One of the things Maria was sure about it was that her dress was going to be designed by Rosa Clará. She loves our designs so she combined many of our dresses into one beautiful dress. We love it! She looked comfortable and flawless. It is very important for our personality to be reflected in our dress!
In which church did you get married?
We got married in San Jeronimo El Real in Madrid. We have always liked this place; it’s an emblematic church in Madrid, with a lot of history, we even know the priest who celebrated the ceremony, a reason why we couldn’t get married anywhere else.
During the ceremony we chose a few songs from Mozart, Schubert and Haendel that were interpreted by two sopranos together with the organ of two Jerónimos.
Where did you get ready for the big day?
Ritz Hotel in Madrid
How did you feel when you saw yourself in your dress on your wedding day?
I felt very special, comfortable, the dress was very “me”, and it was noticeable.
How and where did you find your Rosa Clará dress?
I always knew that my wedding dress was going to be from Rosa Clará. I love their designs, they are unique and well maintained; one of the many reasons why I did not doubt on visiting their Flagship in Madrid.
What made you choose this design? Was it the dress of your dreams?
It is not a specific style from any collection, since from every dress I saw there was some detail I liked, this made me realized that I needed a personalized dress; which is a unique dress. I had a clear vision of how I wanted that it didn’t take look to design.
It was two dresses in one. For the ceremony it had an overskirt with the signature Rosa Clará belt; for the reception I detached the skirt and made it more casual and comfortable. It really looked like two dresses in one.
I wanted something traditional, but with a modern touch, and I think I made it happen. The back was made out of tulle with embroidery crystals which were a sensation. Nobody expected such dress! The frontal part of my dress was a reminiscing of my first communion dress.
Does your dress have any modification or did you stay with an original Rosa Clará dress?
At the end my dress had a little from every dress
And what accessories did you use? (Shoes, jewelry)
The shoes, something that also caught a lot of attention, were the classic and modern studded Valentino heels in nude color. I wanted a pair of shoes that I would use for any other occasion.
For the headpiece I had it very clear, I wanted it from Carmen Maria Mayz who is an artesian, and she would be able to create just what I wanted. She designed two headpieces for me; one was a tiara and the other one to hold my veil in the back. They were both handmade with rustic colors and small flowers with crystals and leaves.
As jewels, I wore my tear drop engagement ring from Suarez Jewelry and my earrings were two shinning studs in the shape of flowers designed exclusively by Duran De Madrid jewelry.
For my make-up and hair I hired the amazing Maria de Bajobe, I wanted a fresh and natural look.
What type of flowers did you have on your bouquet? Who did you give it to?
I wanted a simple, very open and colorful bouquet. With pink splash sensation roses, astrantia, trachelium, dianthus, gala and eucalyptus leaves. I gave my bouquet to my husband’s family so they can bring it to San Sebastian cemetery. His dad had passed away 10 years ago and we wanted him to have something from the wedding.
But I also ordered two small bouquets for my two best Friends that are still single. It was a funny moment since they both did not expect it.
Where did the reception take place?
In countryside house called Las Jarillas
Any special or fun moment you remember?
Something that I want to bring up is that all the stationery was designed by us inspired by Venice, the city where we got engaged, so every table had something for this beautiful city that we love. It was a chaos since it took us a long time and effort, but at the end it was worth it.
Something that caught a lot of attention from the guests is that everyone had a personalized letter on the table with a thank you note and a photo of Venice, handwritten by Daniel and myself. We wanted to thank them all for being there with us in this special day. It took us almost a month to finish them, but it was worth to see how surprised they were.
Do you have any advice for future brides?
To enjoy this day to the max, it goes by really fast and when you realize you are on a plane to your honeymoon.
Who was your photographer?
The selection of photographers and videographers is very important. This is why we had no doubt in hiring Instantanea & Tomaprimera.
