Signature Cocktails

No matter what type of event you're planning, it's always a nice touch to offer a signature drink at the bar. The signature drink can be alcoholic or non-alcoholic, depending on your personal preference. We recommend that the signature drink tie in a theme. Themes can be clever such as "Something Blue" being the bride's choice or straight forward such as "Old Fashioned" or simply naming the type of margarita that is being served. In Texas, it is very common to offer many types of margaritas. Here are a few Signature Drinks/Cocktails that we have seen in the past. Happy Planning!

Cheers to 4 Years

Happy Anniversary to Us! Events by Jennifer Craft is celebrating its 4 year business anniversary. Jennifer Craft has been planning events since 2011 and decided to go into business for herself in 2014. In 2015, we had a few weddings published in San Antonio Weddings Magazine and had many featured online. Business slowed down in 2016 because Jennifer has a small team and grew her family that year with a little boy. We see great things ahead in 2018! Here are a few of our favorite memories from the past 4 years. Cheers!

Elvia + Ale's Wedding

It was a cold and rainy day on December 16, 2017, but it was also the romantic and beautiful wedding day for Elvia and Ale! I had a great pleasure of coordinating their wedding. Elvia put many hours in to prepping for their happy day. She painted various wine and beer bottles for the centerpieces, it turned out very classy with her color scheme of burgundy and gold. As guests arrived, they signed the guest book, which was a globe - very unique touch! We moved the ceremony indoors due to the weather, but that didn't stop Elvia and Ale from staying positive and enjoying their special day. They were in love and ready to be married - that's all that matters! Everyone enjoyed dinner and danced the night away. The couple was sent off with bird seed - cute touch and good for nature. Enjoy highlights from Elvia and Ale's winter wedding at Texas Old Town!

Megan & John's Wedding

We had the wonderful pleasure of coordinating Megan + John's wedding on August 26, 2017 at Hotel Emma. Megan + John are one of the sweetest, cutest couple I know, and can withstand any storm you throw their way! It just so happened that Hurricane Harvey made it's debut the day of Megan + John's special day. With help from some amazing professionals, their wedding was beautiful and perfect in every way. The ceremony was moved indoors and the harpist played while guests entered the room and throughout the ceremony. Hotel Emma has a very unique style and acted as a brewery in the early 1900s. The reception took place in the Elephant Cellar. The refined, industrial look is accented with custom chandeliers made from 1920s bottle fillers. Huge brewing tanks are ranked along both sides of the cellar. Megan + John's floral complimented the space using orange, peach, red and greenery. I loved how the couple utilized the foyer space and kitchen in the hallway. Guests enjoyed cocktails and Photo Booth entertainment during cocktail hour. The kitchen was no ordinary kitchen and was used for one of the bars. Later in the evening, the kitchen was flipped into the cake area with extra desserts...oh, what a beautiful cake it was! After dinner, guests enjoyed entertainment by The Spazmatics Band. It was quite a show - everyone was on the dance floor! Why would they be sitting? It was pretty awesome! At the end of the night, Megan + John were sent off with ribbon wands.

Today, the spotlight is on Candy Creations by Sandi. Sandi Fender started out offering custom candy bars, and has now grown into making custom backdrops and bundles.
