For those of you who love all things Italian, this wedding is for you. (Me included.) Chiara and Tom’s Italitan-inspired wedding was the perfect balance of elegance and style with a classy nod to their Italian heritage. The wedding took place at non other than the Loew’s Portofino Bay Hotel here in Orlando, who could ask for a more fitting backdrop? Jessica and I met Chiara and her lovely bridesmaids at her bridal suite, which overlooked her ceremony site. I absolutely fell in LOVE with Chiara’s style when I saw her beautiful pale blue Cristiano Lucci dress, sparkling Benjamin Adams stilettos, and glamourous accessories! I knew we were going to have lots of fun documenting all of these yummy details amongst many other beautiful moments throughout their day. Chiara had an amazing energy to her, laughing and joking around with everyone she ran into. I have to say, we love it when our brides are this relaxed and excited! Tom looked dapper in his custom black tuxedo with his wedding date embroidered on the inside of his lapel. He gave his groomsmen classic pocket watches just before we photographed their portraits…One of my favorite gifts for the guys. Chiara and Tom exchanged vows in the Villa Piazza and had their gorgeous reception in the Venetian Ballroom. Rich hues of hot pink and amber uplighting set the tone of the party. Large glass vases filled with ivory hydrangeas and pale pink roses and tons of candlelight provided the perfect amount of romantic ambiance. Sweet dances and moving toasts were made and not one guest was in their seat. Chiara and Tom’s evening was a spectacular celebration filled with love from their closest family and friends. Congrats you two!
