Real Wedding: San Juan Destination Wedding Fun

For bride Maria and groom Julian, their wedding day was magical. Their nuptials were held in the gorgeous town of San Juan, Puerto Rico, where the traditional ceremony took place at the historic San Juan Cathedral. The modern, elegant reception occurred at the turn of the century venue Casa Olimpica where the couple incorporated their personal charms with little DIY touches. Ben Elsass Photography captured the many memories throughout the day beautifully. Guests enjoyed a traditional homestyle buffet prepared by Juan Bonilla Catering paired with home-brewed craft beers and a delicious cake courtesy of their local family business. White and pink roses from Manteleria added color and brightness to the day, and they complemented the many details of the ceremony and reception perfectly. The couple included small paper mustaches and other dress-up pieces for guests to have fun with throughout the night. Since Maria and Julian met while out singing karaoke, they made sure to incorporate karaoke in their day, and DJ Rock Hand provided fun and entertaining music to do just that! As Maria said, the wedding was “magical, super fun, it was happiness in full bloom, it was smiles and pure joy, it was sacred and sublime,” and Ben Elsass Photography‘s pictures show the magic!
