I am so glad I chose Everlasting Elopements for my wedding. I wanted something small, but special, which is exactly what I got! My husband and I are both students, so I wanted an all-inclusive package where we could leave the planning to the professionals. Everlasting Elopements took care of everything! Rene and Kari have a calming presence, which was really helping to me the morning of (it was raining and some of our guests were late!). The cake was beautiful and delicious and I really liked my bouquet. We received our pictures about a week after the wedding (when Kari said we would) and some turned out really well. I do wish some more flattering angles were used, but I'm still pleased with the results. Overall, we had a wonderful experience and I'm glad we Everlasting Elopements to make are special day even better.

Some of the venues they offer do require a fee on top of their price so make sure you look at that. The officiant was very nice and we loved him. Our wedding was at 10 in the morning and it actually had been pouring down rain all morning. We didn't have a back up plan and they don't give refunds thankfully it stopped right at 10 so we were able to do it but if not I don't know what we would have done.

We had the best experience with Everlasting Elopements. It was flawless and the day was perfect!! We showed up and they took care of everything. The photographer, videographer and flowers were all there waiting for us on our special day!! Rev Rene Esparza took us to the side and explained everything in detail before we started. It was amazing how smooth everything went. They have the best recommendations on their website for hair and makeup and Sabrina Reyes and her partner make me look amazing and came to my hotel, which was less stressful than going to a salon. My flowers were gorgeous from Ms. Erin Rose and I let her make up my bouquet and surprise me. They were beautiful!!

We had the best experience with Everlasting Elopements. It was flawless and the day was perfect!! We showed up and they took care of everything. The photographer, videographer and flowers were all there waiting for us on our special day!! Rev Rene Esparza took us to the side and explained everything in detail before we started. It was amazing how smooth everything went. They have the best recommendations on their website for hair and makeup and Sabrina Reyes and her partner make me look amazing and came to my hotel, which was less stressful than going to a salon. My flowers were gorgeous from Ms. Erin Rose and I let her make up my bouquet and surprise me. They were beautiful!!

Everlasting Elopements responded with the following comments:

Maria, Reverend Christel Staurt (mentioned above as Rene) and her husband Austin were delighted to unite you in marriage and make your special day picture perfect! As, a husband and wife team just like myself and Reverend Esparza, it comes very natural to want to make another couple in love feel the same way we all do as happily married couples. We wish you Everlasting Love and Happiness.

I called them on Monday and had a beautiful ceremony on Sunday! Instead of squeezing every last dime they could out of us, they actually called me right after I booked & with some flexibility on our part (changed to a larger venue & booked 11:30a.m. instead of 5:30p.m.) they saved us $100! It was a quick yet just right for us ceremony. Our desire to include our children was met with open arms, our sand ceremony with them was perfection! They made our day truly one to remember, not to mention the change of venue worked in our favor-we have amazing photos.

They provided us with EVERYTHING! The tastiest wedding cake from Carol and the most gorgeous flowers from Erin. They also provided a wonderful photographer and now I have the most beautiful images and memories because of them. Reverend Rene Esparza was so great and was very clear on where to stand, walk, etc. I loved every minute of it! Thank you to Everlasting Elopements for helping me create wonderful memories for my family.

I was so nervous and they made it better. Thank you guys! I couldn't have had a better wedding that day.

Everlasting Elopements coordinated a backyard ceremony for us. It was perfect! The details came together beautifully. Kari, Reverend Esparza and all of the staff are so professional and responsive. They're great at informing everyone of the process while giving the bride and groom the freedom and flexibility to make the ceremony their own. I have a son cerebral palsy from a previous marriage whom we wanted to include in the ceremony. Kari and reverend Esparza made all the necessary accommodations so that he could walk down the aisle (he has motor impairments) and be right there beside us. The set up and tear down is done quickly and efficiently as to not interfere with the guests staying for the reception. I was not stressed for one minute as the bride. They coordinated everything from the officiant to the cake (which was beautiful and delicious)! I would ABSOLUTELY recommend Everlasting Elopements to anyone wishing to do a backyard in the San Antonio area. You will not be disappointed.

