San Miguel de Allende is the most amazing wedding destination right in our backyard. Of course, Americans love tying the knot in Mexico. Cabo, Cancun, Playa Del Carmen, and Tulum all come to mind. Each one has its merits. But unlike these more well known locals, San Miguel has a uniqueness all it’s own. One of my favorite San Miguel wedding planners is Guadalupe Alvarez. She owns Penzi Weddings, well known for spectacular events around the area. I talked to Guadalupe about her work, San Miguel, and what makes this a special place for weddings.
“San Miguel is special because of its people.” says Guadalupe. “They are so warm and loving. Everyone here wants you to be happy and know that you are special. We want to share our traditions, passion for fun, love of food, and beauty”.
They meet in Colombia during a wedding in March, Armando was doing a Masters in Boston and he was invited to come to Colombia by the bride´s cousin. It was love at first sight. They met again in Mexico in November and they tried to spend every moment together. Even though their relationship was long-distance, they tried to see each other every month.
