Having a Madrid Elopement
We chose Madrid because it’s the city that welcomed us and it’s where we came to live. Truly, we fell in love with it and we couldn’t have done it anywhere else.

Memorable Moments in Madrid
Surely the ceremony, even if short, was the most memorable part of our day. We also exchanged vows in front of the scenery of Retiro Park. Another moment that was incredible was our first dance during sunset. Our photographer put our favorite song on a portable speaker. We felt like we were dancing alone even though we were in the city center.
Advice From the Bride
We thought it would take a long time to organize it; instead, in less than two months, we organized everything with the help of our wedding vendors. Our advice is to get a planner and if you have some crazy ideas, propose them. For example, we went to eat in one of our favorite places in the Barrio de las Letras. For a more classic wedding, it might be unusual, but we really wanted to do it.
Enjoying Their Favorite Foods
Our menu was atypical in the sense that we relied on our favorite local who brought us dishes that we love such as fried calamari and for dessert, the churros di san gines. It might be unique for a wedding, but it is very typical in Madrid.
