When you work at SMP, there’s never a dull moment. Exhibit A: this crazy gorgeous Mexico wedding that’s layers upon layers of wedding fantasy brought to life. With two stunning gowns that’ll Rock. Your. World. plus all the pretty snapped up by Orange Turtle Photography, this day is officially one to love. Ready, set…swoon!
From Orange Turtle Photography… The wedding took place at the historical downtown of Oaxaca, Mexico. The bride, Stefie, grew up in Oaxaca and met the love of her life in Colorado. For their wedding, Stefie decided to get married in her gorgeous hometown. Their wedding took place at the historical church Santo Domingo de Juzman. The church is decorated with elaborate golden architectural details which would literally took your breath away. Immediately after the wedding, they were greeted by the traditional Oaxacan wedding parade completed with two huge puppets, fireworks and dancers! It was amazing!
They hosted their rehearsal dinner at the restaurant just across the street from the church on the rooftop. The lights from the street, the clear night sky and the historical surrounding make it pure magic. I’ve included a few images from their rehearsal dinner.
The wedding reception took place at a private estate (well, backyard!) that belongs to her aunt and uncle. It has a lush tropical garden where they set up a huge tent that seated over 400 guests. It was absolutely amazing! The guests partied until 3am in the morning, where a mariachi band escorted the exit of bridal party!!
The day after the wedding, we did a mini day-after session outside of another historic church of Cuilapan de Guerrero, which from far away, looks like a castle!
