Guys, Olivia + Stefano’s Italian wedding was pretty darn epic. With Masseria Potenti for a venue (which they have nothing but good things to say about!), they hosted a 3-day event with different themes: First, a “Travellers and Troubadours” theme that included wood-fired pizza, music + entertainment, and bonfires in the garden. Then, an Italian market-inspired wedding with canapés served in food stalls and a banquet style dinner. Lastly, a “1950s Beach Party and Seafood Grigliata”, where everyone rocked 50s hairstyles and swimming hats, dined on BBQ seafood, and surrounded themselves with inflatable seagulls, rings, and dolphins. Whew! Does this sound like the most amaze wedding weekend ever, or what?! We say YES!

Photog Cinzia Bruschini, who they loved for her intimate way of photographing each and every little moment, captured the whole event for us all to marvel at:

Olivia’s original gown wasn’t finished with only two days left (gasp!!). But she found a tailor in London to customize a drop-dead-gorgeous Reem Acra dress she found at Harrods. Not only was her gown not ready in time, but neither were the bridesmaids’ gowns. Luckily, J. Crew saved the say with mint green + ivory dresses.

The ceremony itself was on a hilltop in a Basilica cathedral in Oria, near their venue. Goodness…

Olivia wanted a unique bouquet that would last. She chose silk flowers + unripe blackberry stems paired with tie-dye ribbon, and collaborated with florist La rosa Canina to bring all the floral details to life. Eva of Chic Weddings in Italy also styled everything with Olivia’s vibrant aesthetic to mind… a true collaborative effort.

The bride’s most unforgettable moment:

Driving from the church to the venue after we were married, just Stefano and I, with the sun setting, speeding along the road, in a classic Fiat 500 that had just been given to us outside the church by our parents—an amazing and very unexpected present! The roof was down, the cans were clattering along the road and the extra large balloons were being slowly torn away by the wind and flying off into the distance! It was like we were literally starting a journey into our future together.

Olivia says, We love travel, different cultures, and embracing the environment around us, wherever we are in the world. I think the style throughout the wedding represented our desire to enjoy the everyday things we have around us without the need to overcomplicate.

We always love to see one of our favorite wedding trends, bohemian, kicked up a notch. (Think back to those vibrant woodsy bohemian wedding ideas from last month, if you’d like a little proof.) So when these images by Danielle Poff popped up in our inboxes, we knew they’d fit right in (and then some!). Ashley of Buzzworthy Events whipped up a scene loaded with lovely details all wrapped into one without feeling even the slightest bit busy. See what we’re getting at below:

Model Stevie donned a vintage 1930s slip dress adorned with a shoulder chain by Nous Savons in Oakland, CA. A geometric hairpiece and a vintage-inspired ‘do by Katie Nash completed the ensemble. Gorg!

Your new fave color combo, right? Ashley of Buzzworthy Events says, I was most motivated by textures and adding depth into everything. I wanted richness and colors that added to that feel. I really dug deep to find the right elements​ like rich brown and indigo​.

Jennifer, a creative project manager at lululemon athletica + her guy Jeff, a musician (member of Gold & Youth) knew instantly that Parker Palm Springs was the venue for them. They also had an editorial aesthetic in mind for their photos, so when a friend showed them James Moes’ website, they were hooked. We mean, how amaze are these images?

They wanted the venue’s midcentury aesthetic to come through in everything they did, from their wedding website to their outfits, and beyond:

Jennifer says, The hotel’s interiors were designed by Jonathan Adler, and it is eclectic, extremely chic, and a little bit over the top – in the best way! Jeff and I have been vacationing at the Parker for a number of years and every time we go we are blown away by the setting, the decadence, and the service at the hotel. It’s so relaxed and intimate, incredibly luxurious, private, and can be a real party if you are in the mood for it. They were so happy to find Cathy at Celebrations Of Joy to make sure everything ran smoothly.

In lieu of traditional favors, these two wrote each of their 35 guests a note letting them know why they are so special to them. They got to watch everyone read their notes, and it’s one of their fave things about having such an intimate affair.

Jeff and I both have musical tastes that lean towards the 60s, 70s, and 80s so to us the most important thing was setting the mood through the music. Our most extravagant splurge was flying in our favorite DJ (and friend) Trevor Risk to do all the sound design for the day. He played everything from Cole Porter to Depeche Mode.

Jen’s advice: Trying to please everyone or get unanimous approval will drive you crazy. It should be fun! Our motto was “if it feels stressful—it’s getting cut”!
