A Colorful And Charming Garden Anniversary Wedding

This special day pops with bursts of bright and beautiful color! Beckon Events planned the vibrant day, and helped to fill it with whimsical touches that make our hearts sing. Just wait until you see the champagne escort card wall! Flowers by Kara Nash Designs pop up in wild and unexpected ways, like a beautiful bench surrounded by blooms. Kati Rosado Photography captured all of the beautiful details perfectly in her inspired images, you can see them all in the full gallery.




From the bride… My vision was a formal garden party with a classic yet whimsical feel. Serendipitously, because our original venue did not reopen for events in time, the event was held at my parents’ home and in Seneca, SC.



We wanted our guests to feel both relaxed yet enchanted by their surroundings, with lots of spread-out lounge space and smaller dinner tables set a safe 6 feet apart, seating everyone with their immediate family members or friend groups. I wanted tables identified by types of flowers rather than numbers and for guests to be welcomed by a champagne wall.



I am also thankful that I was able to see my dream event, two years in the making with the amazing Beckon Events, come to life so exquisitely and that Kati Rosado Photography was able to capture it in such a stunning and timeless way. It was well worth the wait.

Capucine Floral Atelier composed the most enchanting tangle of blooms for the bridal bouquet, spilling with delicate tendrils and trailing silk ribbon from plant-dyed ribbon artisan, Silk & Willow.

This Couple Eloped Due To Covid Then Had The Wedding Celebration Of Their Dreams!

Talk about being worth the wait! After a quick elopement during the pandemic, our couple decided to have the wedding celebration of their dreams with the sweetest of news- the bride was expecting! The day expertly planned by Riley Loves Lulu couldn’t have been more beautiful, complete with a stylish escort card display by Inkinity Studio with calligraphy and wax seals on each guest’s card. The florist, Vo Floral Design, grows many of her own flowers and created incredible pieces that were organic and timeless. The Ganeys beautifully captured the love of the day in their elegant imagery, you can see all the darling details in the full gallery.




From The GaneysMatt and Maddie had a micro wedding in their family’s backyard during Covid. Even with that perfect day, they had been holding onto their plans of a big Menlo Circus Club wedding. A few months before their “vow renewal” they got the sweet news that they were expecting – and just weeks before their celebration, they found out they were having a baby girl!



The wedding ceremony took place under the oak behind Menlo Circus Club. Maddie’s brother officiated the wedding (he did such a great job during their microwedding, they asked him to do it again!). Emily, Matt’s sister, sang beautifully as Maddie walked down the aisle. They exchanged vows and held hands throughout the ceremony.



The wedding reception had an elevated black, white, and blue color scheme. After over a year of anticipation, everyone was ready to dance! It was truly an epic celebration.

After 22 loving years together, this couple decided to tie the knot and their wedding day was nothing short of epic! The team at John Lupton Events paid special mind to the couple’s combined interests and weaved it into the theme of the day beautifully. Both their love of travel to the UK and their prized Rolls Royce made appearances in fun and unique ways. This long-lasting love was beautifully captured in the elegant imagery by Demi Mabry Photography. Visit the full gallery for a closer look at all the special touches.




From Demi Mabry PhotographyJoe and Chris met on a project at work in Charlotte, NC. After 22 years together, Chris turned to Joe and said, “it’s time.” These two finally stood before their friends and family in a beautiful, fall wedding in Blowing Rock, NC!



Their morning wedding honors their parents, as each of them was wed in the morning. The British traditions – their custom morning suits and tea – honors Chris’ heritage. They also spend frequent time in the UK as Rolls Royce owners. These two LOVE their vintage Rolls Royce and enjoyed incorporating it into their wedding day!

Romantic Texas Hill-Country Wedding with Holiday Flair!

