Two Became One in This Intimate Elopement in Spain

Spain Desert Elopement

Anthony, a painter, and Gabriela, a model, always understood one another’s passions for art and creativity. When it came to their elopement, it was only fitting that they married somewhere that fed their creative spirits: Spain. The couple trusted photography duo Artonico Stories to guide them through the elopement process, along with the help of Yes My Style Weddings.

From their sunrise photoshoot to their sunset ceremony and everything in between, the couple had the wedding of their dreams. It was a day memorializing art, creativity, and most importantly, love.

Gabriela and Anthony’s unforgettable day began with a sunrise photoshoot across Granada, Spain. They spent the morning wandering through the cobblestone streets of the Moorish Quarter. The couple was granted access to the rooftop of an Airbnb, allowing them to soak in the moment in a brand new way.

The magical day concluded with an equally magical meal. The Murallas de Jayrán hotel perfectly exuded every quality that represented the couple themselves. It had visual intrigue, a daring mixture of textures and styles, and yet everything felt perfectly in place.
