If you’ve browsed through new website at all, Alexis and Eddie might look familiar because they are EVERYWHERE. The first thing that comes to mind when I think of this sweet couple is their JOY. Joy just emanates from these two and when I was creating my new brand, I knew that celebrations with joyfully in love couples was one of the main things I wanted Jessica Chole Photography to be. My heart just longed to be a part of more wedding days like this with more couples like Alexis and Eddie… So needless to say, they are near and dear to my heart; I admire and treasure their joy. I know it won’t take long for you to feel that too.
I will never forget meeting them at Starbucks for our consultation that first started with talking about wedding plans but quickly turned into a couple hour conversation; I felt an instant connection with Alexis and Eddie, almost like we’d been long time friends, and left our meeting with the hugest smile on my face. So you can imagine my excitement when they booked Jessica Chole Photography for their wedding!
This winter wedding was an impeccably styled and glamorous occasion with colors of navy, white, blush and accents of gold. The bridesmaids wore rose gold sequin floor-length gowns and ivory faux-fur wraps for an elegant winter glam look. The groomsmen wore custom blue tuxedos by Tuxedo Jones and velvet shoes. Wait until you see Eddie’s custom blue VELVET tux! And Alexis’s TWO wedding gowns, which I’ll talk more about below.
Fressia Designs worked their magic with the florals, which featured white and blush roses, white hydrangeas, and lots of greenery.
I hope you enjoy Alexis and Eddie’s elegant and joyful wedding day!

Lost Mission Wedding | Alexis + Eddie | San Antonio Wedding Photographers
Prior to the wedding, Alexis told me how special their rings are- custom made BY HER FATHER for each of them…How special huh!
As a surprise, Alexis’s father bought her a second gown- her “party dress”!- to wear for the reception. And her mother added her own special touch by sewing Swarovski crystals to the gown by hand for some extra sparkle
Alexis and her bridesmaids- winter elegance at it’s finest!
The groomsmen were equally stylish in custom tuxedos, Eddie wearing a custom blue velvet tux and black bowtie.
First Looks between my couples are quickly becoming one of my favorite parts of a wedding day
Oh and did I mention that Eddie was a professional baseball player! A quick tribute pose to Eddie’s career
Alexis and Eddie’s goldendoodles, Snickers and Bo, patiently awaiting their photos
It was fun, a couple months after the wedding, David’s Bridal featured Alexis and Eddie’s bride and groom portraits. Not long after that, Eddie sent me an IG message showing the photo above used on the full wrap of the company vans for Tuxedo Jones!
Before heading to the reception Alexis wanted a couple bridals in front of those chapel doors…
…and Eddie just wanted to take in the view of his gorgeous wife. Can you see why I love these two so much!
Starting with the gorgeous soaring ceilings of the Lost Mission reception space, then adding the white drapery and chandeliers on top of that- this room was STUNNING. And Alexis and her family had so many extra details they added to each place setting to create a truly spectacular space for the reception.
Eddie’s baseball career was incorporated into some fun reception details
A cocktail hour kicked off the celebration with mariachis, flamenco dancers, signature drinks, gourmet appetizers, and a jumpy house for the kids!

With a second entrance and a twirl to show off the second gown, Alexis and Eddie’s party began!