Looking to deck the halls at your December wedding? This Texas Hill-Country wedding with holiday flair proves that getting married during the holidays doesn’t necessarily mean you need the classic red and green color palette! Rose Andrew Events and The Flower Girl tastefully incorporated rich colors and textures into this lovely day at Stonehouse Villa. Every heartfelt moment was flawlessly captured by Sarah Stiponovich. If you’re on the hunt for ways to showcase this special time of the year for your own winter nuptials, browse through the full gallery to see every last detail! 

From Emily of Rose Andrew Events… Emily & Drew met at work and began dating shortly thereafter—they went on 4 dates the first week they began seeing each other! On their second date, they were given a lucky $2 bill by a man who said he keeps them in his pocket in honor of his late wife and gifts them to couples who clearly look in love *SWOON*. Years later, Drew proposed on a beautiful morning after a sunrise hike in the Colorado mountains. One of the most special parts of Emily & Drews nuptials is that it was true celebration of both families coming together. They kept with a family tradition and got married at the same venue that all of the bride’s siblings wed at— a beautiful Hill Country Wedding venue that is down the street from her family home—Stonehouse Villa. Many of the guests had been there time and time again to celebrate each Peter child and it was special to hear guests reminisce about each wedding they attended as they celebrated Emily & Drew. As guests were welcomed, they saw framed wedding photos of parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles, and siblings from both sides of the family. Emily and Drew toasted with the same gold goblets that her parents used at their wedding and cut their cake under sparkling disco balls with a cake knife that has been passed through her family. And, Emily’s dad is a vintage car collector and they used a different car for each of their wedding weekend festivities—they rolled up to their rehearsal dinner in a vintage white mustang and to their wedding in a classic Rolls Royce—the very same one that all of her siblings arrived and exited their wedding with. Drew’s father was even his best man!

Emily wore a Sarah Seven gown, modern gold hoop earrings and a beautiful veil that was handmade by her mother— complete with hundreds of hand sewn on pearls! Her lovely bridesmaids wore black gowns in mismatching textures of chiffon, velvet and silk. Drew and his groomsmen wore custom tuxes.

Our bride LOVES Christmas and wanted to incorporate holiday elements without it feeling like a “Christmas wedding.” What came to fruition was a beautiful day rich in color, textures and special elements that had a lot of holiday/winter flair without it feeling overtly Christmas-y. We designed a reception with luxe velvet throughout—from the caramel table linens to the plush dusty Rose velvet napkins to the sage velvet table numbers and bar menu to the black and maroon velvet ribbons tied on the menus. Kari from The Flower Girl TX created the most spectacular florals for E&D’s big day— complete with a lush tiered ground ceremony arch and hundreds of buds vases filled to the brim with blooms. She incorporated pops of mauves, deeps reds and greens in the florals. Koozies were passed to guests with a custom design that said “All I Want for Christmas is Drew”—after 2 weeks of dating, Drew called his siblings and when they answered he said “I’m in love, I’m in love and I don’t care who knows it!” so we included Buddy the Elf on the koozies in memory of that famous movie quote. The band also ended the night with The song “All I Want for Christmas is You” and guests donned Santa and elf hats, light up Christmas light necklaces and Santa cowboy hats. Our bride was voted “karaoke queen” in high school and proved her skills by singing “I Wanna Dance with Somebody” (her go to karaoke song) at their reception—complete with a “leg guitar” solo…

Emily & Drew love to travel the world together and collect photo albums from each of their trips. We were inspired by the mountains that Drew proposed to Emily in front of and their love for travel throughout their day! Guests signed a National Geographic coffee table book, there was a hand painted rendering of the view where Drew proposed on their dinner menu and a beautiful mountaintop escort display in varying shades.

Stylish Two Day Inspiration Shoot Turned Proposal

Two styled shoots, two incredible photographers, one real-life proposal! Our first idyllic inspiration takes place at 620 LOFT AND GARDEN. Filled with elevated elegance, McSween Photography captured the magic of a NYC rooftop and Lost Coast Photography showed us to Bethesda Gardens through her lens. The second day was shot at Central Park and the New York Public Library. The best part? The photo shoot turned into a proposal! Check out both jaw-dropping days in the full gallery.




