Eloping it Italy, you say? Sure, you could go the traditional route and say your vows amongst the olive trees or on the Riviera. OR…you could do this: venture into the mountains for an off-the-beaten path ceremony with alpacas! Gloria and Elisa, planners + stylists from Coquette Atelier, traveled up to Mair ALP Aca with photographer Irene Fucci to scope out the new venue, Val Maira. They found a cute little village, stunning views, fluffy friends, and buckets of inspiration for an elopement. Here’s the inspiration from Irene:
We envisioned a wild at heart couple looking for an active vacation in the summer, trekking over some of the youngest mountains in the world, visiting fairytale castles and eating delicious apple strudel, that at the end a vacation with friends decides to celebrate its love with such a stunning view. They’d want a simple yet romantic celebration under a modern arch, then an informal lunch with the bridesmaids and groomsmen. The icing on the cake? The perfect sweet table and some cute pictures with the alpacas of course!

A Ceremony in the Italian Alps
The inspiration for the color palette came directly from the landscape and its earthy tones. Everything was infused with neutrals like beige, brown, sand and warm grays.
