We had the pleasure of meeting Nicole and Frank back in September of 2018 at the Bridal Extravaganza. We knew right away how sweet this couple was and that we hoped they would allow us to join the party! After we met, they decided to sign a contract and the day was theirs. They hired us for our Logistical Impressions package that allowed them to do all the footwork and then had us sweep in to finish things off.
Through the process, we kept up with emails regarding all the things that “should” happen. Contracts with vendors were signed and sent over. Recommendations of vetted vendors and open communication were the key to the success of the night!
They stayed on track with our monthly emails and always let us know how the process was going and what was done, what needed to be done and how it was coming along.
At our final meeting, they took our recommendations on how to make the day run smooth and implemented the ideas. Giant plastic tubs were filled with their personal items and we were able to keep everything together at the end of the night without worry of any items being placed somewhere difficult for them to find.
The first vendor to join us at Western Sky Event and Wedding Venue for the day’s adventure was Got It Covered. They provided the linens and the catering for the day. A navy blue linen was placed on the tables and a navy blue sequened runner was placed over it. The sweetheart, sign in and cake tables were covered with the same sequened as the runner but in full linen.
Although we had never worked with some the vendors before, we have to say... every one of them was a complete joy to work with and we can’t wait to recommend them to future clients!
Next came the cake! Jane Dough bought in a beautiful buttercream covered red velvet cake with what looked like a geoed peeking out from it. The crystallized sugar breaking between the cake was amazing.
Next up came Freesia Designs. They brought in high and low floral to set the tables and there was just enough bling that really caught the vision Nicole and Frank had for their big day. The bride's bouquet was a beautiful, large bouquet with white, blush and white anemones. The bridesmaid's bouquets were simply white and blush with a little bit of green to complement the bride’s bouquet perfectly!
Nicole and Frank decided not to do a large cake and decided to do a small bridal cake to cut, a small but VERY cool grooms cake provided by Yolanda Rodriguez, and cheesecake bites from The Celia Jacobs Cheesecake Experience. Each guest was provided a small cheesecake to eat!
Bianca Medina worked tirelessly in the bridal suite getting all the girl's hair and makeup done. Every single one of them was stunning and we wanted Bianca to do our hair and makeup too...but of course, there was no time for that!
Carly Barton Photography and Alamo HD Videography joined the party and began the process of capturing the moments that were so important. Carly and her second shooter, Hannah, jumped right in and kept the timeline on point! If they needed to make changes, we discussed and moved forward! Brandon and Art from Alamo HD, were right in step with the girls and we all moved like a well-oiled machine who had worked together a lot. (We LOVE it when that happens!)
The ceremony, although hot, went flawlessly! Charlie Feliciano lead the ceremony and the georgous rings, from Jared were exchanged.
Nicole was a stunning bride in her Stella York dress. Celebrations Bridal and Prom in New Braunfels was the place where she said: “YES, to the dress!”. The bridesmaid's dresses, a lovely color called Petal, were purchased from David's Bridal. Frank and his guys were looking dapper in their Calvin Klein suits from Men's Warehouse.
Cocktail Hour began the night and the drinks came pouring from the amazing staff of Western Sky Bartending! The giant bar was packed with people and the bartenders kept everything up and running! They were busy all night!
Dinner consisted of Pablano Chicken and Pork Tenderloin, veggies, potatoes, and rolls. The staff of Got it Covered Catering did an excellent job of making sure everyone had enough to keep them going through all the dancing that was about to commence!
Derek and Henry with Lumen Events got the party started and kept the night moving! They were both fantastic in keeping the dance floor full and really commanded the room! They too were such a pleasure to work alongside and we can’t wait to do it again!!!
It really was a fantastic party! Nicole and Frank, their parents and their guests were all so kind and wonderful to us! We thank them for allowing us to be a part of their special day and we wish them all the best in their future endeavors. We hope you enjoy the images as much as we do!
