Elegant wedding for our British couple

Ara Coeli wedding rome

Wedding Felicia and Darryl

It was absolute pleasure to work with our British couple on their dream wedding! From the beautiful ceremony itself to the lively and fun reception, it really was a perfect day. What made it even more special was the many friends and family of the couple who traveled from England and the United States to help celebrate!

The bride looked gorgeous in her white dress with lace at the top, and her three bridesmaids looked exquisite in their long, dark navy dresses. Her hair was styled into a beautiful upsweep, which was accented by small white roses. It looked stunning and even matched her bouquet! Her mother was there to help her get ready for the day. She was quite the beautiful bride!

The couple chose Santa Maria in Aracoeli, one of the most famous and beautiful churches in Rome, as the location for the ceremony. Lovely white flowers decorated the church, while the architectural details and ornate paintings in the church naturally decorated the remainder. A string quartet at the church filled the room with beautiful music during the ceremony. The church is located atop of Capitoline Hill, so afterward the couple took pictures overlooking the Forum, one of the most historic pieces of Rome!

The reception was held at a Villa, which is known for having one of the absolute best views in Rome! There were many thoughtful and cute details, including ribbons on the chairs, which were the same blush pink accent color they used for the menus too. White and pink roses filled the glass vase centerpieces. There were even fun sparklers and bubbles that many of the guests enjoyed!

Smiles and laughs filled with room during the reception. There was a piano, cello, percussion, and even a DJ with live sax and bongos for the after dinner dancing! The couple and guests alike had a fantastic time dancing and spending time in one of the most picture-perfect venues. The ceremonial bouquet toss took place outside near the balcony, where the skyline of Rome illuminated the night. It truly was breathtaking!

Sometimes pictures really are worth a thousand words. So many of the wonderful, once-in-a-lifetime memories were captured of our beautiful British couple, and we are so happy to have had the opportunity to help plan those special moments on their wedding day!
