Rachel and Cortney
Rachel and Cortney wanted a small and intimate wedding, with just the people who meant the most to them there to celebrate their special day. Combining a wedding and honeymoon ticked all the boxes, and provided a perfect little escape to a sunny corner of Italy, on the Amalfi Coast. Sophisticated Weddings helped plan the wedding, and we just adored the pictures they shared with us, so here it is!
The couple wanted a luxury wedding somewhere with breathtaking views and amazing food! They really hit the jackpot with Palazzo Avino; with stunning views and fresh and delicious cuisine, ‘The Pink Palace’ provided the perfect fairytale wedding for the couple.
Rachel had her heart set on a low backed wedding dress that she had spotted on Pinterest. After trying on endless amounts of dresses, she settled on the perfect one… the very same one she had pinned all those years ago whilst in the first year of college. It was clearly meant to be!
Rachel and Cort accented their burgundy and fuschia palette with sparks of gold along with lush, natural green foliage. Such a perfect choice for an outdoor wedding, the palette gave bright bursts of colour alongside some golden luxury.
The couple sourced some amazing pieces from Etsy including their ‘Mr & Mrs’ place settings and guestbook. To commemorate their Italian wedding, they gave their guests hand painted personalised bottles of limoncello as favours.
Keeping it simple, the florist made sure Rachel’s favourite, peonies, were in her displays and bridal bouquet. Sitting alongside roses and lilies, the greenery gave some depth to the displays and provided a simple, yet beautiful wedding tablescape, sitting alongside clean white candles.
And what did the couple love most about the day?
“Getting to marry my best friend with our closest family and friends in a beautiful place. We knew that we wanted to honeymoon in Italy and on the Amalfi Coast, so we decided to just bring everyone along with us. The second I walked out I was completely in awe of how beautiful everything was. The entire day was so magical.”
