On 6/1/2015 the day before my wedding it had rained the whole entire day in PDC. Like the whole day. It was set at 100% chance to rain on my wedding day too. And I'm not talking your typical on and off tropical rains. I was sick physically sick over it. The guys were in the middle of the ocean on a deep sea fishing boat and the storms got pretty bad. As a mom I was worrying for my son on the boat. Later that day there were all these last minute to dos. Then rehearsal dinner at Aldea Corazon that I spent monthd to pick out bc it is like s romantic jungle restaurant on 5th ave. the dinner was set for outside. That didn't work out we went inside:( My on site wedding coordinator wasn't the biggest help but she got the job done. At rehearsal she told me I had to have wedding inside bc of forecast, she even showed me her intended ceremony did e, which consisted of a tiny room upstairs above their restaurant area. I was in silence it all became too much, I shut down and walked quietly back to oceans edge and sat to cry. Scott came over and comforted me. I was late to dinner bc the 4 Ativans prescribed for trip anxiety ( don't judge they were .5 milligram lol) I took to calm my nerves only made me feel worse. I dropped a heavy chair on my toe and my shellac Polish literally popped off 2 of two of my toes. Lol ruined pedicure. Whatever. My friends stayed back with me and they hugged me and loved me. Upon getting to rehearsal dinner I felt hollow I felt like my vision of my day was crumbling down. I had spent so much energy time and my childhood vision was shattered. I wouldn't get to walk on the sand...Of all days why now? The Mexicsns said the rain was very unusual. But that they needed it to stop the fires in fields, said it hadn't rained since Feb.

The morning of wedding I didn't want to get out of bed I was so let down. I called my reiki healer and she put things into place for me. Examples rain is renewal a cleansing a fresh start, that God was using the rain to cleanse and renew. And for Scott and I to be the sunshine on that day. Tears, she made me see things with a new light. I decided no checking the forecast no matter what. Was going to let it ride.And upon dropping off last of supplies on wedding day i asked the WC to set up outside. She was really reluctant but she agreed. My friends and son joined hands and said a prayer and ask that God would provide us with whatever we needed on our wedding day, rain shine or anything else. I told God I trusted his plan. I was tempted once to check the forecast bc literally the sky was bleak allllll day. But I didnt. I remembered my promise of faith for provision. Fast forward My AMAZING MUA Zoe Elizabeth and her friend who is a hairstylist came right on time at 3 pm. They made me look exactly how I wanted to feel. Bam. Finger waves, red lips, Spanish veil Of course something had to bubble- Scotts mom no showed and she was on baby duty. In fact she insisted on being there to help and she no showed no call nothing. But she miraculously was at the wedding but we forgive and move on. Not so easy to get ready with a 2 year old but My friends and cousin made it work. They took on her job and many others so I could get ready. After I was done I set out money for tips here's what I have. 100 DJ

40 MUA- stylist, 60 chef, 15 each server and bartender they were the trur Heros they worked so hard!! Awesome staff, 100 to photographer, 200 WC (regret that lol)

And I think that's about it. Ok so 6:40 jumped in cab, wedding venue was about 4 blocks. The clouds are so heavy the sky was grey there was a mist. My wedding was 20 minutes away and it was going to pour! .... Tbc

    • Recent studies indicate that organizations, both large and small, either already have an HRO relationship and plan to expand it, or are considering one in the coming year. The survey, conducted by HfS Research and the London School of Economics, finds that 31% of business already outsource human resources san antonio and are looking to increase outsourced services over the next year. What is the driver for these businesses to outsource human resources? It is no secret that in lean economic times, business owners are pressed to identify expenses within an organization that can be reduced or minimized. Employment overhead (payroll, taxes, workers' compensation insurance, employee benefits, governmental compliance, and other employee-related cost centers) typically comprise the single highest area of expense within a company. More than rent, or facilities operations, or equipment, or compliance, human resources administration and expenses weigh heaviest on the business's bottom line. Streamlined HR Systems HRO firms offer streamlined human resource systems to their clients, significantly minimizing management's time in overseeing daily administrative tasks. Non-productive "paper pushing" can be outsourced to the HR firm, enabling key staff to focus on their core competencies. Processes such as payroll processing, tax filing and compliance, Unemployment Claims administration, workers' compensation management, and employee benefits enrollment and management can all easily and efficiently be outsourced. Cost effective insurance products. Reducing employment risks Government compliance and regulations continue to grow in complexity and scale. From wage and hour issues, to discrimination restrictions, to protected classes of employees and new disability guidelines, employers often walk through a minefield of risk. Without dedicated human resources personnel or legal counsel, it is likely a business will be faced with some form of an employment lawsuit in the coming years which can costs tens-of-thousands of dollars. With close to 100,000 employment claims filed in 2010 (the highest on record!), employers recognize the risk and are turning to Human Resource Outsourcing firms to assist them in managing these risks. Human Resources Outsourcing may not be the solution for every employment need. However, for most employers with less than 200 employees looking to reduce employment expenses and overhead, outsourcing human resources may be exactly what their organization needs. As the economy continues to improve and stabilize, the time will soon come that employers will be refocusing on growth and profitability. It may also entail rehiring staff, restructuring the organization, or simply concentrating on areas that have been left on the side. Certainly, proper employment administration and oversight will be priorities to get back on their feet. However, with the demands of rebuilding, many employers may be unable to spend the necessary time focusing on their staff. Read about one organization that found a different way - through Human Resources Outsourcing. Since joining the San Antonio Human Resources Outsourcing firm, he feels that the day-to-day protection he experiences in the area of employment exposures is immeasurable. Our HRO vendor has become our 'go-to resource.' Without this type of relationship we end up making our own decisions, without proper knowledge of the law, and will ultimately You think you can use common sense, but common sense and the law rarely match! The Director says the benefits of the outsourcing relationship were immediately realized, as the new systems and processes were implemented and functioning within 30-60 days.  
    • As of late 2019, the Gatekeepers Museum no longer hosts wedding events.
    • So thanks to coronavirus, my husband and I have had to make alterations to our wedding. I don’t think I have to put this in, but this isn’t a joke and need we thoughts on this.   We’re planning on having our full, entire wedding inside this bubble (I’m inside it for scale). This is to get complete isolation from the virus and to prevent it from spreading to either of us, or if we have the virus somehow, spreading it to others. Both of will get inside it for the whole day (or at least that’s the plan). We are ok with making small to moderate changes from a typical wedding if it means isolating inside a bubble, but any big changes would mean we probably won’t use the bubble then. Are there any parts in the wedding that would be difficult or downright impossible to do inside this bubble? What are your thoughts on this idea, and what would need to be changed from a traditional wedding?  
    • Sadly no .. its been a year and a half since our wedding and till this day we cannot get a hold of him.  We had a few people reach out to us and the same thing happened to them about a month or 2 after us.
