We did it!! With some 6 years together achieving awesome things, Philip and I finally got married!
For many we’re known as Mr and Mrs Casa de Campo – thanks to this website (Casa de Campo Living), and our other publications (CasaLife and TODO Casa de Campo), as well as community events (the Casa de Campo Copa Semana Santa polo tournament the most recent example)… which is exactly why we decided NOT to get married in Casa de Campo – we wanted something, different, fun and exciting. And we found that in Texas!
Jetting into Dallas, Texas just under a week before the big day, our first task was getting “The Marriage Licence”. It was a fun little outing to the County Clerks Office… Check out our video of the experience:
With that little chore out of the way, all that was left was a little cowboy shopping and merry making! And so off we went to the Stockyards in Fort Worth (cowboy central) where we stocked up on cowboy boots, hats and belts and met our cowboy and cowgirl guests who flew in from around the world to join us for our special day.
And so it was on Tuesday June 9th on an incredibly hot day (yes hotter than the Dominican Republic), I (Rebecca Hughes) walked down the aisle on the arm of my father (Peter Hughes) accompanied by a real Western band, and in front of Sheriff Pat Earl Wyatt said “I do” and officially became Mrs Rebecca Silvestri!
And that’ll be all for today! Right now ladies and gentlemen Philip and I are in the midst of our honeymoon, and so for the full details and many many more photos and videos y’all just have to wait!! We’ll publish more soon we promise!!
Most pics used in this article were taken by our favorite Casa de Campo based photographer – Lauren Llenas who flew in especially for the occasion! You will also find some pictures taken by Andrea Jones Photography of Fort Worth. We’ll be bringing you lots more soon!
Enjoy! And a HUGE thank you to everyone who came out to Fort Worth and celebrated with us – it really was the BEST wedding ever… You guys made it so special! And a BIG thank you to all those who couldn’t make it but who sent us best wishes, congratulations and gifts!
