Annalisa & Matteo – A back garden wedding in Bologna

Posted on March 15th, 2013 by Stefania Del Zotto

Hi girls,

Today I’m writing from France, my beloved home place, where I am spending one week doing nothing…or almost…I play my my little girl, chat with my mum, meet my old friends…and write some love stories which I have been waiting to talk about for a while…now it’s the time…

Today I would like to share with you the fab photos of Annalisa and Matteo’s wedding in Bologna taken by Sylvain Le Lepvrier.

What I really like about this wedding, a part from the vintage touch that I simply adore, is the simplicity of a home garden wedding! Yes, the location is the couple’s own garden which was magnificently decorated with flowers, lights and lots of love all around!

Matteo and Annalisa met when they were students at university, during a dinner in a restaurant. Some eyes glances, some words jotted down on pieces of papers, a blue rose and a phone number… And here you are thirteen years later with their fresh, sunny and vintage wedding organized in Bologna!

This is all what Matteo and Annalisa wanted!

From the bride:
I met Matteo during the first year of University in Bologna when we were both 19 years old and today. After 13 years we are not just wife and husband, not just a couple, we are and we have always been best friends.

Matteo proposed during our holiday in Sicily, two years ago, in front of the sea while eating arancini and drinking a glass or red Sicilian wine! We laughed a lot that night, beacause we were so happy!

We planned our wedding in a vintage way, as they used to do in the past: at our home in the countryside. We wanted small lights on the trees, white cages for birds full of candles, old vases full of flowers, good but simple food… and we all did by ourselves, organizing  with our families. The priest married us in the garden, under the sun in a perfect day in the end of June… then the party was full of friends and smiles, dancing until late in the night. It was absolutely the best day of our life.
We are so in love of our wedding …
