Nine months after groom Michael traveled to Miami to find Raquel, a girl he met back in college in Boston, he popped the question in Peurto Rico. From a risky yet romantic gesture, the couple was set to plan their wedding.
Inspired by Raquel’s family heritage and personal connection, they decided to get married in Peru. The weekend-long celebration took place in 2017, with the parties leading up to their special day full of colour and elegant detailing.
The next day they woke up to their wedding day. Raquel wore the beautiful Collette, from collection Morocco 2017. The stunning gown is adorned in floral applique on the bodice and a big tulle skirt. Her stunning veil matched the wedding gown, including the applique detailing.
Their six hundred guests were treated to a traditional Jewish wedding ceremony, followed by a reception that took place in a clear cube. The room was decorated with flowers overhead and romantic lighting, and the DJ kept the crowd dancing until early hours in the morning. Those left were even treated to a typical Peurto Rican breakfast, reminiscent of their engagement while complimenting the Peruvian and Asian dishes that were served throughout the night.
