Jessica Leigh Morris and Matthew Lane Nelms were united in marriage on Tuesday, June 18, 2019 at 2 o’clock in the afternoon at Schwabacher’s Landing in the Grand Teton National Park. The double ring ceremony was officiated by the bride’s childhood friend, Vincent Warwick. Following the ceremony, the couple hosted a seated dinner at Linn Canyon Ranch.
The bride was presented in marriage and escorted on the arm of her mother. Jessica wore a sheath bridal gown and carried a brightly colored bouquet of peonies, orange ranunculus, eryngium, dahlias, hypericum, amaranthus, and wispy greenery designed by MD Nursery. Jamye Chrisman Photography captured the memories beautifully and their four-tier multi flavored cake was decorated by Paisley Cakes.
Teton Valley was an easy choice for this destination wedding as the couple has spent their last two summers vacationing there with family and fell in love with the outdoor scenery. On the eve of the wedding, the groom’s parents hosted a rehearsal lunch at Warbirds Café in Driggs, ID. A bridal breakfast was held the following morning at Teton Springs Spa and all wedding attendees were shuttled to the national park.
The bride is the daughter of Kathy Hubbard Morris and Terrence Lee Morris of Houston, Texas. She is the granddaughter of Janet Lackey Paulett and the late David Starr Paulett, of Houston, Texas and Sue Morris Baker and James Baker, of Williamsburg, Virginia.
The groom is the son of Sally Armentrout Nelms and Harry “Dusty” Hobbs Nelms, Jr. of Georgetown, Texas. He is the grandson of the late Audrey Terrell Nelms and Harry “Buddy” Hobbs Nelms, Sr. of Dallas and the late Marguerite Hawk Armentrout and Charles D. Armentrout of Dallas, Texas.
Following their wedding trip to Glacier National Park and Canada, the newlyweds have made Austin, Texas their home.
