Luxury at Plaza Grande Hotel in Quito, Ecuador

As the day of our wedding approached, I had to start looking at options for venues for this important day.

I knew I wanted an elegant venue,  big enough for a big family from South America, but at the same time, we wanted it to stay below 150 guests.

Location was also an essential factor to consider, as we had guests flying from abroad, we wanted to find a venue located in a charming location.

This narrowed the search, and we started looking for a venue in the historical center of Quito, a world heritage site.

Wedding venue

After researching and visiting several venues, we decided to go for one of Quito’s most refined hotels: Plaza Grande Hotel.
