It was the quickest international trip to date. I landed and 48 hours and 10 minutes later I was on a plane to leave again! But what a 48 hours and 10 minutes!! (even complete with TWO gelatos in a 40 minutes period… And very little sleep, because who wants to sleep when they are in Italy?!)
This is a story of a gorgeous destination wedding stylized shoot in Turin, Italy. Created by Giovanna Bossi owner of Gio Bossi and Sofi Design.
For this Italy wedding, I wandered the grounds of the Villa and captured three rolls of film of details and views. Giovanna so carefully picked every spot to perfection. Including every part the villa and grounds had to offer. And she maximized everything!
You want to make sure all of your carefully selected pieces are captured and shown in your wedding story! We spent a couple of hours setting up some flatlays that we so detail oriented. From the hand painted dessert cards to the amazingly unique custom wedding stationery suite.
Our bride and groom had the ideal locations for their getting ready photos. So many dreamy rooms inside Villa Cimena!
Make sure you keep a lot of time for your couples’ portraits! After all, it is your wedding, you will want plenty of photographs of the two of you! Take your time to do these photographs with your photographer, you will want to savor this time together! Getting to know my couples and to be able to let their personalities shine through in their photographs is something I love! I absolutely swoon over the intimate, romantic moments.
Make sure you laugh and have fun together too!
Ceremony and receptions tell a special story as well. This is extremely important for being a wedding storyteller. Large scale set up is important to capture, as well as the tiniest of details. Even individual flowers are important! The dripping of the wax on the candles that has created ambience for your guests. Every carefully thought out detail. I also love having my couples interact within the area of ceremony and reception.
Giovanna created individual flower stem vases for the tables. I was so amazing by all of her attention to every detail! And what she did not have, she created herself!
If you have special areas set up for certain moments in the wedding day celebration, take your time and soak those up. I always love to tell my couples to take 15 minutes are so just for them to have a drink together away from everyone else. It is amazing what that time can do to help relax a couple and let them enjoy each other. Yet another reason why I love being a wedding storyteller! All exclusively from Sofi Design
And enjoy your desserts! 🙂
