Wedding Wednesday: Templo de San Agustin, Saint Agustin [Guadalajara, Mexico]

El Templo de San Agustin, is where my husband and I had our religious ceremony on November eleventh, two thousand and eleven. It is located in “La Plaza de Libertad” in the heart of historic downtown Guadalajara, Mexico. 

San Agustin is one of the oldest churches in Guadalajara, founded in 1573. Like many other churches built during the Sixteenth Century, they had convents that were attached. Presently, the convent (seen on the left, behind the tree) is home to the School of Music of the University of Guadalajara.


Initially, this was not the our first choice. The same day we were hunting for an hacienda for our reception, we had checked out a temple in the same municipality, and loved it. Unfortunately, or fortunately, another couple beat us! Hahaha. So here I was six months before our wedding, in Vancouver, researching temples in Guadalajara. We believe that “everything happens for a reason” and knew things would work out for the best! And that’s just what happened! 


So thankfully, after several (about 15) failed attempts at finding an available church, I found San Agustin! It was available for our date and time! *phew* I had a good friend of ours check out San Agustin, to make sure it was what I had read, and seen in pictures, and it was! YAY!


QUE MI ALMA TE ALABE SEÑOR,
PARA QUE TE AME, Y QUE TE AME
PARA QUE TE ALABE.

– S.AGUSTIN CONF. IV 16,31.
