Because the bride and groom have Puerto Rican and Greek ancestry respectively, their family and friends are used to destination weddings all over the world, and they often find the opportunity to travel and live unique experiences. For this incredibly day, the couple chose Spain as the destination - specifically Marbella, a coastal city with all the charm of the Mediterranean and a unique city where a multitude of nationalities used to luxury reside.

In 1837, one of the first foundries in Spain was built in a beautiful natural setting that included a small Andalusian village where the workers who worked at the foundry lived. When the foundry ceased its activity, the village was completely abandoned by its inhabitants and quickly became a village in ruins. The current owner of this property, through careful restoration work and collaboration with local craftsmen and artists, turned these ruins into the most beautiful Cortijo of the Costa del Sol. Today this magnificent property offers a landscape of centuries-old palm trees, avocado, custard apple, orange, and orange plantations, as well as a sea of almond trees.
In the heart of this environment, a splendid manor house sits, whose portal was the entrance of a church built 2 centuries ago. Beyond that are still the remains of the ruins of the foundry that gave rise to this place.
The bride and groom both wanted a cosmopolitan, minimalist. and pure style for the decoration. All elements needed that "wow" effect. They designed a ceremony where the simple decoration enveloped the couple and all eyes were directed at them. For the flowers, the florist incorporated Tibet roses, Amaranthus, hydrangeas, orchids, all atop black metallic bases.
For dinner, they created an impactful ambiance. The central round dance floor was a covered pond in the garden with tables placed around it and the music group at one end. Everything was part of the same space, where guests could dance before, during, and after dinner. Micro LED lighting cascaded from 5m high and managed to enlarge the space, creating a spectacular effect - especially from the drone's view. The pure white tables were decorated mainly with candles, and the stationery had modern typographies and minimalist packaging.
The Greek culture - of course - could not be left out! During the dancing portion of the reception, there were several moments of Greek music, the breaking of traditional dishes, and other essentials. The next day all of the guests commented that it had been the best wedding they had been a part of, which is all the couple asked for!
