This week we head to beautiful Italy for Letizia and Matteo’s romantic and happy wedding day. There was a casual and relaxed country feel to their day with a fresh pink and green colour scheme. I especially love the florals and the stylish attire.
Thanks goes to the wonderful Avoriophoto for sharing their images with us today.
FROM THE BRIDE |
“Our love story began at the elementary school and I remember we were already engaged… we could say we were predestined!! We got separated during middle school but we met again during high school and we stayed together for almost 3 years. When I was twenty, Matteo decided to leave me. We both got different experiences and love stories, but Bologna is such a small city and it is easy to meet old friends. Six years later, we were together again and we have never left anymore.
Our feelings were more and more mature and strong and we decided to live together. Matteo made his proposal in the most natural way he could: one evening he prepared our dinner and patiently waited for my coming back home. The atmosphere was magical, some music, champagne… he went down on his knees and asked me to marry him.
Matteo and I, we both agreed about the most important thing of our wedding day: the deep meaning of saying “I do” in the house of God and of sharing our joy with our families and friends. We thought about the wedding set-up only after choosing the reception venue: we were looking for an outdoor location because we invited many guests and we wanted to let them feel free to delight the beautiful lawn of “La Gaiana”.
The Country-chic theme was such a natural choice for us: I do believe it was very representative of an informal, warm and polished idea of our personalities and of course of our wedding. After ceremony, the party began and our friends are absolutely the best! They showered us with love, hugs, kisses and organized many funny jokes that made us laugh very hard and sometimes weep tears of joy. But Matteo and I, we organized a surprise for them: during our first dance as husband and wife, we showed our own choreography on a famous music compilation… it was such an amazing moment for us and our guests!!!
I’ll always remember the excitement during my preparation and before seeing Matteo in the church and I’ll never forget the moment we said “I do” looking at each other.”
