An inside look at what it is like when a Stylist/Floral Designer plans her own wedding!

From Kristina, the bride (and one half of the creative team of Blue + Ivory):
Andy proposed to me during a very special journey – on top of a volcano – surrounded by an insanely beautiful landscape and in the midst of clouds. The wild and natural beauty of this place has just blown my mind. The color palette, textures and softly, moving clouds were simply the perfect source of inspiration. And our passion for adventures, music and good food made it super easy for us to transform all of our shared moments to a very personal and magical fete – our wedding.

We chose to marry in Italy because of the personal connection we both share for this beautiful country. Locanda Rosa Rosae, our wedding venue, is a tastefully renovated ancient mill, which is secretly nestled between rolling hills framed by the Dolomites in the North and the Gulf of Venice in the South. Owners Elisabetta and Silvio have made their unique and artistic vision come to life here in every corner. Apart from its raw beauty, this place offers the most flavorful food and wine far and wide.

Keeping it very intimate and personal was our greatest intention and all of our family and friends were involved in a meaningful and subtle way. Starting with my finest silk dress (like a fluffy cloud) created by my very talented and oldest friend, to the carefully sewed and dyed napkins made by my mother and ending with the most personal ceremony held by our brothers and my mother in law.

The biggest thanks, however, go to Lena, my friend, partner in crime and the other half of Blue + Ivory. Thank you so much for your inspiring mind, fearless manner and committed nature. I’m so grateful for your dedication and toil.
