Wedding Date: June 27, 2015
Reception Location: Bernards Inn
Photographer: Therese Marie Wagner Photography
Jeff and I are big foodies, so we wanted a venue with an amazing restaurant. After eating a delicious meal at The Bernards Inn, we decided to take a tour of the venue and were blown away. It has the timeless elegance and romantic swagger of a Humphrey Bogart movie.
Coordinating everything from Austin, we needed an attentive staff. Jessica Quesada, our event coordinator, was amazing. She answered every question we had and matched our energy, enthusiasm, and creativity the whole way. Near the end of our planning, we trusted her recommendations so much that we did not even sample certain menu items ahead of time. For instance, our strawberry-banana and mimosa cream cake was her collaboration with the Inn’s pastry chef.
We had a shortened Catholic ceremony in Saint Vincent Martyr, a beautiful church in Jeff’s hometown in NJ. Father George learned how to Facetime just so we could have our meetings with him from Texas!
