Hacienda Siesta Alegre Wedding

As a fine art wedding photographer I love shooting at locations that are pure magic. One of those is the beautiful Hacienda Siesta Alegre, a magical place to have the perfect setting in the middle of the Island for your Puerto Rico Destination Wedding. A few years back I shot this incredible wedding. Today I wanted to share it with you. You can also be sure that it won’t be the last you will see from this hacienda.

I love this Puerto Rico venue so much because you actually feel like you are getting married right at El Yunque. Since Hacienda Siesta Alegre wedding overlook the beautiful rainforest on your ceremony setting you can see it as the backdrop to your I do’s.

This particular wedding was filled with color and tropical vibes. This can be quintessential to destination weddings in this venue. Although you truly don’t need much to make this venue look incredible, as it already is beautiful. You will see from all the decor and colors abound in the venue that it truly is nature in sync.

One of the things I remember most from this day is that it was a gorgeous sunny afternoon. The ceremony was absolutely beautiful with not a dry eye in the crowd. The couple was so joyous through it all. We shot some beautiful portraits and then just as they were about to do their first dance it started pouring. Not like simple cloud rain but full on water down from the sky! Yet, Thea and Max smiled, grabbed on to each other and went out to dance in the rain. All that mattered was their love and their celebration at their Hacienda Siesta Alegre wedding day.

Enjoy some of my favorite images!
