Quinceneras vs. Bridals

Today Melanie and I joined Pablo, the city coordinator for BABC, at the San Antonio Event Center for the Quinceneras vs. Bridals Expo to help promote our upcoming Brides Against Breast Cancer event this Saturday. With a good turn out there we are hopeful for this Saturday and Sunday.

We all got to sample some delicious cakes and food, see beautiful dresses, and had some great entertainment. The Kings of Kinces from JD Showtime Studio in Houston, TX ( were especially impressive and held the crowd captive as they showcased their skills.

With August around the corner, Sharon and John's elegant daytime wedding is quickly approaching. We are finalizing all the details from their Mini St. Genevine Shiraz and Jalapeno Jack gourmet style cheese favors to the final design of the programs which Sharon's talented future son-in-law is custom designing.

The ceremony will be taking place at the St. Padre Pio Catholic church and the guests will make their way over to the Club at Sonterra to join them for mimosas and light hor dorvers followed by a beautifully catered meal. The wedding cake is going to be the "top off the wedding" a light and tasty signature citrus cake by Cakes and More.

Tracy and Jose's big day!!!

Photos are courtesy of Alamo Photographic ( Vladimir captured their perfect day in wonderful photos.

They celebrated their marriage at the Travis Park United Methodist Church. Guests walked across the street to the St. Anthony Historic Hotel.

Tracy and Jose had their first dance on clouds. DJ Ray from Music Flo Inc/San Antonio's Best DJ ( is one of the only to offer this beautiful experience.

The cake was absolutely delicious...Elms Bakery did a fantastic job with the wedding and groom's cake. They did a heart shaped cake with a replica of Jose's army uniform with his ribbons and exact boutonniere he wore on the wedding day.

I'm really gonna miss these two! Congrats, Mr. and Mrs. Leon!
