The Knot: A Summer Fiesta Destination Wedding at Casa Hyder in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico
Louisa Oberman Harwood (30 and a marketing coordinator) and Joseph Matthew Harwood (30 and self-employed) had a vision for their wedding: a colorful, light celebration full of dancing in a beautiful destination. As soon as one of their friends mentioned Casa Hyder in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, a lightbulb went off—that this was the right place to say “I do.” Wanting their celebration to be bright and cheery, Louisa and Joseph chose to decorate Casa Hyder in all different shades of pink, from their save-the-dates to the decor. Wedding planner Penzi created an atmosphere full of pink flowers and a tented backyard reception illuminated by elegant chandeliers and star lanterns. The highlight? Louisa and Joseph’s cocktail hour was anything but ordinary. They decided to have a parade in the streets of San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, with traditional mojigangas (giant, newlywed-lookalike papier-mache dolls), a mariachi band and a tequila donkey.
