From The Couple…The reason for the shooting was our love story , one year ago we met .. It was love at first sight! We spent a whole day together : a lot of laughing , walking and holding hands .. And exactly one year later decided to memorializing the day.

I guess everyone has their favorite spot, where you forget about everything, a place where time stops .. Pavlovsk Park – is our soul, we are in love with each meter of this magical place! We decided to take on the background of the colonnade of Apollo, which is the absolute perfection of the art …

Shades of gray haze, saturated blue and pale blue perfectly fit into the overall mood of our shooting. I really wanted to show the elegance, and at the same time, ordinary negligence, elegance and tenderness. Girls understand me perfectly and made our shoot stunningly delicate, harmonious and sophisticated ..

Romantic Laduree-Inspired Tuscany Beach Wedding

If you think that an Eiffel Tower proposal in Paris on Valentine’s Day is unparalleled, just wait until you feast your eyes on the wedding captured by Facibeni Fotografia.

There’s just too much pretty to recount—the gallery speaks for itself.

From Facibeni FotografiaTuscany is widely recognized for its hills, for historical cities and great food. A few know the Versilia coast, in northern Tuscany, and its beautiful towns. Protected by the Alps on one side and the sea on the other, Versilia is a favorite destination for summer vacations in Tuscany since the ’60s. A long 30 km road separates the bathing resorts from cities full of boutiques, art, and good food. The wedding of this beautiful couple was organized in Pietrasanta, a small but lively town rich in art and craft shops, art galleries and taverns with local products. The center of Pietrasanta is the Piazza del Duomo, where is the great cathedral, completely covered with marble outside and painted with frescoes inside.

Alessandra and Massimiliano, like many other Italian couples, chose a religious ceremony in a small church and the reception at the nearby beach, inside a beach resort. After the ceremony, guests moved to the seashore for a cocktail made with sparkling wine and fresh seafood. After that, an excellent dinner prepared right at the beginning of the beach, under the stars with the sound of the sea in the background. The bride was looking for an elegant wedding. She wore a simple and dress and a long veil. The weather, as often in this area, was sunny and breezy; guests have enjoyed a romantic sunset on the sea. Enjoy!

From Il Bianco E Il RosaAlessandra and Massimiliano got in touch with me four months prior to their wedding day. They had already booked the church and the venue for the receptions. They were looking for the most suitable vendors for their French-style wedding on the beach in Tuscany. Alessandra and Massimiliano have good taste and, thank to this, were not easy to please. They were looking for a classic but chic ceremony in the church. Given the short time available and the many things to do before the wedding, I got started on it right away.

The theme they chose was “Ladurèe” – the proposal took place in Paris, on February 14th, at the 58 Restaurant on the Eiffel tower. I immediately got in touch with Facibeni Fotografia for wedding photography, as I knew they would have been perfect on this occasion. One of the photographers, Cristiano, is a master in collecting the finest details from a wedding.

The ceremony took place into the stunning Pieve di Valdicastello in Pietrasanta, and was followed by the reception in a luxurious beach resort in Forte dei Marmi. The guests enjoyed canapes on the beach before sit for dinner on the side of the beautiful swimming pool. Fireworks over the see lighted up the night. The music, played by a band that came from South of Italy for the occasion, highlighted the cake cutting, in front of many elegant and thrilled guests.

Cambodian Destination Wedding

From the Bride and Groom… This event was about much more than just our wedding – it was about bringing together family, friends and loved ones to experience a new place, culture and set of traditions together. We currently live in New York City (and Matt is originally from Boston), so while Ratavy’s family is Cambodian, many of the people who traveled with us on this trip were from the US. And for many of them, this was their first trip to Asia. We knew that this was a once-in-a-lifetime trip for many of the people coming, so we wanted to organize a trip around Southeast Asia, and ensure that it would be a memorable journey from start to finish.

The two weeks before the wedding ceremonies, me, Ratavy, & our closest friends and family traveled to Bangkok, Siem Reap and Phnom Penh, exploring all of the unique things those places had to offer. From navigating Bangkok’s incredible rooftop bar scene, to taking in the beauty of a sunrise over Angkor Wat, to charting a boat down a Cambodian river and riding elephants to the top of a mountain for a breathtaking sunset, everyone on the trip got to experience something totally new, and they did so together. It is impossible to capture everything that happened over those two weeks in a short video clip, but this teaser beautifully captures the essence of the journey, the sentiment of the group, and the epic proportion of the events that transgressed.