From Britt Jones Co.While being in one of the most iconic wedding venues in the city, it is crucial that you pick elements that complement its stunning gardens and views. The inspiration of the shoot was a secret garden black-tie affair.



We chose a color palette with creams, golds, and a signature pop of black. The black served as a nod to the Great Gatsby era which is so widely celebrated in New York. The day left you imagining what an elevated real wedding this would have been.



There is truly nowhere in the city that compares when it comes to stunning views of the skyline. In order to compliment Top of the Rock’s power to take your breath away, we paired it with a gown that is just as breathtaking. This full, ruffled Marchesa gown was focal point of this stunning bridal shoot-turned proposal. Yes, you heard it – PROPOSAL. Our groom model actually proposed to our bride model in the midst of this skyline shoot. It was truly a dream!

You Won’t Believe How This Tennis Court Was Transformed For This 60th Birthday Party!

This “Sixty and Sensational” 60th birthday party was such a dream, it’s hard to imagine that the entire party took place on a completely transformed and unrecognizable tennis court! With cozy lounges, an intimate floral-filled dinner table, and a cake that was truly a work of art, this fête is one guests won’t soon forget!

From the planning team at A Good Affair:
“We were so excited to get to create a very special birthday for one of our legacy clients. It is always so much fun to design for someone we have worked with before as we know everything they love most. Bonnie is one special lady and for her 60th birthday her daughter, husband, and son wanted to spoil her the way she spoils everyone special in her life! Natalie knew exactly what she wanted to do with the tennis court on their private property.

She knew a bright and vibrant color palette would be perfect just like Bonnie’s personality. She created a color palette in shades of pinks to deep plum brought to life in the florals and with gorgeous ombre taper candles nestled in the floral table runner. Transforming the properties tennis court to create a magical fairytale environment with the highlight being a ceiling of thousands of twinkle lights. The summer evening was perfect in every way! Guests enjoyed cocktails and appetizers upon arrival at the top of the property where a 60 & Sensational backdrop was made with photographs from Bonnie’s life.

They then enjoyed a stroll through the trees strung with romantic twinkle lights down to the party below. It felt so magical and inspiring! Guests choose tableside entrees with a multi course gourmet meal provided by Made by Meg Catering. The fabulous musical duo, Kismet serenaded the night away and played many of Bonnie’s favorite songs. The birthday cake was thoughtfully designed to incorporate the gorgeous color palette with a chic and glam look. Grace and Honey cakes did an amazing job including hand making sugar flowers and rice paper sculptures that adorned the tiered confection. The entire evening was perfect in every way!”

This Butterfly-Inspired Wedding at The Anderson House Will Make Your Heart Flutter!

This dreamy wedding Washington DC’s idyllic Larz Anderson House is bound to give you butterflies! Inspired by the symbolism of the ever-beautiful winged creatures, Bright Occasions planned a day that represented love, rebirth, and hope. Every aspect – from Petals & Promises’ florals to the delicate, gilded wedding cake by Jenny Baked It –  was intentionally chosen to surround the happy couple with visions of love in the prettiest purples and pops of citrus hues. Stop by the full gallery, captured by Costola Photography, for all the pretty details that’ll make your heart flutter!

From Costola PhotographyOur romantic yet modern wedding was inspired by butterflies. Butterflies are not only magnificent creatures, but they have a beautiful symbolism of hope, rebirth and life. From small and humble caterpillars, butterflies transform themselves into beautiful and colorful winged creatures. For many people butterflies have significance. In ancient Rome, butterflies represented marriage and weddings. And when two butterflies are seen flying together or following each other, it represents undying love.

