Are you a modern bride-to-be with a penchant for intimate celebrations and a love for design? If so, we have the perfect source of inspiration for your dream wedding. Imagine exchanging vows in picturesque Le Marche, Italy, surrounded by a select group of your closest loved ones, all while indulging in a meticulously curated experience of travel and design. In this editorial, we take you on a journey through a destination wedding that embodies minimalistic, European-modern style, with a palette of soft hues, shades of brown, and pristine whites. 

Our wedding journey begins with the vision of the talented designer and planner, Stefano Cornilli. He set out to craft an atmosphere of understated elegance, where less is undeniably more. Stefano’s choice of a muted color scheme, including pale colors, browns, and whites, set the tone for the entire event.

Floral Magic & Other Details

For the stationery, Wedding Mark lent their expertise with minimalist graphics and modern fonts, seamlessly complementing the contemporary aesthetic of the wedding.

Anthea Studio, the brilliant floral designers, worked their magic to infuse the wedding dinner with a harmonious blend of dusty pink, pale yellow, white, brown, and brick hues. A touch of pink ran like a thread of continuity along the tablescape, created using exquisite flowers such as Lilium, roses, achillea, and Lathyrus. The bouquet incorporated these same elements, with a striking addition of Anthurium, adding a touch of drama to the simplicity.

Minimal cups and plates by Studio Nautilus in various shades of brown provided the perfect vessels for the floral arrangements. Linear candle holders by ester & erik held slender, modern candles, casting a soft glow over the proceedings. Guests were treated to Olivia Fragrances as favors, adding a delightful local touch and leaving them with a beautifully designed gift from the couple as a cherished memory. The wedding cake by Dolcipassioni followed suit with its modern and minimalistic design, mirroring the chosen color palette and clean lines.

Bride & Groom Style: An Elegant Ensemble

The bride was a vision of modern elegance in a gown by Atelier Kamelia. The dress’s sleek lines and intricate details perfectly captured the refined style of the event. Luxury gold earrings by Nea Milano adorned the bride’s face, connecting the foliage-inspired jewelry with the blooms in her bouquet.

Lina Pagano worked her magic on the bride’s makeup and hairstyle, delivering a look that perfectly aligned with the event’s elegant and sophisticated ambiance. Neutral tones and long, straight hair exuded an austere yet captivating allure.

For the groom, a Linneo handmade suit was the epitome of minimalist style, enhanced by custom textile lining inside the jacket. Every modern detail harmoniously blended into the traditional setting, creating a unique experience that melded modernity with tradition.

In this destination wedding photoshoot, we’ve captured the essence of modern minimalism intertwined with elegant design. It’s an ode to the contemporary bride who seeks an intimate celebration that’s both stylish and meaningful. If you’re envisioning a wedding that’s a perfect fusion of tradition and modernity, take inspiration from this remarkable event that proves that sometimes, less truly is more.
