Real Wedding Stories

An Italian Love Story

Enveloped by the beauty of Rome, sealed in true love, Giada and Mario celebrate their nuptials with a style that is all their own. The Italian love story captured by photographer Elisa Rinaldi.

An Italian Love Story takes us on a quaint journey of unassuming wedding day fashion and inspiring love. Giada and Mario opted for a black and white color story, giving the day a classic palette. The bride donned a vintage dress paired with a chic jacket, and a floor length veil by designer Justin Alexander. Tucked in her sleek bun was an embellished hair piece by Motif Floral Accessories. The dapper groom complemented Giada’s chic ensemble in a black three-piece Petrelli Uomo suit. Notes of ancient Italy and Art Nouveau serve as the perfect backdrop for the beautiful real wedding.
