Valentina + Luigi

Getting married in Rome is many people’s dream. Planning a wedding in Rome is many wedding planner’s dream, including me. Well, I made my dream come true, do you want to see?
A sweet and kind couple, that loves reading and beauty: I felt like I won the lottery when they hired me. I also liked the idea of a fall wedding, too bad that Rome in October is still so hot and the landscape so green… maybe next year?

Books and honey are the main themes used throughout the wedding and a muted color palette with pops of a deep cheery red where the design foundations. Valentina included them in the stationery suite in an excellent way and  Sofia used them for her extraordinary flower arrangements. Sara and Chiara of Infraordinario captured it all in these dreamy pictures, Enjoy!

Here is Valentina’s comment. My brides always make me blush!

I was following Trendinozze’s blog since many months, dreaming of those weddings where every detail was perfect, so when me and Luigi got engaged it was natural for me to call Laura. We fell in love with our venue, a fantastic place near Bracciano Lake and we knew we wanted a wedding that was filled with personal touches. Laura made order in our wishes and ideas and helped us find exceptional vendors that have worked for us with care and passion. It was easy finding an harmony together and we became almost a friend: when less than 20 days before the wedding a huge problem happened to our family she kept us calm and helped managing it all. The day of the wedding I finally saw all the things we talked about coming together, I saw our guests relaxed and happy, admiring the paper flowers, the seating chart made with books, the personalized menus, the gorgeous flowers paired with vintage books and all the other impeccable handmade touches that Laura made for us and that helped make our wedding even more special… thank you so much!
