    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.

    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

    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.

    We had the joy of coordinating Trisha and Mark's wedding at Milltown Historic District in November. Trisha and Mark really took the time to make their wedding unique and special - definitely a DIY wedding. It was a beautiful fall wedding! The groom, yes that's right ... the groom made all of the centerpieces! As guests arrived, they signed a whiskey barrel as the guest book. During cocktail hour, there were giant yard games in the lawn by the river. The kids had a blast playing, oh and the

We had the great joy of helping Katherine and Aaron with their happy day. K+A are a super fun couple and wanted their day to be relaxed, yet sophisticated.

    Reeling in the Big One
    Our recent birthday boy was my son, Jameson! I enjoyed planning and decorating his special day with the theme "Ofishally One." Since my husband, John, likes to fish, I figured Jameson may too one day and become Daddy's little fishing buddy. Our little fisherman had an intimate gathering of family and close friends. Our dining room was set with all things to please your sweet tooth - cake, cupcakes and small candy bar geared toward the fishing theme. The candy bar had Twislers as "fishing line,"

    Sparkler Send Off
    After the wedding cake, toasts and dancing comes the send off! Couples are always looking for something unique and spectacular, but I have to say you can't go wrong with sparklers! If your venue allows it, I definitely recommend it. Be sure to add your personality to it -- do a dip, a twirl and kiss!! It creates the perfect backdrop for your photos and is fun for everyone! Brooke and Rick did it right -- check out their sparkler send off downtown San Antonio at Marriott Plaza!  Photos by Joshua

    Hotel Valencia on the Riverwalk
    It's Feature Friday and today I want to showcase Hotel Valencia! I had the great pleasure to re-visit the newly renovated hotel, which is located on the San Antonio Riverwalk. The style of the hotel is very unique, definitely not your "typical" hotel space. I would describe it as having a modern, yet old world style with some San Antonio flair. Hotel Valencia is styled and decorated with the most exquisite antique and stylish pieces of furniture and accessories, yet the price will surprise you
