Interested in adding a Reception?

Here Are the Options Available for the Japanese Tea Garden
Plan a Reception your own

 

Many couples plan receptions on their own at their homes, AirBnBs or simply make reservations at a restaurant.  If you are having 20 guests or less this may be the best option for your own day. If you need any services, we can provide as little or as much as you need from table settings to additional hours of photography!

Onsite Mini Reception

Onsite Mini Receptions are simple receptions meant to simply capture the moments of cake cutting, toast/speeches, and 1st dance immediately following your ceremony at the ceremony location.  These short mini receptions add about 20 minutes to the event and allow you to get pictures of these wedding traditions without the expense of a sitdown-style reception. Everlasting Elopements will set up a small decorated table to display your cake and provide all materials needed to cut and serve the cake as well as do a toast.  Additional reception services can not be added to this service.

Non-Meal Receptions

Everlasting Elopements offers smaller receptions for couples not wanting a traditional full reception with a sit-down meal.  Best for those couples having small guest counts who would not likely dance we offer the following packages:

1.  Mini Receptions conducted at a restaurant

2.  Cake & Punch Reception

3.  Cocktail Reception

Micro-Receptions (Micro-Weddings)

Our micro-reception packages designed for small guests counts are perfect for those couples wanting all the aspects of a large wedding but slimmed down to better suit their smaller guest counts.  Choose between these 3 levels :

1.  Dinner Reception Only

2.  Micro Reception

3.  Traditional Reception

Exploring your Destination

 

The Japanese Tea Garden is located in the heart of San Antonio, Texas. It’s in a great location to get around and see and do tons of things! It’s right next to the San Antonio Zoo, one of the best in the nation. It’s also located by Brackenridge Park, located on the river with plenty or trails and play areas. Across the way is the beautiful San Antonio Botanical Gardens

The Witte Museum and San Antonio Museum of Art are great places to explore if you’re an art lover or just need something to enjoy inside. For places to stay nearby, consider the Candlewood Suites, Holiday Inn Express, or the swanky Hotel Emma

Take a short drive to the historic Pearl Brewery district, which has markets every Saturday & Sunday and has a bunch of great food options in the area. Some of our favorites include Best Quality Daughter and La Gloria, both of which are great post-wedding dinner options!

Testimonials

We were so pleased to find [Everlasting Elopements], because we were on a budget and it was getting stressful planning the wedding on our own. I emailed them and after that, they took care of everything. Everyone was very friendly and professional. Our officiant Rev. Rene Esparza was very nice and his demeanor was warm and inviting. We have 4 children and we were able to include them in our vows and it was truly memorable.

Marie N.

The worst part for me was planning the wedding. Using Everlasting Elopement help me avoid all that because they took care of all that for me. It’s like a one stop shop, and being a person that’s new to the area it was a God sent. I didn’t have to find five different people to do five different things for just one wedding day. On my day I didn’t have worry about flowers or cake they pick that up for me & made arrangements for the photographer. It was exactly what I wanted EASY & reasonably priced.

Jessica E.

Everlasting Elopements was perfect from the moment I called to find out more information. The Staff was able to answer all of the questions I had and reassured me that I should not be nervous, they will take care of everything. The beautiful of it all, I did not have to meet, or go to an office because everything was done electronically. To say the least, I was very impressed. The day of, it could not go more beautifully. Absolutely amazing!!!!!

How does it work?

Everlasting Elopements’ unique and simple virtual wedding planning system was built to simplify the wedding planning process. To keep the stress out of the process, we have a step by step system to plan your wedding ceremony from now to ‘I Do’. 

It all starts with the ceremony package! Once you have selected this we can customize any extras and build on a reception package. Then we will help you select and book the perfect venue that fits your vision. Once you book, it’s just a matter of completing a few forms, then showing up on day-of with your license and rings– we do everything else!  Wedding Planning does not have to stressful or hard if you have the right team behind you to execute a flawless wedding day!

Weddings have many variables so it is essential to take things in steps in order to build a customized wedding package to suit your needs– this way you’re only paying for services you need (and nothing you don’t)!

 

1. Select Your Wedding Ceremony Package

Whether you are looking for an elopement, a micro wedding, or just a simple exchange of “I Do”- we have a package for you to choose from. The first step is to select which one is right for you.

2. Select Your Extras

Once you have selected your package, you can select which level suits your needs. Each package has a Basic, Deluxe, and Premium level that offers various upgrades and add-ons. This allows us to do as little or as much as you need on your big day!

3. Select Your Reception Options

Once you have finalized your ceremony plans, we can add on one of a variety of reception options. Whether you want to have a Mini-Reception or Full Reception on-site, eat at a restaurant, or plan a reception on your own, we can help with rentals, cake, coordination, photography, and everything else you could need.  If you decide to add reception elements in addition to your ceremony, we will simply pair the two packages together to get you the services you need for the full wedding day you are dreaming of!

4. Choose Your Venue

Now that we’ve gotten to know you and your wants and needs we can recommend venues that will work best for you! Or, if you have one already in mind, our packages will work there too. While we have many locations on our website for you to browse, if it’s not on our website we can still serve you there! Our packages work at ANY location!

5. Stress Free Planning

Once your ceremony has been reserved through our online reservation system, we will send you a series of emails with forms that go directly to your vendors. All you need to do is complete the forms and your vendors will reach out if needed. Remember, you always have the ability to add new elements as well as upgrade services you already have at any point if you choose!

6. Your Wedding Day

You and your fiance, along with any guests, will show up at the venue you have chosen with your marriage license and rings. The Everlasting Elopements Team of Wedding Vendors will take care of the rest and all the details so you can focus on what the day is really about- Marrying the One You LOVE!
