Alex & Freddie | A Backyard Wedding in Double Oak, Texas
Alex and Freddie have been together for 12 years! They survived middle school, high school, and college TOGETHER. That kind of love is so rare and needs to praised around the world for the accomplishment. Little did they know they would also survive planning a wedding during a pandemic. COVID-19 hit the wedding industry hard, but I believe it hit our brides harder. Alex like most brides struggled with changing plans. Move the date? Move the venue? Cancel services or items they didn't need? SO many unknowns! Luckily, she and Freddie stuck with their original date and kept the most of their services. Flowers, hair, make-up, bridesmaids, and groomsmen, they even kept the wedding traditions of first dances, cake cutting, bouquet, and garter toss. It was a REAL WEDDING with a small twist. They got married in their parent's backyard in Double Oak, Texas with about 40 guests of their closest friends and family. Gorgeous green trees, great sunlight, a beautiful ceremony space with a white drapery hung in the trees. They even exchanged ring pops during the ceremony because their officiant had a great scene of humor. She was Alex's middle school teacher and witnessed their love grow throughout the years. The first kiss was shared, romantic pictures taken and it was time for the first dances under the garden lights. The Father-daughter was so emotional, serval people were crying. It was all around a fantastic setting on a fantastic day! Let's hear what Alex said about it.
"I spent the last year planning our big dream wedding... and 2 weeks ago,
all of those plans were changed. As it turns out, a backyard wedding at
my parent's house was everything I could’ve dreamed of thanks to our families,
friends, and vendors. I can’t wait to get our photos back and relive the moments!" - Alex Mendoza
