Buongiorno! Today’s real wedding features a gorgeous Philippine couple, Bea and Jay. Bea is a beautiful, sweet and adoring mother. Jay is handsome and secure father. They chose Florence as the location for their wedding and it was the definition of pure elegance.
They decided to wed in a small church under the hills of Fiesole. The intimate ceremony was decorated with olive branches and lanterns that illuminated the aisle. Her bouquet was an amazing work of art, composed with flowers ranging from burgundy to red and blush with touches of white and wild, natural foliage. It was a masterpiece, simultaneously elegant and country-style, and it perfectly complemented Bea’s beautiful lace gown.
After the wonderful, traditional Philippine ceremony, the guests were invited to go to the gorgeous 5 star hotel, Villa Cora, for the reception. A rich buffet of appetizers and cocktails awaited them. Upon arrival the were accompanied by a fantastic jazz band to get everyone in a festive mood.
Dinner took place in the Sala degli Specchi, or Hall of Mirrors, with six oval tables. The tables were decorated with exceptional arrangements of rich-toned flowers, as well as candleholders in various heights, rendering the atmosphere supremely romantic. Bea’s father, a famous Philippine pianist, decided to play as the newlyweds cut their wedding cake. Afterwards everyone made their way to the Pasha, a club-like atmosphere within the hotel. They danced and partied all night long, wishing it would never end!
