Wedding of the Year
While most of my Instagram feed this weekend was filled with holiday weekend festivities in the US, the rest was focused on a gorgeous wedding that will definitely be hard to top this year. Lady Charlotte Wellesley married Alejandro Santo Domingo in Granada, Spain. The British bride’s father is the 9th Duke of Wellington, descendent of the first Duke of Wellington who defeated Napoleon’s forces at Waterloo. The groom is a Colombian-American financier and philanthropist and son of the late Colombian billionaire businessman Julio Mario Santo Domingo. Alejandro’s brother Andres is married to Lauren Santo Domingo and his niece Tatiana Santo Domingo is married to Andrea Casiraghi of Monaco.
The wedding was held at the 16th-century Church of the Incarnation in Granada and was attended by the Duchess of Cornwall among other royals and Spain’s former king Juan Carlos I. The reception for the 200 guests was held at the Duke of Wellington’s nearby country estate 19th-century house that includes olive gardens that was gifted to the first Duke of Wellington for supporting the Spanish against Napoleon. The festivities the evening before the wedding were held at La Alhambra in Granada which looked just as chic as the wedding. I don’t think we’ll see a wedding this beautiful for quite a while.
