This featured wedding is a gem.
Not only because of the incredible beauty of details, people and places…. but specially because of the 2 who got married at Blue Venado, Playa del Carmen, last February 18th.
Sophie & Sean are 2 such amazing people: they are vital, funny, intelligent, kind, generous, witty, lovely and they love traveling !! all qualities that speak to me incessantly (this is me, Maria, reporting).
They met in the summer of 2009 working at the Orange Peel, a music venue in downtown Asheville, a city in western North Carolina’s Blue Ridge Mountains, known for a vibrant arts scene and historic architecture.
Sophie was immediately attracted to Sean’s ability to make everyone laugh; he is able to notch up any joke anyone could tell… so during a real conversation, Sophie told Sean about her dream to quit her job and take a long-term backpacking trip around Latin America…without hesitation he said “I’m coming with you”!
By November, they were inseparable….Sophie brought Sean to meet the Miller family for the first time after only a few months of dating…at Thanksgiving dinner. After that first trip they started off again to Asia and i am sure they are plotting something as I write….
Christmas of 2014 Sean surprised Sophie with the cutest gift – an 8 week old miniature Golden doodle who has since become their child… Check the wedding photo below to see how they kept Frankie present at the ceremony!
Sean proposed in June of 2016 at Falls Park in Greenville, on their way home from seeing Sophie’s favorite singer, John Prine. Sean prepared a killer music list at the wedding: and Dj Kipper had everybody dance, as you see!!!
Sophie and Sean decided to plan a destination wedding because they wanted to give their guests the opportunity to see Mexico! they came to see me twice and loved the location i proposed: jungly evergreen BV or Blue Venado. Many were in Mexico for the 1st time! tequilaaa
They wanted the wedding to reflect all of the journeys they’ve been on together. Sophie made napkins with brightly coloured Guatemalan and Thai fabric. She made runners from macrame. And of course, beautiful fuchsia and orange flowers to accent the white Papel Picado flags and globe lights. It was a colourful and spectacular event!
And we come to now:
Artsy Blue Venado World tour Wedding : Sophie wanted the details and Sean wanted the party so they got these amazing details filled with killer music: the Party of their life! It was an endless party and the Millermacks got to really bond!!
Sean and Sophie feel eternally grateful for their tribe in Asheville, CT & NY & all over the world who love & support them through whatever life throws their way, and to spend the rest of their lives together!
QUE VIVAN LOS MILLERMACKS!
