Growing up in Houston, Dagney Pruner had all the time imagined that when she wed it might be at her household’s ranch in Wimberley. Actuality intervened when she and Carlos Gómez del Campo Neme of Mexico Metropolis turned engaged.
“I completely fell in love with town,” she says of her future husband’s residence.
The wedding bells for the couple, who now name Austin residence, ranged out from the chapel in Mexico Metropolis’s Colegio de San Ignacio de Loyola Vizcaínas in October. The mid-18th-century Baroque constructing set the stage for an equally grand wedding celebration that went from nightfall to daybreak.
The luxurious festivities, orchestrated by occasion planner Diego del Rigo Zepeda of Mexico Metropolis, unfold over three days, starting with a night of dinner and dancing for shut mates at Blanco Castelar within the prosperous neighborhood of Polanco. The couple wed on a Friday night in a civil ceremony that was held on the rooftop of Cipriani Masaryk in Polanco, the place out-of-town friends joined within the revelry.
“I informed Diego I needed one thing extremely romantic, lush, and like a black-tie midsummer evening’s dream,” Dagney says of the wedding celebration. “A lot of wealthy pinks and burgundy, candles all over the place, ornate gold flatware, open fruit shows on each desk wanting like a royal feast, ivy dripping from the arches, and chandeliers hanging all over the place.”

He delivered past expectation. Following the ceremony within the cathedral, the place the bride wore an impressive Monique Lhuillier robe, the 700 friends moved to the central domed courtyard of the historic constructing alongside a pathway of sparklers that spewed fiery crystals all through the evening.
Crews labored for 24 hours reworking the reception house right into a magical wonderland the place Zepeda created a shimmering tableau throughout the huge inside with dramatically lighted navy velvet draping; lots of of candles; the Baroque arches drenched in ivy and flowers; banks of roses, orchids, and different flowers; and tables magnificently set with gleaming crystal glasses and golden flatware.
All through the five-course dinner, which was catered by Les Croissants, Paco de María (assume Michael Bublé) and his swing band carried out American classics. Because the evening moved on, DJ Julio spun each Mexican and American hits. The dancing frolic was interrupted at 2 am by a bathe of metallic confetti that drenched the dance ground, the place the partying continued till 6 am.
Two bars on the dance ground allowed friends to plan their very own gin and tequila drinks with mint, berries and the like that have been blended by speakeasy-costumed bartenders. The drinks have been served within the couple’s customized sippy cups printed with their wedding emblem.
“It completely saved the dance ground from damaged glass and my gown hem from the same old dance ground sludge,” Dagney says.

The dance ground design was customized made for the wedding and that design was used to tie the whole lot collectively: the menus, the desk numbers, the design on the cigarette packing containers have been positioned on every desk.
