Wedding in Chile at Viña Tarapacá | Valery + Luka

“Dance expresses joy better than anything else.” – Bob Fosse


Valery and Luka’s wedding in Chile at Viña Tarapacá is proof! These two lovebirds danced (and laughed) through every minute.  Beneath glittering chandeliers, they twirled through a tango, Valery and her girls performed a Beyoncé-inspired dance, then Luka and his guys hotfooted their own number.  In every shot, you’ll see wide smiles and delighted hearts.

While he didn’t participate in the dancing, Larry, Valery’s dog, was in on the celebration, too. He was in charge of wearing Valery’s something blue!

From Valery:

How did your sweetie propose?


“We had planned a trip to Cancun, and on the first day he organized dinner at the beach. He seemed kind of nervous that day, especially when the waiter told us our table was still occupied and our reservation was postponed for later! When we finally got the call for our table, he proposed on the walk to the beach!”

How did you choose your gown?


“It was a long process, I’m an indecisive person so I looked at Instagram and bridal websites for a year! I traveled to NYC and tried on a ton of dresses, but nothing convinced me! On one of the last days searching, I got to the bridal store Lovely and was helped by a bridal consultant called Hannah. She totally understood what I was looking for, and paired a lovely Lea-Ann Belter top with a Louvienne organza skirt which I fell in love with immediately!”


Tell us about your day! Did you have a theme or style in mind?


“When we started planning the wedding we were sure of one thing, the venue. We fell in love with a place at a wedding we were invited to a few years ago. It’s a vineyard called “Viña Tarapacá.” We picked a more classic decoration with flowers and hanging chandeliers, it looked beautiful!”


What was your favorite wedding day moment?


“Dancing tango! we took classes and prepared a choreography for the wedding!”


Where did you go on your honeymoon?

“We’re still on our honeymoon! We’re travelling in Europe for 4 months—it has been amazing!”
