Weddings and marriage totally change you as a person, that's a total no-brainer. But what you may or may not know yet is that they can also change your sense of style. This self proclaimed non-traditional bride wowed her friends and family with an unbelievably romantic wedding day in Italy with lots of tulle, lace and pink. And let me tell you, it's absolutely gorgeous! Trendinozze helped bring her vision to life and designed and planned the wedding of this bride's dreams. And you can see it all right here.
From the Bride... “Are you serious? Really?” This is the most common reaction that we got from relatives and friends when we announced, almost a year in advance, that we were getting married … but the surprise wasn’t actually in the announcement, it was in hearing the plans that were forming in our (well, maybe more in mine) minds: a church, the white dress all tulle-tulle-tulle, the bridesmaids, the shades of pink, the lace. Well, it could have sounded strange that I, typically against everything traditional, found myself dreaming about something sweet, romantic, elegant and a little retrò… And then Laura came along, and she gave body and soul to that dream. She shaped it and made it tangible, she interpreted it with taste and great care, she guided us with passion, and she introduced us to many special people who created the magic of that day through many carefully-crafted details.
We fell in love with the venue, a wonderful country villa from the 1500’s, right away — love at first sight. We have been enchanted by its lightly decadent flair and its park made of trees that have been there for centuries. We could see ourselves there, dancing, smiling, holding the others' hands. From that moment everything came together naturally: the colors, the style, the atmosphere. It was actually even easier to choose my dress! The decor was a real surprise for our guests; we were actually flooded with compliments and praise from our friends and loved ones for this or that detail; for the food, mouthwatering and unique but always in line with the Italian tradition; and the table settings. Knowing that we gave a little joy to all of our guests is one of the most wonderful memories of that day.
That day ... when we couldn’t stop looking at each other with a smile. I remember entering the church with my father, who not even a month before had made us all so worried about a serious health problem. And my husband’s words when we arrived at the villa, “It’s all so beautiful!” He was probably referring to the most wonderful and emotional day of our lives to date, actually. But maybe he had also noticed the ribbons that ran on the tables that matched our color palette, the lights that were hanging through the trees, the perfume of the peonies and the roses that were everywhere … Well I haven’t asked him yet. :)
