Julie & Chad: A Formal Wedding in San Antonio, TX
Julie and Chad planned a weekend wedding that thrilled both young and old: hayrides, a petting zoo, armadillo races, a live country western concert, and line dancing were just a few of the Texas-style activities guests encountered. THE BRIDE Julie Spellman THE GROOM Chad Sweet THE DATE October 3 When Julie first met Chad, both were convinced a relationship would never work. They had clicked instantly and had plenty in common (both had been living in Asia on and off for years -- they met at the wedding of a mutual friend in Singapore), but Julie, 37, a partner in a law firm, had just moved back to Hong Kong, and Chad, 35, a vice president and financial adviser at an investment bank, had recently returned to Texas. In spite of their different paths, the bride explains, their shared passions and experiences made them decide that a relationship was worth exploring. About two years after they met, nearly 250 friends and family members joined them for their wedding in another far-flung destination: San Antonio.
