Texas Prison Wedding traditions at TDCJ Clemens

Devon & Austin
July 10, 2018
TDCJ Clemens

With weddings come tradition to bring luck and happiness.  Texas Prison Weddings are no different, each has their own story to tell.

                                                Something Old
                                                Something New
                                                Something Borrowed
                                                Something Blue

      A 1993 penny to represent the year the groom was born
      A special gift from the groom made just for his bride
      A borrowed ring of 3 stones for past, present and future happiness
      A beautiful bride dressed in a perfect shade of blue

The family was there to greet Devon with bubbles filling the room as she entered the door.  A small reception was waiting cake and even a special message on the mirror. 

"I'm really proud and grateful for my family doing all this."

It's good to have the support of family and friends when you get married, even more so when your new spouse can't be there with you at the moment.  Many blessings and much luck to Devon and Austin on their journey.

Texas Prison Wedding delayed at TDCJ Connally

Brianna and Kiedric
July 26, 2018
TDCJ Connally

The bride and I arrived at Connally 30 minutes early.  We were told to come back at 5 minutes til ceremony time.  We waited.

We went back only to be told that they had a power outage and were working with limited power from the generator.  They said we could wait or reschedule.  We waited.

About 30 minutes later, they signaled for us to come in.  Brianna lightheartedly said, "third times' a charm"

Between coming early and the delay due to power outage, Brianna and I waited patiently about an hour.

However when Keidric and Brianna saw each other, it was all forgotten.  Since no one objected, Keidric shared their Memorable Moment and are now man and wife.

Another Texas Prison Wedding at TDCJ Murray

Paul & Felicia

TDCJ Murray

From across the room, Paul noticed the most beautiful woman in the world.
Could it really be, LOVE at first sight?

It's usually the bride that's nervous or 'has butterflies' but not this time.   Paul said that he was glad he came up the night before because he was so nervous he wasn't able to sleep.

Bashful Bride at TDCJ Michael Wedding

Israel and Aurora 
July 24, 2018
TDCJ Michael Unit

Aurora and I met early at the corner store in Tennessee Colony.  We discussed the ceremony and what to expect before going to the unit.

During the ceremony, Aurora would back away from the window.   A chair was placed behind her which didn't help. Ms Smith placed Aurora's hand on the window to help steady her and 'keep her in place'.   Israel and Aurora shared their vows or at least he did.  She was soo nervous, her whole body trembled.   If ever there was a bashful bride, Aurora took first place.

#TexasPrisonWeddings has several #ApprovedOfficiants available to help make that special Moment Memorable for your #TexasPrisonWedding

Texas Prison Weddings is what 'I DO'
