A Destination Wedding Planned From Across the World

If you’re intimidated by the idea of planning a wedding abroad, take notes from this couple, DJ and Lauren. They coordinated their big day on the Spanish island of Mallorca via emails and Skype and did it all without breaking a sweat. Ana Lui captured the pretty from beginning to end with even more to see inside The Vault.

From Ana Lui PhotographyDJ and Lauren met through mutual friends while out in Chicago (where Lauren is originally from). They both were in relationships at the time but stayed in touch and reconnected a couple of years later when the timing was right. DJ was living between Dallas and Chicago and Lauren was living in Chicago. They had a long-distance relationship for a year before Lauren decided to make the move down south (to Dallas) to be closer to DJ.

They chose to get married in Mallorca at beautiful Belmond La Residencia in Deia, which is a small village in the mountains. DJ took Lauren to Deia a few years back and she fell in love with the place.

Since the wedding took place in Spain and was mostly outdoors, the bride and groom really wanted to have a rustic feel. The hotel was an old olive press so they have chosen olive branches incorporated into everything from the bouquets to table settings to the bridesmaid’s headdresses.

For flowers, Lauren chose white roses and freesia flowers with olive foliage. Lauren is more of a minimalist and didn’t want anything to take away from the beautiful backdrop and location. The dinner area was decorated with fresh lemons hand picked from the hotel gardens.

When I asked Lauren about her experience with getting married abroad and planning the wedding via emails and Skype she said it wasn’t as stressful as I thought it would be. Deia is a small village, so allocating the guests and getting everyone out there was pretty straight forward.

From the Bride…To say I was surprised when DJ proposed is an understatement. I had absolutely no idea, which made the day incredibly special and memorable. The proposal took place at DJ’s parent’s house in the country in Scotland. We were taking a walk through the forestry on their property, which is a common activity we both enjoy when we are in Scotland when I noticed he was being a bit quieter than usual. The sun was close to setting and we came to a beautiful little lake. I turned around and he held out the box with the ring. The rest of the evening was a blur.

I never experienced anything like it. It was so peaceful and beautiful yet unpretentious. After thinking of places that had a special meaning to us, Deia stood out.

The best decision was to get married in the church. There were other places we could’ve had the ceremony on the property and around Deia that would’ve been pretty but the church was incredibly historic and beautiful.

From Dreamcatcher Productions… This wedding film was a gift to my new sister in law, the bride, Fiona & my brother the groom, Ronan. Fiona & Ronan met in our home town of Lahinch, on the west coast of Ireland close to 10 years ago. Fiona studied fashion design and is now a London based make-up artist. She designed her own dress.

Ronan is a fashion photographer and fell in love with Deia during many fashion photo shoots along the stunning coast. They choose this location for the stunning quaint little town and it’s super hospitable people, many who are now their friends.

So many of our friends and family came together to make this very special wedding so personal. From beautiful music in the church to decorating the venue with insta-snaps to a rocking DJ who knew the couples taste perfectly. It was a week long party of delicious food & wine. Exploring the stunning coastline along those super fun but crazy roads, rounds of golf & villa parties with sing-songs until dawn. I may be just a little bias but it was one of the best weddings I’ve ever been to and had the pleasure of filming.

The merrymaking of a wedding in such a magic spot like Cap Rocat is definitely fueled with highlight-potential and I fell in love with the location at first sight. So did Yiwei & Yuka, who choose Cap Rocat for their elegant celebration because they loved the mix of untouched nature, old masonry, sea and the laid-back luxury of this impressive 5-star resort.
