Technicolor Mexican Wedding
Sometimes we all need a little burst of color in our lives. While green is filling the pages today for St. Patrick’s, we’ll stick with fuchsias, blues, and purples, thank you! This next wedding has just that, and in the lushest of surroundings: Cuernavaca, Mexico. For me, at least, no amount of decorations can replace the splendid background nature provides; you only have to look at the gorgeous knotted tree here to recognize the beauty. The sweet-as-pie Ala of Love Ala Photography sent this wedding our way, so don’t forget to see all images in the gallery!
morelos-mexico-weddingWe were planning a destination wedding in a garden at an absolutely stunning centuries-old Hacienda in Mexico, so we felt that was already a great theme to build upon. We wanted the details to look pretty,buy a new dress UK, but compliment and highlight the natural beauty of the venue. Basically we wanted to throw an amazing garden party in a beautiful environment where everyone still felt totally comfortable relaxing and having a great time – which they did!
morelos-mexico-weddingWe had been living in Mexico City and found it to be difficult planning in the US – and even settling upon a city, since we had met and lived in New York, and are from Los Angeles and Seattle. Anna had attended an amazing wedding in Mexico, and the possibilities associated with a Mexican fiesta started growing on us. A little encouragement from our Mexican and Mexico-based friends led us to start scouting mexico venues, and we focused on Cuernavaca since it was close to Mexico City but has an even nicer climate and has many beautiful gardens and wedding venues. The Hacienda de Cortes completely amazed us on our first visit, we could totally envision where we would have the ceremony and an amazing party. We pretty much knew it was the place.
