We were so fortunate to get a chance to go to Spain and photograph this wedding for such genuinely nice people! Viva el novio y la novia!
Who: Estela and Pablo. They have known each other since high school!
Where: Las Caldas. Asturias, Spain. A tiny little village in the mountains with thermal baths and a sweet hotel that is built around a rock.
We had this whole place all to ourselves, unbelievable. Just us and some stray cats!

this is it! the last night of indian gorgeousness. the evening was more like a western wedding reception, but not just any wedding reception! there were ballet dancers, opera singers, and theatrical performers for entertainment. it was a night of heart felt toasts and sentimental surprises. the bride’s mother sang a song to her (there was not a dry eye there!). it was a magical last night of celebration!
