Botanical Gardens elopement honoring Guatemalan culture
Chris and Erick were supposed to have a destination wedding on Lake Atitlan in Guatemala, where Erick’s family is from. Covid-19, however, prevented that Plan A from happening. But the couple made lemons out of lemonade and eloped in style at the Royal Botanical Gardens in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada.
Before the ceremony, the couple went canoeing in a beautiful canoe adorned with greenery. They also enjoyed a delicious picnic. After their vows, they shared a romantic dinner together. The day was filled with bold colors, exciting patterns, and most importantly, endless joy. Although the couple could not be in Guatemala, the setting, food and decor still honored Guatemalan culture.
