This marvelous wedding took place in Desierto de los Leones, a forest near Mexico City. For the ceremony, we set up a long marquee where guests sat on white benches at each side of the asile. It was a sentimental moment for everyone when the bride and her parents walked the mirrored aisle —contoured by hundreds of stunning, bushy arrangements of white hydrangeas and poppies. Bride and groom met halfway and walked together up to the altar, which was created from concrete tubular structures with transversal cuts, creating an oblong void where the ceremony rituals were officiated, with both families next to the bride and groom. Around the venue, there were some simple white tables and banks where we placed beautiful arrangements of orange dahlias and tulips, and white roses.
The reception was a vibrant party that merged with the forest atmosphere of the venue, while also adding intergalactic elements. We placed dainty halo lights around some of the trees and we also hung elegant crystal chandeliers and foliage domes for decoration. Guests sat at long wooden tables and wicker chairs to enjoy a delicious banquet. Centerpieces consisted of tall candelabra of white candles and arrangements consisting of white dahlias and magenta and soft pink roses. On top of the dance floor we hung a big balloon symbolizing the moon, while Jupiter reflected on the DJ booth, accompanied with other balloons symbolizing other planets. The candy bar was a feast in itself, with a variety of delicacies, such as a berry shortcake, fresh fruit, dates, a caramel apple tree, and a four tiered wedding cake.
