What keeps you passionate about weddings?
I love seeing couples in love and seeing all their unique ideas and styles each couple has. I love watching and helping the couples plan their dream wedding and watching all their ideas come to life on the wedding day!
What common mistakes do you see couples making?
Going over their set budget. If you find you go over budget don't panic just talk with your fiancé and try to reach a solution. There are so many ways to save on your wedding, one way is to give up an item or trade one for another.
What sets you apart in your industry?
There are so many great aspects to Geronimo Oaks. Beautiful views of the Texas Hill Country that are perfect for photos, the feeling of being so far away from the hustle and bustle but being conveniently located in Seguin, and the dedicated team at Geronimo Oaks that is so dedicated to weddings and events.
I think another thing that sets us apart in our industry is our amenities. We offer an all day rental, use of chairs and tables, large bridal and groom suites, furniture set up & breakdown plus clean up services at the end of your event, a catering prep room with separate service entry, couples choice of vendors, landscaped gardens & beautiful waterfalls, large parking space for guests, use of space for engagement & bridal photo sessions, and no hidden fees.
What’s the best tip you have for a couple planning a wedding?
Stay in your budget and keep lots of lists! Geronimo Oaks offers a variety of venues at different prices for different days of the week. If you want to save money book your wedding for a Friday or Sunday that's just one way to stick to your budget.
Keeping lists of what you need to do is extremely helpful. Your mind can be all over the place and lists help categorize things.
What questions should couples be asking that they don’t know to ask?
A very important question to ask is "what is the rental fee and what is included in that price". Sounds like a basic question but couples need to know what exactly they are getting when they sign the contract just to be sure that they know what to expect on the day of their wedding.
What your best piece of advice for couples planning a wedding?
Try not to get wrapped up so much in the planning and enjoy this special moment in your life. Being engaged is one of the best parts of the wedding process so enjoy it together!
What’s the most unusual wedding you ever did?
I worked a wedding once where they had Batman and Deadpool come entertain guests during cocktail hour. I thought that was pretty funny and a great way to entertain guests while the bride and groom take pictures!
What was the most memorable wedding you ever worked, and why?
There was a wedding I worked where the couples love for each other radiated. Just watching the ceremony and their vows were so touching, you could really tell how in love they were with each other! It was like something out of a movie. That's what makes working weddings so worth it!
