A Backyard Wedding

Ashley & Joe

Olivia Grace Bridal

Although Ashley and Joe found themselves planning a wedding during the pandemic, they remained optimistic. The couple exchanged vows at a church, Our Lady of Grace Catholic Church, in La Coste, TX. Their original reception venue was gorgeous, but Ashley says that moving it to their backyard made everything that much better.

The Proposal

Ashley and Joe knew each for a couple of years before they began dating because Joe could be shy. Shy, but not shy enough to stop him from proposing inside a jewelry store! The couple was browsing engagement rings, and Ashley expressed interest in her favorite one. Naturally, Joe got on one knee, then and there, in the middle of the jewelry store, and asked her to marry him.

The Wedding

The wedding was set for spring 2020 but became a summer wedding as the couple faced quarantine and cancellations. By the time July 18th, the couple’s new wedding date, rolled around, the couple was on, according to Ashley, plan h of their wedding plans. Still, their vendors were flexible and joyous to work with.

The bride wore a trumpet wedding gown from Olivia Grace Bridal, and the groom looked fantastic in his tuxedo from Rex Formal Wear. The guest’s spirits remained lifted throughout the day with music and lighting from Future Sounds. To further ensure guest comfort, the couple booked a portable restroom from A Royal Flush.

For the guests who couldn’t make it, Elan Imaging was able to provide impeccable photography and videography. Pairing images with a wedding video made it that much more possible for others to feel like they were there.
