Indie Northern Spain Wedding: Carolina + Alberto

spain bride and groom

Here’s some gorgeous inspiration for those of you looking for a short engagement – Carolina + Alberto planned their wedding in just one month! Not their original plan, but due to a new job + upcoming move, a month was all they had, so they made it work. And their wedding was just as sweet + lovely as can be!  Their ceremony was held in a charming, overgrown garden courtyard and a 1930’s style jazz band lead the way as guests paraded through the winding village streets to the reception venue. In Spain, weddings are still largely marked by deep-seated tradition, so Carolina + Alberto’s day was a fun breath of fresh air and is sure to inspire so many couples there (and everywhere!) to put their own personal spin on their celebration! Here’s a bit more from the beautiful bride:

We wanted to make something outdoors, casual, and closer to a friends and family party than to a formal wedding. We also wanted live music to be an important part of the wedding, as going to gigs and festivals is one of our biggest common interests. Also, as I am an architect I’m constantly following blogs on architecture, design, etc. So we got some ideas from them.

Thanks so much to People Producciones for sharing Carolina + Alberto’s gorgeous wedding with us today and congratulations and best wishes to the newlyweds!

There was a parade with a friend of ours' marching band, from the tiny village we got married to the monastery the venue was at. It was sunset and we passed gorgeus crop fields and vineyards.

It was very important to Carolina + Alberto that friends + family played a big role in their wedding day. Carolina’s dress, which I absolutely adore, was made by a friend and her bouquet + floral crown were designed by a local florist, who also happened to be a good friend of her mother’s!

The reception was held outdoors under an abundance of string lights and was reminiscent of a family dinner. Such a beautiful setting!

Do not stress out. We had to marry on a Friday because it was the only day available, which is crazy unusual in Spain. People were very supportive about the date and the time constraints. You may be very surprised to find out that your father makes a hell of a wedding planner!
