Deirdre and Mohammad’s wedding went far beyond what we had anticipated. We put in tremendous effort to meticulously plan a 3-day program: from the welcome dinner and friends’ dinner, to the tapas lunch and activities both inside and outside the city. We even incorporated Persian elements in the menus and decorated the sofreh table with authentic items.
However, what truly stood out was the joy we saw in their smiles and the love with which they looked at each other; and that, dear friends, had nothing to do with our work…
We met Deirdre & Mohammad through the cameras, as always happens, but from the very beginning there was an absolute connection with them… And that’s even though San Francisco is 9 hours ahead! Deirdre always with her coffee in hand, Mohammad from his workplace, and us from the heart of Seville: the perfect triangle!
The choice of Seville as the destination for their wedding was always clear, I think. They were looking for a mix of cultures, a fusion of traditions, the taste of the Mediterranean, the scent of jasmine, the touch of tiles, and the infinite light… What better destination than Seville, then?
The wedding had to be a mix of cultures: Mohammad is of Persian origin, and Deirdre is American, both from San Francisco, the most “liberal” city in the USA, so Seville was the perfect setting, being a city that has historically coexisted with all kinds of religions and cultures; a mestizo city, like them.
The first night was dedicated to close friends and family, it was the pre-pre wedding! We chose a house-restaurant where their 80 guests exclusively enjoyed the garden, and a delicious tapas menu… It was the perfect preamble to embrace their loved ones (and to lose your voice, right, Deirdre?). The night ended in a nearby cocktail bar… this was not planned!
Now it's time: Welcome Dinner.
The previous night had been a success: the families were happy, they were radiant, and the Sun shone ready to give the best of Seville summer for the event of their lives. Finally, the rest of the guests arrived… Now the “official” events were beginning.
For the first night, we chose our favorite palace: Palace IX. The sensations felt in this venue are indescribable, but we guarantee that it never disappoints. We noted down the brilliant idea of Mohammad & Deirdre for future events: White Party at the Palace. We loved it!
This event had many details… but we won’t tell you about them… better come and see for yourself!
The event lasted 5 hours, 300 intense minutes in which we made available to the guests all the amenities for them to solely concentrate on one thing: enjoying an unforgettable night.
Let’s start with the end… How could we have predicted that almost all the guests would stay until the end?! But on the other hand, how could they not, it was the wedding of the year! The event of their lives!
Well, yes… the party lasted until 5 a.m., but it seemed like it would never end… So many things happened in that venue, between 8 p.m. and 5 a.m., with those souls… What an event!
We did it!
We did it!
That must have been what Deirdre & Mohammad thought the next day, as they slowly remembered what they had experienced the night before… The feeling that Deirdre & Mohammad had the next day is indescribable, it takes many days of rest to realize the magnitude it has in every way…
At Bodas del Sur, we know the importance of this moment, and that’s why we always insist on creating an event where you can savor the “midsummer night’s dream.”
Deirdre & Mohammad (and families): you have been a part of our lives for over a year, you have inspired us, we have laughed, and cried together. We are going to miss you a lot!
