Kicked it off with Freddy and Jocelyn (read more about it in Val's blog!). Great time at the Spurs with them!
Saturday morning it was sup to Celebrations with Roque and her mother Francine, to try on dresses. Roque looked picture perfect in all them, and I think she may have found a winner.
I got to see Erica and Isaac, and I forgot to bring my camera!!:( Boo.... We actually had a floral appointment with Seeds of Love, where they selected their wedding flowers. I am so excited about the designs Erica chose. Then it was off to Elms Bake Shopp where they picked out there cakes! Erica ended her long day picking up her wedding gown from the salon. So much fun!
Sunday, Val and I headed up to Pipe Creek to check out a location for one of our newest b rides, Gretchen. (See the pics below in Val's blog.)
Welcome to the SAWEC family of brides, GRETCHEN, JESSICA, KARLA, and CHRISTINE!!! We look forward to working with you!!!
Tonight it's back up to the office to contract with Karla, which I am so happy about.
I am looking forward to seeing Audrie and Troy tomorrow, at Statue of Design, to finish up her floral order, and show her the linens we had shipped in for her to view. Love flowers and decor!!
Teresa and I were treated to a night on the town with Freddy & Josilyn of "Seeds of Love"
Our night started out by being picked up in a limo and our hosts had already stocked it with our favorite cocktail. From there we headed down to the AT&T Center to see our San Antonio Spurs play the Rockets.
The ride down there seemed to go too quickly. Our host Freddy was very liberal with the cocktails. These 2 are one of the sweetest couples I have ever met and I really enjoyed getting to know them. We arrived at the game and we were escorted up to our suite. We did so much talking I am not even sure I saw a whole 5 minutes of the game. They were such a delight to be out with. We talked a lot of business, which I enjoy because you can always learn more. I love to see how other people in the industry view their role in a wedding. I can not wait to take my new brides to Seeds of Love, because just like their website says.....they are setting the new standard for customer service.

Friday we visited Veronyka's salon to check them out. Anthony did my highlights, then gave me a complimentary airbrush session, and Melanie got a complimentary hair cut, wax, and airbrush! And to think, she had just stopped by to pick up her pay check from me. They do fantastic work, and we are looking forward to bringing brides to their new salon opening up on Bulverde Road at The Mansions at TPC. We will post more info on them in the future!
Had such a great time this weekend with Rachel and Easton ,visiting Lost Mission. I love them! They had us to their home for breakfast and made us lox and bagels. YUMMMYYYYYY! One of my all time favs! Lost Mission is going to be amazing!
Nicole and David's wedding is around the corner, and Valerie and I are very excited about all their details starting to fall into place. We are looking forward to meeting with them, this week, at The St. Anthony to finalize details.
I am SO excited to be taking Roque, one of our newer brides to Celebrations Bridal on Saturday. Roque is just adorable. (My mom said I use adorable too much in my blog, but I cant help it!) She is. Her personality reminds me of one of my best friends, Krista, and actually looks just like Krista did when she was her age.
This coming weekend, Erica and Issac are coming to town and I cant wait to see them. It seems like it has been forever. We are doing floral and cakes. FUN! Erica is using an overall lace theme,and I am excited to review linens and decor with her.
Speaking of haven't seen forever, Angie and Rich are finally coming back to town, as well! In a week and a half! Rich and Angie are great together, and they also never get to see each other! She lives in Colin and he lives in DC. So I always get to see them SOOOOO happy, just because they are together:)
Tomorrow is going to be FUN, FUN, FUN! Before two new bridal consultations, we have head shots with our girl, Michelle of McGreey Squier. Cant wait to get some good photos to put on the website!

After that, I was of to Bella Bridesmaid for the Jenny Yoo trunk show. Thanks Kim for staying late and being such a great hostess! Theresa was eager to see what options her girls had. They feel head over heads for a strapless dress. Funny story...I asked Theresa to make sure the girls brought their strapless bras to try on with dresses. The girls made their way to the dressing rooms and looking at me with curiousness and asked, "what are the sports bras for?" I was confused...asked her and she said you told me to make sure they had a sports bra. TOO FUNNY! We all died laughing and cracked jokes.
A very productive day if you ask me.
Check out the pictures...
Gotta have your SPORTS BRA!
Here are some pictures of Lost Mission.
They met with Eloise from Seeds of Love (Florist and specialty gifts)... www.independentfloralnetwork.com/seedsofloveflowersandgifts/ One of San Antonio's newest and upcoming talented florist shops. She is fabulous...tons of ideas for options for their ceremony and reception which is going to be held at the timeless St.Anthony.
Then, it was off to taste some cake. If you want the best cinnamon rolls in town stop by the Elms Bake Shoppe... www.elmsbakeshop.com They gave them a nice spread of the different fillings and white cake vs chocolate.
We ended the night with a wonderful dinner at La Marginal (Puerto Rican Restaurant).

I fell in love yesterday. Yes, I am already married to my amazing husband, this is kind of a different kind of love. You know when you just click with someone and you know it's right? That's how I feel about Steven Pizzini of Pizzini designs. http://www.pizzinidesigns.com/ I just LOVE him, I do.
I also ran into to some old contacts of mine from years ago. Mario and Sandra Garza of Touch of Elegance. http://www.touchofelegancedecor.com/ I am looking forward to working with them with some of our brides.
I had fun talking to personal friends of mine, Freddie and Joceyln Boberg, who had just opened up Seeds Of Love next to Party City on Bitters and 281. http://www.seedsoflovesa.com/ . Very excited to work with them! Probably the sweetest people you will ever meet! Their wholesale director, Charles, and their designer, Eloise were at the Wedding Fair yesterday, and it was great to meet them.

Oh and I just HAVE to add this. I REALLY, REALLY, REALLLLLLY love Rachel and Easton, some of our clients, that are getting married in July. I just like them. They are getting married at Lost Mission, and you can follow the progress of the construction of Lost Mission with San Antonio Weddings magazine at http://weddingladysanantonio.blogspot.com/ .