This review is on behalf of my son and new daughter-in-law, whose wedding I helped coordinate. My son, who is active duty military needed to move his wedding date up from late fall to April, and it was a destination wedding as he couldn't leave his post for longer than a few days. I live 2000 miles away and was totally unfamiliar with San Antonio, where the wedding was to take place. I researched on line and found Everlasting Elopements. It was truly a blessing to find them. Kari, the co-owner, was patient, kind and fully engaged with me right from the beginning, even on very short notice. Although I was disappointed we could not use their first venue choice (due to Fiesta weekend in San Antonio, lots of places were already booked- definitely not the planners fault), we found a lovely courtyard venue which turned out to be just perfect. Kari worked closely with us and the venue (a hotel) to secure everything we needed. I used Everlasting Elopement's florist, Erin Rose, to design the bridal bouquet (beautiful and exactly as specified- the bride was very pleased), their cake vendor, Ya Ya's Lollys (the cake tasted wonderful, but was a little wilted in the outdoor heat that afternoon), and their photographer. Also used the officiant recommended, Rev. Audrie Henry. She contacted me ahead of time to confirm vows, arrived well ahead of the ceremony to meet with both the groom and bride (since we hadn't been able to have a rehearsal) just to make sure everyone knew exactly what was going to happen. Even though we'd never met her in person before, she conducted the ceremony as if she'd known the bride and groom; the ceremony was personal, warm, casual and genuine. Our guests had a wonderful time. For our tight timeline and rather unique circumstances, Everlasting Elopements really provided a beautiful, quality wedding package at a very good price. Considering all the details that were included, I am so grateful to have found them.

Rev Rene Esparza & his wife Kari Esparza were amazing to work with. We were last minute in our decision making to elope, but Kari took very well care of us. She was very quick with her responses to all my questions and made sure to provide me all the information I needed. It was a great ceremony, intimate and so much more beautiful and personal than we thought possible. They also provided photography, and we absolutely loved all the great moments captured in the photos. I'm so glad we found them. We were extremely happy with their services and highly recommend them! They provided a very smooth, stress free, and enjoyable experience. Our guests also loved the ceremony!

No hassle, no problem, no worry, on time, very nice people, made the day the one we hoped for. We could not recommend them any higher. This is a fantastic couple, providing a great service. They are in high demand as they should be.

Reverend Esparza was amazing! He arrived super early... He was very professional and helpful.. We had a violin and Cello and they didn't know for how long to play certain songs, and he would make a very subtle head movement so they knew the prayer or reading was ending soon.
I AM REALLY GLAD he performed our wedding and I HIGHLY recommend him. The weather in Austin was terrible and it made me nervous since he was driving from San Antonio.. But that didn't stop him from being on time (not only in time but early enough not to make everyone nervous about him not being there yet)

My husband and I didn't know exactly how we wanted to have our ceremony conducted, but we knew we wanted to have a private ceremony limited to just the two of us. Unfortunately, there aren't many options when it comes to having an eclectic and simple ceremony that isn't just a trip down to the JOP; lucky for us, we found Everlasting Elopements online and decided to trust them and their services. We were not disappointed! They were incredibly flexible when it came to our schedule (we traveled into Austin from Houston), and joined in our laughter and celebration alongside us making our moment truly magical. If you are looking for something simple and unique, yet still genuine and more heartfelt than a civil reading at the court house, then Everlasting Elopements is undoubtedly for you!

Everlasting Elopements responded with the following comments:

Angel,

You and Wade's ceremony weI will always remember! Not only was it so unique to have it on the balcony of the Fairmont Hotel on New Year's Eve with the Tower of the Americas in the background, but the fact that you and Wade have such a deep and loving relationship that shined through both of your smiles! It was a true honor to be part of your special day. Marrying your best friend is the key to any lasting and loving relationship!

Wishing You Everlasting Love & Happiness!

Rev Rene Esparza & wife Kari Esparza were wonderful. We were married on Christmas Eve and slightly nervous how this would go, however, they helped make our wedding stress free and beautiful. They were professional, friendly, and easy to work with.
I highly recommend using their services.

