Valerie Brown and Wesley Trevino
Tell us about the proposal. Wes proposed at Enchanted Rock in Fredericksburg, TX. After a day of wine tasting, he had planned a surprise trip to my hometown in Pennsylvania where my mom arranged for all of my family and friends to welcome us home with an engagement party! It was perfect.
What inspired the design or theme of your wedding day? While I had no central theme for the wedding, most of the guests would be coming from around the country and had never been to San Antonio. I wanted our wedding to be a chance for both sides of our family to come together and have fun in our city.
Why did you choose the venue and vendors you did? The Witte Museum provided everything we were looking for—a casual River Walk ceremony, outdoor spaces with gorgeous Texas charm, and a reception area to dance the night away—all located in central San Antonio. We chose Tex Mex for dinner and a signature Tequila cocktail.
What were some of the most unique elements of your wedding? Wes and I wrote our ceremony ourselves and included our families in it as much as possible. My uncle performed the ceremony and became ordained just for the occasion! We included vows between our parents as well to symbolize the joining of our two families.
Did anything about your wedding exceed your expectations? Our whole wedding day was perfect. Our vendors were so helpful and talented that we were able to focus on each other, enjoy the day with family, and begin our marriage with a beautiful day.
What advice do you have for couples planning a San Antonio wedding? Because we did not have a theme and just picked what we liked from each vendor, we were stunned at how beautifully it all came together. We advise other couples to enjoy the process and not stress over the little things. You get to marry the love of your life!
