From Bumble to Bend, for Reece and Katy the dating period was a whirlwind. Originally from Maryland, Katy was in Texas for a work assignment. She was only supposed to be in the state for 3-months but after meeting Reece, she knew it was forever.
After the first date of paddleboarding, followed by food at The Backyard in Waco, the duo spent as much time together as possible. The pieces really started coming together when Reece let the L-word slip, and Katy was offered a full-time position to stay in Texas permanently.
A year later, they’d planned a trip to Bend to go hiking. Unfortunately the park was closed, but Reece had much bigger plans for the day!
They found a pretty spot by the water and after asking Katy to get a good photo of the view, Reece got all set up and down on one knee. But Katy found a better vantage point for the photo and took off for a better view.
Reece got up, moved, set back up, and knelt back down, and that’s when Katy finally turned around. It was the perfect engagement.
Why the Silver Spur Resort?
The Silver Spur Resort was the first venue that Reece and Katy visited. When it came down to it the packages were perfect, the price was right, and the location was absolutely stunning.
The ceremony area, the barn for the reception, and an amazing number of on-site rooms and cabins for out of town guests sealed the deal. Plus it was in a very convenient location for all of their local guests.
Technology for the Win!
Despite the Covid-19 pandemic, Reece and Katy decided to go ahead with their special day. While it meant that not as many friends and family could attend, a remedy was available thanks to technology!
They were able to live-stream all of the special moments from the first dance to the cake cutting and everything in between. Even though the room wasn’t as full, they know in their hearts that they were able to celebrate with everyone they love!
Why Was Your Wedding Magical?
All of the vendors were a pleasure to work with and made it a breeze to have the day come together exactly as they envisioned. Plus the stress level was so low it seemed unreal they were planning a wedding day!
Their photographer, Kaitlyn with The Big and Bright was amazing and captured all of the moments they didn’t know they’d want to remember. The pictures were absolutely gorgeous and not a detail was missed.