We booked our ceremony with Kari a month out and she made it so easy. I asked her tons of questions and she always responded promptly. For the price they really went above and beyond and gave us the ceremony we wanted. The included flowers were beautiful and the cake was moist and yummy. It was great that we could use. vows that fit our religion. Thank you Kari for all you did.

What a fantastic experience. Rev Esparza and his wife were punctual, professional, sincere and so calm. The rev was sensitive to our moods, took our cues as well as led us for the parts that we were unsure of. If I got married again (which I really hope I don't) I would go to Rev Esparza again.

We were extremely impressed by the comforting atmosphere and welcoming environment that they provided. They made our day tremendously special even though it was raining weather and 30-40 degrees out. I would recommend their services to anyone especially a couple looking for an elopement in a beautiful outdoor setting. The pictures came out amazing. Exceptional photography and the backgrounds were so picturesque and colorful. They were professional and friendly and really seem to love what they do. I am so thankful that they provided us with such a unique and memorable elopement.

Rene & Kari did a wonderful job with my November 3, 2013 wedding on the San Antonio Riverwalk. This is a second marriage for both myself & my husband. My 1st wedding was a study in stress. My husband's 1st wedding was, well, weird.

We both wanted something small, simple, elegant, & stress-free. Everlasting Elopements gave that & so much more. I suppose they can't get credit for the absolutely perfect weather (we were blessed with one of the 5 perfect days San Antonio is allotted each year), but they do get credit for taking everything else in hand. All I had to do was have a short conversation with Erin Rose (the florist) & she created exactly what I saw in my mind's eye. My bouquet was stunningly elegant. I had a short email exchange with the baker, Carole Hookings, & our small, vanilla cake with buttercream frosting & beautiful rose & a dot pattern motif was lovely to look at & tasted divine!

The location, the La Gloria Falls on the Riverwalk was gorgeous! Blooming red rose bushes, duck families in the water, & the ceremony itself was under a lovely tree. The serene, natural beauty made it easy to forget you were in the middle of a busy urban center. When we arrived, Kari handed me my bouquet, showed our 3 guests to their seats, & led us under the shade tree, where Rene waited to bind us in matrimony, using their ceremony 7. We could have altered it, or written our own, but 7 captured our feelings completely.

Rene was wonderful --his reading was solemn, but joyful & affirming. He handled the whole thing with consummate professionalism. Kari took the pictures, but was quiet & unobtrusive. The photo session after was efficient & fun, & the outcome amazing (I hate being photographed, but she did a great job!)

I highly recommend Everlasting Elopements--for a small wedding or large. They are the best!!!!!

I cannot begin to put into words how happy I am that I found Everlasting Elopements and Chapel Dulcinea. My now husband and I were just going to do a quick ceremony at the JP but once I saw the website I knew we would regret it if we didn't do something more. We still had our simple ceremony, but instead of being inside some old stuffy office, we had beautiful views of the Texas hill country and an officiant who was focused only on us. Thank you for offering these services as such a great price...I love looking at my wedding pictures and will carry the memories of that day with me for the rest of my life.

Kari responded very quickly, being we were on a shortage of time. Kari provided all information for us making this whole experience VERY simple. We did the Sunday Vow Exchange and the photography package. When we showed up Sunday, I realized I had forgotten my flowers at the hotel and there Kari was with a beautiful, fresh bouquet for me! The ceremony was perfect. Reverend Rene made us feel so comfortable. It was very intimate!! Kari also did our pictures which came out amazing!! Price was also an issue for us on everything and we got an outstanding deal compared to other officiates and photographer. We had such an amazing experience that if I had to do it all over again, we would go back to Kari and Rene. In fact, we will be having a big wedding with all of our family this upcoming year and will hopefully be having Kari and Rene there for us again! Thank you Kari and Rene!!!

