Looking for a reason to jet off to the wonderful little paradise known as Venice? Well, here you go my friends: a drop-dead gorgeous + seriously elegant Italian wedding that is all about the pretty and all about the romance. Think a blush-hued masterpiece planned by My Italian Wedding with ruffles and gold as far as the eye can see. Check out every beautiful moment captured by Aljosa Videtic in the full gallery.
From the Bride… I had no idea Scott was going to propose when he did. I was supposed to be going out for girls’ night, or so I thought, but Scott had my friend in on his plan. I was completely surprised and couldnt have been happier. We talked about different options for the wedding and as soon as we talked about a Venice wedding, we both got super excited. This is because travelling has always been a big part of our relationship. Our first trip together was to Paris a couple months after we started dating so a wedding in Venice felt perfect. We were very lucky to have 24 of our family and friends fly from Los Angeles to Venice for the wedding festivities. The wedding was absolutely perfect and we wouldn’t have changed anything.
The color theme was all around gold, white, blush and pink tones… this was reflected in my dress choice, too.
Of all the dresses I tried on this dress was the most unique and when I tried it on I fell in love with it. It even fit me perfect. I only had to have it shortened a couple inches. I loved the color of the dress, the detail in the top portion and the design of the skirt. The most special part of the dress is the color. At first glance it looks champagne, but it pulls color from lighting around it. Sometimes it looks blush even.
From My Italian Wedding… Danielle and Scott contacted us last year because they wanted to get married in Venice. They are travellers from LA and they visited this city a few years ago. They completely felt in love with its beauty and so they decided to have an intimate destination wedding here. They wanted something “really Venetian” but at the same time not commercial (they did not wanted a hotel or a structured accomodation) which give them and their guests a true experience. So we found this decadent villa in Canareggio, one of the quietest and traditional districts in Venice, which was full of character and dusted furniture and mirrors… literally there was a room full of sofas and chairs that we took out from the dark and arranged in the main hall and in the terrace. The gold wallpapered room was completely empty, so was the terrace where the symbolic ceremony took place. We used a lot of pom poms in different size and shapes (ordered on UK and all hand carried around Venice in our little luggages!), cushions to decorate the old sofas and vintage table cloths for the reception tables. And lots of white, pink and blush flowers which gave a romantic touch to the decadent look of the villa.
