Casual alfresco wedding in Italy: Reem + Mohammed

Categories   Real Weddings

Castello di Montignano sounds like a heavenly place to get married. Because it kind of is. Its castle is just an hour’s drive north of Rome, maintains a vintage and modern feel, has a breathtaking view, a large garden, and was the perfect setting for Reem + Mohammed’s reception. Imagine having your ceremony in Lebanon and your reception in Italy. It sounds like a dream, and sounds like a relaxing way to plan a wedding. Be jealous (we are), because that’s what Reem + Mohammed got to do!

Oh how we love the invitations Reem designed!  At first, I wanted to use vintage handkerchiefs to print the invites on, but then opted for delicate fabrics for practical reasons. To ensure they arrived neatly and intact when sending them all over the world, I sealed them in vacuumed transparent plastic. 

Ok, we’ve got to learn how to do this hairstyle. Such a classic look!

Our families have always been close, but we had never really met until we both attended a common wedding in Beirut. Even then we both thought that the other was only interested in spending time with the other out of politeness due to the history of our respective families. In reality we both were very much interested in each other. 

Lunch in Italy, in the garden of a castle, with this view? Are you kidding us!?

I was after a fresh natural look, as if the flowers had been picked from a garden. We used hydrangeas, camille, roses, and peonies that were placed in glass jars and vases.

We want to party with this family!

One of Reem’s best friends surprised her by coming to the wedding wearing a dress which she embroidered on it their story, from the moment they met till the day her and Mohammed wed.

Sigh…what a view, what a wedding. Congratulations to the beautiful Reem + Mohammed!
