Garden wedding in the Rain

Garden wedding in the Rain

When we arrived to Maude´s family house in Grasse- France, Manu, the groom, was waiting for us by the driveway. Many friends and family members were already there and they have just finished eating their lunch in the garden. This very same garden was to host a wedding celebration later this evening.

It was a hot summer day, but you could feel storm in the air. It was going to rain without a shred of doubt.  Despite the prediction, every single person gathered in this beautiful old garden shared the same carefree holiday mood. There was a big protective tent installed all over the tables and the dance floor. It was meant to be an outdoor garden wedding and no rain was going to spoil it. Just as everyone went to get ready for church, the heavens opened!

As if on request, the rain stopped for an hour, when the bride was about to come out of the house. It poured again as we all arrived back from the church. Despite all this water, this garden wedding turned into a fantastic part. No one seemed to care that, by the end of the night, the white wooden dance floor looked just like the rest of the muddy garden. Some guests abandoned their shoes and danced knee-deep in the mud as if it was brought there for their pleasure.

Dinner under the stars

Dinner under the stars

This was an elegant “haute couture” wedding designed with style and a great taste!  Every little detail mattered to Maria, the bride to be!

“She thought it all through and had it all under control” – Hugo, the future groom assured us.

When you have a clear vision of what your wedding should look like, do not conform, be persistent and have it your way! Maria managed to have a little chapel opened just for them, she insisted on replacing traditional name cards with carefully selected stones and despite the rain prediction she hosted an outdoor candle diner under the stars. She even kept the wedding venue a secret until the very end.

The most important thing about planning your wedding is to know that the planning ends when the wedding day begins! Maria and Hugo found the happy medium and proved that it is possible to have your perfect wedding vision come true and still fully enjoy playing the leading role on the big day.

They knew how to live and appreciate every single moment! They laughed and cried and danced and laughed even more!

They carefully picked a team of professionals and put themselves in their hands. The wedding planner Claudia & co. from Entre Tonos Pastel was on top of every single detail. The cheery stuff from the venue Xalet del Nin made everyone feel welcome and at home. The catering Sensacions prepared sensational cocktail and dinner under the stars of the Mediterranean Sea.

It was nothing but perfect!

Andreu! Que si estamos recuperados? IMPOSIBLE!!! Seguimos eufóricos, emocionados, flipados,…en definitiva FELICES. Ni en nuestros mejores sueños podíamos imaginar algo así. Y tus fotos DE ESCÁNDALO!!
