Say hello to modern Cinderella glass slippers—these jewel encrusted Miu Miu heels. I'm completely uhbsessed and pretty sure they'd be my shoe of choice if I were a ballroom Bride. At a ballroom wedding planned by A Charming Fete, to boot. Every corner is tucked with blooms, and personalized details like the gold foiled "That's Amore" cocktail napkins for this couple with deep Italian roots. Like what you see? Lauren Gabrielle has more waiting for you in THE VAULT!
From A Charming Fete...We worked closely with this gorgeous New York couple, Nicole and Robert, to plan and design their impeccably elegant and timeless wedding celebration. Both the bride and groom have deep rooted Italian heritage so we wanted to weave in some cultural elements while still keeping the tone refined and sophisticated. The couple chose to wed in a gorgeous historic Roman Catholic church in the bride’s hometown near Youngstown, Ohio. Nicole has exquisite taste and carefully selected each element from the most beautiful gold foil custom stationery suite down to her jewel encrusted Miu Miu heels. She was the picture of perfection throughout the entire day, donning a gorgeous silk slip and robe number during hair and makeup application and then changing into the most beautiful Mark Zunino gown and cathedral veil. Robert was a perfect complement to her beauty, looking dapper and polished in a tailored navy tuxedo with sharp black lapel. From a design aspect, we wanted to maintain a soft dreamy color palette mostly all whites and creams with the softest blush nude tones. Cloudlike lush florals full of garden roses and spray roses in the softest colors popped against the rich gold accents on the tablescape. The sweets table showcased samplings of mini cannoli from the best local Italian pastry shop alongside other traditional cookies. This was all just an accent to the beautiful three tiered wedding cake with intricate sugar flower and metallic gold detailing. Gold foil cocktail napkins inscribed with “That’s Amore” were passed with hors d'oeuvres and southern Italian limoncello was served at the bar throughout the evening. It was truly an honor to be a part of their special day!
