A SPECTACULAR WEDDING A FEW METERS FROM THE SEA

 

Viktor@Rolf para Farah Novias

 

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.

The Venue 

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.

Bridal Bouquet

whitePeach flowers: A subtle touch of blush makes a statement about your bouquet.

Pink flowers: From pastel tones to bold fuchsia, pink works beautifully as a classic or contemporary choice.

Purple Flowers: A palette of purples offers a modern and feminine option for your big day bloom.

Mixed Flowers: Give your wedding a contemporary feel by opting for a fresh mixed color palette of flowers.

Here Comes the Flowers Girls!

Many brides are more inclined to choose older bridesmaids rather than flower girls, which often means they miss out on a childlike charm. Here is some advice on how to help your little flower girls bloom at your wedding.

Comfort is the Key: Big might be beautiful but try to keep the garland on her head and the posy in her hand

Petal Power: Some flowers are more prone to bruising under the touch of small fingers so make sure you choose closed flowers like roses and ponies that are more likely to withstand the pressure.

Robust is a Must: you have to come to terms with the fact that your flowers may end up being thrown on the ground and possibly trampled on so don’t invest a lot of money on the flowers that the little ones will carry.

The Dream Factor: Even if your wedding style is practically perfect and polished in every way, you need to allow a little bit of freedom to your flower girls to play their special role

Blue and White, Perfect Wedding Palettes

Add tradition to your wedding by theming up your wedding day with fun, floral and frilly blue items. The dreamy white clouds and powder-blue sky are the perfect palettes for your wedding. Both white and blue have been the love of brides for many centuries.

“ Marry in blue, lover be true” was a popular refrain in the early 1800s. The blue colour also represents innocence. In 1840, Queen Victoria chose to wear white for her marriage to Prince Albert and since then brides have followed on wearing white. The blue and white colour scheme is truly romantic and charmingly fresh.

Look on nature and everyday objects to get ideas for your wedding and use them to theme your own wedding in blue and white.
