Hey friends!  We’re back today with the second video in our series about Christmas in Barcelona, and today’s subject is near and dear to my exterior-illumination-loving heart… …Christmas lights!

Our Wedding Ceremony

Fun fact: I’ve attended over 200 weddings in my life.  😄 Back when I was working as a full-time musician, I used to spend my weekends working as a wedding singer.  Which means that I have sat through soooo many wedding ceremonies.  And ha, feel like I have seen just about...

Our Wedding Day
