A Colorful Mexican Fusion Wedding at Four Seasons Hotel in Mexico City, Mexico

Long before she became a bride-to-be, Anna Moreno-Nava (35 and an artist) envisioned herself saying “I do” in Naeem Khan’s Barcelona gown. “I always pictured myself in that wedding dress,” she says. “I loved that the tiers and layers of wide lace paid homage to my Hispanic roots.” For their December nuptials in the heart of Mexico City, Anna and then fiance, Stephen Salloum (38 and a venture capitalist) became Se?or y Se?ora in a traditional Maronite Catholic ceremony at the Catedral Maronita de Mexico—a church nestled in the heart of the city’s bustling textile district. “The ceremony was recited in Arabic and Syriac as a nod to Stephen’s Lebanese background,” Anna says. As the intimate ceremony came to a close, the newlyweds honored the tradition of presenting a bouquet of white calla lilies to Our Lady of Guadalupe before music from a live mariachi band signaled their exit from the church. Once at the reception, guests found their seats at round dinner tables topped with colorful sarape linens, embroidered tapestries and miniature cactus details. “We loved that our hotel venue exuded the feel of an authentic Mexican experience, with its courtyard, tiled hallways, balconies and gardens,” Anna says. “It was all very romantic.”
