We Got Hitched!

September 10, 2013 • Life

we did it. we finally tied the knot and it was magical. we invited our close friends and family to join us in navarra, spain – and hotel aire de bardenas was the backdrop to our weekend of wedding bliss.

we ate tapas and drank cava. we listened to our dear friend play the guitar by the pool in the middle of the night and watched other friends freak out on the dance floor. we posed for pictures during a thunder storm and sighed with relief when the sun came out just in time for our ceremony. we cried our way through that wonderful and very emotional ceremony and nervously said our vows. we watched happily as our friends from different places all over the world had a good time, and we even enjoyed the awkward first dance (‘at last’ by etta james, in case you were wondering).

it easily was the best weekend of our lives, and i’m still a little sad that it’s all over now. i’ve been looking at the instagrams tagged with our hashtag #stephandmatti every ten minutes, and i miss everything and everyone terribly. so if you’ll let me, i’d like to share some more memories of our best day ever on here soon.

p.s. that bracelet i wore on our wedding day? i designed it myself for belgian diamond accessory brand diamanti per tutti. words can’t describe how excited i am to share more news about that, too!

    Once again, congratulations (I think I used every media channel by now to say that :)).
    It did seem like the best day ever for you guys, judging by the #stephandmatti Instagram-feed.

    I would love for you to share some more memories, but don’t judge me when I pin all images on Pinterest.

    Can’t wait to discover more about your collab with DPT. I really like this preview, because their current designs are a bit too cliché for me.

  2. Congratulations! I got married last year in November and I still can’t stop smiling thinking of that day. I’m looking forward to seeing some more pictures!

    Wauw! Ik volg je blog al een hele tijd en ik heb de instagramfeed nu al zo vaak bekeken dat ik me bijna een stiekeme stalker voel als ik nu niet even post hoe prachtig jullie dag wel was. Proficiat Stephanie, ik hoop ooit mijn eigen lovely day zo perfect te krijgen :-)
