Burgos Wedding in an Old Palace

Spain Palacio Wedding from Marcos Sanchez_0011

 

Do you know what I love most about this odd job of mine, about being a wedding blogger? The couples. Seeing their pictures, reading their love stories, browsing through all the images that never make it on the blog… These brides and grooms let me become a part of their big day, and for that I will always be grateful. Beyond the stunning dresses and gorgeous flowers, I find beauty in seeing their smiles, tears and subtle glances, although a lots of times I can’t even show all that in a post.

Why am I telling all this? Well, because looking at this particular wedding, I could practically feel the love between these two! They were overjoyed to get married, and their guests were equally moved and excited. So don’t let the palacio setting and the tuxedo fool you, this is a heartfelt and joyous wedding, captured beautifully by Marcos Sanchez.

The bride on finding the venue: “We visited several venues, were looking for something simple, in the country, cosy and nice. When we first visited Huermeces palace we saw that fit with our idea, and Oscar made us feel so comfortable that we didn’t hesitate one moment to have our wedding there.”

“Thanks to Best Day Ever, we had all the details we wanted for our wedding: the ceremony’s decoration, with small bottles hanging from a tree and filled with wild flowers, a reception with lemonade, old wedding photos hanging from a wall in the garden, a guest book table…”

What would advice would you give brides-to-be? “I would tell them the same thing we were told: Enjoy all the little details surrounding that day and every moment, leaving behind nerves and worries. Think about the essence of a wedding and everything else will be ok for sure.”

How did you two meet?
Like most of good things, our story began when we less expected it. It was in Madrid’s jungle where we found each other. The place, Melos, a famous bar in the Lavapies area. All happened between friends, laughter and drinks. Maybe the Albariño brought us together, maybe Beltrán (our mutual frind), destiny, or maybe it just had to happen. That’s how a 25th of October 7 years ago our paths crossed.

How did your husband propose?
It was in a country house in the Gredos mountains (Avila). The Aravalle area is a specila place, where we went for our first getaway together and where we really began to know each other. Same house, same Jacuzzi, same rainy days, same people, strong feelings, happy end…

Puglia Wedding with Gold Glitter Details

Puglia Wedding with Gold Glitter from In The Mood 4 Love_0012

 

Sometimes there are weddings of which I want to feature ALL photos I’ve been sent, because there are so many cute ideas and pretty things that deserve being shown! But, alas, we don’t really have that much space for just one post, so I will try and use my words for this one here: Anna of In The Mood 4 Love really went all the way designing Lian’s and Ed’s nuptials in Puglia. From the wishing tree, over the original seating display to the photobooth, this wedding is full of details – many of them coated in gold glitter, which of course is always a plus in my book. Enjoy!

From the bride: “We chose to get married the Meditarranean as we had both enjoyed many holidays here, we wanted the beauty of the Med along with the accesibility for our guests. We found our fairytale location in Puglia after a good friend recommended the area. The charm, characteristics and culture was overwhelming. After a couple of trips we felt this location suited our personalities and style and so forth we went. Finding Anna Calzolaio, event stylist and wedding planner, our decision was made. From our first encounter we knew with Anna we could make our ambitions and visions come to life. Anna’s love for her home along with her passion for style instantly felt right and comforting.”

“The planning was made over 12 months, countless emails and Skype calls, but Anna took many of our stresses away. We visited Puglia and met with Anna and researched many venues that both Anna and we had suggested. We chose our venue and accommodation for the week at ‘Masseria Villa Cenci’, breathtakingly beautiful and the perfect retreat. Many parts of our wedding were hand made primarirly by Anna, from the personalised hanging hearts on each of guests doors to the glitter feather place settings…”

About having a destination wedding: “Watching our family and friends gather for our week in Puglia we knew we’d made the right decision, as they all began to explore the local delights, they too felt the ambience we had wanted to create. We arranged a ‘Welcome BBQ’ & ‘A day at the Beach’, all with the assistance of Anna, which helped our guest settle in and relax.”

Any advice for brides-to-be? “Find a dedicated talented wedding planner, its make every difference. Realise you can’t have complete control and place trust with others.
Drink plenty of water! – Breath, relax, enjoy and nurture each precious moment, see the smiles and relish in knowing ‘your in love’, this is your fairytale.”

Modern Dresses for City Weddings from Küssdiebraut

Küssdiebraut 2015 Collection_0005

 

Sometimes minimalist elegance is called for. Even in weddings. If that’s what you’re looking for, Küssdiebraut‘s clean and modern collection might be something for you. They have a range of vintage and retro-inspired gowns, including some very simple classic lines, but also short models with colorful petticoats and then some casual and slightly bohemian dresses.
My personal favorite are their most modern designs, perfect for civil ceremonies and city weddings. Loving the Brigitte Bardot vibe in some of these… And of course the pantsuite – oh the pantsuite…

Pink + Gold Palazzo Wedding in Venice

Venice Wedding from My Italian Wedding Planner_0014

 

We feature a lot of rustic outdoor, bohemian beach, sometimes even city chic weddings… but not very often do we see such a romantic affair like today’s Venetian nuptials, planned and designed by My Italian Wedding. This wedding is Italian rococo brought back to life, it’s all about romance, gold and pink – from the palazzo setting, the bride’s ruffled dress, to the blush flowers, I think it matches Venice’s pastel colors and glamorous charm perfectly!

From the bride: “Scott and I talked about different options for the wedding and as soon as we talked about Venice, we both got super excited. Traveling has always been a big part of our relationship, our first trip together was to Paris a couple months after we started dating, so a wedding in Venice felt perfect. We were very lucky to have 24 of our family and friends fly from Los Angeles to Venice for the wedding festivities. The wedding was absolutely perfect and we wouldn’t have changed anything.”

From My Italian Wedding“Danielle and Scott wanted something “really Venetian”, but at the same time not commercial (as in a hotel, for example). So we found this decadent villa in Canareggio, one of the quietest and traditional districts in Venice, which was full of character and dusted furniture and mirrors… We used a lot of pom poms in different size and shapes, cushions to decorate the old sofas and vintage table cloths for the reception tables. And lots of white, pink and blush flowers which gave a romantic touch to the decadent look of the villa.”

Video: Timeless Marbella Destination Wedding

Destination-Wedding-Marbella-Videographer

 

I had a hard time finding an adjective that best describes the wedding you see in the video below. It’s beautiful and classic, yet distinctly modern at the same time. It’s timeless and elegant, yet not stuffy or conservative. It’s perfect. And it shows that the bride works in fashion.

Tanya and Adam have spent many vacations together in the South of Spain, where her family owns a house, so they decided to also tie the know under the Marbellan sun. The StudioKrrusel captured their day on film, and I love the way they intercut the ceremony with other scenes…
