Through a mutual friend’s poker night, Christine and Oscar met, and it was love at first sight. The couple wished for a wedding rich in Colombian culture that also carried a mix of tradition and modernity. Their reception venue, Taller de Oficios de Barichara, is not just a beautiful spot, but is also a school that preserves the traditional, native crafts of Colombian culture. This dark-blue and warm-red styled wedding was surrounded by beautiful architecture, which told its story through the gorgeous photos captured by Jean-Laurent Gaudy. We absolutely love event planner Zayda Pabon’s design choices and Christine’s bridal fashion — this wedding is sure to inspire!
Christine and Oscar
Taller de Oficios de Barichara, Barichara, Colombia
We wanted something very colorful and festive that would fit the Colombian culture and a religious wedding. I asked the wedding planner to try and set a “rural chic” atmosphere. The global impression was a perfect mix of tradition and modernity. Our color palette of blue and red was also very present everywhere.
It’s very difficult to pick just one! The whole day went flawlessly, and we enjoyed all of it! We loved it all from the religious ceremony where we first saw all of our family and friends waiting for us, to the photo session with Jean-Laurent with just the 2 of us after church, to the speeches where we all cried and Oscar started singing with the band during the party. Different emotions at different moments of the wedding but overall it was a perfect day! We just wish it would have lasted longer!
