Hillary Lynn Wells Heard and Rex Sherman Cody were married June 12. Father Patrick Donohoe of Beeville officiated the double-ring ceremony at Our Lady of Grace Catholic Church in San Antonio.

The bride, given in marriage by her father, Paul Heard, wore a strapless, cream, Alençon lace Tara Keely gown designed by Francesca Pritera. The neckline was made of scalloped lace, and the bodice fitted to the knees and flared out into a chapel train. Her fingertip veil was a floral pattern, and the headpiece was a custom comb of freshwater pearls and Swarovski crystals. She wore her late grandmother’s pearl-shaped diamond pendant and sapphire and diamond earrings and carried a hand-tied bouquet of white peonies and garden roses, wrapped in ivory and pearls. 

The maid of honor was Mallory Heard of San Antonio. She wore a Wtoo stone-color, knee-length chiffon gown with a cream-colored sash. The bridesmaids were Collyn Cody of Austin, Lucy Barrera of Corpus Christi, Kacey Bowman of Victoria and Tiffany Schendel of Beeville. They also wore Wtoo stone-colored, knee-length gowns with empire bodices of chiffon. All attendants carried bouquets of yellow cymbidium orchids with burgundy centers and yellow garden roses. 

The flower girl, Lena Cody, wore a cream-colored gown with a sash tied into a large bow and carried a kissing ball made of cream-colored roses and hanging from a ribbon. 

The best man was Ashley Hightower of Mt. Pleasant and groomsmen were Wes McBrayeer of Houston; Kere Fite of Mt. Pleasant; Erik Fite of Birmingham, Ala.; and Andy Cody of Hughes Springs.   

The vintage-theme reception was held at the Main Street Ballroom in San Antonio. At the cocktail hour, guests enjoyed appetizers, dancing and the bride and groom’s signature drink, a Mexican martini. Tall bar tables throughout the room were adorned with floor-length, stone-colored tablecloths with a flower-filled birdcage as the centerpiece. During the dinner hour, 25 round tables were set with stone-colored napkins, and chairs were covered in white with yellow sashes. Centerpieces were of three different designs.

A Mexican theme rehearsal dinner, hosted by the parents of the groom, was held June 11 in the Agave Room of the Iron Cactus Bar & Grill on San Antonio’s Riverwalk. Guests enjoyed appetizers and a Mexican food buffet, music by a mariachi band, speeches, stories and a slide show of the bride and groom. The evening concluded with a boat ride on the river.

The bride’s cake was a four-tiered, round butter cake with almond van mousse filling and butter cream icing and decorated with edible satin pearls. The groom’s cake was an Italian cream with fudge filling and cream cheese icing. It was decorated with the Texas A&M logo and surrounded by 12 red velvet cupcakes with vanilla icing and decorated with the groom’s fraternity symbol.   

The bride is the daughter of Paul and Debbi Heard of Beeville. She graduated from A.C. Jones High School and Texas A&M University in College Station in 2008 with a degree in early childhood education. She is currently employed as a first-grade teacher at Thornton Elementary School in San Antonio.  

The groom is the son of Deborah Cody of Mt. Pleasant and Don and Melody Cody of Tyler. He graduated from Mount Pleasant High School in 2001 and Texas A&M University in College Station in 2006, where he earned a degree in construction science. He is currently employed with SpawGlass Contractors in San Antonio. 

After returning from their honeymoon in Antigua, the couple now make their home in San Antonio.
