Michelle and Ricardo wanted their wedding to be an intimate, laid-back event, so a Mexican villa wedding at Casa Chorro was the perfect choice! Creare & Co helped this sweet couple pull off a mix rustic and boho vibe, complete with dreamy reception decor that will totally make you swoon. We’re obsessed with the colors in the most stunning floral bouquets and ceremony blooms La Musa de las Flores created for the day. And if you’ve ever dreamed of dancing through the streets after saying your “I do’s,” just wait until you see the photos Jordan Voth captured of Michelle and Ricardo ‘s callejoneada parade, a San Miguel de Allende tradition!

It was such a special moment to connect together alone before the ceremony started. It definitely brought our nerves at ease and gave us some time before the busy day to have an intimate moment together.
We had custom made maracas on every seat at the ceremony for everyone to shake at the kiss. They were hand painted with our names and wedding date on them.
Our ceremony was very special to us. It was in a small area of the villa with beautiful flowers and our sister in law sang ‘Stay With You’ by John Legend as I walked down the aisle with my father. Ricardo‘s sister gave us away and she wrote a really beautiful speech to us before we exchanged personalized vows – we had everyone crying by the end of them!
Creare & Co created an unforgettable day for us. We went to San Miguel once before our wedding to meet with them, so the rest was done via phone. Maye Cordova Eventos created incredible dishes for our wedding as well as our pool party the day after the wedding. Gabriela (our florist) created out of this world flower arrangements that just blew my mind.
No one knew about the callejoneada. We made sure to let everyone know that the streets were cobblestone so it was best that to wear comfortable/flat shoes. After the ceremony, everyone took a celebratory shot of tequila and we all started to walk outside the venue to meet the band and puppets. You could see the confusion on everyone’s faces and once we reached the band and puppets you could see the excitement of their faces.
We found these beautiful villas throughout San Miguel but the grounds at Casa Chorro were just incredible. The backyard was large enough to fit everything from the ceremony to reception and pool celebration.
Gabriela is absolutely incredible and she creates these insane flower arrangements from her home garden in Valle de Bravo, Mexico. I didn’t even know what kind of flowers we were having until the day of the wedding! So for all the other decorations, we went with neutrals – wood tables, white papel picado (traditional Mexican hanging tissue paper), white maracas, grey and white plates with traditional silverware and white candles. The colorful flowers added the perfect touch to the neutral decorations!
