Wedding at Castello di Semivicoli: Mikel & Lauren
Mikel and Lauren wedding at Castello di Semivicoli, Abruzzo, was a beautiful day! Mikel contact us one year before their wedding. Lauren has wrote me that they will love to have their Bid Day in Italy
They specify me to prefer a wedding in Abruzzo because Mikel had lived there. This beautiful couple lived in Berlin, she is American Citizen and he is Albanian Citizen. They dreamed a wedding like a party in a place that was characteristic of Italy Style. We proposed them a castle on the Abruzzo hills, its a magical place rustic outside but with a baronial style inside. This location had an history….during the second world war became an hospital for soldiers! Around the venue there is a very beautiful vineyard…the owners of this castle produce a very good wine not only in this place but also all over Abruzzo!
I remember very well the overlooking day with Mikel, because a few days after my baby was born! We decide together to have a civil ceremony inside the same location on the garden in front of the castle. The wedding color was light pink very romantic and elegant. The wedding style was country but chic! The ceremony has been very emotional, there were all people important for them. Lauren was very moved….their vows has been fantastic Some guests were italian, so we have made the ceremony in italian and english During the ceremony we have included the light ceremony, Mikel and Lauren has fired together a unique candle symbolizing their union. Faieta Fiori has made all the floral arrangements. After the ceremony bride and groom went with our photographer BG PHOTO to take some pics in the vineyard and later they had return to the castle to make the welcome aperitif After this all guests had come inside in the party hall to make the dinner The table plan has been made by us with jars, candles and placard with the same graphic of the invitations. The centerpiece was a wood with 3 jars with candles inside and also a vintage bottle with a fresh single flower.
For the cutting of the wedding cake and the buffet of fruit and dessert we had decided to have it on the secret garden. A beautiful garden hidden away and accessible only by steps. Here there was a magic and fantastic decoration made by us with lights, candles and so on! We have loved to project and realize this lights arrangements for their wedding in Abruzzo! The wedding cake has been accompanied by a fabulous firework show.
At the end of this the open bar with cocktails, beer and good wine was available for all guests. They have dance a lot and at the end of the party they gave as a present a bottle of wine produced in the same castle in Abruzzo. The guest have loved it.
