How did you meet? We met 15 years ago at 4 a.m. on a random Sunday morning at Chacho’s on Callaghan Rd. We lived on opposite sides of the state and were in a long distance relationship for four years. Our Story
Tell us about the proposal. We never could afford a wedding until we won Fiverr’s Save the Date Contest last summer. We made our video in hopes of winning one of the places just to help put together a wedding—even if only a tiny one. I was at work on the day I received the email stating we had won. Here is the 1-minute video of me surprising her with the announcement:
What inspired the design or theme of your wedding day? We chose a "Game of Thrones" theme—not too renaissance festival-y though, just enough to embellish the Romantic qualities of the story behind the time period (even the make-believe one).
Why did you choose the venue and vendors you did? My wife did all of that research herself. She was very particular on the vendors she picked. She wanted to establish a theme without going overboard and being too gaudy and loud. Subtlety was key for us.
What were some of the most unique elements of your wedding? The cakes from Creations Cake Shop! The venue was amazing also. The fact that we were gambling with the Texas weather literally one hour before the wedding was pretty intense also.
Did anything about your wedding exceed your expectations? The entire thing exceeded both of our expectations. We waited 15 years to make it happen and we finally got the chance to share it with our children, our family and our friends while we were still on this earth.
What advice do you have for couples planning a San Antonio wedding? Have fun. Even with the contest winnings we were still stressed over the small details. My advice, let it be—it will all work itself out.
