Moments of love

Our protagonists met almost 20 years ago, thanks to a mutual friend. Mònica worked in a restaurant together with her friend. One day it coincided with Óscar, and they fell in love with each other. Mònica asked her friend for advice, and he told her that he thought this was not the time. She tells me that now she is sure that this really was not her moment; this would come later, but it would come. A few years later, the two met again on an excursion to Mount Puigmal, but they didn't think it was the right time either. They did not stop coinciding in different situations and events, they felt very comfortable together, and every time they saw each other in a group they looked for each other. Until they finally found their moment. Mònica tells me that, in the end, everything was easy, because they were made for each other. And this beautiful story ended up taking hold in the great mountain wedding that you will see in this post.


The complicity of the couple

Mònica and Óscar define themselves as the perfect balance between similar and different at the same time. Both are cheerful, affectionate, simple and accommodating. But at the same time each one has their tastes, their concerns and their own personality. Something they share is the love for "Do It Yourself", "doing it yourself". They love to work things with their own hands. In fact, Mònica was the one who took care of making the decorations, the gifts and the cupcakes for her wedding by herself. She says the two have taken their love of crafting "to another level." And the other great hobby they have in common is their passion for the mountains. This love for the mountains, reinforced by their stories and unique moments during excursions and trail walks, had to be reflected on a day as important as their wedding, and so they did, with a beautiful wedding in the mountains.


A proposition won

Óscar was not a very “wedding” person, because he had always seen big, super ostentatious ceremonies. Mònica, on the other hand, did have in mind that she would love to get married, but she also had in her head the idea of ​​something much simpler and more intimate than what they had always seen. So Mònica saw that Óscar needed a “push”, and decided to ask him what his ideal wedding would be like; what she wanted and what was clear to her that it was not for her. Óscar began to change his mind about weddings, since what Mònica suggested was more his style, but he did not dare to take the step. Finally, Mònica challenged him with a bet, Óscar lost it, and they started planning their wedding in the mountains.


Your wedding in the mountains

Mònica had always wanted to get married, but since her father's death it was something she had trouble thinking about. One day he remembered an advertisement where a couple was celebrating a wedding in the mountains. And, as a sign, he knew that if they wanted to make the promise of being partners for life, it had to be that way.

The big day arrived and one thing was clear from the beginning: it had to be an informal mountain wedding. As I have told you, big ostentatious celebrations are not the style of Mònica and Óscar, so their wedding had to be intimate and simple. They both knew how to make decisions very quickly, so everything flowed perfectly. You already know about Mònica and Óscar's passion for “DIY”, and this materialized in most of the details of the celebration. Mònica took care of everything personally, and what she couldn't do she made sure that everything fit in with the vision they had for that day.


Little big details of the wedding

Weddings as intimate as this mountain wedding are often made up of precious details. In this case, Mònica and Óscar decided to do the light ceremony. This is a symbolic tradition in which the future husband and future wife each hold a small lighted candle. Later, together and at the same time, they light a larger candle, as a symbol of the life together that they are about to begin. Don't you think it's beautiful? I already have chicken meat. ♥


Something that has me in love with Mònica and Óscar's wedding is this very special furry guest. I present to you Mel, a love. Mel is now 3 years old, just celebrated on July 22, just the first anniversary of Mònica and Óscar. She was adopted when she was 2 months old and, as Mònica herself tells me, “she is our spoiled little girl” ♥. You know that I also have a dog, Pluto, a beautiful Labrador retriever who has made my days happy for years. I'm a huge animal lover, so it's very touching to see such beautiful bonds between humans and dogs. Mel wore the rings so beautifully, with their flowers and everything, in this beautiful wedding in the mountains, and she couldn't have behaved better. It's all heaven.

A while ago we also had a couple who decided to incorporate their dogs into their big day. They are Kara and Austin, and you can read more about their rustic wedding with two dogs here. ♥


The dress ♥

The truth is that Mònica is a totally unique bride. Not only for her wedding in the mountains, but also for a very special accessory that she chose for her rustic wedding dress. Mònica's dress is a Gala Bohemian in Plumetti Tulle. I love this tulle because it is very fun and gives a touch of freshness and total originality. Also, I think it creates a great contrast between romantic and rustic combined with the setting of this mountain wedding.

Mònica was quite clear about what she wanted, in fact it was the second time she tried it. I was looking for something bohemian, that was comfortable, at the same time beautiful, and that did not cost a fortune. And as soon as she put on her dress, she looked radiant. She combined it with a beautiful flower crown that she had always dreamed of. In the photo you can see how radiant she was.


Regarding the special accessory I was telling you about, it is none other than… mountain boots! That's right, and our Mimètik Brides never cease to amaze us. Denim jackets, sneakers, hiking boots... accessories as original as these, give the bride a lot of personality and originality. In our bridal atelier in Barcelona, ​​we have photos of some of our Royal Weddings hanging on the wall. This photo of Mònica is one of them. And I must say that she is one of the biggest protagonists, all eyes go to her and her boots!


By the way, I want to say that Oscar is one of our favorite boyfriends ever. She wore a total look for her wedding in the mountains. It was worn with braces and a bow tie in a beautiful tile color that contrasted beautifully with the natural environment and that combined with the bride's crown. In fact, if you read this post on How to choose a groom's suit to be inspired by your partner's suit, you'll see that Óscar is the guy on the cover, and it's no wonder! Totally rustic.


Advice for future brides

“Be yourself. Let the wedding talk about you in every corner. May it be very yours.”

- Monica


a memory forever

And so far this beautiful and intimate wedding on the mountain of Mònica and Óscar. As you can see, sometimes the places we least think of can be the scene of days as beautiful as this one. As Mònica says, the important thing is to feel reflected in such a special day.

I also want to thank Airada Audiovisuals for the beautiful photos they have taken of this unique moment. He managed to capture all the emotion of that moment ♥

I say goodbye with a phrase from Mònica, which I think defines very well the feeling of today's weddings: “ I don't know if it will be the most important day of my life. I know it will be one of the most beautiful. And I hope to always remember him with such fondness.”

With lots of love,
