Wedding bells soon will ring for Ashley Schwab and Jacob Simon, both of Galveston, and a fiesta-themed shower was the order of the day to celebrate the upcoming nuptials. Hosted at the home of Genette and Keith Bassett, guests were greeted by festive floral decorations and bright woven fans, which came in handy on a warm September evening.

A beautiful array of delicious food was provided by Taquilo’s, and guests dined as they visited with friends and family of the bride and groom. Floral frocks were prevalent, but the bride-to-be stunned in a white eyelet halter dress, even playfully topping it with a sombrero as the party progressed. The evening was graciously hosted by Gracie Bassett, Genette Bassett, Maria Wheeler, Lisa Hardee and Jill Presnal, and is sure to be remembered fondly always.