My wedding was a dream come true, thanks to the everlasting wedding team.from the moment I contacted Kari, I knew everything would come out all right.
She was always very professional and patient. I say patient because English is not my first language. Despite this, Kari was always eager to help and made everything happen without a hitch.
Her attentive and creative team designed a beautiful bouquet and delicious cake that we all enjoyed. Our officiant, Gabi, gave us all the support to speak out happily as a newlywed couple.
To the photographer, not only must we applaud your work, we deeply enjoy our photography session. Also we would like to thank you for making our song selection happen.(Frank Sinatra, I love You baby )
Despite all the travel expenses, we were able to comfortably afford the ceremony and reception. We will not hesitate to recommend you to friends and family and will remember you when it comes time to renew our vows.
For anyone looking for a beautiful ceremony and reception for under 1000 dollars Everlasting Elopements is definitely the way to go.

Thank you so very much.

I could not offer a higher recommendation for Reverend Rene and his wife, Kari. I worked with Kari for months, and had to cancel our ceremony multiple times due to military obligations interfering with our plans. After nearly five months, we were finally able to get married. Kari remembered me from months prior, and still had all of our information. They are so warm, welcoming, helpful, and professional. You can truly tell that these two love what they do and believe in offering people wonderful service, and the ability to marry at an amazing price. Our elopement ceremony on the River Walk was perfect. Short, sweet, and we were able to use the exact wording we wanted. If I had to do it again, I wouldn't hesitate to hire Rene & Kari!

We both appreciate the experience and the photos that came out of it and would highly recommend their services to anyone looking to have a quieter wedding but still enjoyable and special for everyone involved.

My husband and I were completely happy with the services provided by Everlasting Elopements for our wedding last month. They were able to accomodate everything we requested in a short amount of time for our Sunday service. Everyone was not only so nice and extremely helpful, but also kind and went the extra mile. We had forgotten our marriage license the morning of our wedding, so Kari and Rene went out of their way to meet us at our reception to sign the license after our wedding. My sister and her husband used Everlasting Elopements for their wedding, and I would definitely recommend EE to anyone and everyone! I would even like to do a vow renewal in the future.

My husband and I were contemplating a destination wedding in either Hawaii or Florida. After seeing how much this would cost we also thought about eloping just by ourselves. A friend of mine pointed out Everlasting Elopements ceremony packages that were affordable and included a lot of what we needed. Also, we were happy that we could get married on the Riverwalk in San Antonio – where we had our first date! We were able to invite family and friends. Everlasting Elopements provided chairs, ceremony music, flowers, photography and even our wedding cake. Eric Rose did a superb job on the flowers. I emailed her pictures of my dress, bridesmaid dress and she nailed it. She also was able to accommodate another bouquet for my maid of honor and another boutonniere for the best man. Carole Hookings did a phenomenal job on the wedding cake – we got the white French vanilla with butter cream frosting. ALL of my guests loved the cake. Kari, with Everlasting Elopements, was there to help me plan my wedding from day 1. She is very knowledgeable about downtown San Antonio as well. If you’re looking to have a small, intimate, stress free wedding – go with Everlasting Elopements! My husband and I are glad we found them! We got married May 11, 2013 =)

Karie and Rene made my wedding a day that I will always remember. My husband and I were going to go to the Justice of the Peace because I did not have time or the desire to want to plan a big wedding.

However, I found their add and decided to inquire about their services. I had a beautiful day and the stress of planning was eliminated. The price was amazing compared to other officiant's and I was touched that they truly do this for the love of helping people make their day special. The cake and flowers were AMAZING as well.

I will recommend their services to anyone I know - they are phenominal.

I enjoyed using Everlasting Elopments because everything was taken care of for me. Being pregnant and trying to organize a wedding was something I didn't want to take on becuase I know how stressful it could have been. Kari basically took care of everything. All I did on my part was pick the location, speak with the cake desinger to discuss my cake and speak with the florist regarding my flowers.

I think that our wedding ceremony was perfect for my immediate family and close friends. The price was great because we weren't looking to spend a lot of money and just wanted something simple and romantic! The pictures were also great and Kari did a great job with them as well.
Kari and Rene were also very helpful and sweet by delivering our wedding cake to our reception site prior to our ceremony.

