Dallas couple Erin Frost and Gus Vaughan shared an enchanted moment at the altar recently, as they were united in holy matrimony at Highland Park Methodist Church. Erin is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs Esteban Huerta Gonzales and Mr. and Mrs. Phillip Scott Frost, both of Dallas. Her grandmothers in attendance were Elinor Frost of Florida and Meriel Moore of Dallas. Gus is the son of Mr. and Mrs. George C. Vaughan of San Antonio, and the grandson of Phyllis Vaughan of San Antonio and Mr. Lon Cartwright of South Texas.

The ceremony had both a classic and vintage feel to it, with elements of “something blue.” Designed by Rosa Clara, Erin’s ivory and lace A-line silhouette gown with a sweetheart neckline and traditional lace perfectly matched the appliqué on her cathedral length veil. It was handmade 33 years ago in St. Louis and was worn by Erin’s mother on her wedding day. The blue element was included when Erin carried a beautiful diamond and sapphire pin on her floral bouquet. The pin was a Vaughan family heirloom given to her from the groom’s great aunt, Elizabeth Vaughan Bishop.

Erin’s younger sister Lainey Frost sang “Love Never Fails” at the wedding ceremony, based upon the passage from 1 Corinthians. Following the ceremony was the reception at the Brook Hollow Golf Club in Dallas. After the newlyweds made their entrance at the reception, the bride’s uncle, Abbot Thomas Frerking of St. Louis Abbey, gave a blessing on the marriage in front of friends and family.

The event’s embellishments were far from organic, thanks to expert event planner Ann Pittman and her team. The bride maintained her wedding glow throughout the evening courtesy of makeup artist Lenore Caulton-Downey and hair stylist James Defrange of Pura Vida Salon.

The wedding was embellished with floral designs by Junior of Garden Floral Designs and a decadent cake by Panini Bakery and Cakes was served at the reception. The groom’s cake topper was a made-to-scale oil rig that he built entirely of Legos with the help of his co-workers at British Petroleum. The punch bowl was also a Vaughan family heirloom; it was originally given to Gus’ great-great grandfather George C Vaughan and has been passed down for generations. It was a wedding of legacy and tradition enjoyed by the happy couple and their family and friends. Guests danced the night away before Erin and Gus left on an exotic honeymoon in the Turks and Caicos, a fitting choice that equated with the stunning ceremony and reception.
