If you’re goin’ to San Francisco
Be sure to wear some flowers in your hair
If you’re goin’ to San Francisco
You’re gonna meet some gentle people there
For those who come to San Francisco
Summertime will be a love-in there
And the spirit of San Francisco invaded the streets of Toledo … You rarely have the opportunity to photograph the union of two cultures and customs as clearly as in the celebration of a wedding; nor in a better place than Toledo, which has always been known as the city of Tolerance and of the three cultures. Michelle & Ignacio also picked Toledo because it’s the sister city of Michelle’s hometown, Toledo Ohio… and happens to be the oldest sister city partnership in the world.
Michelle and Ignacio chose for their wedding ceremony the Monastery of San Juan de los Reyes (always impressive) and for the later celebration, a place of privileged views like the Cigarral de las Mercedes.
An American wedding, carefully prepared, where no detail was missing thanks to the work of All Seasons Weddings team. A beautiful villa where the bride got ready with her friends and her mother. A logo made ex profeso for the couple. The culinary mix with the best of both worlds: jabugo ham and a very American bridal cake, more than cake it was an artwork as it was decorated with the same arabesques of the bride’s dress. Lights of Michelle’s favorite color at the banquet and a selection of music during the party in which they mixed both American & Spanish songs… and even a copy of the Champions League Trophy, won by Real Madrid that day (Ignacio is actually a great supporter of Real Madrid).

The year 2015 has been one of the busiest I’ve ever had as a wedding photographer so far, thanks to the 29 couples I have had the luck to work with.
It has been a season in wich I had the oportunity to travel, not only throughout Spain but also in Ireland, England and France. This is why I want to honor all the couples that have trusted in my vision to photograph their weddings.
For me all of them are “The Couple of the Year 2.015”, so the decision will be made by popular acclaim. The most voted couple will win the title and the prize: 1-2 nights in a charming hotel to choose from hundreds spread across Spain, France, Italy, Andorra and Portugal.
I think they all deserve a romantic break, don’t they?
These are the contest rules:
– The winning couple will be the one with more votes at 22:00 on Tuesday 19 January.
– The votes shall be made by a comment in this post. For a vote to be valid, the comment must have the following format: name of the couple + why you like that photo.
For example: “Finn & Rey – I love how the bride’s cat is eating her bouquet.”
– Comments that do not fit this format are invalid and will not be counted.
– You can only vote once per couple, but you can vote for all the couples that you wish.
Important note for the eager: Every comment is reviewed and approved before being published, so it can take up to several hours to appear on the page. You don’t need to submit the same comment 15 times 😉
