Rustic Autumn wedding in Spain: Elissa and Brian

Rustic Fall wedding

Did you catch this morning’s autumn e-sesh? Before we head into the weekend, we’ve got one more autumn shoot for ya: Elissa and Brian’s rustic wedding documented by Sttilo Photography in Spain. E + B had been together 11 years when he proposed to her under the Tanzanian stars on a beach in Zanzibar, so boy did they have a lot to celebrate…

Elissa tells it, We gave our wedding planner Opi of Open the Door Events a brief of what type of venue we wanted—a relaxing, rustic country getaway. She did a fantastic job and gave us a shortlist of four amazing venues. However, it was the stunning Fain Viejo that captured our hearts from the moment we saw it. Everything about it from its stunning location to its rustic charm to the warmth and hospitality bestowed on us from the owner and her wonderful staff meant that we could, and we did, have the wedding of our dreams. When we got to the venue we were invited for a complimentary menu tasting, all the food was locally and organically grown as well as the wine. After a few hours of chatting and enjoying the delicious food and atmosphere we thought the tasting was over but we were then shown to our table for a three course meal, we’d only had the tapas and were already full!

Don’t you love these Needle & Thread dresses that the ‘maids donned?

The eucalyptus throughout was one of E’s fave parts… We love how it translated to the centerpieces by Florarcos.

Lastly, our bride’s #1 planning tip: Hire a wedding planner! We couldn’t have had a wedding like this without the help from ours. Little things you don’t even think about like having a natural confetti bar, Opi opened our eyes to all the possibilities and showed us that we didn’t have to follow traditions. Our day would not have been the magical day it was without her amazing vision, dedication to perfection, strong work ethic, and impeachable attention to detail. We were so busy throughout the planning process and literally only corresponded though email after our initial visit, but she was really able to read what we wanted and design a day especially for us.
