Callie + Pepe’s Petin, Spain Wedding at Private Residence
Callie and Pepe met in grad school, in a whirlwind of worldwide romance. When they asked us to capture their special day, as Chicago Destination wedding photographers, we were beyond excited. They had their wedding festivities in Petín, Spain– which is Pepe’s hometown. During their portrait session, all of the people living in town knew exactly who he was, and reminisced about Pepe’s grand father. The whole experience was incredibly moving. It felt like we were living in a Disney movie, but just real life.
Callie got ready at the Paladium Hotel in Valedorras, just a town over from Petín. After their ceremony, Callie and Pepe paraded across the town with all of their guests. They were lead by Galacian bagpipers. For the florals, Pepe added an extra touch by gathering extra wildflowers to surprise Callie with on the morning of their wedding. The reception was at Pepe’s family vineyard.
Below are some highlights from their special day.
