Real Weddings: A Festive Wedding in Guadalajara | Nick + Adrienne

San Miguel de Allende Guadalajara Mexico Wedding Parade Tequilla

Christmas is just days away, are you ready? I am not. In fact, I'm so not in the zone, because my daughter has been suffering some sort of virus that has caused her a rash, and so many other symptoms. I hate it when babies are sick (well, she's 6 but still my baby) and you don't know how to take it all away. It's hard and draining. And just before Christmas, too. I'm really hoping she'll bounce back by tomorrow. Fingers crossed!

So, I want to feel festive and cheerful, and this wedding, set in Guadalajara, certainly comes with some fantastic vibes to brighten up the mood! It won a Belief Awards nod in the Destination Wedding category! The imagery really draws us in, thanks to the photography work of Blest Studios.  There's beautiful scenery, colorful textiles, and this gorgeous couple whom dazzle the camera, and each other. 

Here's a note about how Adrienne and Nick came to wed in Mexico:
Adrienne’s father is from Guadalajara. It meant a lot to have their wedding in Mexico and have her family there. Adrienne fell in love with San Miguel de Allende the first time she visited with her family years ago. After a lot of searching in the US, once the couple landed on Mexico it was quickly decided that they would get married there.

I certainly can see why they tied the knot here! Get ready to feast your eyes on Adrienne & Nick's Festive Wedding in Guadalajara, as photographed by Blest Studios:

This looked like a fun wedding to attend! And what a gorgeous town San Miguel de Allende is! I LOVE the couple's wedding parade through the city streets, with the giant puppets, that is something else! And a tequila carrying burro! 

A cool note about the tiles on the place setting, from the wedding planner:
Adrienne and Nick asked us to make some special “talavera” tiles to put over each plate. The tiles had special designs. The idea was amazing, original, Mexican, elegant, beautiful. 

That's a great way to make a personal touch, and guests can save those favors to remember this couple's special day!

I love Adrienn's choice of gown, it's stunning on her figure, and perfect for a destination wedding. They certainly picked the perfect spot for them to exchange their vows, and celebrate with a grand party!
