A Wedding at a Hippodrome and Giant Laser Robots

The photographer Cecilia contacted me saying: “I shot a wedding at a hippodrome recently, maybe you can like it?”. Well, good guess! And I didn’t know yet this wedding also had a Jenny Packham bride and—yes—giant led robots at the party. To sum up: a unique venue, stylish & fun bride and groom (ok, the bride’s a stylist), one great party… Welcome on YMFKTB, Lucila & Giulliano! Photography by Cecilia Aiscurri out of Argentina.


The wedding took place on March 30th, 2013 at the Tribuna Oficial del Hipódromo Argentino de Palermo in Buenos Aires, Argentina. And here’s the story of a long-distance relationship that actually worked!

Well.. probably the most significant part of our story is that we survived a 4-year long distance relationship! We met around eight years ago, when I was just out of high school and went out every day for the 3 or so months our dating lasted. It didn’t quite work out the first time around but we knew we would end up together some day. I left Argentina to go study in London and a couple of years (and a couple of other boyfriends and girlfriends after!) we saw each other again when I was at home for the holidays and without even thinking about it we ended up with a 4-year skype-based relationship. He proposed during a friend’s wedding in Rome, I graduated and moved back home with him. A few intense planning months after, we were finally getting married and about to spend the rest of our lives together.. on the same continent!

Regarding the wedding, name one thing you regret… 
I regret trying to save money on the catering service, it was our only disappointment. If you’re putting it all out on that one day, try to have the very best of everything!

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

Everything was our style, down to smallest detail, and that really made it for us. We didn’t do anything we were supposed to do, went with our instinct and it payed off. We are both quite relaxed and although everything looked great and we put a lot of effort into it, the actual event was super relaxed, nothing felt forced or scheduled.
