Summer weddings bring lovely memories
By Mary Rogers

Summer is the season of weddings, and there are a few that were so beautifully done that people are still talking about every lovely detail -- and then there was that unusual renewal of vows in Vegas, but more on that later.



When Nicole Hartsel married Leonard Firestone at Fort Worth's All Saints Episcopal Church, guests said every detail could have been a movie scene. Red trolley cars transported the wedding party from the hotel to the sanctuary. When the ceremony was over, a white horse-drawn carriage carried the bride and groom through the leafy twilight to River Crest Country Club, where guests waited by the pool.



Dinner was served inside, and every dinner napkin was tied with a satin ribbon imprinted with a message from the bride or groom in their own handwriting. Half said "With All that I am . . . Nicole," and the others read "To Love and to Cherish . . . Leonard."



"The attention to every detail was amazing," said Judy Shannon, who created the bride's wedding gown. Nicole, a Paschal graduate who went on to earn a Harvard MBA, wanted to wear her late mother's wedding dress, but the style needed updating. Judy snipped off the lace, bleached it and incorporated it into a new silk satin gown.



The most eligible bachelor in the crowd was Leonard's cousin, Andrew Firestone, whom everyone recognized from his reality TV role as "the bachelor."



Nicole is the daughter of Gerald Hartsel and the late Anne Marie Hartsel of Fort Worth. Leonard is the son of Laurie Firestone and Kimball Firestone.



Nicole and Leonard live in Fort Worth, where he is a media consultant for a cable network specializing in Spanish-language children's programming. She handles private equity investments.
