 Embrace the Fiesta

Romance, passion, utter luxury , and just a touch of tradition and history . All of this and more comes to mind when I think of a Spanish themed wedding. 

Is there any culture that is as romantic as the Spanish culture? From the intimate and poetic music, to the rich food with just a hint of spice, to the traditions that have been passed down from generation to generation, the Latin culture just embodies pure and utter romance. 

Why not draw in the romance of the latin culture by throwing a Spanish-themed wedding fiesta? When I think of a Spanish wedding, I imagine lots of feminine and delicate lace accents, a hacienda-style wedding venue with old world charm and elegance, and guests fanning themselves with fans while sipping sangria. Perfect for the bride who is romantic at heart!

Exchange vows under an arch adorned with draped fabrics and clusters of candles, creating a romantic and ethereal backdrop.
