From the floral designer Copihue Floral Studio: "We wanted to tell a story of a natural and authentical love, with a touch of elegance and luxury details. All made by a natural design but at the same time by important shapes and heights.We wanted to use local foliage and fruits, like plums and its greenery, to make the compositions natural. We mixed it with romantic flowers like English roses, lisianthus and with the magical smell and shape of tuberosa. All made unusual by the use of local dried flowers, like carrot flower, and make light by the use of latifolium and fresh scabious."
From Weddings by Silke: "The bride Adina was wearing a simple and elegant dress with of the amazing designer Anna Kara. The portrait shooting take place in the huge gardens around the est. 1640 Villa. For the dinner we've decided for one of the most picturesque spots - on the terrace of the Stalla with an stunning view over the valley. We choose sand colored tablecloth and napkins which fitted wonderful with the warm honey tone of the amazing silk runner of CFleurs Design. The stunning centerpiece, the romantic glasses with golden edges and the golden cutlery completed the perfect look.
We decided on a simple stationery suite with honey colored silk ribbon of CFleurs Design. The pretty fans of Boho Quartier for the guests on this hot summer day was personalized by the talented calligrapher Zarah Calligraphy. Since we have 100% destination weddings at Villa Montanare, most of the weddings having a rehearsal. We started with an Aperitif the day before the wedding, to welcome the guests and enjoying this magical place. The beautiful bride was wearing a simple modern cream colored jumpsuit and statement earrings with the Girasole flower of Delbrenna - which was designed by Weddings by Silke for this editorial. The wedding day started with a dreamy ceremony on the highest olive terrace in the backyard of the Villa Montanare. The wonderful girls from Copihue created a beautiful arch constellation in an old olive tree. They used light fabric and blush and honey colored flowers."
