We’ve organised a lot of weddings over the years but I don’t think I’ve ever seen a happier bride! Kristina was literally jumping for joy all day! And Nic was too!
Coming from the states this lovely couple organised a whole host of events for their guests in Granada. They started the week with a rehearsal dinner at the restaurant in the Hotel Palacio de Mariana Piñeda. A number of their guests were also staying staying there and at their sister Hotel Casa Capitel Nazari . These 2 hotels offer great accommodation in the heart of the Arabic quarter of Granada.
The wedding day finally arrived with the bride and groom getting ready at the hotel with their bridesmaids and groomsmen but in separate rooms of course!
Before the ceremony the wedding party went to the Mirador de San Nicolas for a photo session with the emblematic Alhambra making a stunning back drop.
The guests arrived at the Carmen de los Chapiteles to a Cava reception and took their seats to await the wedding party. Kristina used one of the rooms at the Carmen to quickly freshen up before the wedding ceremony.
The bride could barely hide her excitement as she made her way down the aisle with her father.
The beautiful flowers were provided by Nerine Arte Floral.
The ceremony was performed by a friend of theirs who had flown over from the United States with them.
After the ceremony the happy couple took a walk around the Carmen de los Chapiteles with their photographer Callie Richards while their guests enjoyed drinks and canapes on the terrace enjoying the views of the Alhambra and the Albaicin.
The Spanish guitarrist Armando played during both the ceremony and the cocktail hour.
After the cocktail hour and wedding photo shoot the guests took their seats in the dining room and the bride and groom made a spectacular entrance!
After dinner the bride and groom cut the delicious cake provided by Lussocake. They then enjoyed speeches from friends and family.
Before hitting the dance floor the bride and groom and their guests stepped outside for some fresh air and to enjoy the sunset and the view.
The evening then changes pace with the first dance and, the father daughter dance and the mother son dance. Soon everyone was on the dance floor to the fabulous sounds of the Wall Street Band!
Congratulations Nic & Kristina!
