Happy Thanksgiving to all our lovely readers! Today we have a pretty Italian wedding that is suitable for the day that’s in it, with the talented Paolo Manzi. Giulia and Alessandro wanted a wedding celebration that was simple, with family and friends around them. They wanted to savor time with the people they love instead of getting stressed out over details. A great basis for a wedding we think! And lots of people will be doing just the same with their loved ones today.
Alessandro and Giulia met over ten years ago on a summer evening “while talking about music, travel and Gabriel Garcia Marquez”. One thing led to another.. and eventually to a proposal by Alessandro on a windy mountain in Patagonia! The couple wanted to avoid the usual stereotypes of a wedding and to model theirs more on a party with friends. They didn’t want to have a particular theme but did keep to a colour scheme of lime green for the reception.
Giulia and Alessandro found planning the wedding stressful but amusing at the same time. They mainly went with their impulse- and everything seemed to fall into place. If the couple have advice from their experience it would be this: “Plan everything in a very short time without thinking too much and do what you like most. Make decisions and choose the things that represent you truly. On the day everybody will love what you love.”
Best of luck to Giulia and Alessandro in their future together and special thanks to Paolo Manzi for sharing the lovely photos and the couple’s story. Hope you have a lovely Thanksgiving!
