featured From the knot: Real Weddings

We love this glamorous, garden-inspired destination wedding. Amanda Perna (28 and a fashion designer) and Solomon Strul (28 and a TV commercial producer) had an intimate wedding abroad at Four Seasons Hotel Firenze in Firenze, Italy. They hired Vincenzo Dascanio to create the stunning floral arrangements, which were the focal point of their wedding decor. Amanda and Solomon were married in the garden under a crystal chandelier that hung from a wedding arch covered in fragrant olive branches and pink roses. Amanda's bouquet consisted of a similar arrangement of roses and olive leaves.....

A glamourous garden destination affair

The reception, which took place in a ballroom that was once a convent, featured ornate crystal chandeliers with white flowers hanging from them to create an ethereal garden look. Beneath the hanging flowers, the long dining table was lined with rows of mercury-glass candleholders that cast a romantic glow in the hall. The candleholders were also wrapped with flowers and olive leaves. Even the cake was rich with cascading cake flowers. Amanda modified a mermaid-style Lazaro gown for her wedding dress, and she created a colorful bow tie for Solomon to wear with his black tuxedo.
