On Saturday, September 19th, Tlaquepaque hosted two weddings in our village. It appears that the monsoon is still here as we received a late afternoon shower. The weather did not dampen the spirits of the bridal couples.
La Donna Warns and Anthony Gabrielson held their lovely wedding ceremony in the Tlaquepaque Chapel. La Donna looked amazing and was adorned by beautiful flowers provided by Events by Showstoppers . Katrina Wallace and Andrew Mejia of Sedona Bride captured the wedding photos. Their intimate wedding reception was held at Cucina Rustina.
On Saturday evening Los Abrigados Resort catered the dinner for Kristin and Brandon. They did a great job with the set up and service of the reception in our indoor ballroom, La Sala de los Milagros. Guests enjoyed the wedding and shared in the love and joy of Kristin and Brandon.
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.
