A Colorful Destination Wedding on the Italian Riviera

Cinzia and Danilo were married on 20th April 2013 in Santa Margherita Ligure and Zoagli.  Their colorful fete on the Italian Riviera was shared with close friends, family, and the most darling flower girl (the daughter of the bride and groom)!

The couple shared with us their story.  Each decision they made was one of personal significance!  “We chose the Church because it was where we met and were he proposed.”

“In the Church balustrades and altar were covered by cascades of orange tulips seeming waves.”

“We want a personal ceremony so we chose to involve the most important people of our lives in ceremony and reception: my brother spoke in the church; our little baby brought our rings; my father had a speech at reception; everybody danced at our entrance to the table…so emotions (laughters and happy tears) where the theme of the day.”

“On the style side, we wanted colours to be the key of the style: so main colour theme was orange and deep fuchsia; we asked everybody to be dressed very brightly so all the pictures are a burst of colours.”

“At the reception venue table tops were made of mirrors, fuchsia napkins with orange details on the tables, centerpiece were made by orange and fuchsia flowers.”

“Each guest had as gift an ever-lasting-rose (fuchsia or orange) meaning the ever-lasting-memory of the day.”

We often ask couples what their most memorable moments from the day were.  For this bride – there were many!  “My father reading the napkin I gave him as a present for his wedding suit; my husband looking at me while entering the church; our baby bringing our rings at the right moment in the church; my brother talking to us in the church; the exit from church my husband holding me, me holding our baby; most amazing moment of the day: entering the dinner area with the rock song “I was made for loving you” everybody dancing on the chairs with us with their table song; fireworks during cake cut.”