Butterflies have such joyful colors and patterns that draw you to them, with this in mind we incorporated lush florals in shades of periwinkle, lavender, peach, butter yellow with greenery. We chose to feature a ceremony in the round, with florals coming up around the couple. Like butterflies, circles have beautiful meanings especially when it relates to marriage – unity, wholeness and completion. We carried over a similar style with the flowers down a dramatic tablescape. Place settings were a mix of modern and vintage for a great whimsical design. Completed with hand-written place cards in the shape of a butterfly.

Our shoot was set at the stunning Larz Anderson House, a Gilded Age Beaux-Arts style mansion located in Washington, DC. The Andersons used the home to entertain and showcase their impressive collection of fine art and artifacts that the couple acquired while traveling. In addition to their impressive home, their garden became one of the most published and influential landscapes in the early 20th century. We chose to set-up our shoot to highlight both the interior and exterior architecture at the Anderson House.

One of my favorite details was our petite gilded wedding cake with soft purple flowers. Proving that a cake doesn’t need to be large to make a statement. I also loved the coordinated bouquets our brides carried with simple greenery and periwinkle buds. Our beautiful brides wore Margot by Ines Di Santo with an illusion back and statement bow. And a Romona Keveza jumpsuit with a Homs veil that we used as a detachable train.

A Travel Lover’s Dream At This European Inspired Texas Hill Country Wedding

When the bride is a wedding planner you know every little detail will be thought out- and it was! Christine, the owner of Houston Soirée, planned her own wedding day to perfection. Her custom crest was featured throughout each part of her day in subtle but impactful areas, even on a custom dance floor!

You can see all the pretty in the full gallery.

Garret made a plan to visit them both in-town and one date turned into two. Fast forward through four years of dating, the pair planned an international trip for Christine’s birthday. It was at the Eiffel Tower that Garret asked Christine to marry him, and of course, she said yes!



Houston Oaks was the perfect venue for this couple. It provides such an amazing backdrop for a European-inspired wedding day. With Southern France and Italy feeling landscaping, French architecture in the Ladies Lounge, the iconic 15th-century French chapel that was brought over and placed where it stands today.



Overall the design came together so beautifully- the Italian greens and French blues paired so well with subtle pinks throughout, every detail was picture perfect. And most importantly, Christine and Garrett made so many amazing memories that day that they’ll be able to re-live through their photos.

Boho yet garden chic vibes were artfully orchestrated in the florals by Lilla Bespoke Floral Design.

It was a sight to behold, beautifully captured in the stunning imagery by bonphotage. Get lost in all the beauty in the full gallery.




From bonphotageKyla and Madison’s Puglia destination wedding was out of a dream. The white backdrop of the stunning Masseria Grieco in contrast to the bold and lush florals and natural vegetation from the region made it a dramatic and elegant location for this stunning wedding.



This LA-based couple decided on a destination wedding to escape the fast-paced life of the city and bring all their friends together to an unexpected location. The ceremony had a large, circular arch as a parallel to the symbolism behind the wedding bands.



With the use of pampas grass, cappuccino and toffee garden roses, lisianthus, olive greens, and other local foliage the aesthetic of the wedding complimented the location. It was an incredible celebration of two wonderful people finding each other and being surrounded by so much love and joy.

Jen Huang of Jen Huang Photography

I approach photography with a romantic, fine art sensibility. My imagery is understated yet evocative, resulting from clear and polished creative direction that elicits light-filled, painterly portraits. My use of fresh and simple composition, and natural light has evolved from a deep love and respect for the old masters – Rembrandt, Vermeer, Botticelli. I am a fiercely dedicated medium format film photographer and my creative process is imaginative, industrious and detailed. In each capture, I aim for perfection and beauty.

