Aggie Wedding Reception
The Firehouse Saloon
You’ve never been to a Texas wedding until you have experienced an ‘Aggie‘ wedding!
Megan and Patrick are both graduates of Texas A&M. They met in Aggieland (also known as College Station) after a Fightin’ Texas Aggie football game. They were with their respective best friends who knew each other, and introduced them at the Mad Hatter’s bar. Patrick proposed on the beach in Galveston, TX. It was just the two of them sharing lunch together. He had the most beautiful pear shaped diamond ring in the world for Megan! Galveston, TX is a very special place for Megan. She grew up going to the beach with her family and grandparents.
Megan and Patrick’s wedding revealed their personalities with a formal wedding, and a “get down good ole’ time” reception at The Firehouse Saloon in Houston, Texas.
The Firehouse Saloon is a true Texas “honky tonk”, complete with neon beer signs, and boots hanging from the ceiling. The bride and her attendants (including the darling flower girls and ring bearers) changed into cowboy boots for the reception.
This is where the intense school spirit and passion really flowed! Camaraderie was apparent when they began to sing the Aggie War Hymn with all of the other Aggies in attendance! Singing the fight song with their arms around each other in a gigantic circle, swaying back and forth is a powerful tradition at Aggie weddings! Of course it wouldn’t be an Aggie wedding without a WHOOP!!! Gig’em, Aggies!
The groom’s two-tiered chocolate cake was topped with a large gold Aggie Ring, featuring the bride and groom’s class year; 2007. The bride’s cake was a four-tiered cake, with alternating tiers of white wedding cake and carrot cake, layered with cream cheese icing, and frosted with vanilla buttercream. The bride’s cake was adorned with gorgeous ivory and blush peonies flowers. Both cakes were created by Edible Designs by Jessie.
Megan’s stunning gown was love at first sight. It was the first dress she tried on.
The dress was ivory, made of alencon lace, by La Sposa. The veil was handmade by Tracey, the mother of the bride from yards and yards of tulle. The bride wore a garter, given to her by her ‘alternate’ mothers, Tracey’s three best friends from college, Julie, Cecilia and Glenda. The garter had been made by the bride’s grandmother.
After their lovely formal wedding ceremony and fun-filled Aggie wedding reception, Megan and Patrick were off to spend their honeymoon in Guanacaste, Costa Rica.
The happy, newlywed Aggie couple feel truly blessed to have such wonderful families and friends. “The love and support we have received throughout our lives was very visible at our wedding and we could not have asked for a more beautiful, fun and fabulous day.”
Megan and Patrick, we wish you a beautiful and blessed marriage!
