Fue una celebración llena de emociones, gracias, Paulina y Joshua, por su confianza en captarla. ¡Muchas felicidades!


Elegant destination wedding in Oaxaca, Mexico. Civil ceremony and cocktail in Casa Oaxaca Restaurant. The bride getting ready in la Casona de la Tita Hotel and the groom in the Quinta Real Hotel. The ceremony in Santo Domingo Chruch, and the reception in the Ethnobotanical Garden, with the after-party at La Medida Bar. It was a celebration full of emotion, thank you, Paulina and Joshua, for entrusting me to capture it. Congratulations!


Jaw-dropping gorgeous destination wedding full of details, from the flowerpots to the bouquet. 

But it started the night before with the civil ceremony and cocktail at one of Latin America's most awarded restaurants, Casa Oaxaca. With its cuisine cooked to order on site from the freshest ingredients, and its open-air terrace with pottery and thatch roof all-Oaxacan, it is casual elegance at its finest. 

The ceremony was in one of Latin America's most beautiful churches, Santo Domingo de Guzmán, with its gold-plated facades full of saints, angels and the Virgin Mary.

Sumptious fresh fruit, artesanal bread and cheese to start off the reception, with mellow live covers of pop favorites by Light Lobby. With long beads of crystal catching the changing light above, candles melting the night away, and tall rows of cacti to the north and the 16th Century ex-convent stone walls to the west and south, the open-air ethnobotanical garden is a dreamscape venue. 

The bride and groom were passionate all day, starting with their first encounter in the garden, the caressing of each other's hands as they put on their rings for the first time during the ceremony, the release of joy upon leaving the church, the pumped-up excitement dramatically entering the reception in between sparklers, holding tight during the first dance, and fist pumping as the party got wild with enthusiastically supportive friends and family from around Mexico and the United States. 

An incredible wedding from beginning to end.
