This afternoon I am handing the blog over to music expert Joe Hoten from Bands for Hire as...
Ramsie and Cary were married on the 2nd April at the Dimebox Ballroom in Austin, Texas. This is a simple, rustic wedding full of southern charm captured beautifully by Alison Epps. The Bride looks stunning in a boho style dress and flower crown, and the groom looks equally stylish in a relaxed waistcoat and chinos combo. So perfect for their wedding venue. With portraits in a meadow with their dogs, beautifully colourful place settings, and an outdoor ceremony this wedding had a relaxed and family vibe that I just adore, and the happy couples smiles say it all!
“There we were, at the White Horse, The infamous east Austin honky-tonk. Cary had just finished a set on drums, and Ramsie, visiting from Victor, ID was telling jokes to a group of friends on the patio outside. She was in town making a final decision as to whether or not she would be moving to Austin.When Cary walked up to the group, he was introduced to Ramsie. He said, “Hi-Yeah, we’ve met before! How ya doing’?” To which Ramsie replied dryly, “No. We’ve never met before.” She was lying of course, she did remember meeting him. But because she was taken aback by his charming personality and rugged good looks, she had to keep him on his toes. Even though the first introduction was very brief, and almost a year prior, but Cary hadn’t forgotten about it. There was something about her…. So this time around, he made sure she wouldn’t forget him again. The two danced around Austin’s east-side, went two-stepping at the White Horse, played in/ watched “eagleize It” (the worlds greatest Eagles tribute band), and all the while, laughing at Ramie’s terrible jokes.Ramsie would return to Victor a few days later, but a spark was lit. Not long after the Austin meeting (the second one), Cary and Ramsie had their first official date: A quick, casual coffee shop date. Just kidding, it was a week together in the Tetons. In January. Cross-country skiing to natural hot-springs near Yellowstone, horse-back riding through snow, feeding livestock from a horse-drawn sled, down-hill skiing at Grand Targhee, Bruce Springsteen Sing-a-longs in the old truck with Lola (the dog), and random dance lessons from a TSA security Agent, etc… needless to say, it was a successful first date. ”
