A Palette of Pinks

The design featured a palette of pink tones that offered the perfect fusion with the surrounding gardens of the Villa while providing a sense of romance and sophistication. From the invitations to the floral arrangements and fashion, shades of pink were seamlessly integrated into every element of the wedding. The balance of soft and vibrant tones created a harmonious and visually stunning effect.

Two Wedding Looks

Our bride wore a fairytale Monique Lhuillier gown for the wedding ceremony, which she swapped for a chic, but no less elegant, lace Berta dress, both from White House Bride. After the ceremony, local hair and makeup team Studio Como pulled her hair back into a sleek pony with subtle waves.
