The room at the Faena Hotel + Universe in which we used for the bridal suite was affectionately named the Porteño Suite. It was a level of grandeur that I had yet to ever encounter in all of my travels! When I first began the hair and makeup process I gave Kyle Hepp, my wedding photographer, the key to the room and told her to have fun inside it with her camera. Faena is one of the leading hotels in the world and it easy to see why with the following photos:
My paternal Grandmother passed away many years ago, but one of the things that she and I had in common was our love for butterflies. She left me a pair of gorgeous champagne flutes and we decided to bring them with us to Buenos Aires, so that in a way she would be there in spirit. Lucas and I would use them for our first toast as husband and wife.
I love the way that Kyle used the room to showcase my bridal accessories. To me it was the perfect backdrop.
The bathroom was so luxurious that a new word should be created to describe it. Not pictured was a gigantic antique bathtub, as well as a shower built for two.
The bedroom itself was definitely inspired by the city of Buenos Aires, as it oozed a unique sexiness that the city is so famed for. While the decor felt as though it came from the Belle Époque-era, it definitely had a modern touch to it as well.
And if you had any doubt whatsoever that Kyle is not the best in her profession, let me prove it to you with the next two photos. These have to be the world’s greatest dress shots (they were taken in the lobby of the hotel)!
Then the moment finally arrived — after the longest year of my life — to finally put my dress on. Which is your favorite photo?
