What a sweet and adorable couple Emily and John are! Even though they were both students at Wake Forest University, they did not meet one another until studying abroad in Sicily. After leaving Sicily, John wrote to Emily everyday for a month in a journal, then later sent the journal to her. SO romantic!!
Emily and John were married at the Basilica of St. Lawrence, and Emily looked breathtaking in her Monique Lhullier dress. I loved this dress because the tulle skirt was detachable, so she looked like she was wearing a totally different dress at the reception.
Since they met in Sicily and it was a place that was dear to both of their hearts, we made sure it was sprinkled throughout the wedding reception. Each table was named after a place that John and Emily visited, plus they included pictures they took when they were there. An assortment of gelato was served to the guests along with the wedding cake, and Limoncellos were given as favors. Sweet peas, which are native to Sicily, were painted on to each invitation by the amazing Dana with A Fine Line Studio, and they were included in her bouquet. Stacey with The Bloom Room was responsible for the beautiful flowers…she never ceases to amaze me with her art! And a big thank you to Abigail Seymour, who I adore working with, for these stunning photos…enjoy!
