Mattia e Florence: A protestant wedding in Taormina
Mattia and Florence, an Italian/French couple living in Switzerland, had been fascinated by Sicily during one of their trips to Italy. They had fallen in love with its natural beauties, historic charm, vibrant colors, wrapping scents and delicacy of Sicilian food and wine tradition. Their dream was to get married in Sicily and, most of all, to make their guests discover everything that had previously made them fall in love with this special island.
So, we decided to suggest them Taormina, one of the most characteristic and representative jewels of Sicilian nature, history, art and culture as their wedding destination in Italy.
The terrace of the Greek theater at Hotel Timeo was the natural setting where they celebrated their protestant rite in French language.
The emotional impact of their event was speechless: the place was decorated with original manzanite and phalaenopsis branches, and it was all about the fascinating history of the Greek Theater, Taormina bay beauty seen from above, her Majesty Mount Etna, zagare scents all around and an electric violin music as a background soundtrack.
The style we created for this wedding was minimal chic. Indeed, we were sure that the natural beauty surrounding us had to be our strength. That’s why we thought to create a personalized logo with the tones of blue and white to be reproduced on all their graphic material and fittings.
When it came about dinnertime, a truly speechless show was awaiting for them and their guests: a panoramic terrace with a breathtaking view overlooking Taormina bay, a dinner made of the most typical and representative products of Sicilian food and wine excellence and, last but not least, dance music to enjoy the dance floor until late at night.
As their wedding guests were from different countries worldwide, we thought the most beautiful gift to gift them was the change to bring back home the typical Sicilian scents and flavors. That’s why we came with the idea of having, as a wedding favor, some personalized creations of lemon, orange or pistache cream, typical of the area.
Mattia and Florence’s wedding was a truly unforgettable and unique experience both for us and for their guests, fully enjoyed in a great and joyful atmosphere.
For this wedding we took care of the following services: location search, catering, bride make up and hairstyle, floral settings, furniture rental, photoshoot.
Beside that, we also arranged: ceremony and party music, paper sets, personalized wedding favors (bomboniere), guest accommodation, guest and spouses transfers.
And, last but not least, we took care of the pre-wedding dinner and the brunch on a beach the day after.
