Monica and Jared - Quinta Laura

Monica and Jared said their "I do's" mid-December at Quinta Laura (formerly Casa Carol Ann). They requested a palette of greens, pinks and silver with a squeeze of lime! Congratulations to this wonderful couple! And a huge thank you to Elizabeth Lloyd for sharing the lovely photos!

Guests arrived to the front courtyard and were greeted with self-serve fresh fruit waters and the amazing scent of rose petals floating in the fountain!

As ceremony was about to begin, guests were ushered to the lower terrace where the bride and groom exchanged vows beneath a beautiful canopy of flowing fabrics and fresh flowers.

Immediately following the ceremony, the bride and groom escaped to the street for some really fun photos!

Meanwhile, back at the villa, guests enjoyed cocktails and appetizers poolside while enjoying the live music of a Latin trio! Throughout the cocktail area, silver-painted words that the couple had chosen to describe themselves were used as decor alongside floral arrangements and limes.

During cocktail hour, the courtyard area was converted (oh-so-quickly!) into a romantic and amazing dinner space! Guests mingling on the terrace below they had no idea that they would soon return to the pre-ceremony area for dinner!

And as a special surprise, we had a live artist on site painting the dinner reception while it was happening! Later on, we gifted the painting to the couple as a memory of their wedding reception!

Wedding cake and a beautiful dessert display were set up back on the lower terrace where guests mingled and danced the night away!

A fun favor was displayed for guests to take home with them - hand-made satchels held the recipe for a traditional margarita as well as the mixins' including a mini salt-shaker, lime squeezer and individual tequila shot!

Congratulations Monica and Jared - we spent a really lovely evening with you and wish you the best for the future!
