Olivia and Gerardo said “I do” in Mexico, a destination wedding in Rosarito, to be exact.  With deep colors of purple, red and some white, the duo set off for a magical trip and a big celebration.

They selected the El Descanso Mision at their ceremony location – a beautiful church rich in history and a stunning backdrop.

A traditional mass was held to seal the deal.

Olivia’s maids wore long purple bridesmaid dresses appropriate for the church ceremony and certainly fun for the reception!

 When asked about their most memorable moments of the day; Olivia said, When I walked down the aisle and experienced crazy tunnel vision like in the movies!” While Gerardo said, “When my friend Jorge surprised us with his wedding gift, he sang ‘Hermoso Carino’ a classic mariachi song.”

Dinner was set on the pool deck overlooking the ocean and lit with lots of purple and red lighting.
