A lovely Elopement , for Aleia and Zachary, a couple from Los Angeles who decided to celebrate their union at Villa Sogara, an ancient residence surrounded by vineyards and olive trees. A villa rich in history where emperor Franz Joseph I and Elizabeth of Austria-Hungary stayed among the last illustrious guests. With Aleia and Zachary we met via Skype when we talked about the various aspects of their escape:The villa, their getting ready, the flowers, the romantic style they wished for the entire shooting . They chose a very natural and romantic style perfect for the location. The palette focused on the different nuances of powder pink, white and silver. In all the floral creations the peony has been at the center of attention. The ceremony with a few close friends and family took place in the garden of the villa overlooking the estate’s vineyards. A floral touch for the two green wood benches and for the vintage wrought iron chairs. Under the arcade of the villa, for dinner, the imperial table was set up with details that the spouses chose favouring their taste: antique pink tablecloth , gold and green glass cups and gold cutlery. In the center the cup in transparent glass with a floral creation, perfect for the mise en place, where the peonies were the undisputed queens.
The romantic session was totally shot on the surround of this cosy and precious villa .
