There are just some weddings that are so beautifully simple and lovely, that leave a warm fuzzy feeling in your heart because you know the bride and groom, along with their families and friends, are just amazing human beings and you know that they deserve each other. Sara & Curran’s wedding at Convento de Capuchinas in Antigua, Guatemala was one of those weddings.
Sara & Curran’s wedding was the epitome of simple elegance, all focused on the love between the bride and groom. Sara’s walking down the aisle to Into my Arms by Nick Cave gave us goosebumps and almost brought us to tears. Officiated by their good friend, you could tell that the ceremony was written specifically by and for the couple, with readings and beautiful stories that showed an intimate familiarity with all who were in attendance. Both families participated in the ceremony with laughter and happy tears. Sealed with a first kiss, the wedding celebration then moved to the courtyard, accompanied by the famous Guatemalan marimba.
As the night wore on, we could tell that there was an energy on the guests that was waiting to be released. The bride and groom had warned us ahead of time to be “ready to party” as they knew that their guests wouldn’t waste a second trying to get on the dance floor. The dancing got kicking as early as the cocktail hour and had it not been for the obligatory wedding speeches, I’m sure the guests would have moved right onto the dance floor.
By the time the party did start, the energy of the evening was set to last a while. With confetti and the wedding accompaniment of the Super Blood Wolf Moon, the party lasted until the doors of Capuchinas were finally forced to close. We hope you enjoy this wedding at Convento de Capuchinas.
