Katie & Johnny Intimate September Wedding
(Photo by Kellie Scott) Katie and Johnny’s wedding has a special meaning to us, as it was the only wedding we managed to plan and execute in 2020, in the middle of the pandemic emergency. In 2020 COVID-19 halted the weddings plans of thousands of couple, that were obliged to postpone or cancel their destination wedding in Italy. Katie and Johnny never gave up on the idea of getting married in Tuscany in September that year. It wasn’t easy to keep up with the continuously changing social distancing rules, travel restrictions and rules regulating events, but they managed not to lose their faith and eventually, their dream came true. Katie and Johnny’s wedding was an intimate celebration, with close family and friends. This gave them the chance to focus on only each other the entire day. They chose to keep it simple, but tasteful. They decided to have their wedding a in a location that meant a lot to them, as it has been their favorite holiday spot in Tuscany over the last few years. The joy of getting together with the loved ones to celebrate, set the tone of the wedding from beginning to end, and made every moment memorable to them. The bride and groom went for a minimal, elegant and ethereal style, extremely delicate and light. The general idea was of having dried flowers mixed up with fresh flowers. The color palette included white, pink yellow and black. For the table setting they chose white plates and gold brass cutlery, paired with minimal floral arrangements, made with delicate thin stems in amber bottles and log centre pieces. The loose and airy bridal bouquet with soft black touches was a real gem. They strongly wanted a moon gate ceremony arch partially covered with flowers and pampas in a crescent shape. It was a feathery masterpiece, and it looked even more beautiful once we placed it against the stunning backdrop of the unspoiled Val d’Orcia landscape. Besides looking amazingly beautiful, the moon gate was perfect to multi purpose; being easy to move and stable, we managed to use it as a top table during dinner and as frame for the cake. It’s a good choice whenever you think that it will be hard to predict whether the ceremony will be outside or inside. We cherished every moment of that strongly desired wedding. Every time that we go back with our mind to how hard was 2020 for the wedding industry, it reminds us how much we love our job.
