A Mid Winter Night's Dream Wedding in Mexico: Mia + Guillermo


Mia is from Sydney, Guillermo is from San Francisco and the two of them met in the romantic city of Paris. After living in New York for two years, they now call Sydney, Australia home. Despite all of the beautiful places the've lived + been, they decided to get married at Casa Tortugas in the town of San Miguel de Allende in Mexico. They wanted a dream like wedding and San Miguel delivered big. Not only is their stylish day beautifully enviable, but we thought it'd be a perfect way to celebrate Cinco de Mayo, too!

Mia tells us more, The main inspiration was of course Mexico and the very special town of San Miguel De Allende. San Miguel is such an amazing place, the old world architecture, the local food, the art and the warm people. You just want to grab it and give it a big giant hug and a kiss! Our wedding was always going to be a Mexican affair. Guillermo has a Mexican background, (he even proposed on the Sydney Opera House steps at 7am with a mariachi band) So we knew we had to follow the Mexican theme we had going on and what better way than a wedding in the most enchanting town the stunning San Miguel de Allende in the middle of Mexico, 3 hours drive from Mexico City to be exact!

Thanks so much to Alicia Vilar for the gorgeous planning + design and to Pierce Lifetsyle Photography for the picture-perfect photography! And most of all, big congrats to Mia + Guillermo on a magical day!

We're seriously obsessed with Mia's wedding day look! She wore an all lace dress from The Wedding Boutique in Sydney, Australia paired with a floral hairpiece organized by San Miguel Weddings.

And loving her bridesmaids' looks too! Their mismatched black dresses + bright flower crowns were just right.

They were married in the beautiful Church of San Francisco in the town center. So stunning...

And the excited the church with a processional to remember! There was a donkey, giant puppets, a mariachi band + parade!

The reception had a magical, dream-like feel reminiscent of an intimate party in a secret garden.
