What is there to drink?!

Okay,

So you have booked your venue, caterer, photographer and everything wedding…now you have to find out who your bartender is and what you want to serve. Do you use the caterers bar tending service? Do you ask a friend?

When I go to a wedding, after the ceremony I find people are searching for the bar…where are the drinks…what is there to drink??? It really is one of the most important selections you can make for your wedding reception. By all means, I am not a wedding expert (yet!) but, I have been to tons of weddings, and hosted 4 at the Plantation so far! In the 3 out of 4 the Plantation has hosted (and several more in the future) brides have chosen the same bartender, Bartenders4You. Not only is Bartenders4You one of the most popular bar services in San Antonio, they are at the top of my list too! For one, Jennifer (the owner) is the most genuine person you will ever meet! Her willingness to tailor each drink menu for each wedding is really what sets them apart from the rest. Did I mention they have the BEST margaritas in town…seriously…when you order her margaritas you get all these extra flavors to add to your drink, the bartender will make it how you like it. For the record, the Pumpkin flavor is amazing! Future Kendall brides are so happy when they tell me what their signature drinks are, and what they are serving at their wedding. And they are always surprised when they find out a full bar is cheaper to do than beer and wine…can you believe that?! Who knew you could have a full bar cheaper than beer and wine?! Not only will Jennifer customize your drink menu, the girl will go shopping for you and take all the stress out of it!! So, when you are out there trying to find a bartender, search no more and go directly to Bartenders4You! They always deliver more than what you ask for with a professional and caring attitude. Cheers! -Kendall Plantation

Another Haute Wedding!

Saturday we celebrated a very specail wedding, not only for the couple but for the Plantation! It was our first wedding inside the building and we could not have been more pleased! Haute Weddings was chosen by the bride and groom to coordinate their entire wedding. The room was filled with interchaning jewel toned uplighting  from Illuminating Celebrations, and turquoise shimmering linens from Events By Reese. Devinnies Paradise added charm and elegance to each table with floral arrangments and candles, and Infinity Catering filled hungry tummies with delicious food!  The Plantation was filled over 300 friends and family to celebrate the marriage of Marcos and Kimberly Sosa! Guests arrived for cocktail hour on the wrap around porches awaiting the bride and groom to make their grand entrance down the stairs in the ballroom. We are excited to host weddings at the Plantation to see dreams come true! This weekend was truely special for everyone and we can not wait to host your wedding at the Plantation for more memories and history in the making! Thank you Lisa Morales of Haute Weddings for making the first wedding amazing and your vendors for taking care of our venue as if it were their own. We look forward to many more weddings with you and your team!
Cheers!

Grand Opening was Grand!

First, thank you for following our blog, we are excited to share information with you and glad you are interested in happenings at Kendall Plantation!

Our much anticipated open house/grand opening last night was a huge success! We had close to 500 people walk through our doors! Lisa Morales with Haute weddings hosted the event with some of her preferred vendors and did an outstanding job! Vendors included some the industries best and they were more than helpful to make this event amazing! I enjoyed visiting with all the current brides and prospective brides last night with their families and friends! Although the Plantation was not 100%, we were comfortable opening the doors for all to see the progress! Finishing touches are all that is left, and I am more than satisfied with the outcome of the construction. As you know, we had some unforeseen situations that held us up early on, but we worked through it and now are very excited to host the first wedding in the building this Saturday! I have to lift up all the brides that booked with Kendall Plantation early on when there was nothing but a section of land with cedar trees and an bone dry pond!  Those who shared the same vision we did with a simple set of plans and some rough sketches were given the big reveal last night and were more than pleased! I was overjoyed with the reactions of all the visitors and it makes me so happy to see brides get chills when they see themselves in their white gown walking down the aisle at Kendall Plantation. Dreams really will come true at the Plantation, there is nothing like it in the area. First class, and pure elegance warmed the room last night with the chandeliers, grand staircase and the views from the porches…wow!!!!

So, again we thank you for coming out last night to help us celebrate the grand opening of Kendall Plantation. Thank you for helping us make history, and thank you for letting Kendall Plantation have a part in your very special day! Cheers! ~Kendall Plantation
