The wedding cake was gluten-free, with the flour supplied by the couple’s friend Ina Manaster. The gown was customized by Oscar De la salas and Tamara Crawford to match Jill’s vision of how she wanted it to look.

McKenzie and Scott began their relationship as friends at TCU. During junior year, when they traveled with other friends to Phoenix for the Fiesta Bowl, they realized they could be much more than friends. As timing would have it, McKenzie was preparing for a semester abroad. They decided the next best thing to dating would be to correspond while she was away. She sent postcards of her travels, and he wrote letters from Fort Worth. When she returned, they made things official.

Five years later, Scott proposed to McKenzie. They used a postcard theme in their wedding, including postcards instead of a traditional guestbook. The centerpieces reiterated the theme, incorporating postcards dating back to the early 1900s from the mother of the bride’s side of the family.

When Alex and David said they wanted to get married at the family’s ranch in Page Springs, it came as no surprise. Alex had been raised going to a “ranch” with her family since she was a child, whether to a working cattle ranch or to the family’s Page Springs ranch.

The D.A.Ranch in Page Springs is divided into two areas, one a well-known wedding venue – The Lodge– and the second, a Petznick family getaway. The Lodge was not what Alex had in mind. Her vision became a reality and a venue was constructed in front of the old red barn and the ceremony was built in front of a beautiful tree, which became the theme of the wedding. The couple even “branded” the tree as part of their unity ceremony, adding to the very special day with family and friends.

A traditional American ceremony and reception were held Saturday evening. Two of Megan’s mother’s best friends, a Unitarian minister and a retired judge, officiated.
