Leandra & Fabio

This destination wedding in Cartagena had an emotional ceremony at the San Pedro Claver Church and the reception at the Adolfo Mejia Theater.


Leandra and Fabio chose Cartagena de Indias for their destination wedding in Colombia. They both were born in United States but groom's parents are colombians, for this reason they crossed bounds to celebrate their marriage with a catholic ceremony at the San Pedro Claver Church officiated in English as there was a bilingual priest available.
The bride was stunning walking to the altar with her father, a mermaid-shaped dress stood out her figure, she was so elegant and chic. Know the details at highlight your curves with a mermaid wedding dress.

After the ceremony, the guests moved to the Adolfo Mejia Theater where the reception would be, the bride and groom made their triumphal entrance and the spectators were really surprised.

The decor was more than charming, with Hortensias and white Roses on glass chandeliers were created gorgeous centerpieces. For the bride and groom, a lovely special table was kept with a raised rose path that turned out to be a very original frame to photographs.

A dance floor couldn't be missed, with chess style warmly received all the guests for the party and crazy hour by Colombian folk groups that represented the cumbia and mapale.

The bride and groom's adventure in Cartagena didn't begin with their wedding, they arrived a week before with planned activities. The groom, a Football lover, organized a party with his college friends at a synthetic field on a rooftop in fron San Felipe Castle, all of them were wearing t-shirts from the Colombian official Football team and they had an amazing night.

The party started the night before the wedding with a very particular dinner, the main dish was a "Lechona", typical dish in Colombia from Tolima, mainly composed of pork. Then a walk in chiva rumbera to finalize at a discotheque of the Historic Center. After the wedding they enjoyed a relaxing day in the Rosario Islands to relax, a perfect end for this great celebration.
