Lindsey Springer & Sturgis Sobin
Hometowns: McLean, VA & Great Falls, VA
How did you meet? Technically we met in elementary school and always had friends in common growing up, but we didn't reconnect until after college. I threw a birthday party for a mutual friend while living in Nashville, and Sturgis flew down and swept me off my feet that weekend.
Tell us about the proposal. When we moved to Houston, we fell in love with the Hill Country. Sturgis took me to The Travaasa in Austin to hike and relax. Unfortunately, there was a hurricane that weekend, which cancelled many of his plans, but he popped the question in our room before an unbelievable dinner!
What inspired the design or theme of your wedding day? Our love of the Hill Country-- 100%. The golds and reds of the sunsets and the beige and dusty rose colors among the wildflowers you see when hiking and exploring San Antonio. We're a very outdoorsy couple, and knew we wanted to be outside and under the Texas stars.
Why did you choose the venue and vendors you did? Since my family now lives scattered throughout the Southeast-- and his, along the East Coast-- we knew it had to be a destination wedding. We have fond memories traveling to San Antonio and knew we wanted to show the city and its locals off… especially the views at La Cantera!
What were some of the most unique elements of your wedding? Our ability to get loved ones from all over-- Tennessee, D.C., Boston, Connecticut, California, Florida, Arizona, and more, and show them a little bit of Texas. Many had never been to San Antonio (or Texas!), and we loved getting to show them why we adore it so much.
Did anything about your wedding exceed your expectations? My family is made up of die-hard University of Tennessee football fans, and the Vols were playing Georgia during our ceremony. The Vols ended up throwing a Hail Mary pass to win the game right as we said our vows-- a cherry on top to the perfect day.
What advice do you have for couples planning a San Antonio wedding? San Antonio will forever be a special place to us. No matter what venue or what vendors you choose, it will be perfect. Your guests will fall in love with the city, its character, the people, and their passion. You can't go wrong!
