A relaxed walk by La Concha and a final toast with champagne were the perfect script por this engagement session.
Decoration, seats for the guests, candles, flowers, an awesome wedding dress, shoes, complements… I’m sure that Jordan thought: why do I need so many things? Obviously, the venue must look good. But I always repeat the same mantra… the most important thing at a wedding is to live intensely such an special day with all your family and friends. And that is just what Jordan and Nick did.
It is nothing new that San Sebastian is the chosen destiny by many American people to spend their holidays. In this case, a walk by La Concha beach is a must. And that was the perfect excuse to arrange an engagement-family session with this couple the day before the wedding.
To avoid clichés, they forgot about formal portraits and they suggested a documentary approach, which fitted perfectly with my style. So, with no fear to get in the sand or in the water, we followed this little big family by the shore. This funny short walk ended up with a toast with champagne.
Sometimes, my job lets my know people that make you feel part of their family.
The following day, Jordan started to get ready at Noventa Grados, just in the middle of the Old Town. She was in company of all the women of her family while she had her hairdressing and make-up done. After that, she only had to get dressed with the help of her little sisters. The first look with Nick on the roof of the villa Lanperna, which is an awesome exercise of contemporary architecture, was simply fantastic.
Some elegant flowers arranged by Villa Flores and white petals on the floor of the garden were the only ornament for the ceremony. No more was needed, because the accomplice glances, the nervous smiles and tocuhing hands were the best decoration.
Jordan’s uncle and godfather was the officiant during the ceremony, that was simple and cozy. An spectacular sightseeing, moving speeches, some unexpected present, rings and a toast with champagne… everything was perfect.
The villa Lanperna was the perfect scenario for a quick portrait session before going downtown to Atari Gastroteka, where Jordan, Nick and their family had a very informal dinner sitting at a long table outdoors.
Sometimes, as it happened in this destination wedding in Igueldo, besides taking photographs, my job brings me the chance to know people that show you their esteem and make you feel part of them. And that is a present that we will always be thankful for.
Jordan & Nick, thank you so so so much!
