La Boda [Part One]

Leading up to our wedding trip, we were essentially stress free. We had some nervousness for the travel itself, but the wedding seemed effortless. I was so thrilled it was finally here and my expectations were relatively low. Just vacation with our family, right? Luckily we won’t feel too judged if something completely unravels. Upon our arrival in Spain, we met our gracious hosts at the villa. They spoke pretty much zero english, but were so nice. We were handed a piece of paper that had the house address, taxi phone number, and wifi password. All we need right? We were like kids running around this place checking out all the rooms, the views, everything. To give you a glimpse, this was our house.

A.maz.ing.

On Sunday after most our family arrived, we start walking around the villa. Should we do the ceremony here? How about here? Whats a photo look like here? Can we remove this large glowing lamp? No? That’s ok. We eventually landed on a spot and got back to drinking cava.

The next day we go into town and meet the florist (pretty happy we didn’t end up taking this task on ourselves). We walk around her shop and little by little start grabbing flowers for the bouquet, crown, etc. Just like that the flowers were chosen, took all of 30 minutes. So insanely talented…them, not me…I just nodded and smiled…Peonies?

Later that day we took photos on the beach and ended the night with traditional paella cooked at the villa while we geared up for the following day.

My mom and I started the wedding day at a local coffee shop, we walked the streets as all the little stores were opening and made our way to the florista to see the absolutely gorgeous flower crown. After that, we strolled down the street to the salon to officially start the fun with everyone. I’ll leave you here with the photos, as you can see the day progress through them much better than I can write. Next week I’ll post the remaining photos of our day. It was so impossible to narrow them down!!

La Concha Beach

Ahhh, La Concha Beach…take me back. We wanted to get some casual photos aside from our wedding day and Imanol (our amazing photographer) thought this would be the perfect spot. He obviously knew what he was talking about. I love these photos, they capture our family dynamic so well. In Imanol’s words…

We don’t discover anything new if we say that Donostia is a destiny chosen by many Americans to spend part of their holidays in Europe. In this case, a walk along La Concha (San Sebastian) beach is essential. This was the perfect excuse to do a prewedding session with Jordan, Nick and their family the day before the wedding. But, in order to avoid repeating patterns, they forgot about usual posed engagement sessions and suggested us to do a documentary approach that suited perfectly with our photography style in KissBill. So, without fears of getting wet or full of sand, we followed this gang along the shore, while the American middle west charm appeared little by little.

So many good photos it was impossible to choose! This day was so fun and casual. We all took a stroll along the beach and then found ourselves at a local bar. We ended the day with traditional paella and (more) champagne at the villa. I’ll go into more details about the wedding in my next couple posts, I’m so excited to share all the photos! We had an unbelievable week in San Sebastian, I cannot recommend this city enough. The people, the beauty, the food, it’s incredible.

At Home | Master Bedroom

Last but not least, our bedroom! This is the first time I’ve shared photos of our master bedroom. It was always a work in progress, never quite perfect. We finally finished it up in December and it’s been great for us. The beautiful photos are thanks to Sarah Sweeney. Miss a post? Catch up with our Living Room and Kitchen.

I’m thrilled that it’s already March! Spring can’t get here soon enough. Off to Nashville this weekend for a much needed trip with my gal pals.

All for now!

At Home | The Kitchen

When Nick and I started our apartment search a couple years ago, we liked two different apartment layouts in our building. The kitchens were both huge which I LOVED. The one we chose had what I call a ‘nook’, which is basically a ‘U’ shape enclave adjacent from the kitchen. The other layout had a built in desk and was a little bigger. I loved the nook, I knew it was intended for a small round dining table but I had other plans. Those plans were a hammock chair. After a few too many umbrella drinks in Key West,  I decided to go for it and purchase one. I was so excited. After returning, hammock in hand, we tried to hang it. Long story short, the building structure wasn’t what we anticipated and there was no way to hang the hammock securely. Now the hammock sits in our spare closet. Know anyone with a need for a hammock chair?

After our third failed attempt at drilling into the ceiling, I shifted my expectations and moved on to other things.. like bar carts, record players, and shoe storage. The result looks great and is also practical for us.
