An Italian Wedding That’s Not Afraid of Color

You know how they say Paris is always a good idea? I feel that way about Florence. It’s a fairytale city rich in history, making the ultimate Italian wedding backdrop. Throw in pops of cheery colors, a must-see cake from Tuscan Wedding Cakes and photography by Sophie Epton, and we’re in businesses. More in The Vault!

From Sophie EptonWords cannot even begin to describe the magic of this incredible wedding day! Jennifer and Jesse’s fairy tale wedding took place on top of one of the most beautiful cities in the world, Florence, Italy and the day was full of so much love and light (and all the champagne!) This celebration was such a joy to photograph, and a true feast for the eyes. The ceremony and reception both took place on the hotel landing that literally overlooked the entire city and created a breathtakingly beautiful focal point for the entire day.

Gorgeous colorful blooms and lanterns punctuated every landscape, and sweet details such as mini olive oil bottle favors and the most amazing Firenze inspired invite made a big impact on guests. After the sun started to set, the party was set ablaze with a sparkling champagne tower while everyone danced against the Italian starry night.

The next day, Jennifer and Jesse got dressed up once more for a “day after” session as we chased light all over Firenze..from the Boboli Gardens and Pitti Palace to the quiet streets of the Oltrarno side of the city. Jennifer was the most radiant bride, and we laughed all day amongst the hustle and bustle of historic Florence. This truly was one for the books, and I hope it inspires many other couples to chase your wanderlust dreams and always get married where your heart desires!

Romance and Greece Meet in this Stunning Inspiration Sesh

I love ALL destination weddings, I really, really do.  But a destination wedding in the Mykonos Islands? That’s a special kind of celebration – and the talented Live Love is showing us just how truly awesome it can be.  Think dreamy florals from Studio 7 Florescence and a stunning Costarellos gown… just to name a few of the pretty details.  See it all captured by Elias Kordelakos in THE VAULT and in a beautiful film from Lux Filmography below.

From Live Love… Having visited Mykonos so many times it’s hard to tell when exactly the idea for this photo shoot was born.

The bright sun, the Mediterranean blue, the endless horizon and the white houses of Mykonos feel like they’ve casted a spell and inspired emotions no one can resist and it felt like the scenery chose us for this bold and unique project.

While trying to find an out of the ordinary venue to host our project, we consulted our concierge expert Yannis Stasinopoulos of the Luxury Concierge we came across to The One Mykonos private villas in Agios Yannis, a small village with enormous scenery in the south-east side of Mykonos.

We brought together romantic pink and luxury pink gold which led us to a chic and dreamy result for our photo shoot captured by the creative eyes of the photographer Elias Kordelakos.

Nude pink linen combined with a touch of gold cutlery, all provided by White Lilac, was our table setting which was next completed and uplifted by the upside down flower arrangement hanging on top of the table. We decided not to go with the expected centerpiece and Studio 7 Mykonos undertook to make it possible. Of course it wouldn’t be a complete setting without elegant and classy stationery created by the talented Pavlos Leventellis of the Atelier Invitations.

In keeping with the romantic theme our model is wearing a harmonious yet astounding white wedding dress by Christos Costarellos to match the beauty of the island. The fuchsia flower headpiece on her hair is ascending the look and so is the beautiful and elegant make up done by Irene Chaleli and classy styled hair by Vassilis P. Diamantopoulos Hair Studio.

Taste is also a sense that needs to be pleased in a wedding and that’s why we decided to create a delicious and inviting buffet for the cheese and cold meat lovers especially, put together by ARIA Fine Catering and showcased on beautiful white consoles of Zazoo Event Rentals that also provided the rest of the furnitures. As for the exceptional cake, Pavlov’s Lab put all its effort to impress us and it really did.

As the sun sets in Mykonos, Sounds Good undertook to enlighten us along with our setting and unveil another more playful/party point of view.

All of the above could never have been concluded without the help of the FSD event logistics agency that arranged the transportation of all the needed details so as to have such a result.

Last but not least, so as to trigger more senses and convey emotions, Christina Kontoyannis of Lux filmography created a journey to the wonderful island of Mykonos through icons and music, trying to share the sweat taste that such a project left in each and every one that participated.

Live Love the event maker is here to make dreams come true through avant-garde aesthetics and successful planning skills.

From Hey LookElina & Laurence were dreaming of an elegant, tropical destination wedding in Cuba. Old-wordly glamour, palm trees, striking architecture and vibrant colours. For budget- and simple logistical reasons however, their dreams and reality just did not want to meet. Their planned ceremony and wedding in a traditional Finnish location were far from the tropical atmosphere they had wished for.

So, we created this little “elopement” from their wedding for them – a wedding session with the feel of their dreams in a location almost just outside their door steps. The Helsinki botanical garden offered the perfect setting – incredible flora, gorgeous architecture and a tropical climate.
