An Irish Wedding in Rome…

Wedding Dara and Trisha

Our Irish couple, celebrated their May wedding in the iconic city of Rome. Roughly 25 guests gathered in the historic 12th century basilica, which featured a beautiful staircase in front (a wonderful backdrop for wedding photos). Prior to going to the church, D. and T. rented a Limo and drove around Rome sightseeing and enjoying the beautiful city!    

The interior of the church was decorated with an abundance of beautifully detailed frescos and a wooden coffered ceiling. The interior columns were adorned with antique crystal chandeliers… very romantic!    

I really loved the dresses and bouquets they chose for their wedding. T.’s wedding gown was simply perfect! The lace detailing, rhinestone accented belt, and slim fit flattered her perfectly. Not to mention her delicate teardrop earrings…too pretty! Bridesmaids wore long, plum-colored dresses and they all carried lovely white rose bouquets. I also loved the backs of the bridesmaids’ dresses; lace fabric framed a cutout on their upper backs.  

Before entering the reception, guests enjoyed cocktails at a rooftop bar while D. and T. snuck away to take wedding photos. The newlyweds chose to take pictures in front of the Colosseum and Villa Borghese, both of which proved to be beautiful backdrops! The reception took place on a hotel rooftop overlooking many historic monuments.

There was one long table decorated with red rose bouquets and large glass candleholders. On each place setting, there were small boxes containing Italian Jordan almonds decorated with colorful ribbons and bows. In addition, each guest was given a small Vespa to commemorate the special day…how cute! An Italian trio played throughout the reception, and there was inevitably an abundance of speeches, tears and laughter. We wish these newlyweds nothing but the best!
