Celebrity Wedding: Mariel Perez Collazo and Rene Rivera

Monday, Monday! Hope everyone had a great weekend!

We wanted to start this week with a bang and what better way than with an amazing celebrity wedding! We are beyond excited to share the wedding of San Diego Padres Baseball Player and Puerto Rico native Rene Rivera. He married his lovely bride Mariel Perez (daughter of Eddie Perez co-founder of El Gran Combo) earlier this year at the gorgeous Hacienda Campo Rico. 

The bride looked stunning in her Manuel Mota gown with Carmen Escalera accessories, and let’s not forget her very blingy Christian Louboutins!

The day started of with a very emotional ceremony set under a tent that was fitted out to looks as a chapel. As guests arrived they were greeted with cocktails and hors d’oeuvres created exclusively for the occasion. The ceremony was musically complemented by a set of strings being the perfect setting for Teresita Mercado to interpret the Ave María.

Our favorite detail of the night were the escort cards! We loved the personal touch of the baseballs to pay homage to the groom.

After the ceremony guests enjoyed some more cocktails followed by an amazing dinner reception catered by family friend Chef Enrique Piñeiro. 

Guest of the black tie affair enjoyed a night of dancing with various musical arts. The parents of the bride invited several music artists which turned the night into a personal concert! Musical guests included Singers Ricky Luis, Jose Alberto El Canario, Ismael Miranda, “Grupo Amanecer”, “Son de Madre” and “Grupo Zarabanda” who closed the party in a carnival theme with bigheaded puppets, stilt walkers and puertorrican “vejigantes”.

One of the most emotional moments of the night was when Ismael Miranda performed “Mi Niña Bonita” for the bride and her father.
