Modern Luxury Venice Wedding Ideas

Inspiration is not about reproducing or mimicking something, but interpreting elements that speak to a personality, fully reflecting the individual. With this top of mind, this fabulous team of vendors drew inspiration from Venice's intricate architectural lines, rich colors of buildings and canals, and the traditional gondoliers' stripes. Appealing to today's modern brides and grooms. The romantic meets modern theme, gives two bridal looks, each high on fashion with dresses by Couture Hayez Atelier, accessories by Kelly Spence and Freya Rose, and the help of hair and makeup artists Susy Zancaro and Roberta Galesso. A soft, romantic look for the ceremony & reception, contrasted by a much more modern and sassy look for the couple's intimate portrait session in Venice were created. Stationery played a huge part in bringing this look to life. Eighth & Autumn gave a linear version of the traditional intricate architectural lines of Venice incorporating the gondoliere's stripes. This element was then enriched by striped gold and white ribbons used to wrap the menus. Table to Dine For added that little touch of modernity to the intimate reception table by providing striped grey and white table runners and napkins. The subtle grey is key to ensuring this striped look doesn't visually clutter the aesthetic of the table - a key concept for a less-is-more couple and something that is carried through simple, modern touches like ghost chairs and the "skeleton" bar structure provided by Your Event Venice .

The JW Marriott Resort & Spa, on its own private island ("Isola delle Rose"), is the go-to place for discerning travelers, but also offers the kind of spaces that beautifully matched the vision for this intimate wedding inspiration. A secluded garden with views of the lagoon for the intimate ceremony, a rooftop pool looking out to San Marco Square for a cocktail and cutting-of-the-cake moment, and the most breathtaking reception space in the form of a converted church. The white and green flowers and trailing foliage on the reception table are key to soften what could otherwise be quite a sharp theme. Trailing foliage and white blooms gave such a momentous occasion the luminous spotlight it deserved. Florist Federico of Centro Fiori, injected color into the bouquet by adding to the white and green palette some beautiful bright pink peonies. The ceremony altar is also another favorite, trailing foliage remains one of the key elements of 2017 wedding styling, without going too "organic." No modern luxury wedding ideas are complete without the experience of a water limo journey into San Marco Square, provided by Blitz Exclusive. For a stylish couple choosing Venice for their wedding, you simply cannot miss the opportunity of 'strolling' through the canals with the only luxury water limo available in Venice!
