Wedding venue

{Punta del Este, Uruguay}

Lots of people have asked about why we chose Uruguay for our wedding location.

We wanted a place that would be the most enjoyable for everyone; one that would double as a fun & relaxing vacation for our friends and family, and for us. We definitely considered having the wedding in both Venezuela and Argentina, but we quickly realized that we wanted to stay away from the buzz and hassles of the big cities.

We still wanted a place that was meaningful, and Uruguay felt like the natural choice. Fran lived there for several years growing up, and continues to go back with his family every year for the holidays.

I recently found out that he was also baptized there, so we’ve decided to get married at the same church.

Once we had decided on the church, we had several options in mind for the reception.  We debated between an outdoor beach setting or a countryside one, and decided on an indoor/outdoor beachside reception at Fran’s dad’s restaurant in the nearby town of Jose Ignacio.

We are very excited about sharing this moment with our friends and family, and having everyone come together in such a beautiful place. November can’t come soon enough!
