Celebrating your first anniversary is pretty exciting. You get to relive your wedding day, flip through your photos and watch your wedding video all over again. It’s bliss. But so is celebrating with a party. Remember Olga + Sende’s Italian wedding? Hint: It was also one of our favorite weddings of 2012. Well they decided to go back to Italy for their 1st anniversary with their very fashionable family & friends. Clara Boatto of Chic Weddings in Italy did such a beautiful job with their wedding that Olga brought her on to plan & design their elegant bohemian style banquet party.
Now check out the party in motion in this sweet video by Origami Videography:
A few words from Clara on designing their anniversary party:
The party was very different from their wedding day, still very elegant but crazier. We organised a gyspy style banquet, with bongos for the aperitif and a make over corner. Everything was set up among the vineyards, with ancient rugs on the grass, mismatched chairs, centrepieces rich of fruit and flowers, old maroccan teapots and church candelabras. It was too beautiful to be real…and all of a sudden, before they even started to eat it rained! Strong rain that wiped out the whole setting…but the atmosphere was just too great to be ruined and we decided to continue partying inside. In 10 minutes we moved all the decor in the ancient mill room where they ended up having dinner. After hours of delicious homemade food, they then moved outside again for the dessert corner and to dance until morning.
