Our Wedding

September 4, 2017
I'm really excited to share with you our wedding photos today. We said "I do" on the 22nd of July in a traditional Catholic ceremony followed by a reception at one of the most extraordinary historic hotels on the Old Continent which was built in the 16th century: Parador de San Marcos. Many people had advised us to make the most of this day because it was going to go so fast and they weren't exaggerating at all. Time flew. If someone told me the whole thing had only lasted two hours I'd believe them. That's how fast time went.

One of the most special parts of the wedding was sharing it with the people we love the most. I'd have never thought that one day I'd gather friends from different backgrounds, even from different countries! My former host family and my best friend came from California (in case you missed it, you can read my au-pair story here), my best friend from childhood who is currently living in Hungary came too. Knowing that people are willing to travel so many miles to be with you on your special day makes me feel so loved.

Let me tell you a bit about the dress. I got it from Spanish brand Pronovias. I didn't search a lot for it, it's actually the first and only store I went to. I tried a few dresses on and finally chose this princess dress with a sweetheart neckline. I loved the lace floral motifs, with guipure and gemstones cascading all over the body.

You already know how much I like to support Spanish fashion so everything I was wearing was from Spanish brands: the dress, the shoes and the jewelry.

On last week's post I gave you a sneak peek of the shoes, but you can get a better look at them here. As I already told you they are from Castañer and I chose them because of their comfort, quality and the fact that I'll be able to use them again.

Many people complimented me on the bouquet because of it's originality. The flowers are peonies accompanied by some plants that are out of the ordinary. I wish I could have kept it fresh forever!
