Yvonne & Lester Levine
How did you meet? We met in 2003 while working for the same company but did not become friends until 2010 after reconnecting at a mutual friends party. We started dating in 2012.
Tell us about the proposal: Lester proposed on Christmas Eve morning 2016 in front of our Christmas tree. I knew he was going to propose but I didn’t know he’d prepared such beautiful words to describe our relationship for the proposal.
What inspired the design or theme of your wedding day? Elegance...we wanted a very classy and elegant event that was very “us”. Black and gold decor with red florals and a very dramatic red draping behind our head table.
Why did you choose the venue and vendors you did? I chose Granberry Hills because of their coordinator Natalie Bustos, who made me feel like family from my very first visit to the venue. We also met the rest of our vendors based on their relationship with Granberry Hills.
What were some of the most unique elements of your wedding? The gorgeous red draping behind the head table and the beautiful red rose floral arrangements by Lucy’s Hands, some on top of candelabras by San Antonio Floral Designs
Did anything about your wedding exceed your expectations? The decor! I literally sobbed when I walked into the ballroom and saw my dream come true!
What advice do you have for couples planning a San Antonio wedding? Take your time and research as many vendors as possible. Make sure you’re comfortable with and trust them. Be kind to each other when the wedding planning gets stressful. And most importantly enjoy every moment!
