Colorful + Chic Spanish Villa Wedding

From kicking off the festivities with their rehearsal dinner, to uniting a global guestbook in Spain, this impossibly cute couple tied the knot with plenty of style. Amongst cobblestone streets and colorful houses, Sandra Åberg captured their emotional ceremony complete with a traditional exchange of coins. Holland Flowers adorned the evening at Villa Poniente, and you can see it all here!

From Sandra Aberg… This impossibly cute couple chose to bring their friends and family from all around the world to the most quaint little chapel in an area of Marbella known as La Virginia to tie the knot with a collision of American, Dutch/Flemish, and Spanish traditions and style.

The cobblestone streets and colorful houses made the perfect backdrop for the bride’s walk to the church with her father. An emotional and extremely warm ceremony was capped off with a traditional exchange of coins.

The reception was held at the gorgeous Villa Poniente, where the bride and groom spent an entire week with their friends enjoying everything that Marbella has to offer. On the day of the wedding, the grounds at the villa were transformed into an outdoor lounge, complete with large pillows and cosy blankets to add a moroccan boho feel. Giant teepees and countless lanterns added to the ambience throughout the night.

The laid back couple was anything but traditional and a classic Austin Mini Moke was their choice for a wedding car. They had a blast bombing around the streets of Marbella in that little thing, and it was so fun to see a couple who dared to just be themselves and do things their way.

It goes without saying that this couple’s engagement session and rehearsal dinner, kept the same theme were just as incredible as their wedding day.

Seaside Spanish Engagement Session & Rehearsal Dinner

I love the idea of having a fun photo shoot to kick off your wedding weekend. This adorable couple was already dressed up and in a celebratory mood, as Sandra Aberg captured their smiles and the stunning Spanish sights, before their rehearsal dinner where wine was poured and toasts made. We’re getting a look at all the amazing festivities that happened the next day at their wedding later on today but for now, I’m quite happy to plant myself here and soak up every perfect pre-wedding pic.

From Sandra Aberg… We met Jessica & Ian on the beach. They looked so cute in their boho chic outfits and I think it comes through in the images just how much they enjoy each other’s company. We got to ride through the streets of Marbella with them in the back of their Austin Mini Moke. And we even managed to squeeze in some photos in the famous Porta Banus harbour on an 80 year old sailboat and a six story yacht.

Jessica & Ian’s rehearsal dinner was one for the ages. The dinner was held at Ian’s father’s summer home, so far up on the hill that you can see Morocco on a clear day. The sprawling backyard was adorned with countless blooming African lilies. Guests were treated to a welcome drink and snacks, and a horse and dog show by Santi Serra Camps, and a meal with an incredible selection of food. Long tables were decorated with rosemary and lemons and candles on the sand that had been brought in and transformed the tennis court into a beach setting.

Highlights included the many speeches by the couple’s friends and family. Ian’s father gave the couple a gold bottle of Armand de Brignac Ace of Spades champagne, which he mentioned hip hop stars like Jay Z quite like, so that everyone at the dinner could toast the couple properly.

From The Bride… Oliver and I met in Marbella while I had been visiting my parents during a university holiday break eight years ago. Ever since, we have been coming back to Spain several times a year and Marbella quickly became our “special place” which now almost feels like a home away from home. So we didn’t have to think twice when it came to picking our wedding location. With its perfect climate, beautiful nature, and given our very special personal history, Marbella was the ideal place for our summer destination wedding. We wanted an alfresco ceremony and celebration and simply loved the idea of spending some quality time at the beach with all our closest friends and family prior to the big day.

For the wedding itself we envisioned an intimate and elegant affair with great music and lots of amazing food. Having a great & memorable night with all our friends was the number one priority. So we were looking for a venue offering enough privacy and allowing us to dance under the stars until the early morning hours. When our wedding planner Lucia first showed us around the Finca we were blown away by the breathtaking views and landscape. It was the most perfect backdrop and more than we had dreamt of.

We kept the décor very classic and chic and added just a few rustic touches to incorporate the natural surroundings of the venue. The reception was set amidst gorgeous olive trees, decorated with hanging fairy lights and chandeliers. We chose a soft white and nude palette with hints of green, as we wanted everything to look very organic and natural against the background of the dramatic mountain panorama and olive tree groves.

We flew in the most amazing band from Berlin, who kept our multicultural German-Russian-Jewish crowd dancing all night long. Our caterer created an incredibly delicious wedding menu including show cooking stations and the most insane dessert buffet featuring all kinds of cakes, chocolates, mousses and macarons you could possibly imagine. Thanks to Lucia and her incredibly talented team, every little detail of the day was perfectly planned and put together with so much taste and elegance. Everyone worked so hard to turn our vision and ideas into the best and most beautiful day of our lives. Looking back it still feels like the most amazing dream and we are so happy to have shared this memory with so many of our friends and family members.

From Caprichia Weddings & OccasionsShilpa & Eguiar are an amazing couple full of energy and a positive vibe. From the minute they contacted me, I just wanted to find a dream venue for them. I couldn’t help falling in love with the idea of blending the Indian, Spanish and American cultures, and celebrating a traditional Indian ceremony within a garden party feel. Having achieved such a highlight in their lives is truly fulfilling.

