Paige Nettles and Ryan Montgomery recently tied the knot in a picturesque ceremony and celebration at Boot Ranch, the exclusive enclave set amongst the countryside near Fredericksburg, Texas.
Paige, the bride, was born and raised in Fort Worth and is the daughter of Betsy and Charlie Nettles, who are current residents of Houston. Paige’s maternal grandmother is Patricia Cook of Houston. Her grandfather Charles Nettles Sr. started the Nettles’ family manufacturing company Tex-Trude, where Paige works and continues to help grow the company. The groom, Ryan, is the son of Martha and Ross Montgomery of Albany, Texas. His father currently serves as county judge in Albany, and Ryan works for Structural and Steel in Fort Worth.
Paige’s father Charlie Nettles was one of the founding members of Boot Ranch, the premier golf community in the Texas Hill Country that hosted their wedding ceremony and reception. Paige has been visiting Boot Ranch with her family since she was young. Her love for the Ranch has only grown throughout the years, particularly because many fond memories of dating Ryan were made there. The couple always knew Boot Ranch would be the perfectly picturesque setting to recite their vows.
The newlyweds enjoyed an impressive reception coordinated by the capable wedding planner Keely Thorne. Austin-based Merveille Event Design staged the unforgettable floral arrangements, bouquets, and the event theme that set the romantic backdrop for the couple’s perfect day. All purple elements of décor in the ceremony were dedicated in memory of Ryan’s cousin and best friend, Sarah Montgomery. Memphis Train, one of the most well known wedding bands in the country, entertained the happy couple and their guests. Harbor Lights Gospel joined the band in providing unforgettable music for the reception as well. The guests enjoyed delicious cakes and dessert assortments provided by Cake Plate.
One of the most beautiful moments was captured when the newly pronounced Mr. and Mrs. Montgomery took their first ride together as husband and wife in a horse drawn carriage provided by Bluebonnet Carriage Company of San Antonio. Paige expressed that her wedding was a dream come true for she and her husband, Ryan. Following the ceremony and reception, the couple jetted off to enjoy a week-long honeymoon, beginning their “happily ever after.”
