PLANNING YOUR PERFECT WEDDING IN ITALY

A charming wedding at Castello di Semivicoli 

Anthony and Arianna both live in Connecticut US but decided to tie the knot in the lovely Italian town of Bucchianico, the birthplace of the groom’s father, nestled in the beautiful region of Abruzzo.

Intimate wedding

When Arianna first contacted me, she got just engaged and was looking forward to planning an intimate wedding with guests coming mostly from the US while a small part from the Italian branch would also attend. It was Anthony’s wish to honor his Italian roots and get married in the same town his father was born.
A few months later, and after my team and I made several trips to the area to set all details and meet in person all the vendors, we were ready to go ahead with the event.

On the morning of the wedding

Arianna and her bridal crew got ready in the medieval suite of Castello di Semivicoli where the cocktail and the wedding dinner were set to take place. This stunning 17th-century castle, owned by the Masciarelli family, famous winemakers, is nested on the hills of Abruzzo, offering dramatic views of the countryside and of the Maiella mountain. It was fully restored in 2004 with total respect for the historical characteristics.
The ceremony happened in the beautiful old baroque church of San Camillo in Bucchianico, located in the historical center of the town.
The bride had asked for an elegant and subtle setting of flower arrangements with eucalyptus leaves, peonies, freesia, and roses. The soothing sounds of a cello and violin accompanied the voice of a Soprano during the whole religious ritual enchanting the guests.

After an emotional ceremony

where we witnessed the groom’s tears quite often, the couple left for the photo shoot while their guests headed for the castle to be welcomed by a cocktail party in the garden. The entire venue was outfitted in the chosen color palette – blush pink, white and, green- in a country chic setting.
The 4-course dinner, based on the delicious Abruzzese specialties, was served in the main hall under the hundred years old vaults.
Then all the guests gathered in the cellar of the castle among the ancient barrels to watch the young couple cut the traditional flat Italian wedding cake.
The party went on till late in the evening with everyone dancing to the tune of the latest hits.
