Hometowns: San Antonio, TX & Del Rio, TX
How did you meet? We met through an acquaintance at Happy Hour at Kona Grill.
Tell us about the proposal. We were going to move in together and although we had discussed marriage in the past, it wasn't until we moved in that we decided that we were going to do it. The proposal happened at The Pearl.
What inspired the design or theme of your wedding day? I LOVE rose gold! My Ring is rose gold so I knew that that would be the main color with grey pewter to accent. I wanted a very romantic event with candles and lots of metallics. All of our vendors did an amazing job setting the atmosphere and mood!
Why did you choose the venue and vendors you did? The all-inclusive package from NOAH's was a no-brainer. The other vendors I picked were businesses that I have worked with or I’d previously seen their work so the service was amazing, and made the planning of my wedding so easy!
What were some of the most unique elements of your wedding? I loved that we used both round and rectangle tables and we made sure to mix all of our guests when planning our place settings. But for sure, the rose gold was the most unique. I think that that color is just starting to make an appearance in weddings. Also, our confetti sendoff was perfect!
Did anything about your wedding exceed your expectations? We knew everything would be gorgeous but just to see it all come together the day of—and all the love from our family and friends—hands down, I know every bride says it, but my wedding was perfect!
What advice do you have for couples planning a San Antonio wedding? I know it's so hard to believe, but enjoy this time—don’t stress. Take lots of pictures as a couple along the way during the planning stages (i.e. tasting cake, looking at flowers, layouts, etc.). And hire a wedding planner, if you can afford one—Nancy was my saving grace!
