Modern Bridal Editorial in Old Havana

Editorial

I can’t remember the first time I became aware of my wanderlust. If there’s anyone I can think of who might have sparked my interest early in life, it would be my paternal grandmother. She and I spent a great deal of time together when I was a young girl and to this day I remember her stories of visiting the Colosseum and of watching Parisians walk and simultaneously snack on entire loaves of baguette that they carry under their arm.

So much of what draws me to want to visit new places is visual: art and architecture (which might come second only to food). Decades, sometimes centuries of history and culture are embedded and displayed on buildings, alleyways and monuments and I’ll always be fascinated by the high regard towards form, art and design that past generations had and left for us to enjoy. Few places embody these characteristics more than Cuba. Leaving political leanings as well as its very complicated recent history and current challenges aside, this colorful and beautiful country is endlessly inspiring, its people are warm and welcoming in a way I didn’t expect. Being a native Spanish speaker I had the fortune of being able to communicate and have many great conversations with Cubans about their lives, their thoughts on politics and government and the many challenges that they face together.

The cherry on top of this amazing trip was having the opportunity to express myself creatively and capture this bridal inspiration alongside my friend Etcetera Event Company. To read about how the inspiration came together and see more photos visit the feature on OnceWed.
