A sneak peak into Lela’s own wedding…

What she wore: “I made my own wedding dress. I sent off the pattern to India since I had a tree branch embroidered on the side. I even had twigs in my hair. I maybe went a little far with the theme!”

First dance song: “My husband’s last name is Jones, so we danced to ‘Me and Mrs. Jones.’ I love that song, but I think it’s actually about an adulterer.”

Wedding cake: “We had both a brides cake and a grooms cake which is more traditional in the South. The brides cake were an angel food cup cake with an almond and orange butter cream icing. The grooms cake was a chocolate cake with a chocolate mousse and caramel filling and frosted with a chocolate ganache and large chocolate shavings. All delicious!”

Theme: “We gave saplings out as our wedding favor, and every year we get a picture of some of these saplings that have grown into huge trees. Only three or four actually survived out of 650. I’m sure some didn’t even make it off the airplane!”

Décor: “I love how Texans will do a lot of outfit changes. They don’t do the low-key affair, and I’m all for that. My wedding was kind of big. We had 650 people, and our theme centered around trees. They’re a real symbol of strength. We had two great oaks at the altar.”

Best gift: “I still love my wedding china—glazed, Japanese ceramic pieces from Takashimaya. It was over the top! My guests could only purchase them at Takashimaya New York, which was difficult for my Texan friends who weren’t local and were used to going to Neiman’s. It breaks my heart when any of the china chips today, since I can’t replace them.

Invitation: “It was on a heavy card stock and had an elm tree at the top. I used a dark chocolate brown color and modern font.”
