The five-tier cake was covered in white fondant, small gold and green vines, and light pink roses and pearls. “Our baker named it ‘The Lani’ and said she’d never made such a beautiful cake,” says Lani.

Lani and Matt fell in love with the rustic cottages and gorgeous greens of Elmwood Gardens. The bride walked under a wooden archway draped with twinkling lights to the light-strewn gazebo altar.

“We used white linens and candles on the tables plus freshly cut flowers from the gardens,” says Lani. “The natural beauty of the site provided most of the decorations -- simple but elegant.”

Lani & Matt in Palestine, TX

Lani Lowe, a 24-year-old public relations rep, and Matt Caffey, a 24-year-old English teacher, didn’t just vow to stay together through sickness and health -- that’s how they met! The Bride Lani Lowe The Groom Matt Caffey The Date March 19 Their first run-in came when a cold-stricken Lani rallied a few friends to escort her to the college health center to see a doctor. The receptionist who checked them in was a friend who introduced the group to his coworker, Matt. Through her stuffiness, Lani remembers Matt clearly: “His eyes looked an amazing bright blue -- adorable.” About six months later, the two acquaintances became more after a volunteer shift at their church. A group dinner turned into a twosome when they got chocolate milkshakes and stayed up giggling until 4 a.m. “We were so ridiculously comfortable around one another that we both knew there was something there.” Ten short months later, Matt proposed near a lake at a summer camp where Lani worked. “All our friends had gone to bed already,” says Lani. “I saw one stranger on the path back to camp, and I hugged her, screeching, ‘I just got engaged!’”
