Hilton Cartagena Wedding – Jessica & Jovany

Jessica and Jovany met whilst they were both working at Walgreens in 2014, but they never really spoke past the occasional hello. Two years later, they began talking via Facebook and then followed with their first date to watch a Colombian soccer game. Shortly after, Jovany placed a gift on the bed as they were getting ready and popped the question. It was simple and intimate, just what Jessica wanted. That night they celebrated by going to the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino with their friends.

They began wedding planning and although their initial idea was to go with a turquoise colour, they ended up searching through Pinterest and found the pop of colour they were looking for, so they decided to stay neutral with white, green, and a pop of red in all their details. They then looked at locations, they wanted a destination wedding. Jovany is from Puerto Rico and Jessica is Colombian. They decided on The Hilton Cartagena and found a local wedding planner to help them put together their beautiful day. They added multiple cultural elements to their wedding such as "The Mulatas" a folklore dance group that is a tradition in Cartagena, Colombia. They were at the exit of the church and guided the guests and Bride/Groom through the town as a traditional celebration of becoming newlyweds. They also had multiple details in their wedding like a cultural photo backdrop and coffee sacks as favours.
