Wedding Breakfast & Party

The threat of rain prompted a last-minute marquee setup, seamlessly blending with the villa’s charm. The dinner area, adorned with lights, hosted an intimate feast featuring paellas cooked live. Speeches, dessert, and a 4-hour open bar unfolded. Kmiss’s live set and DJ session carried the party into the early hours, ending with late-night snacks before minibuses whisked guests away at 2am.

In the rustic charm of inland Spain, Cynthia and Dan’s wedding was a day filled with love and laughter. The last-minute marquee brought a touch of spontaneity, showcasing the flexibility and adaptability that made the day uniquely theirs.
