We arrive to our venue

By now we were running a bit late. We were supposed to be at our venue at 7 pm, but we arrived at 7:30.  Everything was already set up, and we got to have the first look.

I want to share with you the plan of the site, so you get a better idea of how everything was arranged. (On this post, besides the photos by our photographer Omar Zeron and from family, I also used some photos taken by our wedding coordinator, via MiBoda)

 PLANO REGINA BODA SARA 25 MESAS

Acceso Al Recinto: Entrance

Novios: Sweetheart table

Area de Baile: Dance floor / Ceremony Space

And in the center is the fountain, which is typical of colonial buildings such as this.  The yellow squares are columns.

Upon entering, our guests would walk through an aisle with candles on both sides.

Then they would see the cocktail table. There they were offered either colored martinis, mojitos or strawberry water (which my coordinator chose so it would match our wedding colors, she’s great!) (On the right you can see the stairs we used later to make our grand entrance.)

Then came the actual party setting. If you remember, we chose to have striped linens alternating with plain navy linens. We also had candles hanging from the ceiling and in the columns.  At this point the lights from the upper part of the building were still on, but when the party started they turned them off, so the lighting was pretty much all candle light.

The fountain looked AMAZING! The candles really add a nice touch. On the fountain alone we had 150 candles.

Our sweetheart table was huge, which make it look great. It was decorated with coral and white flowers, wine bottles and of course, some extra candles. On the back of our table we had a crystal curtain which reflected light beautifully.

Our place settings were beautiful as well. Packed with crystals – it’s good to be the bride and groom!

On the last photo you can take a peek at our cakes, more photos to come on a later post!

I loved how everything came together. The place is big, so it didn’t looked crowded or saturated, which at some point I feared. I believe it is really hard to photograph candle light, but these pics are pretty close to what we experienced.

Next, we take some more portraits…
