Boho chic elopement in the Italian Riviera
In may 2021 we had the pleasure of teaming up with the fabulous ‘With Love Weddings’ by Valentina Massari for what we believe to be one of the best styled shootings of the year.
Valentina chose to bring her top list of Italian wedding suppliers to one of the most breathtaking locations of the Italian Riviera, sea front wonder Eco del Mare in Lerici. Set between the Ligurian mountains and the sea, this fascinating location offers all the comforts of a luxury boutique hotel and at the same time keeps the wilderness of the Mediterranean nature alive. The location itself is perfectly conceived to blend in the magnificent natural colours of the rocks surrounding it, a beautiful example of modern design that takes inspiration from mother nature.
In this ideal elopement, you can truly enjoy the privacy and the silence of this unbelievable natural setting. Preparing for your special day can be a relaxing experience in Valentina’s capable hands.
A TREAT MADE IN ITALY
Every detailed is captured by fantastic storyteller Carolina Serafini, one of the best Italian photographers in the international wedding industry.
Valentina shows how personalized and creative your dream wedding can be by adding hand embroidery made by ‘Pun.to’ on the couple’s outfits, originally designed wedding jewellery by ‘My Golden Age’ and the beautifully coordinated stationaries and menus by ‘Papries’: all hand made with love in Italy.
The couples’ look was curated by another group of Italian talents: makeup and hairstyles by Rosario from Merci A Vous, a delicate and sophisticated bridal dress by Annagemma Lascari and Lubian‘s beautiful white suit for the groom.
A BOHO CHIC DREAM
The ceremony is the most important part of the day and we were honoured to accompany the voice of the sea with our music. Coordinating with Jessica Tua‘s brilliant flower design, we conceived a custom acoustic ensemble in order to transform this magical setting and views into music.
A beautiful and delicate violinist accompanied by an acoustic guitar and drums is the perfect soundtrack for this cool boho chic celebration. Together, they cover the most romantic contemporary pop songs that speak to everybody’s heart, like the passionate sound of the waves crashing into the surrounding rocks. And frankly… They look fantastic!
The reception mise en place was curated in every detail by JD Events: a sensational sea-view picnic table with soft pillows, candle light and carpets, all in the color palette of the sea and the sand. The beautiful wedding cake by Altroché Dolci is the perfect finale to a flawless celebration.
For the reception we brought in our Acoustic Jazz Trio, with female vocals, guitar and double bass. The gold dress of the lead singer was chosen to express the warmth of the sand and her warm vocal tones did the rest. This band is perfect to continue a romantic day with jazz and pop sounds in perfect balance between refined elegance and easy chic shades.
BABY WE ARE FIREWORK!
For the after dinner we teamed up with our fantastic partner Audiodress and gave life to our Vinyl DJ, Sax and Drums Trio to celebrate young love with up beat music.
Audiodress’s team can also create a warm an colorful atmosphere with their moving heads systems, uplight led spots
and smoke machine. A real dance floor comes to life to create unforgettable moments.
Figure yourself out dancing with your closest friends and relatives under the light of the moon with your favorite music and a live saxophonist and drummer and at the end enjoying Magia Di Luci‘s (literally “magic of lights”, just a perfect name”) fireworks … Is there something sweeter than this?
