Katrina and Jonathan - Turtle creek ballroom (san antonio wedding planner)

During one of my first meetings with Katrina and Jonathan, Katrina told me her father is the famous Tejano singer, Michael Salgado.  With Jonathan's last name being Leija, I would have fallen out of my chair if he had also told me he was the son of Jesse James Leija.  BUT, that wasn't the case.  Katrina and Jonathan already had all the "hook-ups" and sponsors for their big event, so she hired me for Day Of Coordinating.  She was still in need of a florist, so my Recommended Vendor List came in handy. I must confess something.  Although I have lived in San Antonio for over 15 years, I am not familiar with the Tejano culture.  I know, I know...shame on me.  Well, I got a heavy dose of it and you know what.... I LIKE IT!  Everyone was so warm and welcoming.  Helpful and friendly.  You could tell that these people knew, not only how to work hard, but also how to play hard.  Michael Salgado sang a lovely song for the bride and groom and the band played throughout most of the event.  And then the big surprise.....wait for it...wait for it....another Tejano star, Elida, arrived to finish off the event!  Everyone danced, I mean, cumbia'd the whole night.  It was so much fun!  And even I couldn't help but go out and dance to at least one song.

Congratulations Katrina and Jonathan!

Good times...good times...
