Que bien que estamos cuando estamos bien.
I have been looking forward to this wedding ever since Mar got engaged. I knew that I had to be there, had to photograph it!
Mar was our family’s exchange student…12 or so years ago? I think I was 16 when she came to live with us and learn English. My family has always had exchange students, but Mar was the one I hit it off with. She and I have stayed in contact throughout the years and last year when Seba and I were in Barcelona she showed us around and we had the chance to reconnect.
I couldn’t have been happier to see her. Why? Because she hasn’t changed a bit. She’s the same sweet girl now that she was when she was just a kid, when we first met. Some people lose that joy of being a child and seeing the world through a trouble-free lens, but not Mar. She’s quick to laugh and giggle at everything, quick to hug and love, quick to grin, quick to be joyful. I love that about her so SO much.
Her wedding day was the most perfect representation of her and David. It was small, personal, intimate, laid-back and just so free and happy! Mar and David’s bliss was contagious and all the guests walked around smiling ear to ear the entire day. I couldn’t be more thrilled that I got to be a part of this gorgeous wedding in Spain, it was such an honor!
PS. MASSIVE thank you to Sjoerd Booij, a wedding photographer in Amsterdam, for coming out and shooting this with me. He does amazing work, check him out!

A car broke down on the side of the road when we were about 30 minutes from the ceremony and a Spain’s version of AAA couldn’t come for at least a half an hour to tow it. Mar stayed cool and never got stressed or upset!
