Okay guys, first things first: that gown! It’s a custom design by Ecliptica in Puerto Rico, where bride Maite is from. She handed over her moodboard and let the designers work their magic. Then, she didn’t see it until 3 days before the wedding. Some things are meant to be, ya know?

And the rest of Maite + Allan’s Barcelona botanical wedding, represented by both Puerto Rico national flower Flor de Maga (for Maite) + the thistle from Scotland (for Allan) is just as impressive. Photos by Raquel Puras of 3 Deseos y Medio:

Allan wore a traditional Scottish kilt in the Stevenson (his last name) tartan.

Maite says, The girls at Bornay  are flower geniuses. I wanted something wild, slightly strange and moody, and they delivered. Some flowers were slightly spray painted. There was a variety of thistles, fern, moss, miniature air plants, colored craspedia, and a variety of banksia protea and white hydrangeas. It was so unusual, it looked from a jungle in another planet. I loved it.

My most memorable moment was saying hello to Allan when I reached the altar. In Britain, the groom waits facing the front of the church until the bride is by his side. I didn’t know this so I was getting anxious that he wasn’t seeing me walk down, and I remember whispering to my uncle, who walked me down the aisle, “Why isnt he turning around?” I started walking a bit faster and my uncle said let’s slow down, he’s right there. My family started whispering to turn around and he did a bit before I reached him. All of the sudden I got so shy, like I was meeting him for our first date. Our grins from beginning to end of the wedding made all the planning so worth it.

They didn’t have a videographer… Instead, a friend set up 10 GoPros around and on guests!

Some parting words from the bride… One of the best things we did was take a few days before the whole thing started to disconnect. We got to Barcelona 3 days before our friends and family started arriving and whilst we did some planning we mainly just enjoyed relaxing by ourselves.

Cheers you guys!

Well if this isn’t the sweetest thing you’ll see today… When Designer + Stylist Jenny Bradley got the news of her gal Darya’s engagement, she jumped at the chance to throw her a bridal shower. She took to planning an intimate gathering in her childhood home to create all the lovely details she knew Darya would fall for. And who wouldn’t love a sweet summer soiree to celebrate their big moment?!

Thanks to the talented D’Arcy Benincosa for the photos.

Jenny says, It was decided that an evening outdoor party in the backyard of my childhood home was the answer, with its quaint cottage look, giant weeping willow trees, cinderblock walls crawling with ivy and expansive weathered deck, it was the perfect backdrop for the fresh, natural and rustic theme I wanted.

More details from Jenny: The guests were greeted by a self-serve lemonade and limeade bar with slices of fruit and freshly cut mint leaves from the garden. The bride was admired in a delicate floral crown and ladies mingled amongst the yard before a delicious buffet style dinner accented with luscious eucalyptus and a stunning centerpiece full of berry blooms and greenery. The night was perfect as we ate, laughed and celebrated a beautiful friend.
