Buongiorno! We are excited to share with you beautiful readers this gorgeous wedding, shot at a villa in Italy, by Andrea Weddings! This marks the first European wedding for us to share on the blog, and we are so grateful!
Andrea, the photographer, shared a little note to include with this gorgeous outdoor Italian wedding:Last spring, I had the chance to photograph a wedding in the rolling hills of the Piedemonte wine country, in Northern Italy. I knew it would be magical, so I hopped on a plane from London and flew to a little piece of paradise. The entire day, from ceremony to reception to dinner to after party, was held on the grounds of Albergo L'Ostelliere, in Gavi, about an hour and a half outside of Milan. This gorgeous property features a vineyard, hotel, restaurant, and beautiful grounds perfect for meandering through its own as well as nearby vineyards. The wedding itself was as luxurious as it was down to earth. Music flowed throughout the day; a string quartet welcomed guests before the ceremony, and a band played for the party, all friends of the bride and groom (not to mention the groom himself on the drums). Between the outdoor ceremony and the sunset reception, the guests, followed by the bride and groom alone, walked through an entirely candle lit wine cellar humming with Italian classical music. Could you get any more romantic than that? And wondering about the bride's dress? It was handmade by her mother, as was her matching shrug. In fact, her mother was trimming the dress just minutes before the ceremony! It was a truly lovely day for all who attended, including me.
Behold the work of Andrea Weddings and this romantic Italian vineyard wedding:
What a dreamy wedding! I love the gorgeous scenery and the wine cave! Not to leave out the gorgeous color palette the bride chose, those shades of purple and green are really stunning. The handmade touches, such as the bride's gown, and other details are really sweet and romantic. Congrats to the happy couple!
Many thanks to Andrea Weddings for submitting to the blog your gorgeous photography!
