Veronica Helwig & Jeremy Burns
Hometowns: San Antonio
How did you meet? We met at a Texas State homecoming weekend in October 2012 at The Veranda Roof Top Patio in San Marcos.
Tell us about the proposal. Jeremy proposed November 6, 2015, at The Veranda Roof Top Patio, the same place we met. It was also Texas State's homecoming weekend.
What inspired the design or theme of your wedding day? I love the fall season and love all the colors it has to offer. I knew I wanted my main color to be wine with a romantic hint of blush pink and champagne.
Why did you choose the venue and vendors you did? I chose The Club at Sonterra because it has beautiful architecture and scenery, plus I feel they offered a lot with their wedding packages and were very accommodating to make our day special. All the other vendors I feel gave great quality service at reasonable pricing.
What were some unique elements from your wedding? We had a Texas State ice sculpture and our first dance was to "Our Day Will Come" by Ruby & The Romantics. It was my father's favorite song—he passed away in 1998.
Did anything about your wedding exceed your expectations? I was very impressed with all the decor and lighting. It came together better than I expected and I was very pleased with how everything turned out.
What advice do you have for couples planning a San Antonio wedding? Start as early as possible to make sure all of your preferred vendors are available for your special day. Also, having lighting really makes a big difference to create a romantic and warming atmosphere.
