Vespas and umbrian feasts are two very awesome ways to incorporate Italy into a California wedding. It also helps to have a team of wedding elves to take that vision and make it a reality. Talents like Sweet Marie DesignsLVL Weddings & Events and wildly beautiful images by Ashley Kelemen. Together they masterminded an elegant affair filled with white blooms and al fresco details. See it all unfold here.


From Ashley KelemenKate and Nate’s wedding was an absolute dream. They carefully incorporated so many personal details, and created a Umbrian feast to remember. From their custom Italian meal from Heirloom LA to the rented Vespa the Kate surprised Nate with, the wedding day was special from beginning to end. Sweet Marie Designs’ signature florals were stunning as always, and included a hidden artichoke in the brides bouquet (which held special meaning to the bride and groom) and cumquats in the arrangements for a touch of whimsy. Kate and Nate’s wedding artfully highlighted the things they love most as a couple — family, friends, food and wine.

From Heather of LVL Events...Washington DC love birds imagined a California wedding that was more than going through the motions of tradition, that truly encompassed who they are as a couple and provided an intimate dinner party to share with friends and family. The dinner party theme was born and allowed us to incorporate the textured, details and feel of their travels and celebrations in Orvieto, Italy.
