It was a clear, blue sky day on October 27, 2018 for the wedding of Erika Cavazos and Ezequiel Reyna III, who married in the late morning hours at St. Pius X Catholic Church in Weslaco, Texas. Erika was a stunningly gorgeous bride who resembled an Old Hollywood actress with side-swept curls and a long-sleeved lace Galia Lahav gown, while Zeke was a handsome groom in his sleek tuxedo and a charming feathered bowtie. The bride and groom were pronounced husband and wife before God and their family. Shortly after ceremony, the bride and groom were whisked away in a vintage car to Bar-B-Cutie Smokehouse restaurant in Weslaco; where the wedding party joined them.
After lunch, the newlyweds spent quality time together on the patio at the groom’s parents’ home. Zeke always dreamed of having his wedding in his parents’ backyard, so the 11-acre property was transformed into a sophisticated tented reception à la “Father of the Bride”. A classic white wedding was created with crisp linens, delicate gold details, lush flowers and greenery. Guests began arriving for the cocktail hour which included a beautiful dove release. A string quartet filled the air with melodic notes while signature drinks of Margarita Reyna and Mr. Wonderful were served and enjoyed by all. After a picture perfect moment with their fur baby, Bentley, the bride and groom joined their guests for a lovely dinner of steak and chicken before taking to the dance floor to sway in each other’s arms to Alison Krauss’ “When You Say Nothing At All”. Erika and her father shared a special dance to “I Loved Her First” by Heartland. Thereafter, Zeke led his mother in a dance to Louis Armstrong’s “What a Wonderful World”.
Erika and Zeke enthusiastically cut into their five-tiered vanilla almond confection and the red velvet groom’s cake, styled into a putting green and golf bag before the live band enticed guests onto the dance floor. Guests were entertained throughout the night with music, a cigar bar, a quaint swing and a photo booth. Late night tornaboda of menudo, handmade tacos, a cute coffee bar and mariachis precluded the finale. A sparkler sendoff ended the vibrant celebration and guests took home memories in “Better Together” wine glasses and handmade soaps from Dripping Springs, Texas. Mr. & Mrs. Reyna could not have asked for a more perfect evening to celebrate the beginning of their newlywed life together.
