We’re finally here babes, literally 2 months after our wedding (26th of April), I’m posting the Wedding Series “finale”! You’ve joined me in the journey from picking the dress on Part I, choosing the rest of the outfits for both of us, bride and groom, in Part II, read the stories behind each of our rings in Part III and finally, you’ll take a glimpse to our ceremonies and party for friends and family in the fourth and final Part of the Series.
Having born in Latin America coming from and Irish and Italian family, it’s only logical to assume I was raised as a Catholic haha. As a way to pay my respects to my family’s beliefs and to also give some spiritual meaning to our union, we decided together to do the religious ceremony, even if either of us is quite religious. It was the right choice as we got really emotional in that moment and at the end of the day, a civil ceremony alone would’ve felt flat for us. I picked a gorgeous gothic church in downtown that is actually breathtaking in real life. To enter down aisle I decided to go with both my mum and my dad on each arm because they both deserved that moment. Prior to entering, of course, I had my little niece Lena as the flower girl and my bffs as bridesmaids <3
When the religious ceremony ended we all headed to the venue, where the registry ceremony and reception were going to happen. The venue was called Samana Wasi, in the outskirts of the city. It was surrounded by gorgeous green mountains in a very peaceful property only 20 minutes away from the Capital.
We decorated the place in rose gold, gold, blush pink and ivory. But yeah, there was a looot of rose gold. Rose gold sequined table runners, “Just Married” and “Mr & Mrs” signs, cake topper and confetti scattering the tables, my décor fantasy was now real! We also had a lovely frame with wooden hearts where the guests could sign instead of the tradition guest book, but unfortunately the photographer didn’t capture that and other little details such as the cake table or the welcome sign, *sighs*.
The food was great (I couldn’t eat dessert tho because I was in the front during the speeches!!) and yes omg, the speeches were so beautiful, some people even cried. After that, a tango show dance, cake, party, sparklers and favors. The night felt like a second! I couldn’t believe how fast the day was going by! We all danced a lot and had lots of fun, my favorite people in the whole world in one place! My family, my friends, my new family and my husband. I felt like everything was worth it all for that moment.
I could go on and on about this beautiful day, big moments, little details, everything. But for everyone’s sakes I’ll stop here, lol! I was just want to say thank you to everyone who was part of this moment and especially to the people who made this possible: my husband’s mum Julie, my sister Paola, my friends who organized the best bachelorette party I could ask for, and last but not least, to my mum. She acted like my double, doing everything I couldn’t do because of the time, not only regarding the wedding itself but also helping me out with the paperwork I had to do to marry a foreigner in my country. J I cherish that day as one of the most beautiful, crazy and sacred days of my entire life.
Thank you guys for reading until the end and in the spirits of love and celebration, cheers!!!
