From the beginning, Desiree and Garrett were committed to realizing their dream wedding. Taking inspiration from their French villa venue, they embraced a timeless garden theme. They had one goal in mind, and that was to throw a luxurious garden soiree–and they totally succeeded! From the standout florals and timeless decor to the chic fashion and showstopping entertainment, they brought their Villa Du Cacique wedding to life with the help of their trusted team of pros.
In their garden ceremony, a path adorned with white blooms guided the way to an ornate fountain, providing a captivating backdrop for their romantic vows. Their tented reception featured tablescapes adorned with lush centerpieces and the warm glow of candles, along with chic lounge areas. To tie it all together, cascading greenery and chandeliers suspended from the ceiling enveloped the space, creating a seamless and enchanting atmosphere.

How Their Villa Du Cacique Wedding Came To Be
The design was the most important to me. I wanted it to be the wedding of my dreams! We partnered with Invent Weddings for our wedding planning and design. We first found our venue, a French Villa in Casa De Campo, that inspired a classy garden-themed wedding. I came across Casa De Campo on TikTok, which took me down a rabbit hole and eventually across our venue. The overall theme of the wedding was a luxurious garden with greenery and chandeliers.

Wedding Reception Highlight: Sparkling Entrance with Saxophone Melodies
The most memorable part of our day was our wedding entrance. We had bottle service sparklers that our guests lit up. Our wedding party walked in first with a bottle of Colombian alcohol each to provide to every guest table, and then we walked in as a live Saxophone was playing.
