When two artistic souls convey amazing things happen. Painter Paola Rascon and architect Jose (Pepe) Sanz, design and produce this breath-taking wedding. Are you sitting down? You may want to because these following images straight from my hometown Chihuahua city are out of this world. My favorite weddings are those that show off a couple’s unique style and this one is full of personality. It is an explosion of gorgeousness and unexpected details.
The Venue: An old oatmeal factory, which is currently the couple’s office and studio, served as the venue for the reception. The photographer, Patricia Mariscal, described it as an “open house/wedding” event. Paola and Pepe incorporate into the wedding décor their own studio furniture, art books and accessories.
The Ceremonies: Yes, there were two ceremonies. In Mexico religious ceremonies are not recognized as official by the state. So people get married twice, once by the church, the other one by the state. This catholic ceremony took place at one of the most beautiful and iconic churches in town. The reception venue was also the location for the civil ceremony.
The Reception: After the civil ceremony, Paola and Pepe hosted their sit-down dinner decorated with banquet tables and candelabras by Castallia Eventos. All the waitresses had black masks painted on their faces. Lighting played a huge roll during the dinner party where the mood was set-up by the performance of a saxophone player.
After dinner, guest moved to the tent where lounge furniture, dance floor and the DJ started the outdoor party. To keep everyone warmed, instead of traditional heaters, a special chimney was build just for the occasion, as well as, the couple’s amazing sweet heart chairs.
