In our recent edition of San Antonio Weddings, we showcased a few tables from area designers. With the limited space, we are not able to show all the great work that went into each one. So here is a glimpse of a beautiful autumn-inspired table from Ambiance Floral & Event Designs and Brigman Enterprises. They did such an amazing job.  


Check out the entire spread in our the digital magazine here. Thank you  ZaZa Gardens for letting us use this awesome space and Kurtis Kronk for sharing your images with us.

Open House recap

I’ve been dying to share my experience of the Event Professional’s Day in the Hill Country however my iPhone snapshots just wouldn’t have done the day justice. Thankfully the talented Daniel Holman of Daniel Holman Studios was there capturing parts of the tour and allowed us to share some of his beautiful imagery with you. His photos do a far better job than my words so I’ll try to keep the yapping to a minimum.

The day started at Blanco Luxury Inn & Suites, an easy drive up 281 North from 1604.  Here, event professionals gathered from all over central Texas and mingled while visiting the booths of several local wedding & event vendors. They offered food samples, promotional items and great information about their businesses. 

Then we boarded a party bus with a wide array of refreshments that shuttled us to two beautiful properties: The Studio at Fischer and Rancho Mirando. 

 

The day was seamlessly coordinated by the team of Studio at Fischer and a blast for all that attended. From the LBJ Park tour guide that gave us an oral history of the area to the hilarious gun fighters that entertained us, it is clear that every detail of the tour was well thought out.  Oh and did I mention the delicious cuisine by 3 different caterers and the free flowing spirits?  Yes all of this made the very warm day a refreshingly cool experience.

As for the 2 properties we visited – all I can say is wow, just wow!  Both were so breathtakingly beautiful yet unique in their own way. Studio at Fischer has a modern, urban flare yet it’s nestled in the gently rolling hills of Fischer, TX. The studio space is posh, open and swanky. Its exposed brick walls, checkered flooring and ceiling structures make it an event designer’s dream canvas as seen in the images here. 

 

Their outdoor ceremony site is tucked away in a lush garden oasis with plenty of shade. And the expansive patio and pool area allow for scenic outdoor receptions under the beautiful Texas skies. Other amenities include a theater room, hair & makeup space and contemporary sleeping quarters upstairs with gorgeous panoramic views.

Rancho Mirando or the “the looking ranch” is a rustic, Spanish Mission-inspired property with luxury amenities and unrivaled 360 degree views. The 50-acre guest ranch sits on a ridge called the Devil’s Backbone overlooking the Wimberley valley. That means any direction you turn, stunning vistas are seen. 


The beautiful guest house sleeps up to 16 people and the property also offers two areas for receptions. There’s a large covered patio space with a full outdoor kitchen, bathrooms, fire pit and sparkling pool. Then further up the ridge sits the stunning Pavilion facility built with twenty foot wide stone arches closed in with glass barn doors.  The doors slide open weather permitting to allow the cool hill country breezes and spectacular views in.

from Constante Cosmetics

Being professionals in the wedding industry, we see dozens of weddings and wedding-related things every single day (yes, even when we're not working). And out of all of us, I am probably the biggest advocate for telling all of our brides that they need to hire professionals when it comes to wedding services-photography, videography and makeup are probably the biggest services that NEED a pro. 

Why? Well, for one, you only get one shot to capture your wedding. So obviously photography and videography explain themselves. And two, you only get one shot to capture your wedding. And since you're spending all that money on getting the best photographer and videographer you need to look your best. The expression "camera-ready" is a real thing. You don't want to look washed out, not yourself or like you've been out clubbing all night on your wedding day because you decided to do your own makeup. Hire a pro. 

Don't think you have the funds? Well, then learn from one and use what they use. 

With that said, I was soooooo... excited that Jennifer Constante with Constante Makeup Artistry told me she was launching her own cosmetic line. Yup, she's tested, tried out and worn a trillion products to come up with the best, longest lasting, highest quality makeup out there. 
 
She's already come up with a fall collection--Velvet Rose. I love these colors. I love them because in only a few products you're able to get two looks, a day and a night. And without starting completely over. It's sophisticated, feminine and can either be bold or subtle. 
 
Jennifer's blog is even super awesome. You know, those Pinterest-worthy pictures of beautiful girls all dolled up but in a everyday kind of way? Yup, that's what she has on her blog. With tips, how-to's and all that jazz. Want to read more about that? Check it out here
