A Vintage Elegance Wedding at The Westin Riverwalk in San Antonio
Candace Ramirez (30, receptionist) and Casey Veil (35, vice president) met through mutual friends and were initially acquaintances. Candace eventually gave into Casey’s charm and went out with him. Four and a half years later, Candace, Casey and Candace’s son Connor took a Christmas vacation to London. Casey had plans to propose in the London Eye, but the night before they were scheduled to ride, he was so excited he asked for Candace’s hand in marriage at 2 a.m. Their San Antonio wedding was a vacation for a lot of their family and friends, so they wanted their guests to relax and fully enjoy the day. As soon as Casey saw The Arneson River Theater, he knew it was exactly where he wanted to marry Candace. Combined with the ambience of the San Antonio Riverwalk, The Arneson River Theater is an extremely romantic and beautiful location of vintage elegance. Guests were whisked away from the hotel to the ceremony by riverboats with mariachi bands so they could experience the beautiful scenery of the setting. Rustic lantern lights with succulents and garden roses provided additional lighting while lining the center steps of the aisle way. Candace and Casey had a traditional Christian ceremony with a tree-planting component set to music by a string quartet. Towards the middle of the ceremony, it began to rain, neither the couple or their guests let that put a damper on the night. The reception took place in The Westin Riverwalk, where guests enjoyed an elegant dinner and music by DJ Holtz Entertainment. The wedding cakes did not disappoint: the wedding cake was a delicious butter cake with a customized cake topper of the new family in exquisite detail. For Casey, an avid pilot, his cake was shaped like an airplane, complete with the registration number of his airplane. Candace and Casey’s wedding was an elegant, timeless and romantic affair surrounded by the natural beauty of the San Antonio Riverwalk from start to finish.
