Boho Chic Wedding
What a special wedding this was. The bride wanted a boho chic wedding that reflected their eclectic yet refined tastes. The theme was blue and white in a jumble of patterns.

I just love this spartan, medieval Catholic church in a hidden corner of Ravello. As simple as it was it was the perfect canvas for the lemon trees and myriad of mismatched blue carpets that decorated the church.

While scouring every flea market in Rome looking for blue and white Chinese print vases and dinner plates we couldn’t believe our luck when we came across these blue and white patterned chairs for the bride and groom. They were just perfect!

Allie knew that she wanted a large, dramatic, trailing bouquet for herself. When the florist delivered the bouquet to the room her eyes lit up, she couldn’t believe that it was more beautiful than even she had imagined. The ceremony is now about to begin…

Love, love, love the juxtaposition of the Chinese vases with the lemon trees and the carpets. It was even better than I had hoped.

A mandolin and guitar greeted the newlyweds and guests with classic Neopolitan folk music as they exited the church. When the festivities were finished at the church the duo lead everyone to the cocktail hour garden to begin the celebration.

The reception location is on top of a cliff overlooking the sea, the mountains and the Amalfi Coast. They have an amazing infinity pool which allowed for such stunning photos. It looks as if the couple is floating somewhere between the water and the sky.

The tables were set using collected, mismatched blue and white patterned porcelain plates. These in turn echoed the Chinese ginger jars and vases of the centerpieces. I felt that we needed to bring a little of the color from the floral centerpieces to the plate level which was the inspiration for the pink water tumblers. In my mind boho feels collected and found.

The table runner was originally a light weight cotton bed throw. The moment I saw it I knew that it had to be the runner for the table, that it would be the element that pulled everything together. I had the bed throws cut up into strips and since the fabric is double faced, the light grey border is actually just the fabric turned over to form the border.

The wedding table was set under a canopy of olive trees. We added string lights and cascading flowers which gave it an ethereal and otherworldly vibe.

Below are a few pics from an Engagement Session photo shoot the day before the wedding. Ravello has infinite photo op possibilities and I think it is nice to have professional photos of the couple in every day clothing as well, not just their wedding attire.

I met Allie and Andrew the prior year at the wedding of a friend of their’s in Tuscany. After that weekend they knew that when the time came for their own wedding that that was exactly how they wanted to do it and they called me six months later to begin planning a big wedding for them in Tuscany summer 2018. The wedding date was 17 months away and we slowly began planning when Allie sent me an email titled “Call Me Crazy”! In it she said that they didn’t want to wait that long to be married. Once they started making wedding plans it just felt too long to wait when they wanted to be married right away. So in her email of April she wanted to know if we could pull a wedding together for them in late July or early August of that same year, only 4-5 months away. Given the short notice they wanted something smaller with only their most intimate 50 family and friends somewhere on the water. We can easily plan a wedding in 4 months but this request hit right as our busy summer wedding season got underway which added an additional degree of difficulty. In the end it was amazing, so beautiful, so creative and fun. A joyous celebration for a wonderful couple with equally lovely families, as well. Tanti auguri (many good wishes) Allie and Andrew.
