Japanese-studies majors Kathy and Deas quickly became college sweethearts before moving to Japan to teach. It was in Japan that their love blossomed and Deas proposed! Because Japanese culture has played such an important role in their lives and relationship, Kathy and Deas did an elegant Japanese theme for their (rainy day!) wedding. Cherry blossoms accentuated pale pink centerpieces on tables marked with woodcuts featuring English on one side and Japanese on the other. The bride and groom sat beneath their own specially woodcut Mrs./Mr. signs, which also featured traditional Japanese symbols, and guests dined with bamboo cutlery and plates. The cake, also featuring a delicate cherry blossom motif, was topped with traditional Japanese dolls, and traditional Japanese engagement origami decorated tables. Kathy's girls carried fans down the aisle in place of bouquets, and perhaps the sweetest detail of the wedding (other than Kathy's hot pink wedding rain boots) was the wall hanging of classic Japanese origami cranes... made by Kathy's students as a farewell present!
I cant exactly put my finger on it, but there is just something about Italian weddings that I am so incredibly drawn to! They are inherently elegant, sophisticated & refined, while still maintaining the perfect dash of sexiness. The venues & views at each unique affair always come stock with romance on high. The wedding of Paula Tavira & Louis Oliveira is not an exception, but the very definition of a stunning luxury wedding. Wanting to emphasize crystal detailing & stunning floral decorations, Paula worked with Franci's Flowers Wedding Design to make her vision come true. The gorgeous grounds & roof top views of Via La Vedetta paved the way for a swoon worthy day that is deserving of many a repin on Pinterest!
