València, Spain | Destination Wedding/Elopement | Christina Servín Photographs | Fine Art Film Photography

Everyone loves a good destination wedding, myself included. I have a serious case of wanderlust and just say destination engagement, wedding, elopement and my bags will be packed in a jiffy. My family and I just returned from a long Christmas holiday in Spain and I found myself thinking that this might be the most wonderful place for a spring, fall or winter destination luxury elopement or wedding.

Picture this….It was the dead of winter in this Mediterranean marvel and yet the skies were an impossible shade of brilliant blue, the sun was shining soft and golden, and the air was warm and dry. Combine this heaven with the most graciously warm people, delicious (make that mouth watering) food and drinks. I can see why all the major cities like Barcelona, Madrid and Valencia are the perfect place to get married. Your honeymoon options from Spain are endless because you could quickly be in Ibiza or take a quick flight to Paris and feel like you’re in a whole other world

I think this is a city where you can find romance, culture, endless beauty and the perfect place to fit the wedding of your dreams.

These images were taken in València which is the third largest city in Spain. Founded as a Roman colony in 138 BC It sits on the east coast of Spain and has approximately 1.7 million residents (depending on how you define the parameters). The historic center (where we stayed) is brimming with charm because of the narrow uneven streets, and many ancient monuments and churches. The city also boasts the largest aquarium in Europe (L'Oceanogràfic) within the arts and sciences district (Ciudad de las Artes y las Ciencias) with notable architecture such as the Palau de les Arts Reina Sofía.
