About This Wedding
We ventured down to the most beautiful and romantic town of San Miguel de Allende in Mexico for Olivia and Victor's wedding. The architecture, the history, the people, the food - everything about this place makes us want to go back again and again. A few days leading up to the big wedding soire, these two had awesome activities planned from venturing out of town to explore a historical church and dine at a gourmet restaurant in the countryside to swimming in hot springs and going to a bull fight. The wedding itself took place at a gorgeous private ranch right outside of town. Horse and carriage brought the bride and her father to the ceremony which took place in a romantic, shady grove on one part of the ranch. The bride and her new husband then hoped back in the carriage for a private ride over to the reception location. As we all walked from the ceremony to reception listening to the mariachis, people were given little porcelain cups on a ribbon with tequila. The reception was under a grand white tent. One of my favorite things was the colors! Bright orange roses and lovely green succulents made up the bouquets and table displays. As the day turned into night, paper masks and noise makers were floating around the crowd and men walking on stilts were a sight to see. When every reception we have been to typically ends and the bride and groom depart, this party most certainly did not end! The party was moved from the tent to this gorgeous Spanish colonial style carriage house for a dance party complete with an awesome slideshow of old photos and viewed with 3D glasses. It was, at the minimum, a most outstanding display of beauty, culture, and love.
