When a wedding is a perfect alchemy of love, style and setting, it is definitely easy to create a terrific effect!
This was the case for Marcella and Alessandro, who got married last summer in a wonderful venue on the Portofino Coast along the Italian Riviera.
A Castle on the sea was the open air theatre of their event. Facing Portofino and the open sea, it has a natural wild green lawn, a nice terrace and an inside hall full of old touches and furnitures belonging to the owner’s ancestors.
This is exactly what inspired the bride who wanted to create a vintage chic wedding theme! Being almost addicted to vintage and antiques we literally fell in love with the idea and developed the arrangements of their special day… but we added a couple of garden aromatic touches…
White laces and porcelain vases, white decapè Chiavarina chairs and delicate hanging lanterns, pale pink and sage green flowers have been the leitmotiv of the wedding decoration from the ceremony gazebo through the table set-up up to the conclusion with two very nice sweet buffets!
We also wanted to keep an eye on the local greenery, so, being a summer garden wedding, we decided to use different vases of aromatic plants as centerpieces : they were wrapped by natural cotton tied in white lace, and each of them was also the table name: on the table cards we wrote some old popular stories told by grandmothers to their grandaughters.
Aromatic plants are one of the traditional and most used ingredients of the Italian Riviera’s cooking culture; for this reason we often love to give them a privileged place in the set up of a real Italian wedding which aims to be built according to the local and historical environment as much as possible.
A garden style dinner reception on a candle lit soft atmosphere have been the right conclusion of a romantic-vintage-chic-aromatic traditional Italian Wedding, that we loved as much as the bride and groom and their guests did!
