Merry Christmas from Kendall Plantation!

Yes…don’t remind me it has been over 5 months since my last blog!!! We have been busy at KP making it beautiful and connecting with beautiful brides! Since we last spoke in July, we hosted MISSION Wedding; a huge hosted wedding valued at over $60,000. Vendors in and around San Antonio so kindly donated their services for a military couple to have the wedding of their dreams. Kendall Plantation and Haute Weddings took applications earlier in the year for a chance to win this once in a lifetime dream wedding. After much thought and interviewing, we chose a couple that could not have been more perfect and deserving for this occasion. Their story is unique and special and we congratulated them and thanked them for their service to our country by hosting a dream wedding for them and 150 of their friends and family. The wedding was stunning and we pulled out all the stops at this wedding! From invitations, to fireworks everything was donated for this beautiful couple to enjoy. We had so much support from this that we decided to do it again this year. With the website up and vendors all lined up, we accepted the first application today via MISSION Wedding’s website. www.missionwedding.org. Check it out! 
 
 After Mission Wedding, we dried all our tears from happiness of that special day and transformed the mood into a party place for The Knot to have their annual Knot Party….it was so COOL!!!! It was great to have all vendors in one place to socialize and network with each other in a non-wedding environment! One thing is for sure, San Antonio has some great vendors who really love their brides. We are so happy to be a part of it.  We summed up August weddings that included a helicopter landing as a get-a-way, several fireworks displays, and we even made it snow inside! I love my job! 
 
Then came September…and a baby! Kendall Plantation welcomed our newest addition Ms. Charlee Janelle Voss. Weighing in at 6 pounds 12 ounces and 21 inches long, we are so blessed with this little GIRL and could not be more happy! 
 
October and November flew by and we had lovely fall indoor and outdoor weddings at KP. We decided to get in the cheery mood and add Christmas lights to all the columns outside and the trees by the Gazebo. I think we may do this every year as it looks great in pictures! The charming white light adds romance and a warm feeling that you just can’t get any where else. I think November/December might be my new favorite time of the year at Kendall Plantation. 
 
So, I wanted to drop in and wish everyone a Merry Christmas. The Kendall Plantation family can not explain how much we love what we do, and we love working hard for our brides. Christmas is the best time of the year and we want to share our Christmas wishes with you. We will be closed Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, but will return Wednesday. 
 
Merry Christmas, 
Kendall Plantation

Vendors we love…love you too.

2 Reasons:

1. KP knows what you are getting when you hire any of our recommended vendors. 

2. KP does not know what you are getting when you hire your own.

Let me expand on these two reasons why you should not hire a caterer outside our recommend list!! We are happy to let you choose your own caterer…after all…it is your wedding, but, let me tell you how important it is to have a caterer that knows what they are doing and genuinely cares about the turnout of your event. I included just a couple of photos that are frightening and clearly prove the lack of professionalism and care towards a wedding. I know how much you are paying us, your dj, planner, flowers, cake people, dress, invitations, decorations…OMG the list goes on and on…so why would you put all this effort into planning the perfect wedding that represents you and let it go with a caterer who shows up late, has dirty dishes, doesn’t cover the tables, doesn’t have enough staff, food was cold, etc.
Did I lay that on thick enough? Kendall Plantation goes to all lengths to make sure all your vendors know what to expect and do on your wedding day. It seems that everything falls back on the caterer, and when it is their turn to preform, it is already too late to change them. So, in effort to help you, we are offering an amazing deal. If you choose at least 6 vendors from our vendors we love list (one of them being the catering) we will give you a free sparkler send off and $50 off your contract for each vendor you book from our list. How doest that sound? Too good to pass up!!!
Merry Christmas,
Kendall Plantation
