Events by Reese

Have you ever wondered how "trends" are determined, particularly wedding trends? Sure coordinators and designers play a significant role in what's considered fresh and in style, but a lot of it comes from the wedding couples themselves. And when we at San Antonio Weddings want to know what's hot this season, we turn to our area professionals for some insight.

Today I got to hang out with the staff at Events by Reese, and let me tell you...these folks know what they're talking about. Just walking around the place was an inspiration. Here are a few photos I took of their design studio. 
 

They do everything from consulting and design to linens and flowers. They share office space with some of San Antonio's most talented wedding pros--Alberto Vazquez Photography, DJ Masquerade, Gary Gibson Photography, M-Pressive Paper Designs, Reese Productions, Richport Enterprises, Sweet Traditions and TGCO Productions.

Picks of the Week

What makes a good photograph? Well, a lot of things. But a couple things I LOVE in particular about pictures I see is texture and color, and these photographers were great at capturing both. Here's a little bit of sunshine to brighten up this gloomy weather. Happy Friday everyone!

Thanks for posting my photo. This is one of my favorite photos as well. I photographed this destination wedding at the beautiful Beaches Negril Resort and Spa. I've been shooting destination weddings for over 10 years and I have never seen a sunset like this anywhere else in the world. The amazing thing is...sunsets like this are a normal, everyday thing in Negril. The photo was not altered in any way. This is straight out of the camera.

St. George Maronite

Selecting a venue was probably one of the most difficult tasks when planning my wedding. Like most brides, I wanted it to be absolutely perfect. I wanted to walk into a venue I was considering and be blown away. It took 10 site tours to find "the one." And ironically, our choice was a "let's-just-see, it's out-of-our-price-range anyway" (or at least we thought) detour. Without an appointment or prior communication with the Catering Director we stopped by for a surprise visit and it's an understatement to say that I was "blown away." I was in love...with this venue. 

So maybe it was a little (ok, a lot) out of our price range, but I NEEDED to get married there. This is it. This is the only wedding/marriage we'll ever have, and the biggest/most expensive party we'll ever throw--let's do it right and the way we've been dreaming of. Well like several people, we got caught up in the planning of such an event that we let the real reason for this celebration slip our minds from time to time. While I have no regrets on our choice, your dream venue doesn't need to cost an arm and a leg. And you certainly shouldn't get into debt to have such an elaborate affair.

Selecting a venue isn't just about the color of paint on the walls or the fancy chandelier--it's about the convenience, location, service, price, among other things too. But if you want the grandness of a high-end hotel ballroom without the cost. Well, one San Antonio venue that offers all that for a price that's very reasonable. Welcome St. George Maronite Center. 

This place has nearly everything a couple is looking for--free parking, convenient location, lush greenery, experienced staff, reputable chef, and a upscale, luxurious ballroom (think a four-star hotel downtown). As I was meeting with the Events Manager KT today, she showed me around and shared several photos of the space done up. And after it all when she told me how much it would be to have a wedding there. I was floored. Really? All that for that price? I could not believe it. It was great to hear. I thought to myself "brides could really have a very beautiful wedding and still have money left over to spend on the honeymoon." 

So if you're in the market for a venue. Consider St. George Maronite Center. Set up a consultation and see for yourself. Tell KT The Wedding Lady sent you. Here are a few photos I took today. Please note, that it's winter and today was a gloomy day. 
 


You can have your ceremony out in the courtyard, or a cocktail hour, or set up lounges, which by the way they can provide. The possibilities are endless. 

 

Look what was on the table in the foyer. :)



The ballroom is beautiful. 



And look at all the fancy lighting fixtures the space has. 


These old-fashioned lamp posts lined the way to one of the ballrooms. How romantic!
