The Colorado River in Lost Pines, Texas was the setting for the Sept. 29 wedding of Sara Elizabeth Bahner and Ryan Christopher Eastman. Joel Morgan Eastman performed the ceremony. An arbor of flowers adorned the bank of the river, and fresh green moss covered the dock at the outdoor wedding during sunset. Music was presented by Eli and Lucas Bahner, and musicians from the University of Texas.
The bride wore a silk, lace candlelight Martina Liana strapless gown with a full length scalloped train. Her dress was adorned with angel satin appliqués, Swarovski crystals and diamante embellishments. Her candlelight halo-styled veil was silk, and she carried a bouquet of white lilies, orchids, lily of the valley, star of Bethlehem, white hydrangeas and white tea roses. Inside the bouquet, she carried two lockets of her grandfathers.
The ring bearer carried a pillow made of woven ties that belonged to the bride's late grandfather.
The parent's blessing was given by Susan Bahner and JoAnne Eastman.
The ceremony was followed by dinner at the LBJ Pavilion, and a reception at the Baron's Ballroom at the Hyatt Lost Pines Resort.
Parents of the couple are Mr. and Mrs. Brent Bahner, Ardmore; and Mr. and Mrs. Ward T. Eastman, McKinney, Texas.
