The Couple
Michelle and Steven both grew up in Midland, but did not get to know each other until senior year at Baylor University.

The Proposal
The couple visited the groom’s ranch and drove around a bit before dinner. Michelle bent down to look at a baby calf and when she turned around, Steven was on bended knee! When they got back to the house with the news, Michelle’s family had joined in for the celebratory dinner.

The Party
Michelle’s family has a house at Horseshoe Bay; the bride was particularly drawn to the church’s floor-to-ceiling wall overlooking the water.
