Romantic Roman Wedding at St. Peter’s Basilica

I’m a big fan of church ceremonies; I find them beautifully traditional. But a ceremony at St. Peter’s Basilica is on a whole other level. This stunning Roman wedding evokes an almost regal feel, orchestrated by the Getting Married In Italy team and captured by the talented David Bastianoni. As we enter into the weekend, I’ll be living la dolce vita as I get lost in this stunning gallery.

From Getting Married In Italy… Getting married at the Vatican for a Catholic couple is more than just a dream. Maritess & Irwin fulfilled their wedding dream with a solemn Catholic marriage at the Vatican, the largest church in the world. They were surrounded by history and the holy during their private and intimate ceremony in the Choirs Chapel of the Basilica of St. Peter whose doors were closed for the event to pilgrims coming from all over the world.

After the ceremony, they indulged in a photo shoot inspired to the Roman Dolce Vita around the eternal city with stops at Castel Sant’Angelo, Colosseum and Lungotevere. 

Their wedding lunch was held at a private panoramic neoclassical villa dating back to the XIX and overlooking Rome, one of the most beautiful point of view of the city. A private veranda was set up with a long imperial table, decorated in black and white colors with a touch of gold: phalaenopsis, roses, hydrangeas, dahlias and anemones brightened the atmosphere against black chiffon table runners.

The bride creatively worked on wedding stationery from glittered fans to fabric bags and kids favors. The Italian taste was completed with small bottles of limoncello liqueur to thank their guests and toast to La Dolce Vita.

Al Fresco La Bandita Wedding

This stunning Bride and I? We share some common ground. We’re both obsessed with beautiful blooms. And I can only hope that my Big Day is bursting with as many pretty petals as hers, thanks to the team at Tuscany Flowers. They’re woven in all the lovely imagery from Facibeni Fotografia and set the romantic tone for this al fresco Italian fete. Head to the gallery for so much more!

From the beautiful Bride…When Nick and I got engaged, we knew that we wanted to have a destination wedding. Yet, at the same time, both of us loved the idea of an intimate backyard setting that focused on food, wine, friends and music.

As we started to look at locations everywhere from Mexico to Europe, those two ideas started to feel a little contradictory. But when we found La Bandita, everything came together.

Not only did we have the incredible food and wine of Tuscany, that backyard we always dreamed of ended up being a gorgeous Tuscan hillside (and a few dozen sheep.)

Planning isn’t exactly my strong-suit, but miraculously it worked out. The miracle behind that miraculousness was named Francesca, our wedding planner from il Canto Di Imeneo based in Montepulciano together with Martina, a short drive from Pienza where our events were based.

Once a month, Nick and I would Skype with her at 8am before work to talk details. I gave up any sense of control early on in the planning process, (we were dealing with another country and another language), but the one detail I obsessed over were the flowers. Il Canto di Imeneo suggested us Tuscany Flowers and were amazing to work with. We went back and forth via email through Francesca and Martina about specific flowers to include or exclude.

Our other godsend was John Voightmann, owner and manager of our villa and ceremony site, La Bandita. He was available and patient throughout the planning period. His staff were ninjas of gourmet perfection. Together with our wedding planners, they executed an amazing event that included a family-style seated dinner and a late-night, brick oven pizza snack – crucial to keep our friends dancing.

A friend recently told me, “I wish your wedding were a destination so that we could all go back and visit it.” I do, too. And I wish I could have another helping of that handmade gnocci and bucatini.”
