This couple decided to celebrate the most important day of their love story at the hacienda Sotuta de Peón, a henequen hacienda from the 19th century, completely restored and currently functioning as a hotel that offers tours to visitors. This beautiful construction rescues the history and tradition of the «Green Gold» era in Yucatan and combines a wide range of cultural, historical, tourist, gastronomic and natural beauty experiences that enchanted Susana and Alberto.
In the pool area of the hacienda, a welcome cocktail awaited the guests where they enjoyed some drinks and snacks to cool off and enjoy the wonderful weather, while the couple had their civil wedding in an intimate ceremony.
A romantic garden
The Sotuta de Peón hacienda is very spacious but has a beautiful garden dedicated to special events such as weddings. After the cocktail, the guests were directed to this garden where a beautiful reception accompanied by a large tent awaited them.
The setup looked amazing with tables in vintage tones and wooden elements that in contrast with tablecloths in nude tones, combined perfectly with the flowers in lilac, pink, and fuchsia tones. The couple chose a simple but elegant table setting that was 100% focused on keeping with the color palette while offering a cheerful and romantic ambiance.
Unique and creative decoration
The candy table was decorated with a beautiful floral arrangement that gave the illusion that the vase had been turned upside down, something rare but unique that provided a beautiful touch to the reception.
The menu selected by the couple was a 3-course international menu that was accompanied by peaceful background music.
At the end of the dinner, the couple had their first dance amidst the applause from their family and friends, after which the couple shared a very emotional moment dancing with their parents. After this touching moment, a Cuban music group was in charge of opening the dance floor and spreading their energy and fun to all the guests, who did not hesitate to leave their seats and enjoy a night full of music and fun.
