THE SCENE: San Antonio’s historic Argyle Club provided a most perfect setting for a celebration in honor of three beauties who happen to share the same first name. Tres Carolinas brought together family and friends to fête German Club debs Caroline Cochran, Caroline Miller and Caroline Satel. Blending the fabulous Mexican flair of San Miguel de Allende with San Antonio’s beloved cultural heritage, the stage was set for a fiesta fit for the three Carolines.
THE VIBE: Upon arrival, mariachi music filled the air as guests greeted the honorees and their gracious parents in a traditional receiving line before making their way to the triangular bar, each side set for one individual Carolina. Featured over the bar were three Frida Kahlo-esque portraits of each debutante by Morgan Goodwin. A trio of specialty drinks from which guests could choose was served throughout the night. Live entertainment by San Antonio-based band Intensity and tunes by DJ 5150 Productions kept revelers dancing late into the night.
The décor for the evening, masterfully executed by event planner Katherine Lopez, the owner and creative director of Sweet August Events, brought guests together on equipale chairs surrounded by beautiful Mexico-inspired florals, authentic Otomi runners and plants indigenous to the region surrounding San Miguel de Allende. As guests enjoyed various culinary creations provided by The Argyle, they were treated to a parade featuring the debs holding Mojigangas. A long-standing Mexican tradition in San Miguel during weddings, birthdays, anniversaries or any other worthy celebration, the life-size papier-mâché puppets were created in their own likenesses as an interactive celebration of these beautiful Tres Carolinas. Every detail of the creative and fabulous fiesta contributed to a memorable evening the guests would not soon forget.
