Lake Como Wedding: Laura + Matt

lake como wedding

It’s Friday, so let’s dream of a magical + beautiful place – how about something like Lake Como, Italy! Such a gorgeous backdrop for a wedding! Laura is American and Matt is Australian, but they live in London, so it was a bit of a challenge deciding where to hold their wedding that would be easy for their friends + family to attend. Since they both love Italy, they decided that Lake Como was the perfect location. Their color palette for the day was pulled from the setting: the greens of the mountains, the blues of the sky and the lake, and yellow of the sun and Italian lemons. It was most important for them to throw a party that their guests would remember forever, and to showcase their love of music, nature and traveling. Oh, and staying in a beautiful villa for a whole week was an incredible way to do that! Big thanks to Jonas Peterson for the photos and congrats to Laura + Matt!

As everyone says, there were so many, but one that I loved a lot was walking out of the back of the villa, on my way to the ceremony. Across the street there was a group of Italian policemen sitting outside the police station. When they saw me and my bridesmaids walk down the stairs they let out a crazy cheer and kept cheering the whole way. The wedding was on a Monday afternoon, so it really set in how crazy that moment was for me and the Italian village that we took over!

I just wanted to add that one of my favorite details was the signature cocktail we made. We named it after the Iceland volcano because that was how we met. To explain… In 2010 I was living in NYC and Matt was there on holiday. We met, on what was supposed to be his last night there. The next day the ash cloud from the volcano caused so many delays and cancellations so he wasn’t able to fly back to London for another week. We hung out every night on most days and fell in love. So our cocktail represented that! :)

Ask for help! I definitely tried to take on too much on my own, even though people offered to help. Also, make sure to EAT on the big day! Everyone is there to hand you a glass of champagne, but not many remember to offer you some food!

A Surprise Backyard Proposal

iphone text

Do you lovelies love proposal stories? They are one of my most favorite things! Doesn’t matter how simple or elaborate, there is just something so special about that moment in time. And love that so many couple’s these days are capturing those moments! Today’s was captured in both photos + film by the lovely duo of The Parsons. Here is Amy + Chris’ story as told by Ashley Parsons…

When we decided to host Amy’s birthday dinner in our backyard months earlier, we couldn’t have had any idea just how heavenly the night would become…as Chris had decided it was also the night he was going to ask her to become his wife. So we potted succulents, washed off the big table, and brought out the burlap, the lace that used to cover my nana’s table, and the antique English china my mom gave me when we were engaged. We poured the wine, filled the shasta oven-turned-cooler with beer, plugged the lights in, and turned the music on. Friends came from near and far, bearing casseroles and pies (Amy bringing her specialty sweet potato pie) and we had a night of laughing, crying happy tears, and toasting amy. Chris gave his toast last. We all thought it only fitting, since his came with a ring at the end.
