Marla Beam & Drake Reynolds
How did you meet? We met in college at Texas State University.
Tell us about the proposal: Drake planned a trip to Vail, Colorado. We went walking at the Betty Ford Botanical Gardens in the snow and he asked a lady to take our picture. He got down on one knee and the lady got pictures and videos of the proposal.
What inspired the theme of your wedding day? Classic Southern wedding! I absolutely loved the color palette of claret, gold and greenery. Simple, but classic. It was a dream!
Why did you choose the venue and vendors you did? We choose Kendall Plantation for the beautiful scenery, quiet location and beautiful space with room for 250 people.
What were some of the most unique elements of your wedding? The most unique elements of our wedding was the floral colors and greenery in the bouquet and center pieces. Also, the bridesmaid dresses were a beautiful sequin claret color that perfectly matched the theme of our wedding.
Did anything about your wedding exceed your expectations? The outstanding decor! I was in awe. It was everything and more than I dreamed of. I am so blessed to have such an incredible wedding coordinator to help live out our dream.
What advice do you have for couples planning a San Antonio wedding? Stay open-minded. Our wedding coordinator helped us branch out of the similarities of wedding pictures and themes we had seen used over and over again. With her help, we had a wedding that was unique and incorporated the ideas of both bride and groom.
