How did you meet?
Neither one of us are fond of the way we met, but we met online. My friend (and bridesmaid) Liz convinced me to go on Match.com. Joby was out of my age range, but we had a fun sports rivalry between us. He went to Texas A&M and I grew up a huge UT fan, so I though, "This might be fun." He was my first and only date from Match.com. We hit if off and have been together ever since.
Why did you choose the venue and vendors you did?
The church where we got married was the church I grew up attending my whole life. There was no question when it came to the ceremony. When it came to the reception, we wanted something that was elegant, historic, and embodied San Antonio, and The Pearl Stable did it all. It was FANTASTIC!
What were some of the most unique elements of your wedding?
The photography. My sister, Kenzie Perkins Valladolid, who is a photographer herself, did some serious research on San Antonio wedding photographers. She ended up suggesting Adam Swift because he was so talented at nighttime and indoor photography. I went with her suggestion and could not be more grateful! I don't think I could have asked for a more talented (and kind) photographer. He was just the best!
Did anything about your wedding exceed your expectations?
Everything...EVERYTHING! The catering was beyond amazing and they even put together baskets of food, wine, and cake to take with us to the hotel room after the reception. That meant the WORLD to me and I could not have appreciated it more. They also had an attendant there to make sure the two of as always had a fresh drink, food, or anything else we needed. I've already spoken so highly of the photographer, but I cannot say enough nice things about him. Adam Swift has been nothing short of AMAZING! Not only was he incredibly kind, patient, and professional, but the photos he delivered have been phenomenal! I'm so proud to have him our photographer. Also, I think everyone's favorite part of the wedding was the cake. The cake was DELICIOUS!!! People could not stop talking about how delicious the cake was.
