Bride and Groom are a Young Italian couple, who lives in New York. So the guests came from US and Italy. They contacted me saying “we live in New York, but we would like to get married in Italy, we must return to Italy to renew our documents, we would like to take this opportunity and get married. Would you manage to organize our wedding in 50 days?”
The location was their weakness, on the one hand they wanted to get married in their city Milan and on the other they wanted to celebrate their big day on the Alps, frame that was the background to the most intense moments of their love story. For them it was a more emotional than rational choice and in any case they would have lost something. So I suggested: what about planning a 2 days wedding? One in Milan and One on the Alps? You can see the result. First day in Milan, the Civil ceremony in the Royal Palace, near the Duomo and an aperitif in perfect “Milanese” style. Second day in Courmayeur, Symbolic ceremony overlooking the mountains and wedding reception in a brasserie.
In Courmayeur it was raining, so we planned the ceremony inside, in the wellness area of the location, because it has a wonderful stained glass overlooking the mountains and it is in a typical Aosta Style with wood everywhere.
The challenge was to completely change the furniture of the wellness area, using potted plants, wooden chairs and white blankets of fur. For the Wedding lunch, we used the wooden tables of the location, wooden chairs, antique aluminium placemats, wooden place holders and bordeaux napkins. As centrepiece we used only lights and candles. We organised a photobooth station for Guests, Using a modern version of the Polaroid. The couple and their friends were too young to know that the polaroid was modern also in ’80 😊
