Jamie Tyler Feagin and Christopher Powel Snodgrass met at the Flora-Bama in 2006, but it wasn’t until the following year that the two caught each other’s eyes.
On January 17, 2015 the couple and some close friends from New Orleans decided to go to Mt. Bonnell, the highest point in Austin. The group hiked half way up the mountain, when Chris stopped to snap a picture of the group. Tyler was shocked when Chris then wanted to get a picture of just the two of them – Chris volunteering for a couple’s photo is pretty uncharacteristic.
While Tyler was getting ready to pose with Chris, two of their friends, Jimmy Stone and Aaron Dean spotted their opportunity and filmed Chris getting down on one knee asking Tyler to marry him. To this day Chris really isn’t sure if she actually said yes, but her shocked expression sealed the deal.
The Snodgrass/Diaz family hosted a rehearsal dinner at the Daniel H. Caswell House in Austin, Texas the night before the October 31, 2015 wedding.
On Halloween, Tyler and Chris said “I Do” at the Stonehouse Villa in Driftwood, Texas. The outdoor ceremony was planned by Erin Feemester of Pop Fizz Events. Tyler walked down the aisle carrying her own handmade bouquet of brooches. The bouquet was symbolic of Tyler’s late mother and sister, and many other special women in her life.
After the ceremony, guests were invited to continue the celebration at the reception.
Urban Cowboy provided the catering, and Naked Wedding Cake by Kendra Cook baked up a delicious Coconut-and-raspberry tiered wedding cake for all to enjoy. The groom opted to skip a traditional groom’s cake and had Shipley’s Donuts for all to enjoy. Guests danced the evening away to the band London Calling and were able to get their Halloween fill with a Trick or Treat Candy Bar.
After the wedding, the newlywed Snodgrasses honeymooned in Belize for a week. Three nights were spent in San Ignacio near the Guatemalan border and four nights in San Pedro on the southern part of the island of Ambergris Caye. The two (and their Yellow Lab, Otis) live in Austin, Texas, where Tyler works at Ultimate Trading International in Jewelry and Product Development and Chris works for SHI as an Account Executive in IT Sales.
