Manhattan Gown – Rebeca & Daniel

Pazo de Sergude is a Galician ancient house and a historical place that has beautiful gardens and is inside of a magical Atlantic forest near the ocean. We chose it because we thought that it’s the best place to create a Galician wedding and it seemed like fairy tale forests.
Juanlu Rojano. I’ve been looking for a natural and creative photographer who can capture emotional wedding moments. Now, I think that I made the right selection. All wedding photos are art, but the best thing is that they’re an emotional flashback to moments of our wedding day.
Bo & Luca MANHATTAN gown.
I had a clear idea of my wedding dress one year ago when I started to think about my wedding style. I started to create an inspiring board on my Pinterest page with a lot of boho wedding dresses and wedding boho designs, too. I wanted an artisan design that seemed vintage and represents my personality. I think the MANHATTAN is an elegant but sexy design too. When I tried it on for the first time, I knew immediately that it will be my wedding dress. It was an electrifying and emotional moment that I’ll remember all my life.
Our engagement story is so funny and romantic. We were on holiday in Italy. When we were in Venezia, Dani proposed on a typical “góndola” at the Venetian Grand Canal. It was a cold sunset in December with a full moon. It was an emotional and magical moment. He chose a beautiful Tous ring with my favorite gems (Ivette ring. Winter 2017 Tous Collection).
Our rings are from artisans from Santiago de Compostela (Galicia). There is an ancient tradition at this Galician city that remains today. They’re goldsmith masters of silver and “azabache”. We want to have a Galician design that reminds us of home.
We created a chocolate gift set from a famous chocolate pastry shop and master called “El Molino” from our city, Vigo. We chose beautiful packaging with an artistic painting of two kids playing at the Vigo beach and with the “Islas Cíes” behind.
FLOWERS & BOUQUETS
We worked with the wonderful florist’s Ai, Carmiña! They created a magical atmosphere for our wedding ceremony in the woods. I love the colour ultraviolet so all floral arrangements and my bouquet were violet, pink, and green with Atlantic ferns. All these colours represent savage mountain Galician flowers.
Our first dance song was “You and I” by Michael Bublé. The music was one of the most important things for me. So, I’ve been creating a Spotify playlist since we got engaged with all songs that we were listening to since Daniel and I started our relationship.
For us, it was to see all of our family and friends full of joy together at our wedding.
ADVICE FOR BRIDES-TO-BE
I think every bride deserves to enjoy the wedding planning process once she’s engaged. The wedding day passes so fast and then, they could feel a bit disappointed and later so sad. It depends on the bride’s personality, of course, but in my opinion, all brides are so nervous that day and there are a lot of things that we didn’t remember. And the most important thing: be the bride that you always dreamed of being. It’s your wedding!
