Erin Johnson & Andrew Gutierrez
Hometowns: San Antonio, TX
How did you meet? We matched on two online dating apps— once through Tinder, and again on E-harmony. That’s when we decided to meet in person.
Tell us about the proposal. Andrew gathered all of our family and best friends at his parents’ house, where everyone surprised me by singing to our song, "Swept Away" by the Avett Brothers. People came from Washington, Colorado, California, and all throughout Texas to show their support.
What inspired the design or theme of your wedding day? We wanted to honor our San Antonio heritage by making our wedding an ideal fiesta!
Why did you choose the venue and vendors you did? Erin is a decedent of the Tobin family of San Antonio, and was happy to get married in a venue that is significant to her family. Our photographers and wedding planner were recommended by family friends.
What were some of the most unique elements of your wedding? We had an incredible live band, personalized shoes for the both of us and our wedding party, a handmade cross which was displayed at the ceremony, song sung acapella by Andrew and his groomsmen, our trap door entrance on stage to the reception holding lightsabers, and personalized guitar picks and CD wedding favors.
Did anything about your wedding exceed your expectations? The whole day was incredible, and the amount of love and support we had from family and friends blew us away!
What advice do you have for couples planning a San Antonio wedding? Make sure the wedding planning process stays fun, and make sure the day is all about you as a couple and true love you share.
