Rachael & Francisco’s spicy fusion wedding in Michigan, USA


It’s the storyline you might find in one of your favorite chick-flicks. Girl meets boy in a crazy nightclub of some foreign, exotic country. Worlds collide. They fall in love – their passion for each other undeniable – and soon they’re inseparable.

But it’s not a movie – it’s the real love story of USA girl Rachael Munn and Argentinean boy Francisco Barrios.

The spicy couple met at a nightclub in Argentina while Rachael, 26, was studying there on her internship. The couple locked eyes as Francisco, 25, motioned for her to stand in front of him in the line of the cloak room (such a gentleman!) They started talking, sparks flew, and by the next day Rachael had committed one of dating’s cardinal sins.

“I broke the ‘three-day rule!’” she says. “I couldn’t stop thinking about him so I texted him to say I wanted to see him. He invited me out to dinner that night and from then on we were inseparable.”

The couple decided to mesh both of their worlds for their fusion wedding theme, intertwining Rachael’s edgy, rock ’n’ roll side and Francisco’s rich Argentinean culture.

The bold colors and rich infusions of both aspects of the theme created a very modern, yet unique look for this wedding of 135 people at a country club in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

From Rachael’s colorful shoes straight from Argentina, to the rock ‘n’ roll cake, and their spicy dance routine, guests were truly able to capture a glimpse into what makes Francisco and Rachael’s relationship so special.

It is their ability and desire to intertwine cultures, personalities, and worlds. It is their ability to form it into a delicate balance and perfect love that is destined to only grow and mature for years to come.

We wish the best for this beautiful couple. Rock on!
