THE SCENE: The San Antonio Country Club was the perfect setting for a debutante party honoring three lovely young ladies hosted by their parents in the most spectacular way. Sarah Ryder (daughter of Amy and Doug Ryder), Barrett Wolff (daughter of Lisa and Jim Wolff) and Brooke Yarborough (daughter of Linda Yarborough) were the stars of the evening. With gorgeous fuchsia pink lighting accents by Holtz Lighting and towering floral arrangements by Danny Cuellar of Trinity Flowers, the scene was set for a night to remember.
As guests made their way down the clubs elegantly-appointed corridor, they were greeted with the jazz music of Bernie Martini and the artful hand of Bobalu Cigars master cigar makers on the patio. As they ascended the blossom-bedecked staircase, party goers were met with over-the-top décor—flower-draped ice sculptures, an endless row of white sofas, additional jazz music by The Lucky Strikes of Austin, as well as a color portrait of the night’s three honorees.
THE VIBE: The dinner buffet was a sight to behold, with ice sculptures depicting a stunning horse head and a Texas longhorn, each of which held scoops upon scoops of ice cream along with macaroon trees. To kick off the night’s festivities, a wonderful fireworks show lit up the night sky over the country club’s south lawn. Following the fireworks, the ball room came to life to the music of The SoulSations from Memphis. The party lasted well into the night ending with buses carrying the debs and their friends to the Alamo for a final group celebratory photo.
