The Russell Wedding almost didn’t happen! NRS Mens/Kids Footwear Buyer & Hat Buyer, Katy Russell, tells their sweet love story.
“It was all in Gods timing is the one thing I can say about mine and Cody’s relationship. Cody and I met at a roping and were friends for a good while until he finally convinced me to let him take me on a date and the rest became history. This was over the course of several years.
“We got engaged when we were getting ready to leave for a rodeo in Bowie. Shortly after we got engaged we got married at the most beautiful venue in West Monroe, Louisiana called Southern Stables. Cody’s cousin, Mandy Bond, bought the venue last summer and it actually was an old race horse barn when they bought it. It’s truly is a dreamy place. We had talked very seriously about not having a wedding. We are both so busy with work and rodeo that it made it hard to find a date that would fit for us and our friends to do this but in God’s timing and a little convincing from friends it all came together.
“I actually bought a wedding dress before we decided to have a wedding because my friend convinced me I needed to at least have the experience of trying on wedding dresses and I fell in love with one. Cody and I couldn’t think of a better place that fit in with our rodeo and western lifestyle than this beautiful barn that sat on the back of beautiful green pastures. We were showered with love from our closest friends and family and had a true fairy tale of a wedding.” –Katy Russell
