Lights, lace and a one shoulder wedding dress have got us weak at the knees at this forest elopement. I mean, we love romantic candlelight, but the fairy and festoon light installations have taken mood lighting to a whole new level, and we're here for it! We also love the fresh and dried flowers arrangements filling the intimate ceremony and reception. And how doesn't love a bride with flowers in her hair? We certainly do!

Lace one shoulder wedding dress for an outdoor intimate elopement in a forest with dried flowers and festoon lights.

The elopement of Fabrizia and Victor in the middle of a small forest could not have been more perfect. It was incredibly stylish and glamorous, warm and over the top mixed with a minimalistic luxurious vibe.

The gentle breeze of a late September Sunday joined these two lovely souls in the magnificent surroundings of the wild forest of Casali Santa Brigida. Fabrizia and Victor chose wilderness and nature, absolutely in line with their creative souls. They went for a warm, orange and beige-hues earth-tones based palette both for the table and the stunning floral design. In order to be even more conscious and protective of the surrounding nature, and with an eco-sustainable aim, the compositions have not used any sponges.


Under the floral half-arch, Victor waited for his beautiful bride who arrived wearing an original one shoulder wedding dress, gorgeous rings and a glowy makeup that also highlighted her tattoos with some sparkle on the shoulders making Fabrizia even more glamorous. Both were radiant, under the last rays of light of the day: their love was pure, wild and some the most rad ones ever witnessed. Their connection was made of small touches, quick glances and extreme laughs. They said their vows holding hands and looking deeply into each other’s eyes, holding down the look at times because of all the emotions.

Not only is the one shoulder wedding dress unique, but how about that magical setting filled with lights?

After the short intimate ceremony, they took place at the gorgeous table under the most amazing light scenery you could imagine. Bulbs of different sizes were hanging from above, creating a warm and magical nook. All different floral compositions adorned the table prepared with care, which included natural and organic plates and unconventionally mixed glassware. Could an elopement be more prestigious and unique?
