No 607: Real Wedding: Erica and Abrahm

Sunday, July 25, 2010

This gorgeous Mexican wedding is what every destination event should aspire to be-equal parts culture and personal style. Erica and Abrahm's stunning event is a testament to how beautiful a wedding can look when you put your faith in others-in this case, Guadalupe Alvarez of Pensi Weddings, who designed the flowers, decor and even wrangled Benito the Burro!

The couple was married on Valentine's Day in the mountain town of San Miguel De Allende, Mexico at a colonial villa called Casa Chorro. They chose a palate of orange and gray, adding succulents, wood and French linen for an event that felt thoughtful but unfussy. Chewing the Cud's Mexican-inspired stationery was simply beautiful, and Grace Edmands' calligraphy gave the casual illustrations an elegant kick. Erica wore Monique Lhuillier's classic Monet gown, and dyed her Kate Spade shoes to match the fabulous orange that turned up in stationery, her succulent-based bouquet, floral arrangements and everything else! It's no surprise this bride was so beautifully outfitted; she's one half of The 2 Bandits! The groom wore a Viktor & Rolf suit and classic Ferragamo shoes, in keeping with his fashion-forward bride.

After the couple's lovely ceremony, they all walked through the streets dancing to mariachi music and taking shots of tequila-a sure sign this would be a party to remember (or forget!). Not surprisingly, the party lasted until dawn, although there were pauses to watch a celebratory fireworks display or much down a few tacos. Joining them in San Miguel De Allende were Stephanie and her husband Isaac of Stephanie Williams Photography-what a fabulous way to spend Valentine's Day!

Dear readers, do you adore the Neo-Traditionalist like I do? Well today is her wedding day, so stop by her incredible blog and leave her a little love! Congratulations, Katie!
