When we first visited San Antonio’s Hotel Emma — housed in a former brewery in the historic Pearl district — we were mesmerized by its industrial chic aesthetic and old-world luxury. (It’s already earned a spot on Condé Nast Traveler and Travel + Leisure’s 2016 lists of the best new hotels in the world).
It comes as no surprise, then, that this thriving S.A. locale is poised to become the ultimate bridal destination. On Friday, August 12, from 5 to 7 p.m., Hotel Emma invites guests to experience an exclusive bridal showcase featuring event spaces in full decor, catering from chef John Brand, of the hotel’s acclaimed restaurant Supper, wedding cakes from pastry chef Jenn Riesman, and more.
A variety of wedding experts will be on hand to demonstrate myriad services to couples, including photography, live music, interior decor, floral design, and wedding planning. The event is complimentary to anyone seeking to immerse themselves in Hotel Emma’s simultaneously historic and trendy atmosphere.
RSVP by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org by Monday, August 1. A special $195 date-night rate will also be available the night of the event.
