For their anniversary, Gayle and Pat traded Paradise Valley, Arizona for San Miguel de Allende with their nearest and dearest to celebrate 15 years of their love story. With equal parts color and culture, their celebration spanned multiple days in some of San Miguel de Allende’s most beloved backdrops. At their Welcome Party, guests enjoyed the entertainment of mariachis and mojigangas while sipping and noshing on festive cocktails and colorful Mexican tapas. As the sun set, they dined under the stars with San Miguel de Allende’s cityscape glimmering in the distance. Their Anniversary Party took place on the lawn at Villas Xido where they exchanged sweet sentiments and poetry with a lush floral arch by Angelica Solache as their backdrop. The couple then were joined by their guests for a smudging ceremony before heading into the poolside cocktail hour and a final fiesta to wrap up the celebration. Penzi Weddings orchestrated the celebration of their dreams and Ildefonso Gutierrez captured it all to perfection!

Gayle is a seller of antique/precious jewelry, so it came as no surprise that her fashion was on point from start to finish. She wore a stunning Johanna Ortiz orange dress, made in the designer’s Colombian atelier. The bodice featured labyrinthine stitchwork and a jingle-jangling skirt made from tiny tiles. Accessorized with gold earrings, an upper arm cuff, Aquazzura shoes, and a bright bloom in her hair, her look was perfectly fitting for her San Miguel de Allende celebration!
