We fell in love with this outdoor Jewish wedding in Santiago, Chile sent to us by wedding photographer Claire Morgan, who is also available for wedding photography in Israel. We asked Claire to tell us a bit about this wedding so here is what she said:
“It was such an honour for us to be invited to Santiago, Chile to document Dominic and Jenny’s special day. Jenny is Chilean and Dominic is from Vienna, Austria where they both met while she was doing work experience. They fell in love instantly and kept a long distance relationship for 3 years between Vienna and Santiago, where Jenny was then working, and then San Francisco where Jenny was studying. They decided to get married in Chile since Jenny’s family is so big and so only those based in Europe flew over for the wedding. They got legally married on 11.11.11 at 11.11 am at the city hall in Santiago with just close friends and family. On 13.11.11 they had a jewish wedding ceremony followed by dinner and dancing with around 180 guests.
Jenny chose Casona Canaveral as their wedding location, a beautiful historic house surrounded by nature situated just outside of Santiago before you reach the Andes mountains. They had an outdoor ceremony in the garden by a river held by 2 of Jenny’s best friends which made it very romantic and special. Jenny had 9 Bridesmaids who all wore pink dresses, and Dominic had 8 Groomsmen who all wore pink bow-ties. The reception took place in a big white marquee in the garden and I just loved the hanging lanterns they placed everywhere. I loved how Jenny and Dominic gave each guest a handwritten thank you card at their places, so special. I was very honoured to be flown to Chile from Vienna for their wedding and I am happy to call them true friends now!”
