steps from the ceremony site. Guests created their own cheesecake masterpieces at a cheesecake station and posed for fun pictures at the photo booth. Shea spent months getting custom-made Corral boots for the bridesmaids and groomsmen. All were personalized with initials on pull tags. The bride’s and groom’s boots said “I” on one and “DO” on the other. The bride wore the ‘Sloan’ gown by Maggie Sottero and her hair was in a flattering side ponytail.
The couple honeymooned in Bora Bora and Australia after the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo.
