Hello lovies! You all know how obsessed we are with destination weddings in Italy right? Well today, we have a really cute one to share with you all – Ilaria and Andrea’s Boho Inspired Wedding at Villa Papafava Frassanelle.
It’s always so special when a couple puts their own special touch on their big day, and that’s exactly what Ilaria and Andrea did. If you’re into sweet DIY confetti cones, gorgeous bohemian ceremony decor, bright hues and candid photographs, then you have to keep scrolling for this intimate destination dream!
FROM THE PHOTOGRAPHER:
An outdoor wedding is beautiful, especially if the location is an enchanted fairy tale park. This awesome couple wasn’t scared of some rain. Everything was super special and simple.
Ilaria and Andrea chose the Frassanelle estate For their wedding. This is a beautiful location for weddings in the Euganean Hills area, near Padua. Frassanelle is a large park, an ancient villa, its rural village, the barchessa and its immense portico, and then trees again and paths that lead to a majestic staircase, an ideal and scenic setting for the civil ceremony.
For the floral arrangements they chose the flowers and the colors of summer: many dahlias and then lisianthus, craspedia, Queen Anne’s lace, alstroemeria, chamomile, limonium, eryngium. The colors went from white to yellow, to pink in various shades, to lilac, with the darker touch of “black” dahlias.
FROM THE COUPLE:
We met in Venice during a hot summer day of 2007. We shared the first moments surrounded by friends, art and rock music. Our respective best friends were dating but after about a month the situation was reversed and we started our wonderful love story.
Ilaria, for Andrea’s 30th birthday, decided to pursue his big dream: see the northern lights. So, in November we took a couple of planes and reached the far north of Sweden.
Among snowy and fairy landscapes, in the magical evening of November 24th, the aurora manifested itself to the maximum of its magnificence. At that precise moment, Andrea kneeled down to ask the fateful question. In a succession of incredulity, smiles and tears, we promised to the universe our commitment to each other.
Thank you so much to the lovely couple and to Serena Genovese for sharing this destination wedding with us!
