Rincon is the Ultimate Wedding Destination: Now, for sure, everyone will know that Rincon is The Place to Get Married.

In a perfect Rincon-style quirky story, the newlywed's former spouses were also a couple. The Rincon wedding took place only about a month after they announced their engagement. Rincon rejoiced and wished the newlyweds happiness and continued good fortune.
