Our desire is for Water To Wine Hospitality to model Jesus by serving people with excellence and ministering to their physical needs as well as their eternal needs. An event, whether a wedding, a corporate party, a baby shower or a non-profit fundraiser, can be so much more than a one-time interaction. It can be a space where people feel treasured, celebrated & encouraged in whatever walk of life they are. We thank the Lord each day that we get to help our clients create this type of space for their people to gather. After many years of planning, problem-solving and day-saving, we know how important it is to find the right team to not only handle the tough moments, but to genuinely connect with you and your family to make this the smoothest, most wonderful day ever! We are delighted to have the opportunity to do that for you.
Hi there friends, I’m Dempsey Warren. I am a to-do list lovin’ leader who is passionate about Jesus & the way He gathered and celebrated people. Even as a 7-year old, I had a deep desire to bring people together to celebrate and the drive to make it happen (shout out to my mom for letting her 7-year old plan Christmas). Since then, those innate desires have been refined through receiving my B.B.A. in Sports, Event, and Tourism Management, my M.B.A. in Marketing & Management and valuable experience in the wedding, corporate event & non-profit industries.
When I’m not busy working on creating spaces of celebration for my clients, you can catch me creating spaces of celebration in my own home. Whether that is Friends-Giving with 80 of my “closest” friends or my husband and me sitting down with our families, I truly believe that life is best lived around the table.
Hi there, I’m Whitney Warren! I love the simple joys found in the day to day. From the perfect ratio Arnold Palmer, to rainbow beaded bracelets, to my recent obsession with the color pink (maybe because I am surrounded by boys in my house?), each day brings something to enjoy. You can find me on the dance floor at any event but currently in the seasons of getting my groove on in the kitchen before dinnertime with my two sons. My husband balances me out and has given me a life I used to pray for. The story of him trying to meet me is one for the books. God’s grace is so sweet!
I grew up in DFW and left home to attend Kilgore College as a Rangerette and then to Baylor University. Now I call San Antonio home. My background in helping build a retail brand and fostering relationships with influencers and non-profits has brought many lessons but has led me to a strong belief that most things can be remedied with kindness and quick thinking. I’m your girl for a good laugh and gentle reminders to enjoy the season. I hope to serve you in a way where you feel confident in your upcoming event and have a peace of mind throughout. No question/request is off limits and I will always be your ally in the process. Give me all your crazy ideas and let’s make some magic!
Hey hey! My name is Jasmine Jacob. I am a 6th grade math teacher in Dallas, TX as my full-time gig but event planning has always held a special place in my heart. While attending the University of Texas at San Antonio, I had the opportunity to come alongside Dempsey as her right-hand woman and have never looked back! Teaching & event planning both push me closer to my favorite things... Jesus and Iced Vanilla Lattes (with soy)!
I would call myself an Introverted- Extrovert as I love being around people, talking about life, and celebrating, however I get recharged by a good ole "Jasmine Day" to myself! I don't know how you feel about enneagrams, but I am probably the most “2” person you've met. I love a good to-do list coupled with a pretty planner and colorful pens! Yes, I can be a go-getter and no, I am not afraid to take charge, but where I truly thrive is by coming alongside my people and helping the vision come true. I will be so honored to have a chance to do that for YOU!
Jesus sees all people, loves all people, and is the perfect example of how to pursue and serve them. I try to model that whether it's in my classroom or at a large event. When people are near, I hope they leave knowing that they are loved!
Hey there friend, I’m Courtney Heiman! I joyfully hold the title of “Chaos Coordinator” in my house as my main gig is being a mom to my three kiddos! Two precious boys and a spunky girl in the middle. I can’t forget our sweet goldendoodle, Mickey (yes, we are major Disney nerds) who totally counts as a fourth child and never misses a car ride-but only if he can ride shotgun. What a delight to live a life and have a family I once prayed for as a little girl. God is SO faithful!
Event planning and coordinating was a fun, creative outlet for me while pursuing my nursing license, prior to marrying my high school sweetheart and starting our family. My now sister-in-law (a full time event planner at the time), had me on speed dial to help assist and support in corporate and sporting events as well as weddings. I’m so glad she took the time to pour into me, because God has brought me full circle, back to the world of events and I couldn’t be happier! It’s my JOY to have landed a spot on the Water to Wine Hospitality team!
I am passionate about being intentional with how I serve and love others just as Jesus so beautifully modeled for us. It’s a privilege to play a role in YOUR day and serve you well! I can’t wait!
Hey, there! I’m Alexis Blanchard, and I believe life’s moments should be celebrated and spent with the ones you love! On any given day, you can catch me with a coffee in my hand, playing with my daughter or joking around with my husband. Even more likely, we are probably chasing our “royal” corgi around the house.
As the daughter of a pilot and flight attendant, I grew up traveling with my family all around the world. I love experiencing new cultures and meeting new people. I am Texas born and graduated from Texas A&M University with a degree in Event Management and Floral Design. I fell in love with events in college and haven’t stopped since! For the past several years, I coordinated and managed events for the Houston Astros at Minute Maid Park. From weddings and galas, to concerts and conferences (and a whole lot of baseball in between), I had the opportunity of planning a wide variety of events all over the ballpark.
My family and I moved to San Antonio in 2021 and have fallen in love with the city and it’s amazing people. I love collaboration and believe there is always a solution to any challenge. I cannot wait to work with you to make your vision come to life. Let’s do it!
