About a year prior to the wedding, Courtney and Rick wrote to us with this vision:
“…For the venue itself I am open to different ideas, but have visioned some places the involve a little taste of the countryside and the city.
I saw some beautiful ‘castle-like’ structures that encompassed that traditional yet breathtaking feel on your website. Just from browsing the internet, Rick and I have been drawn more towards Florence – Tuscany locations, although it’s hard to commit to that, since we have never been to Italy.
I saw one video that showed the couple and the wedding party walking through the streets of an Italian town, and the locals were shouting our well wishes to them. This is something that is particularly interesting to me! I am a very classic woman, I want my wedding to be timeless.
I have chose black and white for my colors with accents of gold to create a more luxurious feel. Our last name, Biancofiori (which translates to “white flower”), will tell you that we only want white flowers at our wedding and the events around it.
White flowers are simply beautiful to me, I want everything from start to finish to represent us as a couple, what we love, what we do, and what we want to share with our family and friends.
We thought it would be amazing to have a blessing read to us in Italian, and we both wanted to say something in our vows in Italian, if we can get it down!
Once back home, following the wedding, the couple wrote:
“…We have made it back home safe and sound! Ben, Rick and I would like to sincerely thank you again for such an outstanding coordination of our wedding day! It was beyond amazing and a true fairy-tail that we will remember forever!!
Courtney and Rick
