Dear Uruguay


It feels to me like the year just started, yet somehow it’s already April. Even though it’s been a while, I still wanted to share some photos from our first trip of the year (or last trip of 2012) to Uruguay last December-January.

We spent two incredibly relaxing weeks with family and friends, in a beautiful place that was very difficult to come back from.

Jose Ignacio

To continue with our wedding week recap (see more here), I would like to show you some of my photos of  Jose Ignacio. A charming beach town, a beautiful lighthouse (that inspired our wedding invitations), and a seafood restaurant so good that you cannot miss it if you are ever in the area. It’s impossible not to fall in love with this place.

Garzón: Part II

About a ten minute drive from the town square, you will find yourself hillside. Some of the most breathtaking views, a mere 30 minutes away from the Atlantic ocean.

On a tip of a hill, Francis has built what I call the sunset deck. A place to gather around with a few bottles of wine and a fire, to watch the day come to an end.

A few hundred feet from the deck, tucked inside the Uruguayan hills,  a house. A charming hidden getaway built on a rock, with panoramic views of the valley. Inside, the decoration and style could only belong to Francis.

It all happened so quickly that I completely forgot to tell you about the tiny magical town of Garzón. Population 200.

On Thanksgiving last year, two days before our wedding, we hosted a luncheon for our guests there, at Fran’s father’s very special restaurant.

There’s an indescribable charm about this town and the special retreat that Francis has created. I think the best way that I can describe it is through my pictures.

The day couldn’t have turned out better. We are extremely lucky to have been able to share with so many friends and family at such an unforgettable place. I leave you with one of my favorite photos from that day. Just look at all of those mischievous faces!
