Palacio Paz, celebrating until 3:30 am, and a tango performance—welcome to Jura and Guido’s wedding in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Surrounded by love and laughter, these two danced into their happily ever after!
Our stunning bride chose our Ginger gown (perfect for all that shimming, whirling, and boogieing) and paired it with a Mackenzie jacket made of the same lace as her gown. In her hair, she wore flowers made of vintage nacre (mother of pearl), a gift from her Argentinian family.
How did you choose your gown?
“I wanted something elegant and simple. As soon as I put on my dress I knew it was the right one, I felt comfortable in it and very much myself. I ended up choosing an off-the-shoulder Lea-Ann Belter jacket made in the same kind of lace as the overlay on my dress. I wore the jacket during the ceremony and dinner and then took it off for dancing.”
Tell us about your day! Did you have a theme or style in mind?
“Our wedding was very much a mixture of cultures and traditions. We got married outside at the steps of Palacio Paz, a beautiful early 20th century building near Plaza San Martin in Buenos Aires. Our ceremony was performed in both Spanish and English. In true Argentinian fashion, dinner wasn’t served until 9PM and dancing started close to midnight. We danced until 3:30AM with a brief interlude for a tango show and the mesa dulce (sweet table).”
What’s your funniest wedding day memory?
“Crossing Libertador, a busy street in Buenos Aires, to take photos in the plaza after the ceremony. We had to jaywalk and a construction crew kindly stopped traffic for us so we could cross safely.”
What was your favorite wedding day moment?
“Seeing friends and family from across the Americas—and the world—dancing, hugging, and laughing together.”
What was your something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue?
“While I broke with tradition a bit on this one, I did have something made in Canada (my wedding dress) and something made in Argentina (the nacre flowers in my hair). Both of my parents helped me choose my wedding dress, a memory that I will always treasure. The flowers, a gift from my Argentinian family, were carefully crafted for me from vintage nacre in Buenos Aires.“
Where did you go on your honeymoon?
“Shortly after the wedding we spent five spectacular and peaceful days in Patagonia.”
