Real Couples: Sonia + Charles

Meet Sonia & Charles! I am so excited they hired me to act as their "day of" coordinator. From the moment I met them, I knew I wanted to be a part of their wedding day. I could have talked to them for hours! Learn more about them below...

Names: Sonia Escobar & Charles Moss

Where's Home? We are originally from Killeen, TX.

Why a Houston Wedding? When we first started planning, we intended on holding the event in Killeen since a majority of our family live there. BUT when we did our research we didn't have very many options as far as vendors went. On top of that, we would've had to drive 3 1/2 hours every other weekend, and it wasn't worth the stress! So it just made more sense to have our ceremony in the city that we reside. Though most of our guest list are out of towners, we figure the people who really care about us will show up to celebrate. Remember ladies, its not about what everyone else wants, its about what you and your fiance want!

Length of engagement? A little over a year.

How long until the wedding? 115 DAYS!!!

Who did you first tell you were engaged? EVERYONE!! :)

If you had to start over in your wedding planning, what one thing would you do differently? Nothing. Planning is easy when you have a helpful fiance. He has been amazing!! Ladies, get your future groom involved!!! He might have some great ideas that will surprise you! And when you go with one of his ideas, this lets him know that the wedding isn't just about the bride, its about the two of you.

During the ceremony, who will be the first to cry? My mom! She is really good when it comes to water works!

What are your three favorite blogs/websites (besides STC's)? Etsy, The Knot, and Brides.com. I LOVE LOVE LOVE Etsy, I can spend hours on that site!!!

Why did you hire a wedding coordinator? OR When selecting someone to entrust with your wedding day, why did you choose STC? We hired a coordinator so we wouldn't have to worry about the little details on the day of. On the day of my wedding I want to enjoy myself! We chose STC because Resha has a good understanding of what we want!. I trust that she will not only make our ideas work, but that she will take them to another level!

Special note from the bride regarding the super cute save-the-date above: To save on money, we bought a tripod (since we have a nice camera) and roamed the city looking for a perfect spot to take photos. He did the adjusting and running back and forth to set the timer over and over again, and I did the graphic design for the Save the Dates! Talk about team work!! ;) We had sooooo much fun with the process and the end product came out great!!!

Thanks guys! I can't wait for your big day!

Much love, Resha