Over the last ten years, my work has taken me to spectacular celebrations and sophisticated soirees in over twenty countries on six different continents. Past clients have included prominent global leaders, celebrated directors and actors, and distinguished executives. I have been named one of the top 25 film photographers in the world and a “photographer’s photographer” by Martha Stewart Weddings. My work has been featured in numerous international publications, including Rangefinder, Elle, Harper’s Bazaar, Town & Country Weddings, Brides Magazine, The Knot, Martha Stewart Magazine, The Boston Globe and New York Magazine. My clients describe my work as “painterly,” “nuanced,” “refined” and I am honored to be a leading choice amongst internationally acclaimed planners and designers. 

I am a native New Yorker living in Southern California. When I am not working, I can be found renovating a hundred-year-old home with my husband, two rambunctious little boys, and a silly french bulldog named Gatsby.

 

Jenny Quicksall of Jenny Quicksall Photography

Hi—I’m Jenny, a Los Angeles Wedding Photographer who’s fueled by a fresh-air adventure, great fashion finds, and a good spa day (or two). 

Growing up, I was always the unofficial photographer among my friends and family. What started as a hobby quickly became a passion I couldn’t shake. So, when I found myself less than thrilled at my job as a project manager, I made the decision to turn my love for photography into a career.

I  shoot on film as well as digital—and my work has been featured in publications ranging from Martha Stewart Weddings and Style Me Pretty to The Knot and the cover of Inside Weddings. I’ve also been named the Best Photographer by California Wedding Day three years in a row. 

When I’m not behind my camera or connecting with (and styling!) couples, you can find me sculpting and sweating at a barre class, treating myself to a manicure, online shopping at Nordstrom, or spending time with my husband and our two incredible daughters. A lover of outdoor adventures and a serious Francophile, I spend much of my spare time dreaming about living in Paris where I eat croissants at a sidewalk cafe and say things like c’est délicieux!

Atlanta Braves World Series Winner Hits His Wedding Out Of The Park

Atlanta Braves baseball pitcher, Will Smith, pitched the final ball of the evening for the World Series win. For his wedding day, Will and his bride Taylor also hit it out of the park. Filled with fall tones and fabulous floral installations designed by Kelly Lenard, the entire day was nothing short of spectacular. Browne & Towers helped plan a day filled with meaningful moments like incorporating the couples’ love of baseball into the design. The talented Shauna Veasey Photography was there to capture all of the love in her artful imagery, see it all in the full gallery.




From Browne & TowersThe groom, Will Smith, is a pitcher for the Atlanta Braves and you’ll notice unique baseball details throughout the wedding day as a nod to the couple’s love for the sport. Instead of a traditional guest book, friends left their autographs on baseballs which were planned to be repurposed into a creative art piece for the couple.



Taylor, the bride, wanted to fully embrace the Fall season. We achieved that by offering guests warm apple cider upon arrival at the venue along with cozy fire pits during cocktail hour. The florist, Kelly Lenard, played with unique Fall tones throughout the spectacular floral installations.



The bride and groom’s favorite meal of the day is breakfast, so we made sure to include some breakfast-inspired hors d’oeuvres such as mini chicken and waffle bites. It was a magical day filled with lots of meaningful details!

The abridged version of the goals of our curated planning guides 

We (i.e. Abby and all the editors at SMP + our amazing network of vendors, wedding talent, and celebration tastemakers #SMPLittleBlackBook) wanted to design the most go-to resources for readers who are new to the ‘I do’ world and thirsty for all the knowledge and inspiration it takes to plan a trip down the aisle. Consider our Ultimate Wedding Guides the perfect planning companions — here to provide your faves with support and guidance as they navigate the unique and complicated, yet incredibly-beautiful season of planning their weddings.

And here’s why they shine as last-minute gifts for your favorite girl

🥂 No shopping or shipping required. As soon as you scope out the guide or guides that you know she’ll love, click “Add to Cart” or “Buy It Now” and pay, and you’ll have the downloadable PDF ready for her within minutes. This is major for you, because holiday shopping at the eleventh hour is never fun, nor are the postponed shipping notifications… Who else has “We’re sorry, but your package will be delayed…” texts coming in on the daily? Ugh! 

