Antigua, Guatemala Weddings

Longing for a truly unique wedding destination?  Want to take your wedding away but not to a beach or other traditional destination wedding venue?   Consider Antigua, Guatemala.   Antigua, Guatemala is a Spanish colonial city in Central America.   Famous for its well-preserved Spanish Baroque-influenced architecture as well as a number of ruins of colonial churches.   The city literally feels frozen in time.  Travel is very easy to Antigua via Guatemala City that is just 40 miles away.   There are many things for you and your guests to see and do when visiting Antigua.   Guests can stroll the cobblestone streets and explore the many Catholic churches, visit a chocolate maker, tour a Jade factory or hike up one of the volcanoes overlooking the city for amazing views. Also near by there is deep sea fishing off the Pacific Coast that is approximately 1 hour away, a championship golf course near by that sits in the shadows of active volcanoes, historic Mayan ruins are a day trip away, there are coffee plantations to tour and so much more to do.   Antigua offers many boutique hotels, gourmet restaurants and markets in the small 9 square blocks of the city. The best time to visit is during their dry season which is November-April but weddings are best November-March.   This is a destination that is rich with culture and ready to greet couples and their guests to make a memorable wedding away.    I look forward to returning with my next wedding couple!  photos by Pixan Photography
