When I got the opportunity to shoot Angela + Alexander’s destination in Barcelona, Spain, I almost couldn’t believe it.  I’ve been working so hard to build my destination wedding portfolio and I’d never visited Spain before – so it was a no-brainer for me.  With the help + guidance of Taryn + Dani of Taryn Stark Wyant Events, their intimate wedding day came together perfectly.  Villa Valentina is located about 35 minutes north of Barcelona, in the municipality of Sant Andreu de Llavaneres.  Perched high above the town, in the beautiful hills of Spain, Villa Valentina is a small, quiet villa featuring 5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, a private pool, and common space for up to 18 guests.  The entire US-based vendor team got to stay on-site for this destination wedding and it was absolutely magical.  It’s such a special property!

Angela + Alexander envisioned a wedding that celebrated the colors, food, and culture of Spain.  They got engaged in Mallorca, so Spain was a special place for them to start their marriage together.  With 20 of their closest family + friends, they said “I do!” in a beautiful garden ceremony, set against a greenery-covered wall adorned with flowers.  Guests enjoyed cocktail hour by the pool, dining on traditional Spanish cuisine including seafood paella and fresh sliced Jamon Iberico – also known as Iberian ham.  As the sun set, everyone sat down for a multi-course dinner under the stars and spent the evening in celebration of the couple.

After dinner, a local Flamenco group performed for everyone and it was absolutely incredible.  The guitar music, the singing, the dancing… it was incredibly special and a definite highlight of the day.  Angela + Alexander’s wedding day was a true Spanish celebration and it is a wedding day that I will always remember.  Here are some of my favorites from their gorgeous destination wedding at Villa Valentina in Barcelona, Spain…
