11/11/11 and More!

Wow, it’s been a busy November so far! Of course the 11/11/11 date was solidly booked for weddings and rooms (on such unusual dates we agree to do more than one wedding) and we could have done many more. Not only were our own brides and grooms staying, but the other rooms were filled with other honeymooners. Already 10/11/12 is booking up!  Pictured here are the new Mr. and Mrs. Campbell from 11/15/11.

Halloween Wedding

This year’s Halloween wedding didn’t have the spiders and eyeballs on the food table (like last year’s) but it was the first time that the guests were in costume. What a fun idea!

The bride and groom looked elegant and their attire reminded me of Alice in Wonderland or similar storybook-type characters. But what I was most impressed with is the fact that the bride made the dress herself and it was BEAUTIFUL.

Football Saturday

It was a highly unusual Saturday – a day without a wedding. Gregg and I took advantage of the day and went to see the UTSA Roadrunners at the Alamodome. It was a lot of fun and the Birds won it in OT.

It was such a pretty day that we decided to walk from there to Zinc for dinner and then walk down the RIverwalk all the way up to Brackenridge Park and back to the Inn.

Pine cone bouquet

One of last week’s brides had asked about upgrading to a bouquet to include a variety of white flowers, greenery and pine cones. I was a bit nervous about it since it was the first time I had ever attempted one with pine cones. It turned out well though, I thought. It looks bigger in the photo than it really was. She was a very petite bride. :) By the way, the photo was taken by Straughan Photography.
