On vacation in Italy, the bride fell in love with the Mediterranean coastline and wanted to recreate that experience for her wedding guests. For the ceremony, the aisle of the stone church was flanked by 8ft candelabras heavily draped with vines reminiscent of bougainvillea climbing the Mediterranean cliffs. The reception venue selected was a French-mediterranean restaurant with stone floor, a waterfront terrace, and a sophisticated, neutral palette that helped bring to life the bride’s vision. Hundreds of candles lit the room with warm, natural light, the french doors to the terrance were kept open, and table sizes were deliberately varied all to keep ambience of an open-air restaurant. The centerpieces featured stone urns with natural, cascading floral arrangements of magentas, greens, and whites accented with grapes, figs, and artichokes for texture and reference. Table numbers were calligraphed on empty wine bottles and each guest was given a beautiful, hand-painted wine stopper flown in directly from Italy.
