Real Weddings: Sharlene & Craigs Breathtaking Florence Wedding

Buongiorno bellas! I am delighted to share this gorgeous couple's breathtaking Florence, Italy wedding! Oh my goodness, get ready to pin these images to your "wedding goals" Pinterest boards! My newfound lovely friend June at Adorn Invitations sent over the wedding, which was beautifully photographed by Facibeni Fotografia.

June shared with me a little background on this couple and how their day came to be:

An elegant and enchanting destination wedding was brought to life when fate had it that Sharlene and Craig met during their studies in 2004. At the sweet age of 19, she fell head over heels in love with his beautiful kind heart. 8 years later, when travelling through Europe, the couple spent a beautiful evening in Florence taking in the breathtaking view from the Santa Trinita Bridge.

As Sharlene began to tell the man soon to be her fiancé that her favourite part of the day was sunset because she loves watching the colours of the sky change, he dropped to one knee, expressed his love and asked if she wanted to one day return to Florence as husband and wife. 2 years later, they returned to this stunning city for their magical wedding.

The bride was dressed in a silky lace gown by Steven Khalil, knowing it had to be hers as soon as she tried it on. She complimented this with pure white Yves Saint Laurent’s and pearl earrings by Dior. The couple envisioned a wedding that was the epitome of simplicity and elegance – something classic and timeless. As soon as their eyes set on Villa La Vedetta, they knew it was where they were meant to wed as it gifted them a spectacular view of the city.

Sit back, and be swept away to Florence for Sharlene & Craig's Breathtaking Florence Wedding, captured by Facibeni Fotografia:
