Bonnie Brannon Mueller Weds Baltazar Murillo III

Bonnie Brannon Mueller and Baltazar “Bert” Murillo III were united in marriage on Saturday, August 19, 2006, at 11:00 in the morning at Saint Anne Catholic Church on Westheimer in Houston. The wedding was presided over by the groom’s family member, Bishop Placido Rodriguez, The Bishop of Lubbock. Scripture readings were given by Natalia Nicholls. The soloist was Kimberly Mendoza who began singing Ave Maria as the mothers entered. The organist was Jim Ross. The couple used the traditional symbols of the arras, the lazo, and the lighting of the unity candle after exchanging vows.

The Bride is the daughter of Hugh and Javonne Gilmore, Michael Mueller, and Kaye Reynolds. The groom is the son of Bert and Marge Murillo of Tucson, Arizona. The Bride was escorted by her father, Michael Mueller, and later toasted by her step-father, Hugh Gilmore. She wore an ivory strapless gown that was corseted in the back with a lace panel insert running down the satin train. The couple was surrounded by four generations of family and many friends. The wedding began just after a downpour which seems to be widely recognized as good luck.

The Maid of Honor was Jessica Gilmore, sister of the Bride. Bridesmaids included Sofia Garcia of Chicago, MariaElena Murillo of Austin, and Kelley Nedd, formerly of Sugar Land. They wore coral dresses, each of their own chosen style, and carried coral and bronze roses mixed with flowers of purple, the Bride’s favorite color. There were two flower girls dressed in ivory—Carey Mueller, the Bride’s niece, and Isabella Nicholls, the groom’s niece. Jenny Mueller escorted the flower girls. The flowers were a gift of the bride’s grandmother, Janelle Sloane of Nacogdoches, Texas.

The Best Man was Jason Nicholls, brother-in-law of the groom. Other groomsmen included the Bride’s brother, Philip Mueller, formerly of Sugar Land, David Eick, of Dallas, and Tim McHale of Houston. Serving as ushers were Matt Gilmore and David Karpf, both formerly of Sugar Land.

The reception was held at the Houston Downtown Aquarium and the cakes were made by Who Made the Cake. Bonnie surprised Bert, the baseball lover, with a 3-D catcher’s mitt for a groom’s cake surrounded by longhorn-enhanced chocolate-covered strawberries. It was the talk of the reception along with the live fish centerpieces adorning each table. These were topped off with star-gazer lilies. Mariachi Internacional de Houston performed as a gift from “Grandpa” Baltazar Murillo, Sr. of Chicago. Then the DJ began as the couple danced.

The groom’s family hosted a delicious Italian dinner on Friday, following the rehearsal, at Maggiano’s on Post Oak. They also hosted an after-party for the newlyweds.

Bonnie and Bert met in physics class at The University of Texas at Austin, and they are now honeymooning in Italy. They live in Houston, Texas.
