Thank you for visiting and welcome to the Alegría Events Blog! Alegría is the Spanish word for Joy. It was chosen because my grandparents saw the potential that lied beneath all of the hard work that would be required to turn an overgrown plot of land into a beautiful and luscious mango grove. Back then their dream was to own and operate a local fruit grove and to run a small business of their very own. Over the years, our family has seen old faces and new returning to our farm to support our small business and it is all thanks to them, and you, that we've become much more than just a mango grove.
In 2017, my wife and I launched Alegría Events, a venture that was truly born from the heart! After getting engaged in 2016 under a spectacular oak tree, we immediately began searching for an equally beautiful and special place to say our vows. We wanted a space that reflected our love of adventure, the outdoors, and our unique sense of style. Like most newly engaged couples, we embarked on a journey to find that perfect venue.
With each and every visit to a wedding venue, we returned to the farm only to realize that there truly is “no place like home.” Within a year we were married in the mango grove, a place where our family planted seeds so many years ago. We danced the night away underneath an oak tree of our very own surrounded by all of the things and people we love most. Now as husband and wife, we hope to spread that joy to you!
