Zandrea & Darren


This dreamy fairy tale destination wedding was starred by NYC model Zandrea Penn and lawyer, Darren Minton, and took place at two of the most exclusive wedding venues in Puerto Vallarta.

The exchange of vows was held at Hacienda San Angel’s, “Puerta del Cielo” chapel followed by the reception at the outstanding Villa Mandarinas.

The episcopal ceremony was as classical as it could be. All the flowers for the ceremony were in white tones; and the ceremony was complimented by a string quartet which played “La Vie en Rose” for the bride’s processional.

This Spanish-inspired wedding included long wood rustic tables, centerpieces with iron candelabras, bees-wax candles, garlands made with fresh flowers in orange, burgundy, peach, white, ivory, and lilac colors. Warm lighting by lanterns and a Spanish guitar player harmonized dinner.

The wedding guests enjoyed a cocktail at the garden; around the fire pit with yummy “raspado-style” mango and chamoy margaritas as signature drinks, and followed by a spectacular dinner by the water, and dancing by the main terrace/pool.

The couple surprised their guest with a choreographed first dance, “La Vida es un Carnaval” by Celia Cruz while fireworks lighted the ocean and amazed their guest to end this magical moment that they will sure remember for a lifetime.

Zandrea & Darren, we feel extremely honored to have been part of your dreamy wedding and wish you a lifetime of joy and happiness together!
