Antigua Guatemala Wedding at San Jose el Viejo

Antigua Guatemala Wedding at San Jose el Viejo

From the bride, Kamille: I knew that I wanted to have our wedding in San Jose el Viejo when Chris and I first drove by the ruins together. An event was going in there and it was so beautiful. After we got engaged we went for a site visit to reserve it. Addy’s Florales was there doing an event that day. We met Beatriz, the florist and decided to go with them after seeing their designs and creativity within the ruins. I wanted really simple and elegant colors to not distract from the beauty of the ruins. I chose cream and gold with accents of purple.  Beatriz from Addy’s Florales and Maya from hotel Antigua were both awesome with seeing the vision of simple elegance. One of my favorite moments was my dad’s speech followed by our dance. Chris and I also both loved that Ignacio from Buena Vista Social Club was able to play. We love his music and have enjoyed getting to know him and hear stories about Cuba and his past. He is so talented and we were really blessed to have him share in our day. I loved riding to the ceremony in Tuk tuks. I think the bridesmaids loved it as well. Our first dance was ‘You are the Best Thing’ by Ray Lamontagne. My dad’s dance was ‘There goes my Life’ Kenny Chesney. Mom/groom first dance song was ‘ My Wish’ by Rascal Flatts. Our exit sparkles song was ‘Hey Ho’ Lumineers.
