ceremony and reception were held at Hacienda Las Trancas. “This Hacienda is

 Contemplating San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, I’m pleasantly stumped. This town takes my breath away. Is it the high altitude (over 6000 feet)?Spectacular scenery? Colonial architecture? Set atop the Mexican Altiplano (Plateau) in the state of Guanajuato, colonial San Miguel is a tapestry of 18th century mansions, domed churches, statues in courtyards and cobblestone streets. Declared a national monument in 1926, it embraces a progressive community of artists, musicians and expats. No wonder creative inns and restaurants have blossomed here like jacaranda.
