Real Weddings in Dubrovnik- Guest Bridal post by Lisa & David Everington, married June 22nd 2011

Before I got married I loved reading through the "Real Weddings" section of any wedding magazine. Being a wedding planner I knew other Brides were best source of information. They still are!
It gave me ideas, inspirations and it was always a main point of trust- you will always trust other Brides more than any vendor selling their service.


I am more than honored to present you our first guest blog by not only our recent clients but 2 people who have become our friends and incredible ambassadors for weddings in Duborovnik. I proudly present you Lisa and David's wedding in Dubrovnik story, composed by the Bride and Groom themself  :)
ENJOY!


Dubrovnik Wedding Story of Lisa and David
We first made contact with Dubrovnik Event in December 2009 for a June 2011 wedding, our vision was clear from day one; a romantic ceremony held in the medieval Sponza Palace, following by a reception close to the sea with spectacular views of the old town whilst listening to some classical music surrounded by our loved ones.  Dubrovnik Event listened to our dreams for our special day and delivered us the most magical wedding and we all really enjoyed the planning!

Whilst David was getting ready at the villa with his two best men.......


Lisa was getting ready in the bridal suite at the Excelsior Hotel with her Mom and Bridesmaids, this was a very relaxed morning.  After enjoying a scrumptious breakfast and spot of sunbathing by the sea with champagne it was time to get ready.... which was good fun and very relaxed.  All ready in her bridal gown and shoes..... Lisa was met by her Father on the balcony overlooking the old town..... there were lots of tears! It was such an emotional moment.




The time soon came for the brides Father to walk Lisa to Sponza Palace, this was a lovely walk, greeted by well wishers along the way! 
We shared our romantic ceremony with 40 of our closest family and friends.  There were many happy tears shed by the groom as he waited for his bride to arrive and exchange their marriage vows.



Before the bride and her father entered Sponza Palace, the bride's brother walked his Mother down the aisle, shortly followed by the bridesmainds and the two pageboys, one of whom did a grand job carrying the rings!


After the ceremony, we went off for their photo shoot around the old town with Veronica whilst a drinks reception was held at bar Revelin for the guests, this was very well received considering the heat, and a beautiful location overlooking the habour.


Following the drinks, everyone then moved onto the Palm Terrace at the Excelsior Hotel, which was the perfect setting overlooking the sea and the old town of Dubrovnik.  The service provided by the hotel staff was impeccable; they really looked after all of the guests.  Everyone really enjoyed the classical music performed by Jazzy Classy band whilst enjoying a delicious meal on the Palm Terrace.  It was a fun, romantic as well as emotional atmosphere. 


Following the meal, we had our first dance – ‘Endless Love’ performed by Jazzy Clasy and under the stars of Dubrovnik.


Guests were then entertained by Taliri band – the dance floor was full all evening.  Everyone had so much fun and commented how it was the best wedding they had ever been to.
It was the best decision to get married in the romantic city of Dubrovnik – a day that we shall never forget.  We cannot wait to return to celebrate our first anniversary!

Thanks again Ines, Marin and the rest of the team!
