Modern Italian Destination Wedding Inspiration
Christmas is almost upon us! A time for relaxation, being with family, and resolution. And if you're planning a wedding, you might be using this time to get some new inspiration for your own big day. We're ending our calendar year with a collaboration between many of our curated Fine Art Curation vendors. And this Italian based wedding inspiration is the perfect starting point to help you curate your own style of classic, high fashion, modern take on weddings.
Fine Art Curation photographer Julia Rapp teamed up with our fave Hawaii based and destination stylist/planner Designs by Hemingway to create this emotive and romantic wedding style. Add in our fave Hair and Make Up Artist Frank Giacone and sublime wedding shoes by Wedding Sparrow member Bella Belle Shoes, you've got a stylishly contemporary Italian wedding editorial... From everyone at the Wedding Sparrow office, we wish you a Merry Christmas and a matrimonial New Year!
From photographer Julia Rapp: "This beautiful editorial was inspired by old stones, olive grove cliffs and so charming Italian arches, it almost feels like you have entered into a wonderful painting . La Badia has that unique historical feeling combined with incredible views over the Umbria hills. As a photographer I felt like I was living a dream, every step and every corner were beautiful and it was such a pleasure to photograph gorgeous creations of Designs by Hemingway ! She is such an incredibly talented artist ! She created so dramatic and lush ceremony backdrop with olive branches and the beautiful table under the oval arch, it was all full of thoughtful details, gorgeous silk layering and candle light which made the atmosphere even more magical. The bride had three gorgeous dresses and the groom stylish Italian attire matching the place. Charming olive grove alley overlooking the region gave us an amazing backdrop for the couple session with sun getting down over the hills.”
