Sail Away with Dai & Chus
The story we tell today smells of the sea. We can still hear the sound of waves breaking on the shore.
We are pleased to introduce you Dai and Chus, a very nice couple, we really enjoyed planning their wedding.
The first requirement was it had to be next to the sea. It is a fact that on our coasts it is not easy to find places celebrate weddings by the sea.
But, like every story that knocks at our door, we had a new challenge.
Finding location was a big task, but we finally did it. Our destination was Jávea, a coastal town of the Valencian Community, which as I have already mentioned on other posts has spectacular coves and small bays.
There, we found a beautiful house. Every corner of “Cala Clemence” was amazing. Antique blue wooden doors, colonial style furniture, pots with succulents denoting sensitivity in the choice of each one, and of course the large balconies with incredible sea views.
The place was perfectly exciting. From the balcony we could see the beach which was just below, and in that wonderful place the ceremony took place.
It was time to choose the dress, so we pack our suitcase and went to Barcelona. We had the opportunity to know the atelier of designers that we admire, it was a pleasure. Dai decided on a YolanCris design, it was perfect for a beach wedding and she looked especially gorgeous.
Mint was Dai’s favorite color so it had an important role on decoration. I still remember when she came with her mint color bag and she said, Rosa, this is the color I want for my wedding.
Dai and Chus prepared a wedding with activities for the whole weekend, so we helped them to host all of their guests at nearby hotels.
For Friday night had prepared a welcome cocktail in Javea’s Port. Dai is from Argentina, and she was very excited to spend as much time as possible with her family and of course with all the guests who decided to be with them in this special occasion.
Saturday was the big day. As told, the civil ceremony took place in a small cove by the sea. For the ceremony, we placed a wooden arch with a light fabric and flowers, we did not want to miss the sea view. The rings were displayed on a mint clay plate with dyed sand, seaweed and natural wood. The cove where the ceremony was held, was of small stones, and even heels are very nice, we invited the guests with a wooden sign to leave their shoes, in order to be more comfortable. We also placed a corner with small glass containers filled up with crumbled lavender to throw after the Yes I do.
When night fell, the guests were on their way to the house. Everything was ready. The reception cocktail , prepared by Grupo El Alto, was a selection of different buffets, one of our favorites was the steak tartar one, delicious … !! We also created a little corner under a tree with shoes for the girls who wanted to get off their heels and some mint scarves to cover from the sea breeze.
There was no seating plan, that fact created a very relaxed atmosphere between family and friends.
The sweetest moment of the night came with the cake. We asked Cupcakes and Dreams to make it filled up with dulce de leche, in order to make a reference to our bride’s argentinian origins. It was a simple but beautiful mint colored cake, decorated with an incredible natural dahlia and a Srta. Cherry cake topper.
After dinner, live music, open bar and dancing under the moonlight.
But the weekend was not over. The day after, Dai and Chus prepared a catamaran trip, for all the guests who wanted to enjoy beautiful views, barbecue and beers on the sea.
