Boho Chic Wedding on the Beaches of Anguilla

If you’ve ever dreamed of a wedding on the beaches of the Caribbean, glistening ocean as the backdrop with sand squished between your toes – take note from this Anguilla “I do.” Destination wedding extraordinaire, Michelle Rago brought her expertise to the table with paper pretties by Cheree Berry Paper, and it all made for an epic day captured by Braedon Photography. This way to sunny skies and so much more.

From Michelle Rago Destinations… The bride’s father has a gorgeous home on Anguilla where we were able to host both the ceremony and cocktails, which created such a sense of intimacy and family. Eliza was able to get ready in her bedroom and walk straight out past the pool and face the sea for their ceremony.

The inspiration was Bohemian Chic for ceremony. We created a chuppah out of driftwood collected throughout the year and adorned with orchids and hydrangea. We also accentuated the aisle with manzanita and orchids.

The reception dinner and late night fun took place at the Malliouhana Hotel, where Eliza and Chris got engaged. We transformed the restaurant which sits on a cliff overlooking the ocean.

The ceiling was strung with orchids and hanging candles which twinkled and swayed in the breeze. The centerpieces were all white, lush and low. The flowers were white hydrangea and dendrobium and phalaenopsis orchids. We created a lounge for dancing under the stars after dinner and then moved guests up to the pool for late night dance party with fun lighting!

Santorini Set the Stage for a Modern, Minimalist Wedding We Adore

Ever since I first saw The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, Santorini has held the #1 spot on my travel bucket list. I mean, with scenery like this can you even blame me? It’s a slice of heaven on earth and Nikki and Vinod felt the very same. They exchanged vows in this incredible locale, with vendors like Santorini Glam WeddingsBetty Flowers Santorini and Ben Yew by their side. The result? Utter perfection.

From Santorini Glam WeddingsIf we had to describe Santorini in two words then it would definitely be “white” and “unique view”. Nikki and Vinod’s wedding took place at Rocabella Hotel, a venue which combines these two words and provides the perfect white canvas for us to work on!

Of course, such a special place needs discreet and delicate decoration in order to complete the unique landscape and not overshadow it. We started the planning process only a few months prior to the wedding, and I have to admit that when our journey reached this spectacular day, all I wanted was for this day to last as long as possible.

Nikki had a very clear idea of what she likes, and I just loved the way she wanted to incorporate Greek elements into the decoration and styling of the wedding. I still remember those late evening (early morning for her) Skype calls brainstorming all possible ideas until we found the perfect elements for her dream wedding!

What made this wedding so special, apart from the couple of course, was the amazing team of people working behind it. We always advise and guide our couples to pick their vendors carefully. When you work with people you trust and who share the same vision as you, the result is unbelievable.

A Moody, Fall Wedding on the Amalfi Coast

I went to the Amalfi Coast as a college student, and I’m pretty sure all my travel dreams came true right then and there. It’s easily the most romantic spot on earth, so it’s no wonder that’s where Caroline and Sebastian chose to say I Do. With less than three months to plan, Exclusive Italy Weddings came on boards to orchestrated the event and Flower Addicted designed incredible blooms you have to see, with more inside the gallery captured by Nancy Ebert.

From Laura of Exclusive Italy Weddings… August, crazy hot day, I am back in the office after coordinating a wonderful wedding that filled me with joy (and pride!) when the phone rings: a sweet voice tells me all about the wedding plans she and her fiancée have and cheers me up even more. Caroline, the bride, is very attentive to style and design, and wants to organize a truly personalized event in the Amalfi Coast, planned down to the very last detail. I am also very attentive to details and I immediately understand how she envisions the event and the style she wants. The biggest challenge? Her event is less than three months away! But I love challenges, and I particularly loved this one!

The inspiration for the wedding is a very romantic mood, a country chic style mixed with elements representing Italian traditions and its historical heritage. The floral decorations – superbly realized by Flower Addicted – are a feast of romantic flowers in ancient amphorae.

For the ceremony, Flower Addicted built a gorgeous flower arch set between two old olive trees, filled with hundreds of pastel flowers: white lisianthus, pink garden roses, dahlias… The aisle was lined with white terracotta vases filled with the same flowers in hues of white and pale pink. These delicate tones complemented perfectly the outdoor setting surrounded by the blue sky and sea.

The long reception table was a traditional Italian table used for celebrations in the southern regions of Italy facing the Mediterranean, featuring a decorative wooden structure above it which made it so special! It was dressed with crisp linen cloths and adorned with garden roses, David Austin roses, nigella, scabious, lilac, lisianthus, dahlias and small fruit compositions with grapes, pomegranates and small apples.

Another precious detail was the stationery created by the super talented Italian creative duo Shhh My Darling: painted on Carta d’Amalfi – a luxury handmade paper which is a renowned local tradition dating back to the 13th century – the stationery featured beautiful watercolor details of Villa Cimbrone, the wonderful historical villa when the event took place. Also the customized tote bags were decorated with a country theme and details of the villa.

At sunset the table was enlightened by dozens of candles and lanterns, and the wind moved the tambourines decorated with words about love, friendship, poetry and romance, making soft and gentle sounds. Such a romantic atmosphere!
