Three of our favorite words: Luxury Italian Wedding. Above anything else traveling inspires us most of all. To see luxury weddings across the world means that love is reigning supreme. Add a dose of luxury, beautiful scenery of Italy's landscape, a gorgeous white dog and well - you have automatically captured our attention. This is exactly what Italian photographers Ludovica Lanzafami and Valerio Elia did today with this stunning rendition of a luxury Italian wedding styled shoot which blends new nuptial concepts with traditional formality. To capture Italy's stunning essence, they gathered some of the most experienced vendors in Northern Italy for a wild and romantic day at the Villa Bria, an ancient Neoclassical villa located in Piedmont. Another favorite of ours - they added one spectacular pooch trained by Davide of Itaca Addestramento, who specializes in training dog's how to move with their couple during a ceremony, bring the rings into the ceremony and above all else stay close to the bride and groom. Pet lovers unite!
The shoot was set at sunset in the Villa's garden with beauty exuding from each image portraying warmth and romance. Simmi Event and Floral Design illuminated the room with symbolism through flowers using roses, ivy, statice, rice flowers and berries. Roses to embody love, ivy standing for marital loyalty, statice representing the union, and rice flowers and berries for bountiful and good luck. With a palette of ivy green, gold, peach and light cyclamen white for an opulent feel. The precious brooch used to bound the bouquet was her grandmother's and a detail many brides are incorporating today. More than 200 candles illuminated the gallery to recreate a breathtaking atmosphere and draw upon the natural sunset's glow while the head table was the focal point with an 18th century vibe. Of course the sweet table created by Daturi e Motta has us drooling over its sugary confections and stunning white cake. With a classically styled bride and groom, this beautiful day is hard to believe it was styled and not a true dream day.
