Romantic Surprise Italian Wedding

Jacqueline and Trebor’s wedding in Italy was a surprise to everyone, who thought they were simply participating in a styled shoot until the night before when guests received gorgeous watercolor invitations from Signora e Mare. We are swooning over this stunning romantic fete they held at Villa Bertolami in Rome! These breathtaking images from Buffy Dekmar make us feel as though we were there—almost—and we’re so happy to share the details with you. Puffy pink and green blooms in loose arrangements and Jacqueline’s amazing oversize bouquet are from Bo Boutique Flowers, and we’ve never seen anything quite as lovely. They are the perfect complement to Jacqueline’s bespoke vintage-style gown from LWD Couture. To help pull off this surprise affair, Jacqueline and Trebor asked Fine & Fleurie to help coordinate the peach and turquoise details, from the garden setting of the reception to Jacqueline’s beautiful colorful coat to the intricate cake put together by Natalizi. We just can’t get enough of this fabulous wedding!

    6. What an honor to be a part of this special couple’s wedding day! The fact that it was a surprise elopement, a dream turned reality (in ITALY) through months of collaboration with Jessica of Fine and Fleurie and the other talented team members makes it that much sweeter! Thanks for sharing. xo

    7. Thank you so much for this beautiful feature, and to everyone for their lovely comments. I can honestly say that creatively, Retreat Rome has been one of the most incredible experiences, while emotionally on a whole other level… Being a part of the secret elopement preparation, then witnessing the marriage of Jackie and Trebor and creating the floral details of their day, was so special. Here’s to many more truly inspired workshops and life events.
      Love Amy – Bo Boutique Flowers & Styling xo
