We met on July 4, 2010 on the flight from Barcelona to San Francisco, We were seated next to each other and didn’t stop talking during the whole flight. From that day my whole life changed and I realised how love at first sight really feels like.
On July 3, 2021, we got engaged in one of the most beautiful places in the world surrounded by family and friends and finally tied the knot on July 2, 2022 during the most memorable ceremony.
It was an easy decision to hold the ceremony at our own restaurant which I opened with my father, named after my beloved grandmother CATALINA in GAVA Mar. It was a wonderful wedding and an unbelievable day. Natalia from Studio Floral helped us with the most beautiful color palette for the flowers. they really were stunning and complimented the decor perfectly.
My wedding dresses, the best kept secret
Like many brides-to-be at the beginning I was not sure about the style of the wedding dress, however I had a clear idea of the styles that I didn’t like. After looking at many different bridal designers and visiting several ateliers, I felt most comfortable at Farah Novias.
I knew that my wedding gown has to be perfect . I wasn’t looking for a minimalistic dress and always believed that a bride should wear something special. I was looking for a dress that I was going to wear only at my wedding but that I would remember forever.
Farah perfectly understood my needs and requested a specific Viktor&Rolf wedding gown that was traveling on trunk shows. I never felt more special than the moment I first stepped into my wedding dress. It was an iconic moment as I felt instantly that I have found my dream dress. It was clear to me that a pair of Manolo Blahnik would be the perfect match to complement my beautiful wedding dress. I always dreamed of wearing the iconic blue Manolo for my wedding, a pair of shoes that unlike my wedding dress I can wear after the wedding.
I loved the idea of a second dress and after the ceremony I changed into a gorgeous short Viktor & Rolf wedding dress and a pair of white Yves Saint Laurent sneakers. I wanted to be able to dance all night without worrying of getting my dress dirty or dragging my long train around .
It was a wonderful wedding and an unbelievable day. Thanks to Farah and her entire team to make me feel so special in my stunning wedding dress. It made me so happy knowing that my husband loved how I looked in my dress. I had everyone commenting on how wonderful and breathtaking my wedding dress was.
