Spectacular colonial views of the towns, the best highland sunset, lavish decor, and opulent florals—Caroline and Philip’s picture-perfect San Miguel destination wedding will sweep you away. Captivated by the bride’s hometown, the couple wanted to return with all their loved ones to experience the magic on their big day together. And with the help of their planner Lucero Alvarez, they pulled off the luxurious wedding theme like a dream!
The couple exchanged vows at their beautiful traditional ceremony in Parroquia de San Miguel Arcángel before heading to their grand marquee reception at Rosewood San Miguel De Allende. There they danced the night away underneath a decadent ceiling filled with lush florals and fairy lights.
To top it all off, they tied the show-stopping elements together with their stunning wedding fashion. The groom looked perfectly dapper in a classic tux, while the bride made a statement with her floral wedding gown and matching embroidered veil. One look at these breathtaking images by Junebug member Ana Hinojosa, and we guarantee you’ll be inspired to start planning your own luxe faraway fete.

Why They Chose A San Miguel Destination Wedding
I grew up going to San Miguel as a little girl, and my family is of Mexican heritage, so it just made sense that we get married in my hometown. We’ve always described San Miguel as magical, and that’s how I feel every time I see the cobblestone streets and colorful doors.
The First Look And First Dance Are The Bride’s Most Cherished Wedding Memories
The first look and first dance are a tie for my favorite moment of the day. All I wanted to do was be with Phil that day, so seeing him for the first time brought me the greatest sense of peace. I knew the rest of the day would be okay no matter what. Our first dance was to “Young and Beautiful” by Lana del Ray and was a truly magical moment for me. It felt like time was suspended at that moment for us.
