AlanaBelle Cochran-Howard & Jason Harrison
How did you meet? We met while we were in college. We actually have two different stories as to how we met. Jason says that I left him on the dance floor, but I don't remember that ever happening. I remember us meeting when I was dating one of his best friends and we all hung out.
Tell us about the proposal: The whole family had been planning to go and take family pictures for Christmas. We got all dressed and headed out to downtown New Braunfels. Everyone made it obvious when they wanted Jason and me to take pictures first and they all got out their phones instead of just letting the camera do its job. Jason proposed me to in the gazebo in downtown New Braunfels.
What inspired the design or theme of your wedding day? We are both very rustic country people, so that's what inspired the theme.
Why did you choose the venue and vendors you did? I knew I wanted a barn for the reception. We looked everywhere for venues and then my wedding planner Heather found Eagle Dancer Ranch. When we went it was still under construction, nothing except the unfinished barn was standing. We had to picture everything for ourselves. After finding the venue, everything else just fell into place.
What were some of the most unique elements of your wedding? I think the most unique element of my wedding were my ceremony doors. My dad built the frame and my mom painted them. The doors weren't done until maybe the day before the wedding. They turned out great!
Did anything about your wedding exceed your expectations? Everything exceeded my expectations, everything went wonderfully!
What advice do you have for couples planning a San Antonio wedding? San Antonio and its surrounding areas have a lot to offer, so don't stop looking until you find what you want! Enjoy every bit of the planning process, because it'll be done and over with before you know it.
