magda+jordan-destination parras, mexico

ok beautiful people out there...time for another destination wedding post. Magda+Jordan are a super cool couple, they had their dream wedding in Parras Coahuila Mexico. Three days of wonderful festivities, we started in Monterrey with a wonderful reception, next day a pool party and then the big day at the Casa Madero vineyard. We had a fabulous time covering this super fun weekend, and got to meet lots of wonderful people while there. This is going to be a super sized post, so go grab your favorite glass of wine (I'm having a cabernet sauvignon from the 400+ Casa Madero winery) and enjoy !

first the slideshow:
