Teresa Marie Lowther and Solomon Bryan Mason IV were united in a service of Christian marriage Saturday, Feb. 13, 2010 at 6 p.m. in the sanctuary of St. Peter’s United Methodist Church in Katy under the direction of Susan Gaston, Altar Guild.
The traditional double-ring ceremony was officiated by Rev. William H. Watson. The groom’s grandfather, Rev. Solomon B. Mason Jr., participated in the ceremony as well. Nuptial music was provided by Avalon string quartet and trumpet, featuring the groom’s father as soloist. The church was filled with beautiful blush, pink, cream and champagne roses, ranunculus, hydrangeas, peonies, tulips, snapdragons and dendrobium orchids. Floral pomanders, tall candle stands with French silk ribbon streamers and flower blooms hanging from the tops adorned the sanctuary.
Given in marriage by her parents and escorted by her father, the bride was lovely in a strapless Kenneth Pool gown of ivory Windsor satin, exquisitely trimmed with three bands of Swarovski crystals and a gorgeous cathedral-length veil. She wore stunning pearl and diamond earrings, a special gift from her father. She carried a beautifully rounded bouquet of cream and blush pink roses, with crystals placed throughout the roses and stems wrapped in a cream criss-crossed ribbon with one-inch bands of crystals from her groom.
Following the ceremony, Mr. and Mrs. Lowther entertained with a beautiful reception dinner at Royal Oaks Country Club. The couple arrived in an Empress Vintage Rolls. Kevin and Pam Perkins led the blessing. Family and friends enjoyed the music of John Milstead of Tupelo, Miss. and also “The Works” band of Houston. The cakes were by Gina and the “Love” Candy Bar was a sweet treat. Blush pink, cream and champagne monogram B and T shaped flowers, heart shaped flowers and the many tall centerpiece arrangements with up light details cast a romantic glow as the couple mingled with cherished family and friends, many who came long distances in extreme weather.
Best Wishes Bryan and Teresa, and soon to be Happy Anniversary!
