Marche Hills Wedding Venue – Elena and Marco

“Don’t walk behind me; I may not lead.

Don’t walk in front of me; I may not follow.

Just walk beside me and we will find a way!”

(Albert Camus)

Le Marche Italy Wedding Photographer

I would like to thank Elena and Marco for choosing me as their photographer for their beautiful Marche hills wedding in Italy!

Marco and Elena are a very nice couple and we managed to create a strong and immediate empathic bond!  I can’t deny that I felt flattered when Elena, speaking about the wedding preparations, said clearly that they chose me as their wedding photographer even before scheduling a date: “to seize the moment is the job of a photographer but to deliver emotions is the gift of an artist…” … what can I say? Thank you so much!

Marco and Elena first met in 2012 and initially Elena could not think at all that he could have become the man of her life, so “methodical and old-fashioned” as he is. Then slowly they found out to be just perfect for each other … and finally they decided to create a family!

Elena is crazy about details and for her wedding, she relied to the professionalism of Leontine Lauffer as a wedding stylist, who in collaboration with the florist Silvia Merli of “Profumo di Fiori” interpreted perfectly their refined taste and their need to create a very romantic, elegant and delicate atmosphere!

There were many special details for their special day, some of them ordered online and other created  by the bride herself, such as:  white envelopes decorated in relief for rice and confetti, wedding favors made of test tubes with a light pink silk ribbon, the use of wooden and golden letters  used as placeholders,  wedding cake toppers with their names realized by an Australian girl! Elena was incredible in recreating in the smallest details the atmosphere they really wanted!

The ceremony was held in the lovely Church of San Severo in Montefelcino (PU), a location that I had shown myself to bride and groom, trying to interpret their taste and also considering the proximity to their wedding restaurant! This small church on top of an hill and in baroque style, contains a precious crucifix dating back to the fifteenth century, which is considered miraculous by the locals! Bride and groom immediately appreciated the beauty of this church!

For the wedding reception, Elena and Marco chose Villa La Cerbara, because, Elena says “: I fell in love with its position, spaces, meadows, the panoramic view over our beautiful hills, the not too posh yet stylish taste and its fantastic pool “, also suitable for Marco’s ” baroque mood”! The banquet was prepared by Summertrade which provided a high level catering with great satisfaction both of the couple and of their 300 guests!

There’s plenty to tell about their wedding dresses too! Elena chose a beautiful Bliss wedding dress by Monique Lhuillier, that she bought by Rebecca, in Piacenza and Loriblu wedding shoes. As a second dress, the bride wanted a tailored suit made of fabrics bought at Luisa Boutique in Cattolica and sewn by dressmaker Morena Romani. The real surprise was Marco though, who bought three outfits for the occasion, as a true star, all of them from the Marche tailoring Luca Paolorossi and shoes Il Gergo! He even smashed his beautiful bride!!! Even the clothes of witnesses and bride’s father came from the same couture!

Hairdresser for the occasion was Aldo Coppola by Tenti, in Montecchio and bridal makeup was made by Simona’s Aesthetic Center.

 Their wedding rings were bought at Francesco Ridolfi Orafo in Cattolica.

For a perfect wedding, the couple relied also on Mom Studio for an amazing video while music was performed by Nico Palombaro. There was also and an incredible fire show with music and synchronized swimming demo arranged by Ultrasound events.

What to say? This was a wedding certainly full of surprises, elegance, refinement, gentleness and so much love that I will truly never forget it!

Thanks again to Elena and Marco for choosing me as their wedding photographer in the Marche region, Italy, and thanks for their availability to be remembered in my blog!

My best wishes for a long and happy life together, guys!
