There are tall tales, short tales, fairy tales. But have you ever heard of an Andean tale? Read all about our Ecuador weddings in the Andes if you haven’t yet!
It begins with a place, like all good stories do. In this case not a castle, but a hacienda. A rural idyll tucked away in the northern Andes of Ecuador, South America. And it ends happily, of course: with vows, confetti and the most joyful day of two people’s lives.
Do all Andean tales end happily? At Hacienda Cusin they certainly believe so. For one, they have the climate. Located inches from the Equator, there is no bad time to visit, or tie the knot. Nearly every morning, the day breaks clear and crisp. The weather is never too hot, nor too cold. It’s springtime all year-round.
It needn’t be complicated, either. Bride and groom, family and guests can all fly to Quito – Ecuador’s capital – from a number of US cities, and be relaxing in the hacienda’s grounds within two hours of landing, surrounded by towering trees draped in orchids, flower beds brimming with blooms and idyllic nooks to while away the afternoons — ready to enjoy one of our fabled Ecuador weddings in the Andes.
As a former farm, the hacienda’s accommodation ranges from the handsome rooms of the main houses, through to garden cottages dotted about the extensive estate, and on to the Monastery of Cusin, an artfully-designed complex – all perfect for hosting the Ecuador wedding guests. Its dining room can seat 40, while tents can be placed around the gardens to cater for up to 200 guests for lunch.
