Andrea + Dani

Fun Spanish Wedding with a DJ Bride

Every time I see the pictures of this wedding, I feel like listening the one song that really moves me and turn up the sound! I’m also very pleased to make you discover (or rediscover) the work of a great photographer and person – Megan of Bikini Birdie. Here comes Andrea + Dani’s wedding!



Andrea and Dani’s wedding took place on June 9th 2012, at the Buenavista Dénia hotel in Dénia (between Alicante and Valencia in Spain, where Andrea’s parents already got married).



Name one thing you regret…

You’re going to think I’m not telling the truth… but I can’t think of a single thing that I regret. Ok, there is maybe one thing: on the wedding day I woke up at 5 in the morning (I went to sleep at 2!), saw some clouds in the sky and then wasn’t able to sleep anymore. The wedding was meant to take place outside and I was terrified it would rain! Well, guess what? It was great there were clouds because otherwise we would have melted!! But the thing is, I only slept three hours and didn’t look as pretty as I should have! ;)


… And one thing you’re really happy about / proud of.

I knew exactly how our wedding had to be and got to convince my husband to let me take the decisions. The thing is, it turned out to be even more perfect than I could have imagined. My husband feels the same way, though he didn’t even want to have a party at first (now he wants to get married every year)!
One thing I’m really happy about is that everyone felt so relaxed and comfortable; you could really feel that “love was in the air”. I saw my mother and stepmother hugging each other; my father and husband (who had been fighting about the tie of the fiancé for months—Dani didn’t want to wear it and my father thought that this was unforgivable) couldn’t stop crying; and all the guests were dancing as if there were no tomorrow, even the oldest ones!
The next day, a lot of guests told me they had never been to a wedding like that before and didn’t want to go to another one anymore because any other would look boring in comparison… I couldn’t have asked for more.


“fê em Deus, DJ!”

Ladies and Gentlemen… “Here comes the bride!” Y E S !!!! Andrea actually performed a concert during her wedding! Both of them showed up afterwards on stage… I LOVE LOVE LOVE that they appeared wearing hoodies!


Andrea y Dani, sois los mejores, seguid con esa energia toda la vida!

Ligia + Marcelo

Brazilian Vintage Wedding and a DIY Brooches Bouquet

On Rock N’Roll Bride‘s page, we can read: Don’t let the wedding industry define your day – let you define your day, to which I’d like to add that wedding industry now includes wedding blogs. By the time you see some new cool trend on wedding blogs, then maybe we’ll all wanna throw it up the next year. Sorry if I disappoint you, but—just to pick an example—candy bars are kind of the “new traditional”. I’m not saying don’t do anything you see on blogs, or anywhere else; I’m saying make sure it corresponds to you, and still will looking back at your pictures 10 years from now.

I was touched by this wedding for all these reasons. Plus, it teaches that a wedding doesn’t necessarily need a lot of details to have personnality. Ligia e Marcelo, parabéns para um casamento que não vai sair de moda! Photography credit: The Kreulichs.



The wedding took place at Confeitaria Colombo, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.



Name one thing you regret… 

Having decided to not have someone making a video of the day. I think it would have been complementary to the photographs I got.


… And one thing you’re really happy about / proud of

We were satisfied to have only our closest friends and family there to share the day. It was a really small and intimate wedding, in a “sunday lunch” spririt.



Ligia and Marcelo’s wedding day was also the day Ligia’s cousin turned 40. They prepared a surprise on their wedding day to celebrate her anniversary. Isn’t that sweet?