Overall, I think they did a great job with assisting us and I would highly recommend them to you future newlyweds! :)

All I did on my part was pick the location, speak with the cake desinger to discuss my cake and speak with the florist regarding my flowers.

I think that our wedding ceremony was perfect for my immediate family and close friends. The price was great because we weren't looking to spend a lot of money and just wanted something simple and romantic! The pictures were also great and Kari did a great job with them as well.
Kari and Rene were also very helpful and sweet by delivering our wedding cake to our reception site prior to our ceremony.

Overall, I think they did a great job with assisting us and I would highly recommend them to you future newlyweds! :) Read less

Rene & Kari were amazing. From the very first time I contacted them I received friendly & efficient communication and service. Every concern or question I had was addressed promptly and Kari went above and beyond in her service to us. We wanted something small and were originally going to go with the walk up Sunday service but as more family members decided to come, Kari told me about their wedding package which included flowers & cake & photography. In addition, since we married in February and I was concerned about an outdoor wedding, Kari worked with the manager of the hotel we were staying at (Drury Inn on the Riverwalk) to find an indoor location.
The day of our wedding we were amazed by the space, the decor, the flowers and the cake. I can't recommend Everlasting Elopements enough. If you want a small, simple yet beautiful wedding, they are the people to do it!

Everlasting Elopement made my wedding so memorable and personal. From the moment of contact they were efficient and professional. It helped that we had them do some leg work for us. We were just looking to make it simple yet special and we thought what better place than San Antonio. After that the Esparza's just topped it off with their quality of service on our special day. I would recommend them to anyone needing something simple but not wanting to worry about little details. I have already talking about them. Loved it!!!! Natividad and Norma Govea

Everlasting Elopements responded with the following comments:

We so happy we could unite you marriage and you were pleased with your ceremony. Bilingual Ceremonies are much more harder and involved then a one language ceremony in either English or Spanish. Not only does the wedding officiant have to perform the ceremony in both languages flawlessly, but the ceremony is of course is longer and time before the ceremony to draft up translate and practice the vows in more intense. Because of these factors of course we have to charge an additional $50 for the time and specialty of our Bilingual officiants. We are very proud to be one of the only companies in the Austin & San Antonio areas that offers this unique bilingual service so all family members can hear their love one's ceremony in their native language. After all when Rev Esparza and I wed we too had a bilingual ceremony but were forced to hire a translator which was much more expensive but we wanted to make sure all of our loved ones heard the ceremony in their native language. Wishing you Everlasting Love & Happiness!

I had an excellent experience with Everlasting Elopements. They took out the stress of planning a last minute wedding which is extremely helpful to a bride that is planning everything herself. The venue itself was Chapel Dulcinea which was absolutely beautiful. Everlasting Elopments, Ms. Kari specifically, took care of organizing the venue at the chapel, ensuring both the cake and the flowers were there, ensuring that the music was set, and even taking photography of the groom, myself, and my children during and after the wedding. All responses to my questions were promptly and professionally answered.
My cake was made by Yaya Lolly's a Cake and a Song, Ms Carole Higgins, listened to exactly what I wanted and made the most delicious and beautiful cake for my wedding. My bouquet was custom made by Ms. Erin Rose to match the colors of my wedding. I was exceptionally happy with the results.
Very impressed with service of Everlasting Elopements. Definitely recommend to those that are trying to plan a stress-free wedding on a budget.

This was a great organization to work with. They were very responsive and allowed us some flexibility with working our children into the ceremony, as well as modifications to the sample vows they had provided. Our only problem was the loss of all of the photos from the ceremony due to a failed memory card in the photographer's camera. They did refund us that portion promptly after trying several things to recover the images.

Overall though, an excellent group to work with on our special day.

Everlasting Elopements is the way to go for a small inexpensive wedding! They surpassed my expectations! I will be honest, my husband wanted a BIG over the top wedding, which we just couldn't afford. After finding Everlasting Elopements online, we had decided they were the way to go. It was hard for him to accept we were getting "eloped" instead of a huge celebration. But after the WEDDING he told me "you were right." It was perfect! We had our closest family with us, and it was such a wonderful memory! Reverend Rene and his wife Kari are GREAT! I really appreciated that he let us choose our own vows! Her florist and cake designer are amazing! The pictures are very professional. They really put together a wedding with all the little details needed to feel special! Thank you!

