Destination Wedding at Hacienda Siesta Alegre
If you want a dreamlike rustic wedding in Puerto Rico, the best location is an hacienda. There are many spectacular venues in Puerto Rico, but if I had to pick a favorite, Hacienda Siesta Alegre is the one without a doubt. Imagine my excitement when Xiomara & Luis contacted me with their plans for a destination wedding at my favorite venue! The best part? I had SO much fun getting to know X&L while we exchanged e-mails, met for coffee and later capturing the day of their wedding. After photographing the bride getting ready, Xiomara and Luis exchanged vows outdoors under a flamboyan (Royal Poinciana) tree. We then shared a stroll around the beautiful hacienda during sunset for their newlywed photos. From their first dance (which was a very original mix that included everything from latin music to hiphop) to the very last song, Xiomara & Luis never stopped smiling, laughing and genuinely enjoying every second. I feel blessed to have created everlasting memories for this amazing Colombian couple who felt as longtime friends rather than clients I had just met. Thank you X&L, I wish you many more years of happiness!
P.S. Those tres leches cupcakes were delicious!
