Selene and Yang had one clear requirement from the beginning of their planning – to wow their guests with a truly unforgettable luxury destination wedding experience. No part of the celebration was to be overlooked, and the number one objective was to surprise and delight all five senses. At Caelia, we love to say yes. Fifty foot coloured smoke canons to end the ceremony? Certainly! Circus performers during dinner? Of course! A hundred disco balls in a historical bodega? Check!

There were so many special moments and stunning surprises in this gorgeous day. Read on for all of the showstopping details and beautiful photography by Dallas & Sabrina.

THE DETAILS

One of our favourite design concepts to date, we mixed refined dusty neutrals with touches of gold and burnt pinks and corals. Selene had a vision of an elegant style that was opulent yet on trend. Naturally we went for high impact voluminous florals, mixing classically beautiful coffee roses and white orchids with innovative materials, such as hand painted dried palms and organically grown coral, to provide texture and a truly unique look for the whole event. 

THE PARTY

Where to start on all of the special features and experiences that guests were treated to during this fabulous celebration? Selene’s ceremony dress was a work of art in itself. Her grand entrance down the staircase of the Castell was an unforgettable moment. Colourful smoke canons finished an emotional ceremony with a bang. Fun fact – THAT image was named one of the top 50 wedding photographs of the year 2019 by top international wedding blog Junebug Weddings!

Selene and Yang formed part of the entertainment themselves when they completely surprised all of their guests with a full choreographed dance routine to kick off dinner. A flamenco performance, an amazing wedding band flown in from London, circus performers, cold fireworks, an Ibiza DJ for the after party… no detail was overlooked.  

We are so thankful to S&Y for allowing us to literally pull out all the stops to create the ultimate luxury destination wedding. Their gracious parents and families, and possibly the most fun bride and groom squads ever, were an absolute pleasure to work with. A dream celebration all round!
