It’s been a while since Mar & Maurix’s wedding, but theirs is still on my list of favorites of all time. Mar always wanted to get married on a ranch, but she fell in love with this boy from Galicia and changed from the American ranch to the traditional Galicia Pazo, although one with a beautiful corn field!
What she did have was the an old Cadillac to drive her to the wedding!
However, one thing she couldn’t have ever imagined happening – the old Cadillac ran out of gas on the way to the ceremony!
The bride, the Godfather (her dad), the chauffer and the photographer (me!), were stuck in the middle of the highway with an empty tank.
Mar was the most amazing bride ever and never lost her smile throughout. Instead, she called the groom, who was waiting impatiently at the altar, told him not to worry, and then casually laughed at the situation.
We were lucky enough when a neighbour from an adjacent village driving by stopped to help, all the while wondering what a bride could be doing in the middle of the highway!
So, instead of getting to the church in the old Cadillac with a suited chauffer, we got there in a family SUV with a driver wearing flip-flops!
Best anecdote e v e r !
I remember so many great things about this day: all the amazing details, including the hand-made decorations Mar had prepared for the tables, one by one, and then Maurix’s surprised face when his favorite band showed up to play in his wedding, priceless!
Finally, the happiest groom in the world hugging me late that night telling me, almost in tears, “I love her so much!”
