John Sibal was immediately attracted to the new intern at the Texas manufacturing plant where they both interned in 2018. And writing in her journal after her first day, Natalie Bro noted that she “could marry a man like John.” A month later, he took a chance and asked her out to a country music concert. Even though it wasn’t her favorite kind of music, she said yes. Five years later, the couple said “yes” once again in an elegant ceremony at Natalie’s family church. The bride wore an off-the-shoulder dress that she and Miss Ruby customized by modifying the neckline, adding accent buttons down the back and—of course—adding pockets! Natalie’s breathtaking white florals included roses, gardenias and greenery, and the wedding party’s palette of dusty blue satin for the bridesmaids and classic black tie for the groomsmen perfectly complemented the blue, white and gold of the reception design. Personal touches abounded during the day, with Natalie using a detail from her mother’s wedding gown as an attachment to her veil and donning a fringed denim jacket that proudly displayed “Sibal” on the back. After a sit-down dinner with a host of toasts and jokes, dancing—and a little bit of karaoke—began. Looking back on the day, Natalie says the best part was “having all our people in one place. We are big quality-time people, and seeing everyone there to celebrate the incredible love we share was amazing.”
