    Love Grows Here

    Ashley Turnmire & Roy Dory

    Hometowns: Oak Ridge, TN & Glade Spring, VA

    How did you meet? We met when we both worked at a research laboratory in Pensacola, Florida.

    Tell us about the proposal. Roy proposed with a bottle of Moet & Chandon on a balcony at the J.W. Marriott Hill Country Resort & Spa overlooking the beautiful city.

    What inspired the design or theme of your wedding day? I really wanted something feminine, elegant, and simple with as much natural landscaping/beauty as possible. We could not have found a better fit than the Japanese Tea Gardens.

    Why did you choose the venue and vendors you did? Every vendor we chose was with the intention of supporting as many local businesses as possible. Shout outs: The recent renovations at the Japanese Tea Gardens were exceptionally beautiful. Carlos Sanchez was an awesome professional Spanish guitarist. Everything stayed on track because of DJ Timo, who had EVERYONE dancing! And Morgan Whitney made sure every important moment was captured.

    Did anything about your wedding exceed your expectations? Espie Robertson with the Japanese Tea Gardens was instrumental and did an incredible job organizing and arranging everything. I was also very surprised and happy with the quality and arrangement of flowers from H-E-B Blooms Flower Shop.

    What advice do you have for couples planning a San Antonio wedding? Support your city—there are so many local businesses here that offer help with everything you need for your wedding! I will admit dress shopping was a little difficult, but Eduardo's was awesome!
