Morgan Labanna and Ryan Dibble
How did you meet? Freshman year of college, Ryan had history class with my roommate. He and a friend came over to our apartment to study for a big test. We instantly hit it off and I guess you could say the rest is history!
Tell us about the proposal: Every year, our families celebrate the 4th of July together at the lake. As I pulled up to the lake house, all our family/friends were lining the driveway with sparklers. At the top was Ryan waiting on 1 knee, as I said YES fireworks went off & "our song" played.
What inspired the design or theme of your wedding day? Holiday magic! We wanted our wedding to capture the romantic and wondrous feeling of the holiday season. We decided to go with the classic red roses and a ton of candle lighting to give it that romantic feel!
Why did you choose the venue and vendors you did? We cannot say enough good things about each and every one of our vendors! They went above and beyond to make our big day more magical than we could have ever imagined. They were all so kind and truly cared about making the day perfect for us!
The morning of the wedding, the bottom of cake crumbled and the entire thing fell apart. Luckily, H-E-B was super kind and made us a cake within a few hours. My wonderful florist, Oakleaf Florist, then decorated it for us! It came together beautifully, but for awhile we were worried there would be no cake! They were so sweet to help us out!
What were some of the most unique elements of your wedding? It snowed on our grand exit! It was the perfect ending to our fairytale Christmas wedding. We also had a 10 foot Christmas tree that we decorated with wedding favor ornaments. The guest really enjoyed the favors and it was a popular photo spot throughout the night!
Did anything about your wedding exceed your expectations? The ceremony was so beautiful and the chapel was breathtaking! Our florist added extra arrangements to the chapel to match the reception arrangements. The team at The Chandelier of Gruene even feed the deer just prior to the ceremony so they would be there as guests arrived!
What advice do you have for couples planning a San Antonio wedding? There are so many amazing venues and vendors to choose from in the San Antonio area. If we could give one piece of advice it would be to trust your instincts! With each of our vendors we had a gut feeling that they were the right choice for us!
