Mokara Hotel & Spa | San Antonio Missions Park
I'm going to try my best to convey
the beauty and romance of this past weekend
with Hilary and Lee.
There are certain couples you meet
that you can just feel the connection.
These two individuals
share a powerful love.
They've been together over six years.
When they were writing their vows separately,
they wrote about the same, exact memory.
What are the chances
with all they have experienced together,
that they would reminisce about the same day?!
They are so in tune with one another.
They know what the other needs.
They handle tough situations with humor
and kind words.
I believe in their happily ever after.
And I am so honored
to have been a part of this wonderful new chapter
in their love story.
To the Bride's mother Maria,
thank you for being so sweet and considerate
You are just a high class woman!
You had us laughing so hard.
I know the Bride and Groom
truly appreciated your support and humor!
To the Groom's mother Dawn,
it was due to your generosity that we had
this incredible hotel rooftop as the setting
for the ceremony and dinner.
Your personality had a huge impact
on the day.
I will never forget all you did.
The hotel was so lovely.
And I can not say enough good things about the staff!
From the valet Luis,
to the server Juan.
And the event coordinator, Krystal.
You were all very understanding
and such a gracious group.
I wish I had learned more names!
Those in the service industry
work their tails off and
are not always treated the best.
They definitely don't always get
the recognition they deserve.
So I want to make it a point to say
a special thank you.
We all know that without you,
the wheels would come off.
A sincere thank you to our Park Ranger tour guide
at The Missions park, Kate, as well.
She was so accommodating.
Please, be sure to get the proper permits
when using these stunning locations
for special occasions.
Out of respect for the hard work
put into preserving them.
Lastly, I want to give a BIG shout out
to the Bride's sister Brittany.
I have known this gorgeous lady for six years.
She is one of the most supportive and calming forces
anyone could have in their life.
I can't tell you how many fires she put out
to try and selflessly make her sister's
dream come true!
No one can relax Hilary,
like Brittany can.
She added greatly to the couple's
happiness that day.
By the time we sat down to dinner
on the picturesque rooftop of the Mokara Hotel & Spa
in downtown San Antonio;
I was tired and sore.
I had blisters on the bottoms of my feet,
gravel embedded in my knees
and I realized I hadn't eaten a thing all day
while working in the scorching Texas heat.
And I wasn't mad about any of it.
I worked my booty off for this couple,
because I wanted to!!
Because they treated me like family
and I just adore them!
I hope I did you justice Hilary & Lee!
I'm wishing you a lifetime of laughter
and love (and lightweight chairs, lol. Sorry Lee)
