Friday, September 18, 2009, Tlaquepaque hosted the wedding of Carmen Ruiz and Steven Cano. You couldn’t have asked for a more pleasant evening. The weather was perfect and so was the wonderful wedding. Carmen looked radiant and glowed with happiness.
The intimate courtyard wedding was performed by Reverend Giovanni who came up from the Valley. The ceremony took place under the lights on the Patio de las Campanas. Chad Trapeur, All American DJ , played lovely music during the ceremony in front of Carmen and Steven’s friends and family.
Following the ceremony, guests were taken to the Calle Independencia for the wedding reception. There were 14 tables set up for the guests by Los Abrigados Resort and Spa . They did a great job with the set up and provided a variety of choices for dinner. Fun cup cakes were set up for dessert replacing the traditional wedding cake. Photographs were captured by Memories by Karen.
Following dinner, fun was had by one and all – dancing to music provided by Chad Trapeur – All American DJ. The evening was perfect and the stars were shining on this happy bridal couple. Thank you for choosing Tlaquepaque for your dream wedding.
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.