The actual wedding festivities took place over a day and a half period, which was reduced from the typical three-day traditional Cambodian ceremony. This was the first exposure to a traditional Cambodian wedding for both Ratavy and I, so we were learning on the fly, showing gratitude and respect at each step along the way, and focused on ensuring that we didn’t make a total fool of ourselves. The ceremonies ranged from the Melymuka family presenting a plethora of fruit as a gift to Ratavy’s family, to a “hair cutting” event where friends and family symbolically snipped away the past to prepare us for our future together, to a ritual with a line of nine monks positioned directly in front of us, chanting in unison. The ceremonies were a huge success, involved plenty of bowing, and provided great exposure to a new and different set of cultural traditions for everyone.

From White AgencyBabsi and Luke’s dream was to find the perfect wedding venues that were supposed to absolutely “wow” their wedding guests. It was a difficult choice as Prague, where the couple got hitched, is magical everywhere you look, especially in late November with Advent spirit in the air.

Apart from showing the guests the breathtaking beauty and history of Prague, this lovely couple wanted everyone to feel like they are in a winter wonderland the entire day.

The cozy Christmas atmosphere shined through the day. There were lots of natural elements like cones (traditional for Czech Christmas), wooden branches, gold details and red berries. The ceremony chapel was full of candle lights.

After the ceremony the guests were brought to a palace at the Prague Castle to be welcomed with cranberry spiced champagne and the sounds of a live harp. There was a Czech version of a Viennese cake party ready for them – a sweets bar with traditional Czech Christmas sweets and a gorgeous wedding naked cake with fresh berries. It was meant to be, as the Bride said, “A Czech tea and cake party – with a bit of alcohol ;)”. Mulled wine and hot chocolate bars were located outside on the Palace’s terrace so the guests could enjoy the wonderful views of Prague with something yummy and warm in their hands while listening to live Spanish guitar.

To help the guests mingle and have fun together, there was also a superb micro-magician that was loved by everyone including the kids.

In the evening all 30 wedding guests dined in an upscale restaurant located by the feet of the Charles Bridge. Christmas and love was all around.

Villa

From the Bride… Tarek and I met and live in Miami, Florida. I was born and raised in the Bahamas but all my extended family lives in Italy. Tarek was born and raised in Toronto but his family origins are from Pakistan and India. We both moved to Miami for work and met through a mutual friend. Shortly after, Tarek requested me on Facebook where we chatted for a few weeks before we met each other again. Our first date was lunch at our favorite sushi restaurant. We hit it off right away and talked so much that we didn’t even realize a few hours had passed and it was dinner time. We sat there for over 6 hours. I’m surprised we didn’t get kicked out! We dated for 3 years before Tarek took me back to the same sushi restaurant for dinner and popped the question. The rest is history! Family is very important to the both of us. When discussing on where to get married we knew we wanted to have a destination wedding and wanted our family and most important friends to be there. We really wanted to spend some quality time, over several days, with the people that mean the most to us. Since most of my family lives in Italy and Tarek’s family lives in several different places we decided on Florence, Italy. It was near to where my family lived and would be an easy city for people to travel into. We chose to have our wedding at Villa di Maiano for it’s location and stunning view. The villa and its property have been around since the late 1400′s and is located right outside of Florence. We had 115 guests so we needed somewhere close enough to the city to make it easy to transport people to and from the hotel. We also fell in love with the amazing gardens surrounding the property and the view of Florence from its terrace. A lot of our friends and family were traveling from all over the world so we wanted to guarantee they had a great time and had a few surprises in store for them. The wedding party and the groom arrived at the villa in a 1962 VW van, which fits Tarek’s fun personality! I arrived in a 1978 Excalibur. The guests were all transported by bus. The symbolic ceremony took place on the terrace overlooking some vineyards on one side and Florence on the other side. The apperitif took place in the Italian gardens where we had different food corners including a meat and cheese corner, a fried food corner and a grilled fish corner. The caterer was Galateo, who coincidently also catered Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s wedding! My favorite part of the apperitif was a water fountain that we had filled with rose petals. I fell in love with it! The dinner was upstairs in the regular gardens. We were very lucky that we had great weather! It had been raining almost all summer in Italy, which is very unusual. I was so stressed out the weeks prior to the wedding, but we were blessed with 3 days of beautiful weather! We started off the dancing to an amazing live band. We didn’t want a traditional American style cake so we opted instead to have a millefoglie cake made in front of the guests. It was something different and fun. The chef came out and layer by layer constructed this humongous cake in front of everyone. It was a hit! We had organized for fireworks to go off once Tarek and I cut our first slice of cake. It was a great surprise for everyone. It was definitely very romantic and special. We also had a photo booth and an ice-cream truck for the guests. After midnight we brought the party inside where the DJ continued and also to our surprise played the saxophone. It was by far the most memorable and special day of our lives so far! The rain started again at 2 a.m. that night! But at that point we didn’t care anymore because our wedding weekend was over.
