A Sweet, Rustic, Vintage Wedding

We wanted simple and elegant with the focus on florals and greenery, not specific colors. We had all white linens with pops of color from the greenery and flowers. The location gave everything a vintage feel as well which we loved.

We designed our own wedding invitations with the help of some close friends, and we painted all of our own signs for the wedding with the help of some close friends.

Loosing Your Cool

Joe’s Favorite Memory: We didn’t choose to do a first look so the moment I saw Ashley turn the corner to start heading down the aisle I totally lost it. I woke up that morning thinking I had everything together and that I wouldn’t cry but, that wasn’t the case. She looked so beautiful and in that moment, thinking about spending the rest of my life with Ash, I couldn’t hold back my emotion. That was my favorite memory.

A Sweet Ceremony Idea

Ashley’s Favorite Memory: I had so many great memories from the night but, I loved when Joe read me the promises he wrote to me. We chose to write each other promises before we read the traditional vows. Hearing the beautiful words he wrote me brought me to tears. His words were so close to my heart and meant so much to me. I will never forget that moment.

Music To Our Ears

We really loved choosing our music together for our wedding! We would listen to all of our favorite songs in the car and just jam out. Whichever ones gave us the goosebumps while we were imagining them playing were the ones we chose.
Processional: Heavens Knife by Josh Garrels

Recessional: You Are The Best Thing by Ray LaMontagne

First Dance: At Last by Etta James

We are right there with you Ashley and Joey! Picking out the right music is one of our favorite parts of planning! But if you feel like you have hit a wall and need a little inspiration we have lists of some of our favorite wedding songs for the ceremony and the reception! Whether you need help with the ceremony music, father/daughter dance, mother/son dance or you just need some great tunes for the reception we have got you covered!

How To Get Engaged In Rome

Romantic Rome Engagement

There are no words to describe how totally smitten we are over this engagement shoot by Kairos Events and Wedding Scenario. Inspired by Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck’s enchanting vespa ride through the bustling streets of Rome in the beloved classic, Roman Holiday.

Among all the sweet moments captured by Roberto Candido, we cannot get enough of the vintage mint vespa from Nozze Auto d’Epoca and the oh-so-adorable floral wreath from Flor Eventi! This visual extravaganza is meant to be relished, so keep scrolling for more! Oh and be sure to visit the full gallery, where you can see the full day in its entirety.

Enchanting city

From Wedding ScenarioWho doesn’t love the atmosphere of the Rome of the ‘50s, the Rome Gregory Peck and Audrey Hepburn explored on board a Vespa, her enchanted look while admiring every corner and the city, knowing she is experiencing a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity? Well, in the marriage proposal shooting with Chiara and Eddie we wanted to bring back to life those emotions, wandering through the streets and stopping in the most enchanting locations of the city to the lesser known but equally fascinating spots. After all, a marriage proposal deserves some privacy, doesn’t it?

Fashionable style

Full circle red skirt and white top for Chiara, who completely identified with the timeless and fashionable style of the ‘50s, which was adapted to our modern taste thanks to the details added by Marco Fava and Mila Gaudenzi, who designed her look. For the groom-to-be a flawless suit, symbol of Italian elegance, that granted him Gregory Peck’s seductive charm.

Vintage vespa

One essential element in order to live fully the atmospheres of the movie “Roman Holiday” was the unforgettable Vespa, made available by Nozze Auto d’Epoca. It was the exact same model used in the movie, although in a very light pastel green that perfectly matched the floral decoration realized by Flor Eventi.

Home-made decor

One more evidence of the beauty of the made in Italy are the home-made decorations by Impronte Events Design, made of wood and natural fabrics. I really wouldn’t know what detail is more charming, if the heart-shaped wooden ring box or the banner announcing the wedding date!
