Dana and Raul held their ceremony and reception at the spectacular Saks Restaurant in Mexico City.

In keeping with their classic meets modern meets rock and roll theme and passion for music, the bride walked down the aisle to The Beatles cover of “I Want To Hold Your Hand” by T.V Carpio. The ceremony soundtrack included “Wonderwall” by Oasis, “Enterlude” by The Killers and “Boy’s Don’t Cry” by The Cure.

Dana and Raul danced their first dance to a Cuban salsa remix of “Clocks” by Coldplay. They took extensive cha cha lessons to wow their guests and it worked!
