Courtney Sobek and Cole Tachdjian were just two high-school sweethearts from California when a broken-down bus landed them stuck in Texas for three weeks. “We were on a road trip to see George Strait,” Courtney says. “We rented a car and drove across Texas and fell in love.” The couple, who rescue and rehabilitate horses, decided to split their business between the two states.

So following a birthday-weekend engagement in Laguna Beach, it just made sense to marry on their property in Palmer. “Cole is more Texan than a lot of people,” Courtney laughs. After a yearlong postponement due to the pandemic, the pair said “I do” amid the springtime Texas bluebonnets. 

Party On

Late in the evening, the bride donned a bedazzled white “Forever & Ever” jacket from Rock Paper Scissors Denim Jackets.

“We tricked everyone into thinking it was over, and then revealed a dueling piano bar,” says Courtney, who’s pictured taking a turn on the suspended saddle used by the aerialist entertainer.
