    First of all, I want to start out with the basics.

    My wedding ended up looking like a Pinterest wedding and the only things I had to take care of were our photographer, DJ, alcohol, bouquets, officiant and attire.
    Candy took care of everything else - included in the venue cost.
    She provided the decorations, food, drinks, cake, hot chocolate/apple cider, tables, chairs, sparklers (for sparkler exit) and ceremony area. Our entire wedding totaled out to be less than $10,000 and it was GORGEOUS.
    Like any wedding, ours had a few hiccups. We were married on November 25, 2017. Our color scheme was ivory, burgundy, green, and hints of gold. I chose a bouquet to reflect these colors, however my florist gave me peach, green, blue, and dark red flowers/berries with no solution to fix the problem. My bridesmaids ran to HEB to buy new flowers and one of Candy's employees actually fixed the bouquets for me while the girls and I got ready.
    The other issue at hand was my groom. He had his bachelor party the night before our wedding (this was unavoidable as a few of his groomsmen arrived in town the day before the wedding) and long story short, he was still hungover before our wedding. I like to consider myself to be a laid-back person, but I was running on three hours of sleep and was VERY stressed out so I went a little "bridezilla" on everyone and was ready to push our wedding out a few hours so my soon-to-be-husband could get it together. Candy took the initiative to check in on him and then calm me down. She completely diffused the entire situation-something none of us expected her to do- and I'm still so grateful to have had her.

    She kept everything running smooth and on schedule and I would HIGHLY recommend the gorgeous venue and lovely staff to anyone looking to have an outdoor wedding.

    La Escondida Celebration Center's reply:

    Dear Heather: Thank you for your kind words! We were happy to be of service to you, your groom and guests on your special day! We are sorry your florist did not provide you with your request but our Decorator was happy to re-do all of the bouquets to your décor theme. It was a beautiful day! Although we have never had a “bridezilla”, we don’t think you were one on that day. Just a stressed bride with flower issues and a misunderstanding with the groom……. Nothing that couldn’t be fixed with a little tear, apology and love! Best advice I can give is: No matter the problem – Listen with an open heart; understand all sides of the issue with clarity; sincerely give and receive apologies; freely give MORE love. The answer to every problem no matter how large or small is LOVE. You will have to decide how LOVE manifests itself in the situation. Love can manifest as a smile, hug, hand-squeeze, cookie, song, dance or anything that brings joy to the both of you! Very best wishes to you both as you begin your “happily ever after”! Candy and the La Escondida Team

    Working with Candy and La Escondida was a wonderful experience. Our event was not decided until the last minute; so we had very little ready. When we went to see Candy, she recommended most everything from DJ to catering service. Because of her professionalism and vast experience our event was gorgeous and memorable. During the event, she and the members of her staff were on top of every detail. They always made sure that our guests were happy and had everything they needed. The decoration was breathtaking and the service was above and beyond. I highly recommend this venue to anybody that is interested and celebrating a special event that you will want to remember forever.
