Coastal Wedding Dreams - Shaley + Josh Ordonez in Rockport, Texas
Down here in South Texas, we have something unique to offer our couples: Beach Weddings! The water, the waves, and the sand between your toes bring an organic feel to your wedding day. Josh and Shaley love the beach and had a dream about their wedding being out in Rockport on the beautiful private beach. I was immediately up for the challenge. Beach weddings are absolutely stunning, but it's very important to choose your vendor team wisely to accomplish a flawless result.
The ceremony was absolutely perfect. They picked two pastors that influenced their relationship through the years together to perform the ceremony. The "A" frame arch beautifully encapsulated them drawing everyone's eye to Shaley and Josh.
The pop of dusty blue with bridesmaid dresses, groom's jacket, and groomsmen bowties gave a perfect complement to the blue ocean. And the suspenders were absolutely adorable and practical in this Texas heat!
My absolute favorite part of the day was their first touch! Shaley and Josh decided that they did not want to see each other before the ceremony, but still wanted that intimate time together before all the craziness of wedding day. A first touch is the perfect solution for this, and it was SO SWEET! They were able to talk, pray, exchange gifts/letters, and just spend a few precious moments in each other's company. Definitely a really good substitute for a first look if you don't want to physically see your fiancé.
It was a perfect day for Mr. and Mrs. Ordonez! Check out the vendor team and more below:
