Haute Weddings on Kens5 at the St. Anthony - San Antonio wedding planner

Who could resist filming a wedding segment at the St. Anthony?  Not me!  I love coordinating weddings at the St. Anthony, so when they asked me to participate in their wedding segment for Great Day SA, it was a no-brainer.  

If you haven't been to the St. Anthony since the renovation, you need to put it on your list of To-Do's.  It is definitely a luxury hotel, but even though it is quite regal, there is still an intimacy about it.  You feel comfortable and welcomed and...at home.

zaza gardens event facility - san antonio wedding planner

Hosting the open house at this new downtown facility was a blast.  My preferred vendors donated their services and products to dress the facility for it's San Antonio Wedding Magazine debut.  They even videotaped the room and outdoor areas to show on their Virtual Tour link.  The facility is close to downtown, lots of free parking, high ceilings, limestone walls and wooden beams.  Lots of space to roam and dance while still keeping it warm and intimate.  Accommodates @ 200 with a dance floor.  Call Lisa @ Haute Weddings 210-215-5820 for more information.

I also want to give a big shout-out and thank you to Teresa of elan Imaging.  She always does an amazing job!  And Masquerade DJ for filling in at the last minute, and Infinity Catering, for providing their scrumptious food for my guests.

jami and michael - swanderosa (san antonio wedding planner)

About two months ago, I received a call from a production company that they were doing a feature docu-series on the Swanderosa event facility.  They needed to add a few more events to their time-line and wanted to know if I had any couples in mind or if any of my current clients would be interested in changing their date.  This scenario would normally sound pretty crazy to a wedding planner.  I don't get phone calls from brides stating they are getting married in two months, but Lord and behold, I DID have a couple in mind! My friend, Patty Lujan, with Infinity Catering, had just mentioned to me that her cousin was looking for a venue, la-la-la-la, etc..etc...and so it came about that Jami and Michael were getting married at the Swanderosa and we had two months to plan it.  This was quite a challenge because I'm used to working solely with the couple and their vendors, in planning their big day.  In this situation, I had to collaborate with the facility (who did most of the design and decor), the caterer (who had a vested interest in the project), and the production company (who had their own agenda and time-line).  Ugh!

When it was all said and done, the day was beautiful, the event was beautiful and Jami and Michael couldn't have been happier.  So, it was a win-win for all!

These were just a few quick photos I could capture.  Professional photos to come by www.mymintphotography.com

tasha & alex's engagements - shy laurel photography - pearl stable

Tasha lives in San Francisco and Alex lives in Albuquerque.  They were both down in SA over the holidays and had only a small window of time to take their engagement photos.  The day was rainy, overcast, cold...similar to the days we've been having, just not as severe.  I asked Tasha to speak to her photographer about rescheduling for the next day or earlier in the day, but the photographer said it would be okay.  Oh me, full of doubt....Shyann Harker of www.shylaurel.com pulled out all the strings and then some.  I cannot believe the shots she got.    Oh me, of little faith.

I can't wait to see the pics of the actual wedding day!

Tamara and Bubba - Lost Mission

I had the honor of being chosen to coordinate the wedding of Tamara & Bubba Strait.   Their wedding was held on a beautiful day in December at  the Lost Mission Event Facility in Anhalt.  Tamara has such a sweet and tender heart.  She's the kind of gal that is just plain, "sparkly."  She did an outstanding job of choosing all her vendors.  She was almost to the home stretch when she decided to hire Haute Weddings for Day Of Coordinating.  I enjoyed my time with her and Bubba and both of their families.  Photos courtesy of Skeem Photography.  Images limited in respect for the family's request for privacy.









janie and lawney - The McNay - Rio Plaza

This event is dear to my heart for it is my in-law's 50th Wedding Anniversary.  They started the day by renewing their vows in front of their children, grand children and great-grandchildren.  Then, headed off to the wedding reception they never had at the Rio Plaza, downtown, San Antonio, TX.  Photography by www.araphotography.com
