When planning their dreamy destination wedding, Sarah + Antonio looked no further than Antonio’s family Pulque farm, located just outside Mexico City! Pulque is a traditional central Mexico alcoholic drink made from the agave plant, so you can imagine how gorgeous the property was. From the massive agave plants, to the ancient brick + stone structures, everywhere you looked made it seem like you were taking a step back in time. What a stunning setting for Sarah + Antonio’s wedding fiesta! And for a change of pace, it’s fun to see a wedding from Mexico that isn’t on the beach. :)
From Sarah, We were able to introduce our friends and family to the history of this ranch and show them what life was like before the turn of the century when this was a working farm. The weekend was about spending time with our families and friends in a unique part of the world and teaching everyone about a culture that’s now a part of our family.
Thank you to Bryan N. Miller Photography for the gorgeous images + big congrats to Sarah + Antonio!
Sarah’s cowboy boots were a perfect choice for the rural surroundings. Anyone else planning on wearing boots for their big day?
Walking to our ceremony with my parents. The walk took us through the ranch and we soaked in our surroundings as we walked to the chapel.
Especially for destination weddings, hire the right professionals. We entrusted the planning and catering to a local pro and we brought our photographer with us from San Diego. We trusted them to help create the experiences and capture the moments we wanted from the day (and trip) and having them with us allowed us to enjoy the trip and not worry about the small stuff.
