giovanna + christian {married}

On June 11th, Giovanna and Christian said “I do” amongst their closest family and friends, some of whom had traveled half way around the world to be there.  Beth and I had the immense pleasure of photographing it all.

Giovanna and Christian are the sweetest people, and they had some lovely details to their day.  Just look at these gorgeous letterpress invitations by Bella Figura at Boxcar Press…

undefinedundefinedundefinedAll the folks in the b/w image on the right below traveled from Giovanna’s home country Italy!  Not only was the group super good looking, and stylish, they were a ton of fun as well!  I tired to pick up a few Italian words for the day.  Amicci de Italiano…

Loved these beautiful bracelets that all of the bridesmaids received as favors from Giovanna…

These two are so dang cute!

Christian’s new father in law presented him with these cufflinks at the rehearsal dinner, and I love Giovanna’s dress detail and bouquet!

For their wedding favors, Giovanna had all of these porcelain vessels hand painted.  Don’t you love these photographs that Beth made…

For a very long time now, I’ve wanted to go to Italy!   Now that I’ve had the pleasure of working with my first Italian bride, I’m sure I have to go there.  I’m just hoping it is sooner rather than later.

Giovanna and Christian thank you so much for your kindness, generosity, and most of all your open hearts!  We love you. xoxo, Alice
