Just a 2-hour drive west of Mexico City lays the exquisite town of Valle de Bravo. In the heart of the town, on the edge of Lake Avandaro, sits Cinco Rodavento – a zen-like boutique hotel beckoning adventure lovers and respite seekers alike to stay a while.
Karla, Amelia & Pamela of Karla Casillas & Co. accompanied me to Cinco Rodavento to photograph a styled wedding shoot within the hotel.
The shoot took place in front of Lake Avandaro on a beautifully hazy day, making our backdrop all the more mesmerizing. The Karla Casillas team curated the wedding ceremony area beautifully, using a selection of modern and boho chic furnishings to create that intimate and original vibe that so many brides and grooms are looking for.
We combined deep, lush rustic hues within the florals, which I thought played out beautifully next to the slate grey flooring and walls. Cinco Rodavento, as a wedding venue, is the embodiment of modern warmth, for those seeking a wedding destination with some serious personality.
