Guadalupe Alvarez on Fang Magazine: 50 gurus that change the history of Guanajuato
Get this: Erik + Victoria met in the recording studio on the first day she moved to New York City! As their relationship blossomed, these two traveled a LOT as touring musicians. They happened upon the beautiful city of San Miguel De Allende just months before Erik proposed, a colonial era mountain town in Central Mexico with a thriving arts community, known as “The Heart of Mexico” — and it’s easy to imagine why E + V fell in love with the town! Upon getting engaged, these two knew exactly where they were headed and could barely contain their excitement at the opportunity to share one of their favorite destinations with their closest friends!
Luckily for us, Mexico, with its radiant warmth, magic and vibrancy really lends itself to the kind of celebration we were looking for! The sacredness of the ceremony and the fun of the reception were equally important to us and we were definitely not into our wedding being all about one or the other. We aimed to seamlessly blend the more spiritual elements of the event with the fun of a killer party, all while maintaining a sense of intimacy. As far as inspiration, we went for secret enchanted garden meets the most lavish house party you’ve ever attended… with amazing music throughout and a surprise sunset Mexican parade on top! We were also sure to pick locations that were naturally beautiful even before all the decorations, flowers, etc., so we rented two super dreamy private homes in town, Casa Tortugas for the ceremony and Casa Hyder for the reception. Both houses seriously delivered.
