I had the extreme pleasure of traveling over to Mijas, Spain and documenting the wedding of my good friend Sean and his wife Victoria. Everything about these couple days pointed to the goodness and faithfulness of Jesus from the depth of relationships all of these incredible humans share, to the crazy amazing views surrounding us, to even where the ceremony was held. It was a blessing to be there to say the least. Make sure to read along through the blog post for more insights.
Sean became a friend a few years back when he was working with AIM – Adventures In Missions. He would help people to debrief their experiences while serving on an 11 month long mission trip to 11 countries called The World Race. However, he was also shooting video and continually growing in that skill. That led him to other opportunities and to the point where he now shoots video full time. He then moved to Spain to be in community with some people he had met through his ministry experiences and that ultimately led him to meeting Victoria. Despite just meeting her the day of their wedding, I quickly learned why Sean thought so much of her and could see why they were perfect together. They love others to extreme lengths and they fight for what is right and good.
Sean and Victoria – thank you! Thank you for trusting me. Thank you for inviting me in to your story. Thank you for allowing me to come and create beautiful imagery that hopefully captures exactly what you guys think/feel when you think of your life together.
The night before the wedding, all of the guys were hanging together to enjoy a meal and pray over Sean. This all took place on the roof of the Airbnb that Sean and Victoria now run so if you ever want to vacation to southern Spain, hit me up because I know a guy – ha.
The next day, Sean picked me up so we could go take a quick look at the ceremony site. This was literally a piece of land that Sean found and was not being used currently. He told me, “Andy, when I stepped foot on this property, my feet literally felt like they were on fire. I knew the Lord was telling me, ‘This is where you will get married.'” It was awesome to see his community transform this place into a beautiful ceremony site.
We then headed into Mijas Pueblo in order for me to capture everyone getting ready as well as some portraits.
After leaving the ceremony site, we drove an hour and a half through the mountains en route to the reception at Finca Rocabella. We took our time and stopped along the way at some killer locations Sean had previously scouted.
How all food at every wedding reception from now until forever should be prepared.
