Andrea and Paul live in New Jersey and decided on a destination Wedding in sunny Cartagena, Colombia, South America. They fell in love with an old colonial church that nowadays serves as a Venue. The entire hotel of their venue uses to be a convent during colonial times. Now fully restores to its glory, the venue offers the charm of times past. The interior of the venue still holds antique statues and what once was the altar is the stage. 60 of their closes friends and family joined them as they tied the knot for this destination wedding.


The bride and father arrived at the church on a traditional horse-drawn carriage which later took the married couple to the reception. As their ring bearer, they choose their son, but he is still a baby, he was brought in in a white cart by the flower girl. Their wedding cake was flanked by an array of dessert and was candy to the eye. Cascading curtains of mini lights created a one of a kind invitation to the dance floor.