This was such a stress free wedding, it was perfect. They made everything easy. The cake was delicious and the flowers were great. I didnt even see a picture of my flowers until 3 days before because I let the florist pick an affordable flower as I picked an out of season one. The cake was chosen without tasting it before hand and people are still talking about it!

Everlasting Elopements is a great alternative to a huge, traditional wedding. My husband and I were looking for something more intimate and a ceremony that would not cost us an arm and a leg. I really liked that the Chapel Dulcinea package included a wedding cake and brides bouquet at well as photography. Each vendor for the flowers and wedding cake were professional and honored my requests. Kari was great in easing my mind about the itinerary for the ceremony as I had many questions. Everyone was experiencing traffic getting to the ceremony due to SXSW and spring break traffic but Kari and the Reverend kept me in the loop and we were able to start the ceremony a little later than scheduled to keep everyone from rushing. The ceremony was beautiful, Chapel Dulcinea is a beautiful location for a wedding, and everything came out great! For couples looking to book at Chapel Dulcinea with 12 or more guests be advised that chairs do not automatically come with the Elopement package and must be rented from the Chapel itself. This was something that is not clearly stated in the package requirements and I know I am not the only one who misunderstood this.Thankfully I realized this a couple of days before the wedding and was able to rent the chairs from the Chapel with no problems. Some people may not need chairs since it is a short ceremony but my husband and I wanted everyone comfortable in the chapel which came in handy since it started about 15 minutes later than scheduled. The only thing I would have done differently is to hire a photographer. The pictures that Kari took were nice but we didn't get any of me walking down the aisle, our first kiss, and some of the pictures were not cropped well and were not lit well. Plus, I would have liked more. But overall everything was awesome and I would definitely recommend Everlasting Elopements!!!!! Great job!

The issues I had were when making the ceremony reservation (i.e. date, time, reverend) I assumed that I would get what I requested, but my ceremony time was changed without being consulted and I did not get the reverend I requested. If you'd like to use this service I'd caution you to keep in mind that you may have to be flexible with the companies plans, though I should think it would be the other way around.
I purchased the couples elopement package which included photography, cake, bouquet and boutineer. The service partners I worked with (i.e. cake, flowers, and photography) were absolutely wonderful, very accommodating and a joy to work with. We chose the ceremony to take place at the fountains under the Tower of America's. I do want to let you know the fountains are very loud and it is very difficult to hear the reverend, let alone have the ceremony recorded. With all that said, it was a beautiful ceremony and I'm glad I chose Everlasting Elopements to be a part of my special day!!

Everlasting Elopements provided a quick and simple wedding ceremony for my husband and me. The location they recommended was absolutely beautiful. They communicated very well with us and helped us throughout the process of planning the ceremony, it was easy and stress-free. The only issue we had with Everlasting Elopements is that they arrived nearly half an hour after our ceremony was supposed to begin. Once they arrived told us they had had a family emergency, it would have been nice to have been informed they were running behind before our appointment time. Overall, I would recommend Everlasting Elopements to anyone requesting a stress-free simple wedding ceremony, they will take care of everything for you!

Thank you for taking the time to review our services. I'm perplexed though about the mentioning of being late to your ceremony. We understand the importance of wedding ceremonies being on time and would never be late to a ceremony without notifying the couple. We may have been right on time but never have been 30 minutes late.

Fell in love with Kari and Rene as soon as we met them. They were warm, caring, and open to having a totally unique or buttoned up traditional wedding. Rene did a great job the day of. The only trouble I had was trying to get a copy of our marriage license. We eventually got one a month later, but it made me miss the deadline at work to add my family to my insurance.

