The beauty of a transparent tent

All of the furniture chosen for the day was made of wood, down to the DJ booth. The reception was made up of long tables with lots of candles and glassware containing the flowers, as well as burnt clay vases to honor details from Oaxaca. Under a transparent tent from Sica Eventos that let the stars shine through while also reflecting the chandeliers, Oaxacan-inspired earthenware place settings set the stage for dinner.
