A Vintage Rock n Roll Italian Wedding: Alice & Matteo

January 4, 2012

Oh baby I’m literally dying over Alice & Matteo’s Italian wedding. Everything is so beautiful and the photographs by Martino Vincenzi leave me weak at the knees.

“Since my husband proposed me last year, I knew that my wedding would have been not a classical italian wedding,” Alice wrote to me. “So, when I found your wedding blog, it was like a mirage in the desert! You have been my bible, THANK YOU!!”

The wedding was held at Malga Riondera, a farm in Ala di Trento, Italy. “We wanted to have the wedding totally immersed in nature and when we found this place (where no marriage had ever been celebrated) we realized that everything would be just wonderful,” Alice continued. “We were married under a beautiful huge ancient oak, with violins playing one of my favourite song (Staralfur by Sigur Ros). It was like a dream!”

“During the planning I gently forced all my best friends to help me to make everything! It has been so tough, but worthwhile. We made all the cupcakes two days before the wedding, and the morning of the celebration we were still preparing and fixing stuff!”

“We don’t like rings but we love tattoos, so we decided that for our special day, instead of exchanging rings we would have a significant tattoo done on our ring fingers, since we had the fortune that one of our invited friends was also our tattooer. So now, when people ask me to show them my wedding ring, I indicate my beatiful little red star on my finger!”

“Rock n Roll is a state of mind!” the bride concluded. “Our wedding theme was vintage Rock n Roll as I I am extremely Rock n Roll with all my body and soul and I love all that is vintage. I love riding my Vespa and dressing like a pin up!”

Thank you so much to Alice & Matteo and their fabulous photographer Martino for sharing this beautiful wedding with us today.
