Giada + Davide: a magical wedding

Giada was one of the first readers of my blog. We connected right away, sharing a similar aesthetic sense and our origins in Friuli Venezia Giulia. I knew her wedding to Davide would have been special, I have seen their plans evolve and take shape.. and what a shape, the result is fantastic and so are the pictures of their wedding day!

Giada: “Until the end of 2008 I would have never thought I would have gotten married, then the love of my life proposed and I began dreaming. I was thinking of the venue, the dress and everything else… but I wanted something different from the traditional Italian way. I bought some wedding magazines and began to despair, until I found Laura’s blog where she told the story of how her wedding was different. A new world I didn’t know opened before my eyes. I found what I was looking for! I sent her an email and she answered after some days.. well she was in labour… From there we eschanged so many ideas and inspiration, Laura became a friend and a trusted opinion. When the time to really plan began, the ideas were really too many and Laura helped me finding an order to them through her creative guidelines. It all became much easier.

With a lot of effort and enthusiasm from me and Davide and the help of our dear ones we have shaped a wedding how we wanted it. We thank our families and friends… and each other. To the couples planning their wedding: enjoy every moment, bask in the affection you’ll receive from your loved ones, and dance! We wanted to make it a fun party for our guests and their happiness repaid us back for all of our work.

Here is the inspiration board I prepared for them and then I’ll show you how these two and their vendors made it all reality. Three keywords for this wedding: bohemienne, indie and vintage. And two underthemes: cookies and flags. And tender pastel colors. Here it is:
