Katie Michelle Dugan and Timothy Louis Moe were united in marriage at 6 p.m. on Oct. 15, 2011 at Westlake Baptist Church in Chandler, with Keith Davis officiating.
Katie is the daughter of Stan and Sherilyn Dugan of Corsicana, and Timothy is the son of Louis and Alice Moe of Chandler.
The church altar was decorated with black wrought iron backdrops covered with tulle, white twinkle lights, white flowers, greenery and a small crystal chandelier positioned above an archway where the bride and groom exchanged vows. The long center aisle was candlelit and covered with small white rose petals. Beautiful chandelier lights in the church were dimmed, giving the room a glowing, romantic ambiance.
Given in marriage by her parents and escorted by her father, the bride entered to Josh Groban’s “When You Say You Love Me.” Her dress was a white, strapless, A-lined lace gown with embroidered daisy-shaped flowers, tiny seed pearls, sequins, and a chapel-length matching train shimmered and sparkled as she walked down the aisle. A white satin sash with crystal beaded embellishment accented her dress at the waist. The bride wore a double-layered, waist-length veil edged with seed pearls and sequins. She also wore her late grandmother’s crystal necklace. She carried a colorful fall bouquet consisting of red and orange Gerber daisies, purple statice, purple carnations, red Safari Sunset, red and yellow roses, orange lilies and red hypericum berries. Also incorporated into her bouquet was a dainty embroidered handkerchief carried by her mother and late grandmother.
The bride had two maids of honor — Nicole Seely of Dallas, and Evelyn Nelson of Blooming Grove, both lifelong friends. Bridesmaids included Whitney Hopper of Athens, and Amy Callaway of Spurger. The girls wore black, knee-length, cotton halter-style dresses and carried bouquets similar to the bride’s. Best man was Nick Martin of Frankston, long-time friend of the groom. Groomsmen included Adam Travis of Chandler, Clint Cooper and Ben Carter, both of Tyler. Flower girls were Kiley Washington, niece of the groom, and Jordan Green, cousin of the groom. Ring bearer was Hunter Washington, nephew of the groom.
Special music was provided by Louis Moe, who sang Josh Turner’s “Soulmate,” and Evelyn Nelson, who sang the couple’s favorite hymn, “Sweet, Sweet Spirit.”
Following the ceremony, a dinner/dance reception was held in the Fellowship Hall. The bride’s three-layered white cake contained fresh flowers between each layer, strawberry cream filling, and white chocolate fondant on the outside decorated to pattern her dress. The groom’s dark chocolate cake perfectly resembled a “twisted” Rubik’s Cube. The unique buffet consisted of several large round tables forming a daisy with a creative Hawaiian theme in the center.
The bride and groom performed their first dance to George Strait’s “I Cross My Heart,” and the bride followed by dancing with her father to “Have I Told You Lately” by Rod Stewart. Friends and family, who traveled from Georgia, Arkansas, Houston, Corpus Christi, San Antonio, the D/FW area, Corsicana and various other locations, enjoyed a traditional dance until the newlyweds exited through a dazzling display of sparklers and departed for an eight-day Hawaiian honeymoon.
The couple reside in Camden, Ark. where Timothy is employed at Lockheed-Martin as a test engineer, and Katie is employed as a math instructor at Camden-Fairview ISD.
