When our American bride and groom, Ana and Dan, flew over from California and took a vacation in Marbella, during August last Summer, they fell in love with the lifestyle, weather and the Spanish culture. Dan, who was born in Sweden, and Ana in Latvia, knew that their wedding location needed to in a country where European and international travel would be easy for their friends and family.
To arrange any wedding in 3 months can be challenging, however, both Ana and Dan had decided they wanted their dream Wedding in Spain and with the support of the Sunshine Weddings Spain team, their perfect wedding venue in Spain was found and the arrangements began.
For their wedding venue in Spain, they chose a boutique hotel with 22 rooms where their guests could stay for 3 nights, located beside a natural park and very private with her own chapel. Whilst the setting for this wedding venue in Spain was completely stunning and rustic Ana wanted to add her own personal touches to the décor, so as wedding planners in Spain, and with contacts with some fabulous service providers, the Skype calls began with the Sunshine Weddings Spain stylist to start designing the flowers and colours for the bridal bouquets and table arrangements as a starting point.
A detailed check-list was compiled between our wedding planner in Spain, Scott, and Ana, so it was understood all her special requirements. Within the first week she had confirmed the minister for the ceremony, wedding photographer, and all the music requirements including; a Spanish guitarist, Flamenco show and a soul and Motown band, and most importantly for our bride in Spain, her make up and hair stylist.
Each week, during the 12-week period of planning this wedding in Spain, Ana spoke with our wedding planner in Spain for 30 minutes on Skype whilst we progressed the check list and organised the structure of each day.
All the guests were contacted and the numbers began to increase from 35 to an eventual 50, none her friends and family wanted to miss this opportunity to be at this amazing wedding in Spain..
Ana arrived several days before Dan, and all the final details at their wedding venue in Spain were confirmed including the food tasting and the hair and make up trials. There were 3 days of back-to-back appointments with Scott and Ana, and by the close of day 3 the check-list and timing schedule were complete.
The day of the wedding arrived and the October sun shone through, the weather was sunny and warm and all the wedding guests waited in excitement and anticipation. The scene was set with Ana and her bridesmaids who dressed in unison to match the flowers and décor Ana and the team had worked so hard to achieve. And so the procession started and the wedding in Spain began.
In less than 12 weeks an American bride had organised her own wedding in Spain with the help of Sunshine Weddings Spain who were very happy to be a part of Ana’s special day.
“Thank you Ana for letting us be a part of such a wonderful wedding it was great to have been given the challenge and to have seen a perfect ending to your wonderful wedding in Spain” from all at Sunshine Weddings Spain
