Yviand Serbones & Mauricio Hernandez
Hometowns: San Antonio
How did you meet? We met through mutual friends and got close after a Facebook suggestion pushed me to send a request to Mauricio. Our first date was almost ruined after the restaurant we agreed to meet at was closed, but Mauricio's quick thinking saved the day.
Tell us about the proposal. Mauricio had planned to do an intimate proposal so he bought roses and planned to do it at home but I took him by surprise so he had to propose as soon as he walked in the door!
What inspired the design or theme of your wedding day? We both love the beauty and landscape of the Hill Country and its vineyards.
Why did you choose the venue and vendors you did? Family was coming from out of state, so we wanted to stay close to downtown San Antonio but keep our Hill Country theme. We honored San Antonio and downtown by getting married at La Villita and picked ZaZa Gardens to bring the Hill Country to our guests.
What were some unique elements of your wedding? We wanted to bring personal touches to our wedding and our guests. We personalized our centerpieces and used a personalized guest book with our theme. We also honored our Mexican and Puerto Rican backgrounds with our meal and decor, which our guests enjoyed.
Did anything about your wedding exceed your expectations? Our out-of-town guests really enjoyed getting to know San Antonio and had so much fun with us. Having a wedding planner helped relieve us from the stress of the wedding details and allowed us to enjoy every moment of our special day with our loved ones.
What advice do you have for couples planning a San Antonio wedding? San Antonio is such a beautiful place with rich culture and history. Take advantage of this and incorporate the city into your wedding for your guests to enjoy and get a taste of this wonderful place!
