Tell us about the proposal
What inspired the design or theme of your wedding day?
Why did you choose the venue and vendors you did?
I chose the Hilton because we wanted a location on the Riverwalk for our out of town guests that was convenient and fun. The wedding was held on the 5th Floor Garden Terrace and the reception was in the Stetson Room. It had a vintage feel and was a warm, cozy environment.
What were some of the most unique elements of your wedding?
We had the Color Guard with swords that we walked through at the processional.
Did anything about your wedding exceed your expectations?
There was such a spirit of love and joy at our event. We had guests from nine states join us. We had 90 total friends and family and it was a huge celebration with a lot of laughs and fun. My brother walked me down the aisle and was my Best Person. His speech was impeccable!
What advice do you have for couples planning a San Antonio wedding?
We decided to stay in town to be with our friends and family since many traveled so far to come to our wedding. We had such a fun weekend playing tourist with our friends. The key to a successful event is not stressing. Communicate well with your Event Planner and follow up on projects to make sure things are moving forward. Designate a friend to take care of day of tasks. And give that person permission to "handle it." I instructed my friend Leslie to "not tell me if anything went wrong." It wouldn't matter in the moment anyway and it will upset you. Our day was beautiful and magical. The best day of our lives and we've heard rave reviews from attendees of having "the most fun wedding that they've ever attended."
