The Perennial Garden in the Fort Worth Botanic Gardens in Fort Worth, Texas provided the romantic setting for the March 21, 2009, nuptials of Micah Danielle Stephens and Jeffery Wayne Horner.

The small family ceremony was held at one-thirty in the afternoon, with Mr. Robert Nixon serving as the officiating minister. Music was provided by Forte Strings, a string quartet from the Fort Worth area.

The bride wore a gown designed by Gavin Michaels for 2B Bride. The gown was a hundred percent natural ivory silk and featured a sweetheart neckline, dropped waist, ruched bodice, V-cut back with covered buttons, and semi-chapel-length train. The simple elegance of the dress was matched with a silk headband designed by Sarah Gabriel and adorned with Swarovski rhinestones and tulle overlay. The bridal bouquet was ivory calla lilies with stems wrapped in ivory and green ribbon.

The bridesmaids wore navy blue ankle-length chiffon halter dresses, and each carried a hand-tied bouquet of three black calla lilies. Sarah Brennan, best friend and college soccer teammate, served as the maid of honor. Lauren Ross, childhood friend, and Jennifer Hall, the groom's sister, served as the bridal attendants. Aligrace Hall and Tatum Hall, the groom's nieces, served as the flower girls. Josh Homer, the groom's brother, served as the best man. Trevor Williams, the groom's nephew, and Israel Stephens, the bride's brother, served as the groomsmen. Peyton Stephens, the bride's nephew, served as the ring bearer.

The reception was filled with true Texas style at the Reata on the rooftop in downtown Fort Worth. To match the Texas-themed reception, the bride and groom changed into cowboy boots, and the groom added a cowboy hat for their first introduction as Mr. and Mrs. Jeff Homer.

The four-tiered wedding cake, provided by Creme de la Creme Catering in Fort Worth, was not the typical wedding cake and instead was a cupcake cake. The cupcake stand was a faux wedding cake iced with traditional ivory buttercream and adorned with navy blue ribbon. The cupcakes were decorated with a navy monogram or navy dots and wrapped in silver liners. Guests were treated to a trio of choices including strawberry with traditional buttercream frosting chocolate with coconut buttercream frosting and white with cream cheese frosting.

At the completion of the reception, the bride and groom were whisked away in a horse-drawn carriage, which featured a "Just Married" sign on the back.

On the eve of the wedding Ms. Cathy Horner hosted a rehearsal dinner for the wedding party and family at Pappasito's Cantina in Fort Worth.

Micah and Jeff now reside in Jackson, where Micah is an accountant at St. Dominic's-Jackson Memorial Hospital and Jeff is a manager at Home LLP.
