A Spanish Monastery Wedding
This was a first for Bea and I to have the opportunity to photograph a wedding at a Spanish Monastery. The venue was absolutely beautiful. Tables were being set up in the hallways that surrounded the center courtyard where the cake was found along with a live band and a dance floor. Huge statutes decorated the end caps of each hallway and the chapel where they had their nuptials was in walking distance of it all. There was one out of the four hallways (One big Square) that had two large wooden doors that led into the historic chapel. It was so beautiful to see everything in such great condition, given the age in which it truly was.
We wish Tassyane and Omar the best and hope they are enjoying their beautiful honeymoon in Fiji!! 🙂
Interview with the Bride:
Maria: Did it take long to find the perfect dress?
Tassyane: I bought a dress one year before the wedding. I tried on six dresses. When I went for my final fitting, three weeks prior to the wedding date, I fell in love with another dress and changed it!
Maria: Why did you choose the Spanish Monastery as your venue?
Tassyane: Because we love the culture and history behind it. We love traveling to Europe and seeing the historical buildings, we thought it was a perfect fit for us.
Maria: What was your favorite moment from your wedding day?
Tassyane: The entire day and every second of it was PERFECT!
Maria: What was the biggest obstacle you faced while planning your wedding?
Tassyane: We really didn’t have an obstacle. We worked with Fetes and Events, an event company in Miami and they were great helping us plan the entire thing. It really was hassle free. Thank God!
Maria: Did you have any major issues to deal with on your actual wedding day? And if so, how did you overcome and remain calm?
Tassyane: The limo was late….I wasn’t calm….I got very upset.
Maria: Is there anything you would change, looking back at your wedding day?
Tassyane: I don’t think we have pictures of the ceremony from a front angle. The altar was a little weird, it was closed in/off and I didn’t see a way the photographer could go up….I didn’t notice that before…
Maria: Any advice to future brides while they plan their wedding?
Tassyane: Get a wedding planner, delegate and plan with time.
