Caffey, Mack marry
Kimberly Ann Caffey and Rodger Alston Mack, both of New Braunfels, were united in marriage on May IO, 1997. The Reverend Scott Crenshaw, of Wimberly, Texas, performed the double-ring ceremony.
The bride is the daughter of Ted and Alice Caffey, of New Braunfels. She is the granddaughter of Mr. and Mrs. Bill W. Colby, of San Angelo, Texas, and Mr. and Mrs. Lester Caffey of New Braunfels. The groom is the son of Glenn and Janet Mack of New Braunfels. He is the grandson of Mrs. Marie Gartman of Santa Fe, Texas, and Mrs. Leah Mack of Dickinson, Texas.
The bride was given in marriage by her father, Mr. Ted Caffey. The bride wore an off-the-shoulder Eve of Milady lace and tulle creation. The white wedding gown bodice was adorned with hand-made lace, pearls, and see-through lace sleeves with tiny white satin buttons at the wrists. The tulle skirt of the wedding dress was enhanced with pearls, sequins and white lace appliques and a satin binding at the hem, topped off with a chapel-length tulle and pearl train. The bride also wore an alternating cathedral-length veil accented with a lace hand-beaded clasp in which the lace was from the groom’s mother’s original wedding dress. Champagne pearls, which were given as a gift for the tradition of something new, cascaded around the bride’s neck and were accented by simple pearl and diamond earrings to also carry on in the tradition of something borrowed.
Flowers for the garden ceremony and reception were designed by The Party Animal of New Braunfels. The bride’s bouquet was fashioned in a brass tussy mussy and presented with fresh white crystalline roses. red roses, white stock, white bavardia, white freesia, and fresh greenery. The tussy mussy is an old New England custom in which the king wanted to give to his bride a very special gift on the day of her wedding. He had one of his craftsmen fashion a holder made of gold and brass in which he could have his gardener place some fresh flowers for his bride. The bouquet was then delivered to the bride as a sign of his affection and everlasting love for her. In return she carried the bouquet when they wed to show her appreciation and undying love for him. Therefore, this is why the groom pays for the bride’s bouquet and the bride of today carries a bouquet of flowers which represents their love for each other.
The garden ceremony site was adorned with a special hand-made wrought iron gazebo made especially for the bride and groom in Monterrey. Mexico. The gazebo, which will now serve as the couple’s bedstead, will carry on a special wedding tradition that a couple who marries under an arch will have everlasting love. The wedding aisle was aligned with four hand-made wrought iron arches which were covered in fresh white statis and fresh dark green eucalyptus. The hand-painted aisle runner, embossed with magnolias and greenery, was designed by Mrs. Sherry Snowden and hand-painted by Mrs. Snowden, the bride and her mother. The garden ceremony site was also accentuated with numerous six-foot garden candles and fresh greenery. White wooden chairs were aligned in a crescent shape for the seated guests and were accented with white satin

bows. A unity candle made especially for Kimberly and Rodger was placed on a white satin-draped table under the gazebo with fresh greenery, white roses and white stock accenting the candles. The black baby grand piano on the lush green lawn completed the final romantic touch to the ceremony.
Each attendant wore a black and white shantung ankle-length sheath. The empire white bodice of the dress was complimented with lace, sequins and pearls and buttoned at the back of the neck.

Each charm has a special meaning and as each bridesmaid pulls a ribbon from the cake tradition says that a special message will wish them the luck of whatever charm they have chosen to pull, especially for the year that follows the wedding.
