Take one Canadian girl in les Alpes.
Add the ups & downs of living in France.
Cover with melted cheese...
Et voilà !

Les Scènes du Week-end {21}

French friends + Spanish beer + tapas.
Sunny skies + cobblestones + nuns in bars.
Walking tour of old town + lunch on el patio + ice cream.
Beautiful church + nervous groom + gorgeous bride.
Amazing dinner + cheesy DJ + bed at 4:30 a.m.
= Excellent weekend in Spain.

view from our hotel room
Santiago de Compostella's famous cathedral
just one of the many lovely little streets in the old town
the symbol of the city can be found all over the place
inside the church where our friends got married
just minutes after saying "I do"
the reception was held in a gorgeous old monastery {now a fancy hotel}
us & the newly-weds
fountain in the lovely hotel garden
You know what?
We were in Spain for only three days 
but I managed to take 300 photos.
Guess that's what happens when you are excited 
about being in a beautiful new place
& attending your friends' gorgeous wedding!

I limit myself to ten photos in my weekend scene posts.
It's often hard to choose only ten!
I have so many more pictures of our few days in Spain to share...
not to mention lots I want to show you from our vacation in Brittany earlier this month.

Note to self:
Maybe stay in one place for just a little while 
so that you can edit up your photos
before taking another zillion shots of new & exciting stuff, ok?


  1. Wow, wow, WOW. What a fabulous weekend! When can we phone date {and when did I decide that "phone date" is a verb?} to discuss every little detail?!


  2. You looked stunning Em and that is a gorgeous coloured dress. It looks like a beautiful setting and a lovely weekend. So pretty.

  3. @ Erin: it was so wow! And phone date is definitely a verb!

    @ Cassie: thanks for the sweet compliment! It's always nice to have a reason to put on a fancy dress, non?
