Olivia and Gerardo said “I do” in Mexico, a destination wedding in Rosarito, to be exact.  With deep colors of purple, red and some white, the duo set off for a magical trip and a big celebration.

 When asked about their most memorable moments of the day; Olivia said, When I walked down the aisle and experienced crazy tunnel vision like in the movies!” While Gerardo said, “When my friend Jorge surprised us with his wedding gift, he sang ‘Hermoso Carino’ a classic mariachi song.”
