Real wedding: Alyssa + Lorenzo

Categories   Real Weddings

Let’s start the week with a pretty wedding whose history spans 3 continents. Lorenzo is from Peru, Alyssa is from Vermont, they were engaged in Peru’s Sacred Valley and they now live in Barcelona. They chose Vermont for their wedding for lots of reasons, but a big one was that Alyssa’s mom was super psyched for help with the planning and running around. Can’t pass up and offer like that! Especially since they’d be doing all the planning from Europe.

Lorenzo is a journalist and Alyssa works in fashion so their wedding style was a lovely mix of style and words, and they were dead set on hiring a super excellent photographer to document their day. Enter Our Labor of Love!

Alyssa designed her bridesmaids’ dresses and had them sewn by Kati the Seamstress in Spain. Isn’t that amazing? She also designed and made the belts herself.

They tried to incorporate as much of their own cultures in to the ceremony and reception as they could. They were super lucky to be married by a close friend of Alyssa’s family who is a Native American Shaman. She did a blessing using her drum at the end of the ceremony, and they used Spanish music as well as a song sung by Alyssa’s sister, “Sea of Love”, while she walked down the aisle.

Alyssa loves all things handmade and loved getting into the details of their day. They had Lorenzo’s sister illustrate their invites and they designed the rest of the paper goods themselves. Plus the flower boxes for their tables were handmade by Alyssa’s mom’s boyfriend, George Bedard.

The effort they put into their day was so worth it!

Beautiful day, Alyssa and Lorenzo! And as always, gorgeous pics OLOL!

Ooohhh! It's such a treat to see more photos of this magical wedding. Just look at those details...the vintage bridesmaid dresses with the blue Spanish espadrilles, the lush roses peeking out of aged wood boxes, the tree trunk ceiling beams, and the bride's ivory lace bolero, showing off the patterns in her 'from another world' dress. The lovely bride, and her delightful mother, put so much love, care, and energy into everything; I really miss them. Enchanting and gorgeous. Bravo.

Do you have any idea where she got her wedding dress? It's beautiful!
