Real Wedding | Guillermo + Susana

Tell us a little about yourselves!

Guillermo is a Mexican film-maker and Susana is a Spanish design executive. They live in San Francisco. This was their second marriage. They have seven children between them - Susana has four and Guillermo three - and family is very important to them. Susana and Guillermo share the same passion for life, art and creativity. They travel the world and live every minute with beautiful joy.

Why did you decide to get married where you did?

La Borda del Mentidero is right in Madrid and very chic.

How many guests did you have?

We had 200 guests and Volvoreta captured our day.

Tell us about your outfits.

Brandon Maxwell’s one shoulder draped crepe was chic and sexy and suited me perfectly. I also wore my grandmother’s antique pearl and diamond earrings which are a family heirloom worn by the family’s brides over generations.

What was the most important aspect for you, in terms of planning your wedding?

We emphasized a sophisticated and chic ambiance.

Were there any elements that were important for you to incorporate?

We had to include a proper Mariachi band!

Any tips for couples getting married?

The only thing that matters is to share a joie de vivre with each other and your guests.
