Krista Mullins & Adam Harris
Hometowns: The Woodlands & Austin
How did you meet? We met at a wedding of one of my good friends and Adam’s cousin. We didn’t talk a whole lot at the wedding but we were going to go out after and I gave him my number so he could meet up with us. We started talking after that and have been together since.
Tell us about the proposal. Adam proposed on a boat on Lake Medina. We were supposed to meet his cousin’s family to go take the boat around the lake. They got “stuck at work” and so Adam and I cruised around until they could get there. He stopped the boat in front of the dock where we were going to pick them up and started taking pictures. He never takes pictures so I started getting a little suspicious. He walked over to me and hugged me and told me how much he loved me and wanted to marry me. He dropped to his knee and asked me to marry him. It was perfect and completely a surprise. His cousin jumped out of the woods and had been taking pictures the whole time.
What inspired the design or theme of your wedding day? I wanted something classy and simple. I didn’t want to look back at my pictures in 20 years and wonder what I was thinking, so I went with classic neutral colors. I wanted it to reflect our personality so sparkles seemed to be the perfect complement. We knew we wanted it to really be about the people and the moment and not get too caught up in the details, so we kept it simple.
How did you choose your venue and vendors? I fell in love with Kendall Plantation the moment we drove around the corner and saw it. Adam jokes that “the place just screamed Krista.” I didn’t want anything rustic but wanted southern elegance and Kendall is exactly that. After choosing Kendall everything else fell into place. Kristin with Kendall Plantation was so helpful and I picked most of my vendors from her list.
What was the most trying part of the planning process? Trying to take care of everything on my own. Obviously Adam and our families were very helpful but none of our siblings or parents are in town so I was meeting with vendors and stuff in town by myself and then feeling like I needed more opinions all while trying to keep the budget in mind.
What were some of the most unique elements of your wedding? I think the music we chose for the ceremony was unique. We didn’t want traditional music. We both really love live music and wanted to incorporate that into our big day. We chose a traditional country song, “When I Said I Do,” for the bridal party processional and a song written by our ceremony musician Abraham Weaver for the bridal processional called “Depending on You”—it’s a beautiful song and I fell in love with it the moment I heard it. We both wanted the ceremony to be a reflection of us and the love we share. We didn’t want to stick with customs just because that’s how it’s always been done.
Did anything about your wedding exceed your expectations? EVERYTHING. It was truly a perfect night. The weather could not have been more perfect for a January day and everything went off without a hitch. Our day-of coordinator was INCREDIBLE. Audrey from Timeless Beginnings made me feel so relaxed all day because she took care of everything. And we could not have been happier with all of our vendors.
What are your favorite memories from the day? I have too many to count. I think weddings are really special in that it really is the only time that everyone you love from near or far will come together and celebrate with you. I have a lot of friends and family from out of state and it was so, so special to have them all in one place to share such an important moment.
What are your plans for the future? Right now we’re looking for some land to build our dream home on. We have plans for kids one day but we aren’t in any kind of hurry. Just enjoying being newlyweds.
What advice do you have for couples planning a San Antonio wedding? Don’t get wrapped up in having a “perfect wedding.” Enjoy the time you have to plan together with your families because it goes by very quickly. Every time I felt like I was getting overwhelmed with wedding details I would always remind myself that what’s important is that at the end of the day we’re married. Savor every moment and don’t stress the details.
