Mr. and Mrs. Kenny Graber wed at Cochino Lodge

April 12, 2014

Jessica and Kenny were married at Cochino with  a very exclusive wedding of close family and friends.  A many faceted wedding that lasted 3 days.  The wedding party began to arrive on Friday to begin getting ready for the festivities. Mother of the Bride, Judy, and the bride had it all worked out and the decorating went very smoothly. Some fished and some enjoyed the view and quietness of the countryside.  The guests came from Dallas, Houston, Hurst, Bed ford, Euless, California, Onalaska and Livingston. Wedding music as well as dance and karaoke was provided by Judy Fields, FX Entertainment of Douglas. Ms. FIelds also assists in the timely procession of the wedding party to the ceremonial site. She is great and gets it done on time.   Cooking went on all day Saturday with a bar-q-Pitt that was state of the art. Ken Graber, father of the groom, was in charge of the food. Delicious.    Fishing was enjoyed and after the wedding when the guests retired to their cabins for more celebration, the sounds of the night were awesome. The Bull Frogs were at a Low pitch and very loud.  The guests were a very fun loving group who enjoyed each others company throughout.  

What a Beautiful Bride !!!












Such Glamour. Just Beautiful and so feisty and fun. They Laughed the whole time. Fun!!!
