Freedom is the open window through which pours the sunlight of the human spirit and human dignity. ~Herbert Hoover

And finally, we wanted to introduce a few of the educators you’ll be learning from on July 14 and let you in on what they’ll be throwing in our swag bag and offering up for raffle prizes!
The Witte is our gracious host! The Witte got its start in 1923 when school teacher, Ellen Schultz, had a goal of starting the museum for the city of San Antonio. She raised enough monies through fundraising to purchase the museum’s first collection and install it at Main Avenue High School. Two years later, local businessman, Alfred W. Witte, passed away and left $65,000 to fund the museum. The museum officially opened a year later!
The Witte currently has numerous exhibitions, but you can’t afford to miss Survival: The Exhibition OR Dinosaur Gallery. Coincidentally, the open house portion of our Wedding Academy will be set up beside and beneath the dinosaurs.
If you’re into museums, dinosaurs, survival, city history, or unique wedding spots, then you’ll be pleased to know that The Witte offers event rental space for up to 1,500 people. Their different rental options allow for use of indoor or outdoor areas. This is the perfect setting for any special occasion for which a distinctive and versatile location is required.
Swag Bag: $3 Discount for General Admission to the Witte
Raffle Prize: Witte Gift Bag filled with Lots of Goodies

Lizzette will be on hand to answer all your questions about wedding floral—questions like, “Is there a way to save on certain types of flowers? Can I integrate artificial flowers with fresh ones? If I don’t have a favorite flower or wedding theme, how do I select my flowers? Do I throw my real bouquet—the one I spent $375 on—for the bouquet toss?”
