Personality Filled DIY Wedding in Galicia, Spain

At its very core, this wedding captured by Jimena Roquero is gorgeous. The florals, the setting, the couple – it’s honestly breathtaking from start to finish. But beyond all that, you seem to get to know the couple with each stunning image. With it’s somewhat boho, somewhat vintage, somewhat classic feel, this couple packed their personality into every heartfelt detail, and you can fall in love with all of it here.

From Jimena RoqueroAlthough they kept some classic touches, Mar and Maurix wanted a different wedding so they personally took care of every single detail of the wedding.

Since one year earlier, Mar collected all kind of jars and bottles, which she painted and turned into the stunning table decoration she displayed at her wedding. And she created a different design for every single number of the table settings! They are both graphic designers and have a great artistic sense, and they used it to create and design everything involved, from the invitations, tote bags as favor gifts, to all the stationary, etc… Mar even designed her own dress which was executed later by the designer Sole Alonso. Mar know she would like to wear a simple dress with an original touch, so she wore some traditional knickers underneath!

Mar always dreamed of getting married in a ranch, but when she fell in love with Maurix, a boy from the Spanish region of Galicia, she decided she would change the ranch for a “Pazo” (the traditional Galician house”). However, since they are both big fans of the American culture, they rented an old Cadillac to drive them to the reception to surprise all their guests. Mar also had another surprise for Maurix: she brought to the wedding one of Maurix’s favorite bands to play a little live show during the cocktail hour. Of course, Maurix was in tears when he saw that!

From The Bride… Taylor and I met when we were young kids growing up in a small town of Washington. We were high school sweethearts who separated soon after leaving home for college and remained strangers for years thereafter. It wasn’t until a chance encounter that we reentered one another’s lives and embarked on the incredible journey of becoming husband and wife thirteen years later!

A few months prior to our engagement my father tragically passed away. Our wedding was scheduled on the one year anniversary of his passing and we wanted the week to be as much a celebration, as a symbolic rising from the brokenness we experienced just one year prior. We live thousands of miles away from most of our family and friends and desired a destination wedding which afforded our guests a vacation and us an extended period of time to celebrate with the people we love most. Taylor’s grandfather lives in Hawaii and we both spent a considerable amount of time vacationing there through the years. Selecting Maui was an easy decision.

We wanted the event to embody family, friendship and connectedness, culminating in a grand celebration. The week of our wedding would be spent with guests at a beautiful resort, but we wanted our wedding day to be something truly magical. With a background in interior design and architecture, and a deep passion for historic structures, it has been my dream to be married inside a ruin. The moment we stepped onto the Haiku Mill grounds I knew our search was over. It is one of the most special places I have ever experienced. The structure is overgrown with foliage and the owner has seamlessly integrated ancient artifacts she sourced in Europe throughout the grounds. Stepping inside the ruin brought me to tears and our decision was made.We would rent large tour buses and shuttle our guests from a beachside resort into the Maui countryside for our fairytale wedding.

The theme of our wedding was Hawaiian Versailles Garden Party, which was heavily influenced by the nature of our space and the bounty of parisian artifacts sprinkled throughout. We wanted sophisticated elegance with a casual attitude. Guests were encouraged to wear neutral attire and the wedding party followed suite. The groom wore a grey suit with tie and the groomsmen, bridesmen (I had two) and ushers all wore variations of a grey suit ensemble with white collar shirts and rolled sleeves. The bridesmaids wore full length nude sequin gowns, which had an incredible vintage deco feel. I chose to wear a form fitting lace mermaid dress and a long cathedral veil.

As the owner of an interior design firm, 30 Collins, I took great pleasure in bringing our vision to life. I designed and handcrafted every detail of our day down to the website, invitation suite, maps, programs and cards to inform guests of our special day. I used a handwritten cursive script for all text on heavy white watercolor paper and drew a whimsical map to include in the package. The collateral was a wonderful window into what guests could expect for our big day.

Although our wedding was not held on the beach, the ocean has significant meaning to Taylor and myself. Just prior to the ceremony we made the short drive to a remote outcropping and spent our last few moments together alone with the ocean before becoming husband and wife. Our photographer, Bryce Covey and Videographer, Love & You Video, followed us down to capture the very intimate moment. The experience and resulting photos still take my breathe away.

Our wedding day was one of the most magical of my life and an experience I will forever cherish. Taylor and I were incredibly blessed to be surrounded by so many family and friends who traveled so far in support of our love and celebration of the next chapter in our lives together. Of the innumerable magical moments which occurred that day, one of the most memorable was in the form of a giant rainbow which greeted us upon being pronounced husband and wife. I knew it was a special gift from my father to signal his joyful blessing and it will remain one of the most treasured memories of that once in a lifetime day.

From Love & You Video…We feel so lucky to have filmed Nicole & Taylor’s wedding. They chose to have a destination wedding in Maui, at Haiku Mill, one of the most unique and sought-after wedding venues in Hawaii. Once a real Sugar mill, now breathtakingly beautiful event venue. It’s like stepping back in the time and getting surrounded by elegance and beauty.

Video was very important to the couple, specially since brides grandmother was not able to be a part of their special day, we felt a big responsibility to capture every important moment as perfectly as their wedding was so the grandmother can feel like she was a part of it too.

Everyone can see how good looking the couple are, supermodel gorgeous! Not only that, just watch the video to see how strong the love is between them and how happy they are to be marrying each other.

From Studio A+QThere is a reason people come to Provence to celebrate love. Something magical and enchanted happens when two lovers promise themselves to each other under the dreamy light of a soft spring afternoon in Provence.

They will whisper je t’aime mon chéri as they sit gazing out over the sun-drenched landscape that has inspired painters and pioneers for, not years… but centuries. They will relish the sweet, honey-like smell of surrounding almond flowers, as its cradles them into a state of pure bliss. They will sip a divine glass of rosé chilled to perfection and made with the grapes of the vines that are just a few steps away. They will stop their clocks and drift into timelessness, that place where the soul must go to restore itself.

Provence is a haven of natural beauty, and lavender and olive trees are not its only asset. The almond trees of Provence are among the first to blossom in March, and their beautiful delicate white flowers blossom for a period of two to three weeks, just before the cherry trees begin to showcase their soft pink flowers.

Kelina & Romain fell in love all over again on this dreamy afternoon among the almond blossoms of Provence. A group of immensely talented local vendors came together to imagine how this day would look, and with the help of almond producer Monsieur Jaubert (“Jo-bear”) and L’Occitane, what was at first simply an incredibly beautiful vision of love and romance in Provence, turned into reality.