🥂 Digital means that the details, tips, design advice, and real wedding inspo are easily accessible. While you can absolutely purchase and have the guides printed as a physical gift for your bestie bride-to-be, you don’t have to. In fact, going back to that earlier point about not putting any pressure on the happy couple in the beginning (and letting them celebrate and embrace fiancé-hood first, before the planning starts), going in hot with all the planning books and magazines, vendor reccos, and how-tos can be overwhelming. But sending your girl a digital planning guide that she can discreetly read on her phone, tablet, or laptop (while she’s at work or WFH), gives her something to jump into and square away any preliminary planning curiosities — traditional wedding or microwedding, for starters?

🥂 Great follow ups to all of her recent double taps on the Gram. If one of your VIPs in life just said ‘YES’ to vows to come, then you’ve probably witnessed her starting to follow all of the VIPs in the wedding world. Depending on what she’s been loving on social, lately, you can gift her with a guide that either inspires or provides answers to some of her biggest questions. Going with our venue guide can say “Hey! I know you’ve been going back and forth about whether to do a modern ballroom or a boho barn wedding, BOTH are great, but feel free to take a peek at all your options!! Alternatively, if you know she’s going dress shopping soon (like in the next week or two or over the Christmas/NYE holiday), you can gift her with a style guide that provides a total wedding fashion FYI.

Shop our Ultimate Wedding Guide Shop right now for the pretty and practical gifts (individually or bundled!) your soon-to-be bride will absolutely adore. Each and all of our guides would also pair nicely with a note that says “Your planner is on the way, too!” Not necessary, of course, but certainly an extra special something-something, especially if you’ve accepted the role of Maid or Matron of Honor…

Modern And Chic Scottsdale Wedding Full Of Fun

This formal affair is all about effortless, elegant style. Some Like It Classic planned the picture-perfect wedding day in Arizona, filled with exquisite details like a custom seating chart adorned with pampas grass and velvet dressed reception tables. Organic floral arrangements by Carte Blanche Design added a classy, bohemian touch that carried throughout the design. Every magical moment was artfully captured in the imagery by Elyse Hall Photography, visit the full gallery for a closer look.




From Elyse Hall PhotographyAs the pandemic hit many industries hard, receiving product orders had lasting effects on the wedding industry. For Brianna and Austin, it was their stationary. With invitations stuck in Australia and little hope of arriving on time to send to guests, the groom decided it was time to pivot. A graphic designer by trade, Austin took it upon himself to design new invitations for their big day. The result was anything but second best.



In the forefront of the iconic Camelback Mountain, Brianna and Austin said their vows in a heartwarming, religious ceremony surrounded by their wedding party dressed in timeless neutrals. A custom statement seating chart display created by The Details Duo adorned with pampas, welcomed guests from cocktail hour to dinner where velvet dressed tables awaited.



Lounge furniture gave a functional design element that filled the space with a minimalist look. With every detail thoughtfully chosen, this postponement was a day worth waiting for.

A Dreamy Destination Wedding on a Cliff Front in Bali Adorned in an Array of Pinks!

Dreamy yet sophisticated, with pops of pinks is the perfect way to describe this destination wedding, which casually takes place on a cliff front in Bali at Hedonism Villa which offers a jaw-dropping backdrop. With hues of pinks from the florals to the bright bridesmaid dresses and acrylic details from ceremony to reception, the day felt like a dream, planned by Tirtha Bali with decor and styling by Hanamizuki by Tirtha!…. What made the day even more special, the bride’s sister an up and coming couturier, Stella Lunardy, designed her wedding insanely gorgeous wedding gown! Now, take a peek below at all of the magic that Gusmank Wedding Photography captured!

From Sachi Kondo…When Steffi said yes to Ari, she didn’t picture a sentimental affair exclusively shared with her nearest and dearest. All she knew was that her heart longed for a tropical escape. Having trimmed their guest list from hundreds to a handful, the couple’s stunning cliff-front nuptials were simple and understated but close
to perfection.

