Here in San Antonio, we have been working through an unusually cold winter that has us longing for Spring weddings equipped with warmer weather and floral design! Looking back on last year, we still think about how much we enjoyed wedding planning a garden inspired Jewish wedding that brought family and friends from all over the world to San Antonio, Texas. Our Bride and Groom lived on the opposite sides of the country from one another and selected us to plan their destination wedding right here in San Antonio! Nearly all of their 300 guests were from out of town!
We spent countless hours perfecting every single detail of this large, outdoor wedding. As with all of our out of town clients, we had several “power meetings” with them when they were able to come to San Antonio to meet. Then just three days before the wedding, San Antonio was hit with heavy rain, completely waterlogging the original outdoor venue (San Antonio Botanical Gardens) and it was not going to be dry in time for the wedding! We were faced with having to call each the bride and the groom, who were both getting on airplanes from their different cities to travel here for their wedding, to tell them that the wedding would not be feasible at the Botanical Gardens. We explained the situation but informed the good news was that we had a new venue that just happened to be available and let them know we felt confident we could make the switch. They both said they trusted us and let us work our magic. Our team worked to rearrange the entire wedding accordingly. It was truly one of those moments where having a wedding planner helped the couple remain stress-free and enjoy their special day! As we say, we felt the bumps for our client so they could continue to enjoy their wedding. In the end, we all agreed that the wedding turned out to be perfect and the new venue, the Mc Nay Art Museum, and felt like it was meant to be! Photos by: Jeremy Minnerick
