From the bride: I love the idea of “Old World” romance. Castles, sunsets over the rolling hills, handpicked flowers, trailing vines, tall grass, cobblestone pathways and warm colours.

Rob is classic with an appreciation for simplicity. His style is earthy, and timeless. We both gravitate toward surroundings that feel like they’ve got a story to tell. “Old and weathered” will always rival “chic and shiny” for us. We made mostly everything by hand, including my dress, and the flower girl’s dress.

Our table dressings were hand-sewn out of vintage curtains that I bought from the second-hand store. We made an olive branch garland to lay down the centre of the tables. We fashioned all of our own bouquets from fresh flowers purchased at the local farmer’s market on the day before the wedding.

With a love for all things “old fashioned” & “timeless”, the historical setting of Petritoli created the perfect mood.
