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…
