Krystle Jimenez & Antonio Camargo
Hometowns: San Antonio
How did you meet? We met on Match.com, not knowing we already had multiple mutual friends.
Tell us about the proposal. We went to New Orleans to go see the groom's favorite football team, the New Orleans Saints. The night before the game, which was on Halloween, we went exploring and he proposed in front of the St. Louis Cathedral.
What inspired the design or theme of your wedding day? We combined the colors of both of our favorite football teams—the bride is a Cowboys fan (navy) and the groom is a Saints fan (gold), and we wanted a downtown wedding. We love to travel and the place where we fell in love was in New York City.
Why did you choose the venue and vendors you did? We chose La Orilla Del Rio Ballroom because it made us feel like a part of New York City was there with us. Being in the middle of downtown gave us the New York feel.
What were some unique elements of your wedding? One of them was having my 95-year-old grandpa, who we care for, as our Flowerpa. Another was our guest map—instead of a guestbook, we had everyone sign a huge canvas map. And our Snapchat filter and Whataburger numbers at the tables.
Did anything about your wedding exceed your expectations? The dancing and all of the love from our family and friends. Also, our photographer Limelight San Antonio went above and beyond. It was like our dream came to life.
What advice do you have for couples planning a San Antonio wedding? Spend the money on what you think is important for your wedding—for us, it was the photography. We wanted the memories we could have and share with our children someday.
