San Miguel de Allende

10/26/2015

I feel cliché using the word "magical" to describe a place but it's the best word that comes to mind when I think of San Miguel de Allende, where we just spent a long weekend celebrating the wedding of two close friends. See below for more photos from the weekend tips for traveling to San Miguel from the bride herself. 
Every tour in San Miguel de Allende should begin at the jardin, the city’s central square. Since the early 18th century it has been the heart and soul of San Miguel. This area has great restaurants and cafes and it's the spot to people watch and admire the pink sandstone arches of the Parroquia de San Miguel Arcangel, the city’s unusual neo-Gothic church. Next, stop into the Museo de San Miguel, which offers a nice introduction to the city’s history. 
I snapped this photo right below La Azotea, a rooftop bar located right beneath the parroquia and overlooking the dome of Las Monjas where we found ourselves a few times over the course of the weekend. We had the best tacos at Don Taco Tequila one day as well.
 
Drinks with a view at the Luna Rooftop Tapas Bar, on top of the swanky hotel Rosewood.
The bridesmaids got ready at the reception venue, Casa Parque at Belmond Casa de Sierra Nevada. Someone even delivered churros from the famous San Agustin Chocolates & Churros so we could snack on them while getting ready.
A few post-ceremony shots with my handsome husband and my girls. I can't wait to see the professional photos from Rob and Lindsay, who shot our wedding. See a sneak peek here. (p.s. our bridesmaids dresses were Reformation)