Tirtha Bali planned an intimate celebration for couple Steffi and Ari that exceeded their expectations, from the welcome picnic party, livened up by fresh tapas, to the intimate ceremony adorned with pops of fuchsia, designed by the talented decoration team from Hanamizuki by Tirtha. As a fashion-savvy doctor, the wedding designers wanted to capture the beautiful contrasts of Steffi’s personality. Delicate yet bold, dreamy yet sophisticated, cute yet elegant. Steffi had one request for her wedding theme— pink. Away from the fairytale princess kind, she sought something more bold and exciting. The Hanamizuki team put together a color palette just the way the bride had in mind: a feminine play on blush pink and dusty rose; ecru for a touch of modernity; and fuchsia to make a stunning statement.

The ceremony was set on the lush lawn of Hedonism Villa, a venue that marries local beauty with an ethereal Mediterranean feel. Upon entering, sloping down towards the emerald green infinity pool, your eyes are met with an acrylic gate embellished with roses, anthurium, lisianthus and bougainvillea in the exact shades of the color palette.

For her special day, Steffi wore a delicately pleated ivory gown made by her sister Stella Lunardy, an up-and-coming couturier. The gown cascades so effortlessly and elegantly on her frame while her bridesmaid donned identical pleated dresses in fuschia, adding a more vibrant hue under Bali’s crystal clear sky.

The dinner arrangement perched on the deck by the cliff overlooking the ocean was wonderfully dreamlike. With crystal chandelier glittering over from heaven. Everything appeared surreal.

The couple thanked Tirtha for the seamless experience, from initial thoughts to the d-day everything was materialized even from hundreds of miles away. “I thought planning a destination wedding from Jakarta would be complicated or time-consuming. But Tirtha made long-distance planning a breeze.” Steffi said. “Every little detail was covered. I was amazed. I didn’t have to dedicate a lot of time or energy. The team took care of everything.”

Steffi and Ari lived their dream destination wedding in Bali. Oftentimes, she still plays back the scene in her head, exchanging vows at a dream venue like Hedonism Villa. “With the beautiful ocean as the backdrop, watching the sky turn from orange to a hundred shades of pink to a dark navy blue. This kind of amazing moment gives me goosebumps every time I think about it,” the bride reminisced.

Mediterranean Charm Meets Undeniable Elegance At This Villa Wedding in Ravello

This Amalfi Coast wedding dazzles with a mix of Mediterranean charm and undeniable elegance. Our couple turned to noneother than Amalfi Soirée to plan a day filled with carefully curated details that leave a lasting impression. Hand-painted limoncello bottles from Antichi Sapori di Amalfi serve as wedding favors, and the long reception table overflowing with roses and delphiniums designed by Kuts Flowers is nothing short of breathtaking. Sergio Sorrentino captured the joyful moments in timeless images that will undoubtedly become lovely family heirlooms, you can see it all in the full gallery.



From Sergio SorrentinoThe bride, in addition to being a popular fitness influencer, is an experienced and caring nurse who fought the battle against Covid-19 from the front line. I had the opportunity to know Alanna in a deep way, and to appreciate all her beautiful qualities. What I’ve appreciated the most is certainly her resilience and her indestructible optimism. Even when the pandemic kept her separated from Reid for 7 months, preventing her from joining him in Europe, she never lost her kindness.



The wedding ceremony and reception were held at Villa Eva, a refined private villa overlooking the sea. At the opening of the gates of the wedding venue, musicians led a small group to the surprise wedding location. Everyone was amazed to discover the wide gardens full of flowers and the jaw-dropping panoramic view.



After the dinner, which took place in an atmosphere of great complicity and intimacy, the guests went wild on the dance floor under the stars. Guests said it was the best wedding they have ever been to.
