This was such a beautiful, family wedding on a spectacularly warm and sunny day in Florence in April. The tradition of the bride’s family is to include all the brothers and sisters and their spouses and children into the wedding party and so they did to great fanfare.
This wedding was done early on in our business…in 2006! It still looks gorgeous and current today. Certainly because of the church and villa from the Medieval period which are timeless and breathtaking, both of them. But the colors, flowers and decor are also still current. the multi hued pinks combined with burnt red leaves and some greens was an inspired choice for colors and flowers and still looks fresh today. This was the first long table that we had ever done and it was on the cusp of the trend. Ditto for the mismatched bridesmaids dresses in complementing colors of the wedding. Every time I look at the bridesmaids dresses I marvel at how ahead of its time the concept was and how well the colors, fabrics and styles all came together. And ditto again for the flowers, perhaps minus the burnet red leaves, which are still very current and all the rage with weddings and beyond these past 5 years. Blush, soft pink, greens have ruled the wedding market.
This wedding is an example that with a spectacular church or other wedding venue and villa in Italy all you need to do is to personalize the events with your style and taste. Just the right amount of flowers in the right places softens the edges of an ancient church or castle and makes everthing come alive. You don’t need to transform Italy, that is not what you are coming here for. You just need to find the perfect locations that are ideally suited to your tastes and logistics for your guests and group size and then embellish a bit here and there to make it your own.
