A destination Hacienda San Rafael wedding. That’s such a surreal dream!
Have you ever imagined that? This is about travelling overseas, bringing your family and closest friends with you, IN SUMMER, enjoying a wonderful place or several places, celebrating love and having new adventures and memories with those people who you love most. That’s the essence of a destination wedding.
That’s exactly what Kelsey and Dan had in mind for the day of their dreams, and they made it! “Best wedding ever!”. They repeated these words again and again the day after. They chose Seville because Kelsey already knew the city from her trips during college time. So the day had come to discover the south of Spain together with Dan for their wedding.
This Hacienda San Rafael wedding was the perfect event for their intimate wedding. Everyone was pretty relaxed during the preparations. You can tell that their best friends surrounded them!
The wedding ceremony was officiated by Gary, the father of the bride. Emotions started to arrive during the readings and especially during the exchange of vows.
This wedding had various twists that gave me as photographer a fresh perspective. One of the most curious and beautiful details that I have learned was that the bride wore the wedding dress that belonged to her grandmother who married in 1953. She is the fourth generation of ladies in her family to wear it on the wedding day. The names of all of brides were embroidered in blue from inside part the dress. Isn’t that amazing? Namely such unique stories make me love my job as wedding photographer.
The wedding party in Hacienda San Rafael was super fun. Both bridesmaids in red and groomsmen in black were the best. The sunset added magic in those portraits I was capturing with joy with my camera… ah!
Congratulations Dan and Kelsey!
