The Reception

What inspired you when you were planning your wedding? The overall vision was of a botanical wedding with delicate colors, and a vintage touch. There were many handmade details personalized just for us and really celebrated the things we love in our everyday lives.

What was your wedding menu? Given the heat, we did an antipasto table on the terrace. This featured fresh figs and local cheeses and meats. We had two seated main courses of fish and veal, then returned to the terrace for our sweets table.

  • The botanical theme is beautiful, and very fitting with a lakeside mountain location. Along with Luisa’s Jenny Packham dress, twinkle lights in the trees, and her bouquet they really achieved elegance.

  • It was really great to arrange this wedding. We are happy to work with such brilliant brides as Luisa. Thanks Snippet for sharing our work!
