Wedding Reception in Convento de las Capuchinas – Table Settings

As the second part of the our wedding celebrations, we had our guests move from San Jose el Viejo and had the Wedding Reception in Convento de las Capuchinas. The Church and Convent of Capuchinas is a notable convent and church in Antigua, Guatemala. It is one of the finest examples of an 18th-century convent in Guatemala. The venue is an absolutely spectacular place to hold a great party.

In putting on an epic wedding celebration, there are so many moving parts to consider … but women seem to love the small details in combination with the larger details like venue. For this photo post, I’ll focus on the venue and table settings. There was so much detail put into the venue and the tables to make this a special experience for our guests. We wanted to create a luxuriant yet creative space that encompassed our personalization and taste.

For instance, there were many small items that we put our logo or our titles on or props that we gave to our guests, to allow them to have as an interactive experience as they could have at our wedding.





We gave our guests … crayons for their antique paper setting … Andria Hinton was a bit over creative!! 😀

We gave our guests tons of props to make their own experiences too. Thanks for the pic Andria Hinton

In layering all the personalizations, nothing works if the venue isn’t set up properly. Our designer/decoration Mario did an amazing job in making the vision and lighting work together to bring together all the elements and incorporate it into the venue.