The officiant was great. He was sweet and very professional. The baker they used did a good job on my cake and was very easy to deal with. I was happy with the photography. They took plenty of shots. The wedding coordinator did a poor job on my music, no chairs were put in the chapel, and did nothing to resolve my issue with the florist. The florist they used is very unorganized and unprofessional. She was trying to force me into buying and upgraded bouquet and completely had the wrong wedding date. I suggest you only pay for the officiant and photography not the complete package.

Everlasting Elopements responded with the following comments:

Crystal,
Very sorry you felt this way but I'd like to address some of the issues. First of all, chairs are not provided at Chapel Dulcinea by our company they must be purchase from the Chapel (this is a restriction of the Chapel- stated in your contract). Since the Chapel is a non-profit this one of the ways they make money and continue to provide the venue for free. As, for flowers and cake our package includes the standard flowers and cake as described in your contract any upgrades are additional. I'm sorry you had trouble with our florist but I believe if you would have read the contract describing what type of bouquet was included and/or spoke to her directly as she requested any issues could have been handled easily. Ms. Erin Rose is a great floral designer and had made many of our brides visions come true on tight budgets, but just like most things in life communication is key! We are glad you loved Reverend Esparza that is why he is a Couple's Choice Winner and pictures came out beautifully!

Wedding was initially suppose to be at Fountains at the tower of the americas but it froze the night before. I called days prior asking what about the weather and they stated everything would go on no matter the weather. The day of my wedding 5 hours prior to i received a phone call stating that they wanted to cancel because there was ice melting and fall. I told her I would look for an alternate location and call back in twenty minutes. My family and I tried to call for hours with no answer and after about 3 hours got a response. Our wedding was moved to the observation deck in the Tower of Americas. It turned out nice at Rev Esparsa did a great job. The cake was delicious and bouquet was very nice. Pictures were ok alot of blurry shot but you get what you pay for. Overall everything worked out and it turned out to be a beautiful wedding with the help of the Esparza's. I would recommend this vendor to a friend.

Everlasting Elopements responded with the following comments:

All of our ceremonies are rain or shine but due to the weather the owner of the Fountains of the Towers of Americas cancelled the ceremony at the Fountains due to the fact that they had had many sheets of ice falling from the top of the Towers. For safety concerns we moved the ceremony indoors to the Observation Deck of the Tower of the Americas. At no point was the ceremony cancelled. I simply suggested the option to call the Charthouse since you and your party were already eating there to see if they would allow you one of their private rooms to host the ceremony in. This was simply a suggestion and if not the ceremony would be performed in the Observation Tower. Since our ceremonies are conducted in public spaces we have no say and must obey the rules and regulations set forth with the owners of the spaces. Thank you for choosing Everlasting Elopements and we wish you everlasting Love & Happiness

I have to say my ceremony did not go like planned. Once we arrived to the pavilion, there were no lights. We got married to the lights of our vehicles and phones. Definitely something to remember. I had purchased chairs for all my guests and due to the no lights they had to stand next to us with their phone. The chairs were a complete waste of money. We definitely paid more for what we got. For an elopement package the pictures and ceremony were ok in my own option, but my husband was very disappointed with the whole thing. It was quite an experience that we will never forget. They say if everything goes wrong, the marriage will be filled with bliss. In our case, i hope it's true. None the less thank you for being a part on our special day and erin rose for the bouquet. Special thanks to ya ya lolly's for going out of your way and learning a new recipe for our cake it was delicious.

Everlasting Elopements responded with the following comments:

Kim, We are very sorry about the lights and of course have no control over them. I contacted the San Antonio River Authority the next day to inform them about the situation and they have fixed the lights. We had never had this issue before. We did all we could to make the best of the situation and I even offered to take pictures the next day at the waterfalls which you declined the next day. I then offered that I would take pictures in the future for you and your family if you decided. Congrats on your marriage and hope the kiddos are feeling better.
Email from Bride morning after ceremony: Good Morning,
Thank you so much for making yesterday a success. It worked out because everyone loved the lighting with the phones. They felt like they were more involved in the ceremony. Don't worry about the pictures today. My babies woke up really sick so we won't be able to make it to the shoot. The ones you took will be fine. Thank you again.

