The Couple:

Religious Ceremony (Pappafico, Sampieri, Scicli, Ragusa)


Restaurant Acquamarina (Donnalucata, Scicli, Ragusa)

While the amazing light tried to steal the show at Erminia and Vincenzo’s Sicily beach wedding, the romance and glamour of the day have my full attention.

Erminia wore a non-traditional white gown, adorned with shiny rhinestones, setting the tone for her wedding day and bringing the focus to the love their guests came to celebrate. Adding in neutral shades like, cream, pale gray and with a touch of lavender color to my DIY elements provided a serene and sophisticated atmosphere. At sunset the atmosphere was romantic and everything was shining for the amazing sunshine.

You, by my side in the sand,
you are the sand,
you sing and you are a song,
today the world
is my soul:
song and sand,
today the world
is your mouth:
Let me
be happy
on your mouth, on the sand,
be happy just because, because I am breathing
and because you are breathing,
be happy, because I am touching
your knee
and it is as though I am touching
the blue skin of heaven
and its pristine air….. (Pablo Neruda: Ode to the Happy Day)

Their wedding colors were white, cream, light grey, and lavander color. My motivation as wedding planner for the colors stemmed from the love of her wedding dress. She would weared a very light non-traditional withe peony dress, and I did not want to disappoint her, I wanted to choose the colors that were in keeping with the shades of the beach so I spent hours looking at Pantone to choose the right combinations of color.

Naturally, for the bride and groom the wedding ceremony was a blur, but somehow they still remember all the details. their ceremony was perfect. they shared tears and laughter. It was everything the both of them ever hoped for.

The venue for the wedding reception choosed was The Ristorante Acquamarina that arises above a cliff on the sea, few meters away from the beach of Donnalucata, a small hamlet of Scicli. The marvelous sea view that you can enjoy from the wide windows gives a very romantic atmosphere. Was a lovely wedding.

The care for details, handmade, made the most elegant and original wedding: the bouquet, tableau setting, favors for the guests, guestbook and the decorations for the tables, everything realized with passion and love; as well as they had wanted Erminia and Vincenzo.

The fireworks lit up the sky of a warm September evening representing and reflecting their love.
