Red and white tablescape for Italian wedding

In the mood for a wedding in Sicily? The most lovely, lavish one too? Sure ya are. Especially when it comes complete with three days of wild experiences and dreamy spots along the way, including the first EVER wedding ceremony at the 3rd century Greek theatre of Taormina. (Clearly Strawberries & Champagne are magicians.) Itir + Karim were all about entertaining guests, and yep, saying they pulled it off is totally the understatement of the year…

Thanks to Raquel Benito for sharing these photos!

The first day included a pre-wedding party the couple dubbed “Fellini and bellinis night”, a costume party (with a moodboard included in the invite!) where the couple arrived by boat. What a way to welcome guests!
