Their wedding day arrived on April 20, 2013 and after all the planning and hard work the wedding turned out to be gorgeous! The weather was perfect and the scenery was stunning. The guests were seated in the front yard and enjoyed the view of Shoemaker Hill


Ranch as they looked out over a green pasture with a lake and several beautiful oak trees. The reception was enjoyed in the big back yard with lots of tasty treats, including hand dipped Blue Bell Ice Cream and dancing. Chelsey and Brandon would like to thank the following vendors for helping to make their wedding so special and memorable: Designs by D’Anne for making a beautiful and delicious bride’s cake, Vicki Lipsey for making the groom’s cake, Brenda Bing Catering for all the tasty reception foods, Brianne Campos Photography for capturing our special day, Lilies and Lace, and Christi Hanks from Christi’s Four Seasons for supplying beautiful flowers and doing a wonderful job at decorating as well as taking a lot of stress off the bride by being the wedding coordinator. Favorite moments: Both agreed that the moment they saw each other was their favorite, the first dance was so sacred and special, and for Chelsey the daddy daughter dance was a wonderful fun moment she was able to share with her dad.
