More than planning weddings I create weddings.
All my work begins with a blank sheet, and all my weddings are like a script of a love story
Like a book ... A BOOK OF LOVE!
With characters, actors, arguments and readers!
More than trends, my Weddings are Love Stories, where the whole history and identity of each couple is incorporated and where my own fingerprint is always present. Conceptual Weddings. A vision of a love story through the eyes of the creator. Weddings with their own soul and concept and title. Like a book ... A BOOK OF LOVE! I love traveling, I love the sea, I love theater and I love Cirque du Soleil. All these influences are part of my creations, so I believe there should be no limits on how we think and create a wedding. Everything is possible and we should dream as much as we wish and make it happen on the day of the wedding!
I love culture and to have been born in a country so rich in heritage and culture, the cultural aspects of each place and each couple are important for me to be present on the day of the wedding as part of each love story.
I believe that we all fall in love in different ways, so I believe that all weddings must also be different, just as our passion is!
I do not believe in impossible ideas.
I believe that certain ideas need to be adapted and reorganized to materialize.
In the end a "A Wedding is a Past, a Present and a Future" and just as a writer my job is to tell that Story of Love that happens through the time until the day of the wedding.