I don't ever write reviews but I felt compelled to write a review of my not so good experience with Everlasting Elopements. I could write a novel to express my disappointment with this company but I will keep it short and simple. My experience was sub par and Kari made promises that she didn't keep at the end. Her follow up is non existence and she was dressed in jeans and a t-shirt at my ceremony. Those are only a few of my concerns. I was also told that I would have a non slip solid wedding isle for my outdoor ceremony perfect for heals but instead sheets were provided for $120 bucks. I had to focus on not falling all the way down the isle because my heels were sticking into the fabric. In conclusion, just BEWARE!!!!! I hope you have a better experience than what I had. I'm sure Kari will respond to this post and lie about her services. Just beware! She is full of excuses and does not own up to her mistakes. My suggestion is to do your wedding yourself or invest the money in a real event planner. I was being cheap and regret it! Good luck future brides!

Everything was wrong and very poor communication skills. My venue canceled (not their fault), however finding a new one I had to make calls because she never had the time to do them. She was too busy for a paying customer. She even asked me once I planned to reschedule for the pastor, which I did! She had the wrong person to marry us. I asked for the pastor got her husband, which he did very nicely. However the point is she didn't even let me know of the change! She didn't talk to me when she showed up except to hand me my flowers that Erin did a fabulous job! Didn't even introduce herself. Thank goodness for my hotel and my family!!! I did not get anything from her, complete waste of money.

Everlasting Elopements responded with the following comments:

Jennifer, sorry you feel this way but you did not hire wedding planning services or one of our packages that including wedding planning. You paid for an officiant and flowers at no point was I hired or paid to plan your wedding. Your wedding was reschedule and as stated in your contract if the ceremony can still be performed we will assign one of our officiants to the ceremony so you don't have the stress of finding another one if chosen officiant can not perform at the new time and date. Your review is of services that were not contracted. We do try and aide our couples in any way possible including helping to book venue space at our partner venues of which we did for you, but at no time did this constitute that I would be managing and planning your ceremony. The services you purchased was just to have an officiant come out to your venue to perform your ceremony as well as flowers which we brought with us as a convenience since you were from out of town and we did not want you to have to worry about making arrangements to get the bouquet when the officiant could bring to the ceremony. I'm glad you enjoyed the services you did purchase such the wedding officiant and flowers. As, you stated in your email to me we were honored to bring you and your husband together. Congrats and we wish you Everlasting Love & Happiness~

We were not pleased with our ceremony nor the photos. The Reverend had the wrong vows! They did not even have the correct vows with them- they had to improvise when we pointed this out during the ceremony! They gave the marriage license back to us to mail, instead of mailing it like they are supposed to. The wedding was at the State Capitol but we did not get a single picture with that in the image. Nor did we get any photos with our guests that attended except for when they were in the background of the ceremony.
I was not going leave a review but changed my mind after multiple email requests asking me to do so.
After reading EE reply, let me confirm: I DID in fact purchase the photography package for $125. I also provided EE with my vow selection via email a full 7 days before our ceremony. They were not custom vows- it was the 2nd of the two options you provided for us to choose from for the simple Sunday ceremony. This vendor is trying to blame me for the poor service they provided instead of taking accountability.

Sorry you had this experience but I think you may have had the wrong idea or interpretation in regards to our Simple Sunday Civil Ceremonies. These ceremonies are meant to be quick no frills ceremonies to make things legal. We require if you are having specialized vows that you have them to us 48 hours in advance otherwise we read our standard vow. We did not receive your vows by the deadline. We also do not offer photography with our Sunday Civil Ceremonies unless you purchase the photography package which you did not. We do often have a photographer onsite during our Sunday Civil Ceremonies (no guarantee) who will capture a few shots of the ceremony but not typically family shots or shots around the grounds of the venue of which you can purchase after your ceremony. Our photographer would have been happy to take any shots you requested if time allowed. Simple communication and timeliness would have solved the issues that you experienced. We strive to provide the best ceremonies possible even if the ceremony is just simple Civil Ceremonies because we believe all couples should have a memorable wedding day. Wishing you Everlasting Love & Happiness~!
