Are you planning your first Thanksgiving in your new home? I will be honest, I have never had the responsibility of planning a large family holiday dinner, because my mother is an expert at it, and I believe in letting people shine in roles they were born to play. But when I do, I will definitely look back on this wedding for some cornucopious inspiration.
John and Mary Ellen had their wedding at the beginning of the fall season at Polly's Chapel outside of Bandera, Texas. It was a small wedding so they had their close friends and family transported by bus to the remote hills of Piper's Creek to this Texas Historical landmark for the ceremony. Mary Ellen's friend played a beautiful song on her guitar to walk her down the aisle. The minister told the story of the history of the chapel, and how it related to this couple building their lives together in faith.

After the sunset ceremony, the couple hosted their guests at The Little Gretel Restaurant in Boerne, Texas across on the bank of the Cibolo Creek. This quaint restaurant offered an intimate setting for their wedding dinner. The couple enjoyed wine and great conversation with friends as this perfect evening came to an end. Congratulations to Mary Ellen and John Gebhard!
