When it comes right down to it, a wedding dressed in white and ivory with touches of gold will win my vote for classic every time. And when you set that soiree amongst the lemon trees at Villa Aurelia in Italy, it becomes a traditional al fresco fete like no other. With Raffaella Alflatt of WedinItaly behind every lovely detail, Nabis Studio captured the whole thing right here!
From Raffaella Alflatt of WedinItaly… This beautiful Jewish ceremony took place in a hot summer day in Rome last August. The couple and their parents, all originally from Iran, but now based in London, are absolutely in love with the eternal city and when we met the first time they explained that they had no hesitation when it came to pick their wedding destination.
Sahar & Arash flew to Rome on a cold winter day and we drove them around the 7 hills. When we arrived at Villa Aurelia we immediately saw the lights in their eyes ! There was no doubt that was going to be the perfect frame for their dream wedding. Planning the rest of the wedding was such a pleasure for all our team : with such a smiling happy couple was easy to organise the most simple , chic and elegant wedding as in Wedinitaly perfect style!
The heat on the day was quite extreme on the Gianicolo hill, but when Simona and her fantastic team started to place the centre pieces on the tables all the staff that was working hard to set up the dinner, the stage for Kamy R Band , the Chuppah stopped… the stunning crispy white flowers were so amazingly fresh! Rabbi Barbara officiated a wonderful ceremony under the beautiful Chuppah set up by Floralia Decor, blending Iranian, Italian and American traditions.
Aperitif & dinner were magnificently set up by Salza catering with a menu including Chilled Melon soup with Porto gelèe Green Ravioli with Aubergine & Ricotta cheese served with cherry tomatoes and fresh basil, Braid of Sea Bass en Papillote served with Chlorophylla sauce, Crème fraîche and crispy salad of vegetables and fruit, Pear, Vodka and Rosemary Sorbet With Rosemary sprig. Finally the gorgeous wedding cake was prepared by Angela Mazzucco at Non Solo Torte with the mastery that has characterised the hundred of wedding cakes she has prepared in the last 10 years for so many Romans and not only weddings.
Special thanks to Massimiliano and Chiara at Nabis Photography for framing this wonderful crispy day!
