Bella Figura Real Wedding Featured by Italian Wedding Planner

Remember this absolutely breathtaking wedding we shared a while back? This week we were contacted by Patricia and Richard’s wedding planner in Italy to let us know about the wedding being featured on her Italian Lakes Wedding blog. We love all of the behind the scenes info she shared about the event and how their incredible destination wedding weekend came together. Thanks so much for sharing, Valentina!

Bella Figura Real Wedding – Ellie and Kevin

Ellie and Kevin hosted a spectacularly elegant wedding in Toronto last June, an event so breathtaking in its sophistication that we just had to share. From their gorgeous letterpress wedding invitations to the dress to the cake, no detail was forgotten. The best part? Ellie and Kevin assembled an amazing team of wedding professionals and managed to pull off this fabulous event in just six months of planning! Held at St. James Cathedral, Ellie and Kevin were married in a traditional Anglican ceremony with the reception following at Le Royal Meridien King Edward’s Sovereign Ballroom. Using a romantic color palette based on shades of soft white with red accents, Ellie wanted the event to have a simple, understated style and opted for a customized version of our Empire design in blueberry ink with blind debossed accents and gold edge painting. We also printed gorgeous letterpress programs and letterpress menus for this beautiful wedding.

Letterpress real wedding: Patricia & Richard – Pollenzo, Italy – Empire design

The wedding of Patricia & Richard // in Pollenzo, Bra, Italy (a very small town in Piemonte Italy and home to the Slow Food University) // Empire letterpress wedding invitation in emerald green

Our client coordinator Andrea handled the coordination of the save the dates, invitations, and reception pieces for this gorgeous destination wedding. Andrea writes: “Patricia has been one of my biggest joys here at Bella Figura. Since our first contact, each morning I looked forward to sharing snippets of Italian in our emails and learning more about her beautiful wedding in Pollenzo, Italy. Her proposal story is one that I have shared and shared again (I’m sure other Bella staff could retell it better than me at this point) and upon seeing photos of her wedding I teared up. There is no more rewarding feeling than to grow fond of someone while helping them during one of their happiest times, and then finally seeing who they are and getting to peek at such a marvelous day. Words simply cannot express the joy that working here brings.” We talked with Patricia more about her incredible celebration….

What was your inspiration for your wedding?
Rick and I are both of Italian heritage. During the years that we dated, we sometimes talked about a ‘little wedding’ in a hilltop town in Italy somewhere. We traveled together to Milan and Torino, visiting the Lakes Region and Piemonte and fell in love with the region, the food and wine and most importantly the people. We knew it would be a memorable trip for our family and dearest friends.