It is no secret that your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life! We will come alongside you and your fiancé to create an experience that you, your families and your guests will treasure forever. In John 2, the scripture on which Water To Wine Hospitality is founded, Jesus was at a wedding and they ran out of wine. He proceeded to solve the problem and turn water into wine, not just any wine, but the finest wine. The heartbeat of Water to Wine Hospitality is to serve you throughout the entire wedding process with the same attitude as
that of Christ Jesus: excellence and humility. We can’t promise we will turn water into wine, but we can promise that we will not run out of wine! We offer full-planning, partial planning and month-of packages to meet the needs of your specific wedding day.
We are firm believers that you should never miss an opportunity to celebrate! Each day is a gift from God and we have learned that tomorrow is not always guaranteed. We want to come alongside you to celebrate all of life’s occasions! Showers, holiday gatherings, milestone birthdays, anniversaries, destination occasions, and all the events in between deserve attention to charming details & quality execution. Whether an event for hundreds, or an intimate dinner party in your home, Water to Wine Hospitality will ensure your party traverses from initial concept to exceeding your expectations.
We had the pleasure of working with the Water to Wine team for 8 months leading up to our wedding. The whole process became a dream thanks to the guidance of Dempsey , Whitney, and Megan. They took the stress out of many things and made making decisions FUN. They were also great at bringing together the overall design of the event. Where the Water to Wine team really excelled was during the week and day-of the wedding. The wedding was at a private ranch with many logistics and the entire team made the event flow without a hiccup. Every guest was stunned at how perfectly planned and executed everything was. This allowed us and the entire family to truly enjoy the weekend. I cannot recommend the entire Water to Wine team enough. They will go above and beyond to give you the event of your dreams and become close friends throughout the process.
Water to Wine is beyond amazing - I have had the privilege of having Dempsey's and her team's help as I've planned not one but two weddings in the past 10 months. Two of my daughters got married within a few months of each other, and so many people asked me if that has been stressful to plan, and I always answer - no, not really, because I've had THE best support. From the many planning details to the countless day-of details and unexpected events, Dempsey made sure everything went so smoothly and truly listened to each of my daughters to make their days went just as they hoped for. She had excellent advice on which vendors to use and helped us make decisions and then ensured that all went according to plan. And somehow she does it all with joy and fun and never seems stressed - which makes everyone else feel positive as well! My second daughter to get married, was the very first wedding at my sister's new venue. There were many unknowns since the venue was under construction during some of the planning, and still she helped my daughter's vision come to life even when many decisions had to be made before the venue was complete. Dempsey is a joy to work with and has become a friend along the way - definitely one of the blessings I will always be thankful for when I look back on this wedding season for our family!

Hiring Dempsey was one of the best decisions we made for our daughter’s wedding!! She was a joy to work with and offered invaluable suggestions and recommendations for vendors we still needed. Dempsey went above and beyond to make my daughter’s special day go smoothly. She is that rare combination of someone one who is able to make things happen and keep everyone on schedule but does this in a gracious and pleasant way. Because of her, we were able to truly relax and enjoy the day, knowing without a doubt that she was taking care of every detail. - Mother of the Bride, Laurie
We worked with Whitney for our wedding and couldn’t have been more pleased! She truly made sure my vision came to life and everything ran super smooth. She went above and beyond, including an extra site meeting just to make sure everything was as I had planned. The entire team did a great job from start to finish of the planning up to the Wedding day! I wish Whitney and I lived closer, because she’d totally fit in with our friend group! Thank you again Water to Wine!!!
Where do we start? Water to Wine Hospitality and Dempsey Warren are a one-in-a-million company. My husband and I worked with Dempsey Warren selecting her month-of package and it was the BEST decision we made concerning the planning of our wedding. We even ended up whispering to each other, "What would we do without Dempsey" multiple times.
We did the bulk of our planning and I went back-and-forth about hiring a coordinator because I thought we could make it work.... I met with Dempsey and she explained her value and it was clear we would need lots of help because we didn't account for the many day-of moving parts. We originally selected Water to Wine Hospitality because of the company's values. We quickly realized they are not all talk, the fruit is the evidence! Dempsey and her team are extremely caring, flexible, HIGHLY organized and trained, kind, detail oriented, and go-getters. Our wedding day was an absolute dream come true.
Thank you Dempsey and Water to Wine Hospitably for making our wedding day better than we imagined!! You truly have a gift from God!
-Bride, Amy Smith
Dempsey Warren was truly one of the biggest reasons our wedding day was so precious!! From the weeks of planning leading up to the big day, all the way to the send off, she was there for every step of it. She diligently helped us plan even the minute details and has a way of delegating tasks on the day of. The way she kindly but boldly leads allowed us to step back and just enjoy each part of such a sweet day that began our marriage.
She has an eye for what looks beautiful and knows all the tricks to making things run smoothly, timely and exactly as we had imagined. Even the ideas we had that seemed far-off or unobtainable, she found ways to make them affordable and realistic.
- Bride, Michelle
"For the past several years, Dempsey has been the on-site coordinator for our event. She has gone above and beyond for our event making it a flawless experience for our attendees and guests. Her attention to detail, can-do attitude, and clear communication style has made our event a huge success. Dempsey is someone that we want to hold onto for years to come. Any group or organization would be blessed to have her on their team. "
