We’re sharing a very special wedding with you all today — this gorgeous, intimate Spanish wedding was shared to us by one of our very own Wedding Party readers! Amaia and her husband, Javier, were married in the historic city of Pamplona in Spain. Friends and family surrounded them for the big day and contributed in such special ways — Amaia’s son walked her down the aisle, her best friends officiated the ceremony, and Amaia herself decorated her reception with colorful, bright decor! The entire day was captured beautifully by Javier de Pablo.
A few words from the bride:
“We got married in a civil registrar ceremony the previous day with our mothers as witnesses, but Saturday was our big day! I asked my best friends to prepare an intimate and personal ceremony and they came up the most beautiful, funny, touching and emotional ceremony. Another friend of mine was in charge of the music and together with other two friends played beautiful songs. We also had an “aurresku” which is a basque dance in honor of the newlyweds.
The weeding was held on a magnificent 18th century palace converted into a hotel, located in the old part of Pamplona. The ceremony and reception took place on the inner courtyard of the palace which I decorated myself with huge balloons, pom-pons, confetti, etc. After the ceremony there was a reception, followed by a five course lunch in one of the salons upstairs. After lunch we had music and partied until late.
We had a beautiful sunny day, an amazing ceremony, and a day full of joy and laughter. I danced until I couldn’t bear it and then danced barefoot! We had so much fun.”

It’s easy for brides to spend so much time thinking about their wedding day, that once it’s all over it seems like a dream!

Sure, there’s simple things you can do like drying your bouquet or using the lace from your veil in a special item of clothing, but why not go for something with an immediate wow factor? Something like… a custom fashion illustration of you in your wedding dress?
