Sarah & Scott

Destination Wedding in Cartagena


Sarah & Scott arrived from Canada to Cartagena de Indias to make a special and intimate destination wedding come true. Sarah wore a beautiful dress tight to her figure with a bohemian style and completed her look with a spectacular bridal bouquet full of colors, with rosy-brown roses, white roses, and eucalyptus leaves to generate a vintage style. Future brides note this bridal bouquet within the trends for this 2019.

The ceremony and wedding reception were held in an old colonial house called Casa Las Marias. This place still preserves details of many years ago calling the attention of modern guests as it manages to fully reflect the essence and tradition of the colonial era in Cartagena. For this reason, Sarah & Scott chose this house as a venue for their wedding, it’s definitely a place that tells invaluable stories.
The symbolic ceremony was held in the colonial courtyard of the house, it was a very emotional ceremony and the officiant gave a good lesson for all attendees on basic principles of Buddhism and teachings on the elements of true love, so important to apply in the new life of Sarah and Scott.

After the ceremony, all the guests joined the couple to a photographic walk through the walls of the Historical Center, while behind the scenes, the stage for the wedding was transformed into a multicolored space for dinner and party.

The decoration for the wedding reception consisted of five rectangular wooden tables, each with a different colored tablecloth obtained by Sarah & Scott during her most recent trip to India. The seat chart was beautiful and simple, it was very easy for the guests to locate themselves at the tables looking for their assigned color.

Sarah and Scott enjoyed their first dance as husbands, it was a truly emotional moment for all present. During the rumba several groups of Colombian dances were incorporated to delight the guests and enjoy with the couple, to the rhythm of the Colombian folklore they encouraged this wonderful destination wedding in Cartagena.
