When our daughter Rosie became engaged last July to Mike she decided that she wanted a wedding that was one step above an elopement with her closest family sharing in her special day. Living in California and with all of our family living in England, it didn’t take long to decide that the celebrations should be in the UK, however, after trying unsuccessfully for a few weeks, it became apparent that it was going to be almost impossible for us to arrange a wedding in England from the US.
My husband came across Sunshine Weddings Spain on line and I sent them an e-mail letting then know what we were looking for. I immediately received a response from Susie with a suggestion for the most perfect location for Rosie & Mike’s small intimate wedding. Susie certainly put the excitement back into the wedding planning for us and before long we had booked the Hacienda in Mijas and had been introduced to Camilla and Scott. From then onwards, the attention to detail was unbelievable. Camilla was so organized and detailed oriented and literally left no stone unturned. We e-mailed backwards and forwards for the next 7 months booking the DJ, photographer, videographer, beautician, cake-maker, Spanish guitarist and florist all on Camilla and Scott’s suggestions. We skyped with Scott many times and even had a face-to-face meeting in the UK in November with him and the Rabbi that he had recommended to us for the ceremony!
By the time we arrived in Spain we were all very excited. We met with Scott the day before and went over all the fine details of how the day would play out. The next day, when we arrived at the stunning Hacienda San Jose, we were greeted by Yvonne who couldn’t have been nicer. She really understood the romantic theme that Rosie and Mike were looking for and decorated the outside areas of the Hacienda with candles and fairy lights throughout, it looked beautiful. That evening a 24 seater bus picked us up and took us into the town of Mijas Costa where we enjoyed the most amazing welcome dinner at the Avanto Restaurant. It was a stunning modern location right on the water. The food was wonderful and our guests enjoyed some impromptu dancing to the live music that the restaurant provided. Mike even sang to Rosie – so romantic.
On the day of the wedding, while all of us ladies were enjoying having our hair and make-up attended to, Scott and his team were busy expediting Plan B due to the imminent threat of rain. A stunning marquee was set up on the grounds and decorated beautifully by Yvonne and the ceremony was moved into the courtyard. The ceremony was so meaningful and beautiful that nobody even noticed that it was raining! The rest of the evening went by way too quickly. The food was incredible and we danced all night long. Everyone was having so much fun that the DJ stayed on and we took the party inside after 11pm. Scott and his assistant guided us through the whole evening and all we had left to do was just enjoy ourselves, which we certainly did!
The following day we hosted a really fun paella party on the stunning grounds of the Hacienda where the Spanish sun came out in all it’s glory.
It was pretty incredible to think that the whole wedding was arranged by e-mails without us ever seeing the location or having met any of the wonderful people who helped make the day so successful. Every single vendor that was suggested to us turned out to be so incredible and professional. We put our trust into Sunshine Weddings and it really paid off. Thank you so much to Scott, Camilla and Susie for making Rosie and Mike’s wedding so amazing. I think Mike said it best when he stated that the wedding had exceeded both of his and Rosie’s expectations beyond what they could have ever imagined!!
