Wedding in Castello di Vincigliata
I have been blessed many times during my career with the chance to organize weddings in probably the most famous venue in Florence, Castello di Vincigliata and among all those times, Lauren & Daniel’s wedding has been hands down one of the most romantic and exclusive weddings I have been honored to work on.
The Castle is for sure one of the most elegant, unique and breathtaking venues all around Florence and it’s surprisingly flexible and suitable for many different types of events, so I don’t have to add how easy it has been to create a sophisticated mood with blush pinks and light dusty pinks, colors that Lauren (and myself) adores.
The day was an incredibly sunny and not so hot day of late June and we expected to have a bit of rain but ended up being so incredibly lucky on having a stunning day instead, fresh and slightly windy, just what we needed in a summer day.
The preparation has been done in one of my Partner Hotel where the atmosphere is classy and modern at the same time creating that luxurious feeling of pampering and cuddles that only selected hotels have and that the couple wanted for their special day.
The ceremony, a legal civil one held with the authorization of the City Hall of Fiesole, has been held on the main panoramic terrace of Castello di Vincigliata, where a stunning packed flowered romantic arch was waiting for the bride and her lovely bridesmaids entering with the gentle music from a harp. After a very intense ceremony, a rich traditional Italian buffet of aperitifs and antipasti has opened in the garden of the Castle where guests have been entertained by a swingy jazz group.
The stunning dinner U shape table has been set up in the outstanding Court inside Vincigliata Castle, where goldish tablecloths and white plus blush pink flowers created a statement flower arrangement. Every single detail has been carefully studied with the precious help of the bride, from the gold handmade name tags for every guest, to the mini bottles of Limoncello that have been presented as a gift along with some tasty Cantucci biscotti with chocolate chips.
The general look of the Court has been enhanced by many Led uplifter lights in the warm and deep gold color to give a glow and wow factor when the night has fallen on us The after dinner has been held inside the amazing Loggia just beside the Court where the Dj and his incredible lights and sound equipment has thrown the best party ever possible.
Mood of this wedding has been elegance, class and a sense of serenity that I’ll never forget.
