The romanticism that prevails in San Miguel de Allende is due to its people, who have positioned the city in the international wedding industry.
In recent years, the Secretary of Tourism of the State of Guanajuato, led by Juan José Álvarez Brunel, has worked in alliances with all San Miguel suppliers to strengthen the sector with training and professionalization and place the World Heritage City in the best wedding destination.
The activity of Romance Tourism has taken on great relevance worldwide and in San Miguel de Allende the work of those who started in this segment is recognized and praised.
In this sense, maestro Álvarez Brunel celebrated, together with Guadalupe Álvarez, wedding planner at Penzi Bodas, the pioneers of weddings in this destination, thanking them for their work and commitment in this segment.

The work of unity and commitment for this segment is strengthened with the formation of alliances. Today, we celebrate that Guanajuato is a benchmark in this segment, more and more couples are traveling to the destination to get married and share their love in magnificent settings of the State,” applauded the Secretary of Tourism.
