With guests joining them from all over the world, Lauren and Matteo wanted to throw a classically Italian wedding to highlight their favorite parts of the romantic country. Their traditional church ceremony in the exquisite Chiesa di San Gaetano was followed by an intimate garden portrait session with Barbara Zanon Photography and an elegant reception at Ca’ Marcello. If you were looking for an excuse to say ‘”I do” in Italy, Lauren and Matteo’s wedding makes a beautiful argument to do so!

Since we had friends and family coming from all over the world, we wanted the wedding to be classically Italian. I wanted to make sure that we had art-filled, historical locations that would be hard to find in my home state of Michigan.

We chose the Church of San Gaetano in the historic center of Padova. In my first year in Padova, I walked by that church what felt like 1000 times and never went inside. Once we finally went in, we knew it was perfect – big enough to hold everyone, but still feel intimate and just covered in art! The vaulted, affresco-covered ceiling was the icing on the cake. I think the best part of this church was hearing all of our Italian friends comment on how beautiful it was and that they too, had never been inside before!