From the beautiful Bride…Eguiar and I both met in grad school at Georgetown University. We started off as good friends and over the course of a year started to develop less platonic feelings for one another. From the beginning of the relationship, I think both of us sensed that this was a relationship for the long haul. About two and a half years of dating, we both grabbed a drink after a friend’s holiday party and started joking about what our wedding would look like. After a few drinks, we both looked at each other and couldn’t find any reason to not make it happen right away.

Eguiar was born and raised in the Canary Islands of Spain, and my parents were Indian immigrants that came over to the US in their 20s. We wanted to honor both our Spanish and Indian heritages, recognizing that at times they can be diametrically in opposition of one another. Spain seemed like a perfect midpoint for my relatives in India and friends in the US, while making it easier for his friends and family to travel. We settled on Marbella, Spain for its proximity to the beach, mountains and the oft-visited sites of Sevilla, Granada and Morocco.

In true Indian style, the wedding was a five-day affair, starting off with a backyard party on that Wednesday and ending with a beachside brunch on Sunday. There was a sangeet and mehndi party, as well as flamenco and traditional Andalucian horse dancing. However, for the wedding, I wanted the actual ceremony and reception to feel like an intimate backyard party, which was definitely a challenge with 240 guests coming in from all over the world.

Lucia, our wedding planner, found us the most stunning venue I have ever seen in my life, which was cliffside off the mountains, overlooking the Mediterranean Sea, Gibraltar and the coast of Morocco. I was adamant that the Hindu ceremony, dinner and dancing all be outside. The landscape was too perfect to take second fiddle to formalities. We started off the groom’s baraat (the Indian procession by horse) by the gate of the house to the mandap (the traditional Hindu altar for wedding ceremonies). After our ceremony, guests had cocktail hour overlooking the Costa del Sol and the valley near the pool of the house. Dinner and dancing took place on top of a grassed terrace that oversaw the residence and the distant twinkling lights coming from the coast of Africa.

We had long tables in front of the dancefloor that way people could mingle, get to know each other and feel like they were having dinner with old friends. You could hear Spanish, English and Hindi circulating among our guests. It was truly a multicultural gathering in every sense. Lucia perfectly captured the garden party feel that I was going for, by integrating local flowers on the table, customizing menus for each of the guests with their name, and hanging lanterns over the dancefloor.

There is so much emphasis on throwing a dream wedding, which is silly, but I’m fairly certain that the wedding was as close to what I imagine heaven would be – family, friends, good food, great drinks, stunning location, and dancing until sunset.

I cannot tell you how much the wedding was a hit. I still get emails from Indians, Spaniards and our friends telling them that it was a once in a lifetime experience. People have said that sincerely it was one of the most beautiful, unique weddings and that all throughout Saturday folks would say things like “they have thought of everything; they have thought of all these details”. All of these comments are due to you and your teams execution.

And there is much credit due to your patience and your imagination in blending the Indian elements so perfectly. The mandap and everything surrounding the ceremony was just ideal. I cannot say enough about the venue, too. People were OBSESSED with the view from the cocktail hour, making jokes like “could you see Africa when you got married??”. I can just tell you have such perfect instincts for memorable moments.

I am so grateful to have worked with you and I am just in awe of your great ethic, your amazing classiness, your response to everything. You created the highlight of not only mine and Eguiar’s life but of our parents, too.

From Sandoval Studios Photography… Luica and David were a delightful couple who wished to create their dream day here in Marbella combined with a touch of luxury and style. Working with this criteria we located a stunning luxury villa set in the hills behind Marbella, providing the perfect venue for their wedding day. As it was a smaller wedding party, the courtyard was the perfect setting for their dinner reception and the magical gazebo area already in the gardens was a beautiful location for the ceremony. Luica and David loved the different areas we could use for their wedding day and the property offered a lot of privacy so they could relax and enjoy their day with their close family and friends.

Florals were high on Luica’s agenda and the talented Pedro Navarro and his team created stunning floral displays using Juliet roses, white peonies and ranunculus combined with lace draped over the main table and plenty of vintage styling from the chairs to the extra props drafted in for the day, the overall style was pure romance.

We loved the watercolour and calligraphy stationery created for the day by the Design House of Moira which matched the original invitations and each place setting had a beautiful menu and placecard which was pinned to a peach. I do love combining florals with fruits and this was done perfectly.

The candy bar created by Dulce Serendipia and our cheese table were styled with the same romantic theme and us girls even managed to sneak a bit of glitter in! Mar from Romance Weddings created some fabulous cocktail stirrers, paper flowers and vintage props, we always love her attention to details and styling, especially when it comes to taking the photographs. A girl after our own heart!

The gorgeous wedding cake, that I was banned from going near, was designed and created by Sweet Things By Fi, it looked stunning and had been designed to match Luica’s dress, sadly I did not get to test it on this occasion!

Luica’s dreamy dress was from Chaviano Couture, we swooned when we saw Luica appear from her dressing room and David looked equally handsome in his Hugo Boss suit.

A wonderful day was had by our charming couple along with their families and friends who partied well into the evening.
