From Spain with love…
The Diamond Rock
They could not match better!! Veronica is a Spanish passionate woman, and Bruno a strong Italian lover, but with eyes only for Veronica! They met at a common friend party. As soon Bruno came in, his eyes were taken by the beauty and elegance of Veronica. He new that they story just started! After a couple of years, he decided to make the big ”Step”!! He proposed her. They had different destination in mind, but once they discovered Santorini, they understood that it was the place that they wanted to elope their wedding!
Bruno is a very lucky man to have such a women by his side, but Veronica is not only lucky to have Bruno, she is also by having an amazing mother in law too, that loves her as her own daughter.
Patricia surprised Veronica and Bruno in releasing butterfly at the moment of the big YES! The scene was spectacular!
Our couple stayed for a week at the Architect’s house, enjoying and relaxing every moment.
When the crucial day came, they got prepared at different rooms and we had some much fun taking pictures and being there during the preparation.
Her dress was just AMAZING “ Inmaculada Garcia “ so as her dry flowers bouquet from an artist in Barcelona called: Millo de Riboti- Un air de province. And of course shoes “Jimmy Choo”
Beside the butterfly, they had an exquisite decoration. The bleu and white chrysanthemum flowers made the all theme more “greekich”. The gold pomegranate (name tags) could not match more perfectly. Every detail was choosing with to be absolutely perfect.
Everyone could imagine how the party went! Dancing, music, great food and drinks….. what else could we except when Spanish and Italian people mix together.
The party would not have been complete if they haven’t choose to have fireworks after their first dance!
Our dearest friends, we wish you all the best, we will never forget you. You have engrave our heart!! Love you……
From Ethiopia with love…
The Diamond Rock
Ethiopian culture is full of amazing traditions and history. When Zizi and Yonas first told us their origins we were instantly excited to get to know how a classic Ethiopian wedding would look like.
The first thing we noticed about the couple was that they both are really beautiful and they have an extra stimulated sense of style. It goes without saying that everything that they have picked to wear at their special day was top self and carefully combined to match the traditional clothes.
The couple got ready at the Architect’s house, where they took great photos on the top of the cliff with the breathtaking caldera view. You can check the villa out here
Their wedding ride to the venue of their choice could not be any less extravagant. They have picked a super nice, almost yellow vintage beetle that they absolutely rocked.
To have a successful destination theme wedding, one should naturally combine the two neighboring continents. Even though that seemed a lot in the beginning, we later on understood that Africa and Europe-and more specific Santorini- share a lot more than just the Mediterranean sea.
Two of Zizi’s aunts were cooking traditional African food and the unique spicy smell made everyone think that they were still in their country. The night included their signature bread which is maybe the most suitable combination to the extra spicy sauces they served.
The guests were wearing beautiful traditional dresses and suits.
The women’ dresses were white and had gold and red details and their front hair were caught on beautiful little braids. Everyone was like starring in a movie, a movie that the couple wrote and we perfectly delivered.
Their dancing moves were exceptional, they are born dancers and they proved it all night long. Their bodies move with great rhythm and their traditional music that speaks directly to the heart, made us all travel all the way down to Africa.
We wish you a happy life together, and may each day be as happy as your wedding day. Thanks for giving us the opportunity to learn about your customs.
Xoxo The Diamond Rock team.
