Every detail of this wedding was perfectly coordinated and absolutely exquisite!

There were so many gorgeous photos of the villa itself that I had to include them. The villa played a huge role in the wedding celebration and so it was only right that it got its due.

The ceremony was a Protestant ceremony with legal significance. It took place in the English garden of the villa. Fortunately the garden was replete with lavender, rosemary and assorted wild flowers which, coincidentally were the colors and theme of the wedding itself. This may have been the only detail left to chance and it worked out perfectly all the same.

The seated dinner was on one long table on the main lawn. We had transformed the lawn into a formal garden. It was festooned with string lights with one long, dramatic dinner table. The centerpieces were composed of many small pots of aromatic herbs and lavender. There was also the occasional purple hydrangea adding a pop of color. And there were lots and lots of candles in all sizes.

After the dinner was finished the guests were lead to the pond area for the cake cutting. Unbeknownst to them the pathway was lined with hanging lights to create an enchanted forest. Once the cake was cut the fireworks burst forth. The fireworks had been a secret and so it was a fun surprise for the guests.

Afterward the guests were lead to the after dinner dancing area by a saxophonist and percussionist. Right before arriving to the dancing area the guests stopped to form a human tunnel of sparklers which then the couple walked through to begin the after dinner party. The guests danced and celebrated late into the night with a DJ Live who had been flown over from London for the occasion.
