Spring has definitely sprung at The Brooks, with what’s been dubbed the ‘Wedding Season’, in full bloom! The brides, each one, beautiful, glowing, and starry eyed with expectation and joy in the man she loves… the one who’s, well, man enough to admit, “I’ve fallen for this girl!”

What can we say, but THANK YOU?! Dec 20, 2014 3:12 PM  

Jen and Matt Wedding-410

December!  WOW does a year ever roll around fast !

And as this year comes to an end I am thinking about the two words that Steve and I have uttered most throughout this entire project of building the Brooks at Weatherford. … Throughout this year of making, watching, the dream unfold…  Our first Bride and Groom even captured those words for us in picture:  “Thank You”!  Thank You God, foremost !  Thank you to so many that helped us make this happen!  Designed, built and ready 9 months time! Ready for real weddings!  We did beg, more than a few times, “God, please help us make it!”,  And He did !   With our first three weddings on the calendar, we had to be finished!  And we were!  Right on time!  Every wedding was wonderful, beautiful, and fun!  I hope they are all like that!  We have met such wonderful people.  Of course, the couples we meet are so in love that it can’t help but be contagious! It is so fun to see these couples smiling from ear to ear and I love hearing the proposal stories!  Guys are under a lot of pressure today, to be quite the romantic and creative genius when it comes to the proposal!  I’ve noticed too, that almost every couple that stands together in front of those beautiful arched windows in the chapel, spontaneously hug and dreamily smile at each other!  Something about that chapel!  The word we hear most when people come to see The Brooks at Weatherford is “Wow!  People love it!

Brand New Facility, and people are super excited when they come see us. They want to get married here!

Still bragging on my hubby…His incredible architect mind has done it again…Designed and Built a most wonderfully unique place. Sometimes I just love the way his mind works! November brought more firsts for us! The first couple to say “The Brooks is the place for our wedding!!!”…Austin Wendell and beautiful bride to be, Charlie Welch. They really did ‘love us at hello’, as The Brooks at Weatherford was only the drawings and construction slabs when they said, “We love it!” AND November 7 became their wedding date.

Even in the sweltering heat of August, the breeze and open air of the chapel and venue kept us cool and allowed for quite a fun night! We welcomed over 100 people to the ‘Hard Hat Tour’ as they come to see just what The Brooks at Weatherford is all about! Fans, generator lights, and obvious construction let everyone know, The Brooks at Weatherford is still a work in progress but as we heard people saying all night, “It is already beautiful.”

Build Update #3 – Coming to life! Apr 15, 2014 11:41 AM

… Like building a beautiful life together, it doesn’t happen by accident, or overnight!

Pray, Focus, Plan, and pray some more! It also doesn’t happen alone. Just like many hands make a project come together, many lives influence your marriage. It’s ok, wise even, to ask advice: Take the good.  Ask for help, even pay for it when necessary! Surround yourselves with support.
