Former Texas Governor Rick Perry, Buzbee’s best man. He and his wife Anita were among the intimate clutch that circulated around the vast outdoor entertaining area where hosts Julie and Brook Brookshire set the stage for pre-nuptial partying.

The Brookshires had tapped Dennis Brackeen Design Group to create the romantic ambience that included vast arrangements of all white flowers from Lary’s Floral Designs. Red roses were a clever surprise in the party mix.
For the special evening, Frances partnered with Dallas-based designer Nardos Imam to create a unique gown, this one a tea length white frock embellished with bouquets of silk flowers.
