Julie & Chad: Wedding at Montelucia

Candlelight. Avant garde. Attention to detail. Bride-produced. This wedding had such a timeless and unique feeling to it, from all the carefully thought out details (by Julie) to the cocktail party-themed reception complete with a Gelatto station, cigar bar and dueling pianists.  I wanted to share so many of these elements story-board style, because I think they help to convey the feeling of Julie and Chad’s wedding at Montelucia last week. I might add that I think Gina at Fiori Florals outdid herself on these feather-adorned bouquets and gorgeous sweeping table centerpieces.

The bar at Montelucia was already quite packed, so we worked around the guests and Julie and Chad got sort of lost in each other, which I loved.

Inside the dark bar.

Their ceremony and reception were both by candlelight only… very romantic
