On Wednesday, August 12, 2009 Andrea Rodriguez and Sean Driscoll got married in the Tlaquepaque Chapel. At first we were worried about the weather but the rain held off until well after the ceremony had finished. The evening was comfortable and cool and so was our bride.
The intimate wedding of Sean and Andrea was witnessed by a small group of friends and family members while Margaret VanDamme performed the ceremony. Bob Coates of Bob Coates Photography captured their romantic memories with his beautiful photographs.
The wedding couple and their guests had their wedding reception at Cucina Rustica following the chapel wedding. We would like to send heartfelt congratulations to Andie and Sean Driscoll.
There’s nothing quite like falling head over heels in love. Sometimes that love is so strong you just want to run off and get married immediately. Eloping can be crazy and romantic, but there’s still some planning that needs to happen. Yes, it’s true! If you ever considered a destination for your elopement, consider Tlaquepaque’s Chapel in Sedona, Arizona.
There is no right or wrong when it comes to weddings from ceremonies to receptions more and more brides and grooms are personalizing their weddings. Today’s couples are mixing old with the new for ways to make their wedding stand out from the rest. Make your wedding day as special and unforgettable as you both are and put your imagination to good use. Marriage is about two unique individuals coming together as one, so don’t be afraid to step out of the box.
Tlaquepaque has had great brides and grooms with amazing ideas, from dessert bars to candy stations. Ideas range from placing a romantic seating area for the bride and groom to relax and enjoy their evening and guests. You can take it a step further and incorporate sofas and coffee tables to break up a traditional wedding reception set up.
Another great idea so as to not keep your guests waiting taking photos is a First Look. About 70% of couples opt to have a first look before their ceremony. This is where they can capture that special moment and take a minute to breathe and shake off some of that anxiety that has been brewing all day. Some of our photographers have captured some great moments.
We hope you enjoy these ideas and photos.
