This is the story of Mario and Leah. My most hands on groom of the year. Mario had us smiling and enjoying the morning finishing all the creative details for his wedding to Leah.
Here is Leah´s story and their AMAZING photos by Rares Pulbere
Mario was born in Costa Rica and was fortunate enough to work and travel around the world for work and pleasure. I would describe him as strong willed and extremely passionate man, which is only exemplified by the Latin streak within him. Mario is caring, but most of all he maintains close ties with his family and has strong personal values which I truly admire. This is what ultimately attracted me to him.
Mario and I met whilst at work in Sydney. After a whirlwind 6 months, we fell madly in love and moved to the coast to start our new life. Fast forward one year, and here we are, on the other side of the word, beautiful Italy! I can safely say that the last years have been the best, even if we come from different cultures, with very different upbringings but in the end, we compromise and respect and support one another.
Being from different sides of the world, we decided to get married in Barcelona as it’s such a vibrant city with everything we love; delicious food, wine, with a beautiful city and coastline for all to enjoy. After researching online, we came across Almiral De La Font
I never dreamed that I would have a wedding planner, but I am so glad I did. Not being a local to the area, nor having any idea what my expectations should be, Philippa guided me through each step of the way. Our preference was always to support local businesses so this was ideal for us.
Philippa had creative ideas was able to decorate the venue and organise the flowers for the entire day. I was so impressed with her professional approach, and noted how I felt so calm throughout the day. Everyone commented on how beautiful everything was which was a testament to her work. I would like to thank Philippa from our entire families for providing us with the best day of our lives.
