Margaret Cannata & Grant George Grotte
Hometowns: Dallas & San Antonio
How did you meet? We met at Wild West Dancehall, when Grant came up to me and asked me why I wasn't on the dance floor yet. We danced the rest of the night and went on our first date the next night.
Tell us about the proposal. We had a trip to Cancun planned in May of 2016. Grant assured everyone, including me, that he would not be proposing on this trip. However, on our second night there, he took me for a walk on the beach after dinner and got down on one knee.
What inspired the design or theme of your wedding day? We’re not very formal people so we were looking for an elegant, but laidback design for the wedding. Nicolette at Chic Concepts helped us find exactly that! I was amazed that she brought our vision to life so accurately.
Why did you choose the venue and vendors you did? The venue was exactly what I had been looking for. I knew I wanted an outdoor ceremony, and indoor reception, and once I met the staff at The Springs, I knew I didn't need to do any more venue tours. I chose other vendors based off recommendations and reviews.
What were some of the most unique elements of your wedding? Since Grant didn't have much input in the wedding, we included his favorite drink, piña coladas, as the groom's signature drink and his favorite food, tacos, in the form of a taco-themed groom’s cake from Naegelin's Bakery.
Did anything about your wedding exceed your expectations? Everything! I didn't have an exact vision for the design, theme, or flowers, but somehow Nicolette brought to life exactly what we wished for. Our photographer was so helpful the entire day, and captured everyone's emotions perfectly throughout the night.
What advice do you have for couples planning a San Antonio wedding? Make sure you include unique aspects of your relationship, even if they may not be traditional. Our guests loved the taco-themed cake and the piña colada machine, and it allowed us to share some of our favorite things with our guests.
