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.

Organic Al Fresco Mediterranean Wedding Inspiration

This collab of gorgeous from Mireia Cordomí and A todo Confetti had me at ‘Mediterranean’. Aptly so seeing as Spain’s Mediterranean coast has long sat near the top of my wanderlist. But it hasn’t been crossed off yet, so I’m living vicariously through this organic goodness. You can almost feel the warm breeze lifting the linens and the glowing sunshine filtering through. See it all here.

From A todo ConfettiWe are so delighted to share with you this Mediterranean styled shoot full of stunning details and a magic atmosphere specially captured on film by Mireia Cordomí in the depths of the Spain countryside.

Held outdoors in the ancient setting of La Torre del Visco, an exclusive stately 15th country house member of Relais&Châteaux transformed into a unique and romantic hotel surrounded by hectares of olives trees, terraces and patios with fountains located in the beautiful setting of the Tastavins river valley.

A gorgeous wooden warm table with white, silver and plenty of green details complete along with an impressive natural runner of olive branches and seeded eucalyptus, pretty stationery, antique crystal glassware with beautiful blooms, metallic gold detailed plates with cream linen napkins and some aromatic homemade bread besides small olive branches all lit by tall candelabras and set under a romantic arch.

The bride’s style is exquisite and simple consisting of a bulky skirt and a wonderful lace top crop made by Catalan haute couture designer Santos Costura. Heavenly shoes and natural and soft makeup, a low bun with a crown braid across the front, an exquisite headpiece and a wild wedding bouquet. To complement the scene, the sunset beauty light reflects and silver props with lush colorful figs, grapes and pomegranates.

Absolutely, a majestic story behind the images where every single detail is truly amazing and we hope you enjoy and can smell the scent of this Mediterranean dream.

From The Bride… Paul and I met while working together in San Diego. After a year of crossing paths we began dating in 2007. One of the things we love doing most is to travel. We often spent time in Spain to visit Paul’s family as he was born there. On our fourth trip back, Paul surprised me with an excursion to Ronda and a stay at the famous Parador hotel. He walked me out on the balcony and began showing me a video he had made of all of our trips over the last six years, it was absolutely amazing. At the end of the video, he got down on one knee and proposed overlooking the Tajo Bridge. I still get chills just thinking about it!

Paul had suggested I look at wedding venues on this trip as we had discussed a potential wedding in Spain before. Coincidentally I had scheduled an appointment to visit the amazing Cortijo Pedro Jimenez the day after he proposed. Paul and I met with Rachel, walked the grounds and fell in love! Fifteen months later we were lucky enough to have all of our family and friends travel from the states to Spain to have the wedding week of a lifetime. For us it was a picture-perfect location for an intimate reunion and wedding. We were able to enjoy breakfast together, pool parties with our entire guest list, and dinner each night under the stars. With the help of all of the vendors everyday was unique and special. We feel so fortunate to have had our wedding in such an intimate and stunning setting with everyone we love.

From Rachel Rose Weddings… Being a part of Ashley and Paul’s wedding was such a pleasure, they are both such friendly and beautiful people and I was very excited to be planning another long distance Californian wedding in Spain. Ashley’s stunning dress was a light blush colour so we opted with neutrals for the florals with accents of gold which featured in vintage frames for the seating plan and other signage. In honour of Paul’s heritage we decided to bring in some traditional Spanish wedding features such as a sherry pourer and a jamon carver and then some more fun elements were added in the form of the cute little white and gold bull shaped escort cards by Nulki Nulks and the mini bottles of Tio Pepe sherry that were given to the wedding guests as favors.

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 Bodas De Cuento… Julie and Bruno, a French couple living in Barcelona, got married in the stunning Castell de Tamarit, a castle located in Tarragona, 100 km from Barcelona. All the guests came mostly from France and Portugal.

Julie gave much importance to the moment of getting dressed. She dreamed to be dressed by her bridesmaids. Julie also made a gesture towards her ‘girls’ and she gave them a present: a tote bag with lots of girly stuff, such as a vanity kit with their names.

The ceremony took place just in front of the sea with a gorgeous arch of olive leaves and flowers especially made for the occasion. Julie wanted her wedding to have a soft air and that was the reason why all the flowers and most of the decoration elements were pinks and whites. For flowers we used roses, hydrangeas, astilbe… It was very important to have a soft inspiration but representing the Mediterranean style.

During the ceremony there was a balloons release in tribute to their parents. All the guests balloons were white, except Julie and Bruno’s, which were red. It was a very emotive moment, we knew that it was going to be, so we thought it would be perfect to prepare some fabric tissues for the “tears of joy”.

An authentic Cuban band took charge of the music during the ceremony and appetizers.

After the ceremony, our couple went to the beach for a very special photo shoot with a lit staircase. When they came back, they could enjoy the food and music with their guests.

As the food was served as a cocktail, there was a lettering board with all of the menu.

During the dinner, a rock and jazz band called ‘La Soul Machine’ entertained the guests. Also there was a magical tree of memories and a guest book. After the dinner there was a new surprise for all the guest, a vintage caravan of crêpes.

As Julie and Bruno wanted, they could enjoy of the wedding near the sea, a splendid weather and a magical night with hundreds of light garlands hanging from the trees and good live music.

Warm and Cozy Baptism in Spain

Macarena Gea is pretty much the coolest mom on the planet. It started with a sun-filled shower for her sweet baby Mateo on the way and now this cozy, cozy party. It’s a warm and fuzzy Fall celebration for Mateo’s baptism filled with candles, autumnal blooms by La Tartanaa to-die-for dessert bar and a fun guest book too. Check out the full set of images by  Senchermés right here.

From Macarena… Since it was an autumn celebration, I was inspired by this beautiful season for our event design. For the location, we chose Alma del Temple in Valencia’s old town (one of the 100 most beautiful restaurants in the world according to Taschen) and where I have the pleasure to work as wedding planner. Wood, candles, leaves and all kinds of natural materials together with a 100% autumn color palette were the perfect mix for a very cozy and warm atmosphere. Two of the big hits of the day were the dessert table and the signing corner where the guests took pictures and wrote some sweet words to our little baby.
