Visiting Cabo Rojo, Puerto Rico became a yearly tradition for Maria and Thad, after they met while working for CNN. Six years later Thad proposed there and they knew it would be the perfect place to have their wedding. Is was also special to Maria as her family roots are in Puerto Rico.
They had an amazing welcome dinner at their dear friends hacienda at the top of the island in Cabo Rojo. The next day included a tradition Catholic service at Santa Inglesia Caterdal Nuestra Senora del la Candelaria as well as an amazing oceanside celebration at Rincon Ocean Villa. They guests dined on Tostones and surullitos and traditional Puerto Rican dishes like pastelon, arroz con pollo and empanadas to the strains of traditional Latin music. For dessert the couple served pastelillitos de guayaba. After dinner the couple hired salsa dancers to teach guests how to dance Latin style.
A huge congratulations to such a special couple!
