    Jewel Toned Whimsy at the Veranda

    How did you meet? 

    The story of how we met isn't extravagant or full of dramatic detail. We met during our first fall semester of medical school in our student lounge. We got to talking and grew fonder of one another. We dated and became official during the spring semester of our first year. Short and sweet.

    Tell us about the proposal 

    It was our fourth and last year of medical school. We had already gone through the residency match program and knew we were Temple, Texas-bound together. We were celebrating all the good news in Hawaii at Waikiki beach! It was our fourth day there, and we were up early and ready to go on a hike at the enchanting Manoa Falls. It was pouring rain up at the mountain, but that made the hike a more aunthetic Hawaiian rain forest experience. We reached the Falls themselves which were beautiful in their own right, but the view was obscured by the tourists who had the same idea we did. We took a left just before the Falls-completely off the beaten path. We hiked and hiked, up and up. There were deep puddles forming as the rain continued falling. Approximately 2 hours later, we reached the summit. The rain still came, but the sun peeked through. The clearing at the top was so peaceful and quiet, minus our huffing and puffing from the trek. We were drenched in rain, sweat, and mud. It was there in that spot and at that moment that Matthew got down on one knee, and after a brief speech, very simply asked if I would marry him. I said something along the lines of, "I can't believe it! Did you have this planned the whole time?!". Of course, I quickly said "yes!" after my initial moment of pleasant surprise! It was the most perfect moment. No photos were taken. Nobody was hiding in the bushes. It was just the two of us.

    What inspired the design or theme of your wedding day? 

    Jewel tones, succulents, and whimsical, romantic greenery on a beautiful fall day .

    Why did you choose the venue and vendors you did? 

    The Veranda is a beautifully green outdoor venue with a quaint, charming house and enclosed pavilion with garage doors. It could not be more perfect! Not to mention, it is a one-stop shop that has their own catering and beverages!

    What were some of the most unique elements of your wedding? 

    The beautiful, circular arch provided by Blume Haus that was covered in flowers, the mariachis during the cocktail hour, and the folklorico dancers that pulled us up to dance with them in front of our guests! 

    Did anything about your wedding exceed your expectations? 

    The venue and how it was decorated, as well as the gorgeous flowers and centerpieces, and the amazing turnout by family and friends.

    What advice do you have for couples planning a San Antonio wedding? 

    Consider The Veranda for your ceremony and reception venue! They work with you and any of your other vendors. It makes for amazing photos and your guests will love it and the food! They also have affiliations with aloft and Hilton for your guests with complimentary shuttles to and from the venue. Also, I would highly recommend planning your wedding in the fall time. The weather could not be more perfect in SA during that time!
