We were nominated based off of the following three showcases:

Event Showcase 1 | Lorena and Ricard’s Mexico Wedding
A fairy tale wedding full of Mexican and Nicaraguan traditions and old world romance. It was the perfect old world setting, where indigenous, pre-Colombian and colonial influences converge. The wedding emphasized both of their cultures with folkloric dancers and musicians, traditional rituals, famous Oaxacan cuisine, favors made by local craftsmen and artisans, fireworks, and grand wishing tree.
