I’m eager for an invite to a destination wedding, to attend a celebration like this one here, combining classic elegance with fantastic local flavors. Wedding Venues in Spain took the groom’s heritage and creatively incorporated it with his bride’s stylish eye, and what we get is perfection. Agata Jensen captured it all and I’ll be adding Andalucia to my wanderlust list purely from these photos right here.
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.
