Elopment Bohemian in the Dolomites

 

Today we are on Green wedding shoes

The Dolomites! Such an unusual destination for a wedding, but a perfect location for our elopement: suggestive and emotional!

The challenge was to design a bohemian setting among these extraordinary landscapes, trying to give a sense of spontaneity to every single detail that we created.

On the fabulous shores of Lake Braies, we chose for the ceremony a beautiful Mandala carpet that represented centrality and dedication.

From a palette of colors: white, orange, petrol green, magenta and ochre, in continuity with those of the place, collaborating with the flower designer, the bouquet (made out of different flowers both fresh and dried) and floral arrangements were studied with results of stability and integration within the unique scenery of the Dolomites.

An exclusive white faux leather headband with long and soft fringes, which we have personally designed and created for this elopement, it substituted the classic silk ribbon to close the bouquet.

 

Surreal details are not missing though linked to these places: the presence of Alpacas. The intimate dinner at Maso Eden. The use of small and researched Mandala drawings as tablecloths. Hand carved wooden bowls. A candle holder bear shaped: propitiatory presence that reminds of sightings and narratives.

Which wedding dress would have respected the charming location of this elopement?  We found one: sensual, romantic, soft, precious.

Hair style, make- up, accessories and jewelery: they were all chosen to be in affinity and emancipation with style and the destination, just to get the bohemian spirit in the atmosphere.

What do you think about it?

We’ve come back with this strong feeling of going on to want to be different, chasing ourselves and especially  our creativity. Without compromise. With our spouses. Their destinations and their determination to the realization of the wedding of their dreams.

The photos of this elopement, better than words, are witnesses to the enchanted and surreal atmosphere that we hope that we were able to create. Have we succeeded?

We thank so much the team of collaborators, whom with great professionalism have hallowed this pure magic!

Charged with this experience, we are again leaving for another wedding.

We will tell you soon about it!

Engagement in Varenna

Simona and William: the participants of this new experience with whom, also with our super team, we went to Varenna trying to organize in all the single details a “retro proposal” directed during the day that the couple spent together. If you are wondering how their fairytale day went, you are on the right page!

Leaving in the dark of all his companion, William left her a message, sewn over a piece of cloth, with written: “See You in Varenna”; Simona then took the ferry to get to her destination, where she met with William. Wearing a beautiful pastel-colored flower hat, in pandan with her pink dress and the belt entirely made of flowers but also with William’s shirt, the two lovers have walked the streets of the small town on the lake while  sharing strong emotions of all kinds.

Between smiles, gazes of understanding and love, Simona and William then headed to a bridge where William put himself at the opera dedicating a serenade played with the trumpetand, walking hand in the hand, they had a picnic on the river of the lake: dream’s moments for both.

But for Simona the surprises were not over, how could such a day ended like that? The magic ended with William’s proposal on a bridge that isolated the couple from the rest of the frenzy of the world and, of course, we did not get away any time! We immortalized every moment that Simona and William shared in that wonderful day.

This retro-style proposal has fascinated us a lot, the beauty of the Lake of Como never ceases to amaze, we look forward to discover which new and innovative ideas the futurereserves us! Stay connected and follow us, both on our blog and Instagram

Inspiration Bohemian

Because we always like to be innovative, we decided to realize the idea for a new type of wedding: completely immersed in nature, in bohemian style.

We are in fact ready to leave for the Dolomites with a super creative team, to organize an Elopement, that is an intimate wedding, with 20 guests in total; people will not only be amazed by the breathtaking scenery, but also by the details that we will realize and take care in every single detail, from the dress of the bride, to the flowers, or the ceremony.

 

Couples who chooses to have an elopement, are the ones who would love a wedding a little more intimate, but without losing care, design and elegance.

For Hannah, we decided to choose a wedding dresses’ brand very alternative, dresses for brides with free souls, linked to the expression of their emotions and extremely in contact with nature.

In fact, we have taken inspiration from this type of clothing so we could have been able to develop original details in view of this Elopment which we like particularly.

 

You will be wondering why we are so enthusiastic about this Elopement in bohemian style… Simply because, trying to give a small answer, behind the word Bohème lies a profound meaning of freedom, and detachment from the materialism of life.

In such a modern society, where we are always running and  is asking us to be always perfect, who would not want to take refuge in nature’s heart, get out of the usual patterns and get in total freedom?

We care about this not only because we love working with couples who propose, accept and are enthusiastic about new projects and ideas, but also because it allows us to be able to move, travel, and discover new places, in fact we look forward to 2018 we are waiting for new destinations in Italy.

Wedding in Matera

wedding matera

 

To make big steps  we must not only act, but also dream. Not only plan, but also believe. (A. France)

 

Today we are on Green Wedding shoes and we are full of happiness!

 

We want to tell you all about it!!

 

I wanted to believe, and I believed firmly to the point of seeing everything shining around and inside me. I knew that Matera, the European Capital of Culture 2019, would be an unusual destination. Yes, just so extraordinary and magical but, let me, I never thought I would feel like a bottle of sparkling water that is going to be open after being agitated for a while!

Here I am again at home, in my little nest on the Lake of Como, I sit down and I have a drink  while observing all those sparkling bubbles in my glass, I cannot help myself  on retrace the fantastic experience recently lived together with a fantastic team.

I think back to that singular sky that seemed to have argued with who knows what divine essence that only Matera has been able to give me.

Then to the surrounding Murge and those ‘ infinite ‘ stones overloaded with history, it would be more correct to say pre-history, which brought me back to mind that beautiful Mel Gibson who right here set “The Passion of Christ”.

Certain! He also had to give himself a great deal to have shot the entire film in Latin and, I am sure, after that he probably had some bubbles too!

Here in Matera, I really felt my fearless heart! I let out all the passion I had for all the little details. I wanted to play with clay turning it into participations, in plates with the names of the guests carved in and the menus that you see on the table.

And everything was hand painted!

I stole the blue of that sky and I transformed it, together with my super creative team, in thousand different shades giving color to linen fabrics (that you see on the table too).

In front of that wild and untamed nature, furthermore, I could not give up the flowers and branches of Murges plants, putting them in contrast with the bright colors of European flowers. Yes, I just wanted that people could notice that intense nature that left me open-mouthed.

A set of colors and scents were inserted in small antique amphorae, (oh yes, the place claimed them) the same that, in bigger version, were used for the wedding ceremony.

Now, throw an eye on the bride and her boudoir.

Close your eyes and try to imagine the magnificent feeling that you can try in preparing the bread, wearing that mise; a bread that encloses a long tradition and which requires the drawing of a symbol, the rooster, through a stamp that for the occasion was made by a local artisan.

Only on special days, where everything is possible, you can experience extraordinary moments like these.

So, are you ready to retrace this journey of pure and real amazement with us? Do you like this new wedding destination that we discovered?
