Colorful Destination Micro Wedding In Rome

September 28, 2021 | kailey

When in Rome, couples should exchange magical “I do’s” like Catherine and James. This couple wanted a destination micro wedding that was small in size without having to sacrifice special moments, loved-ones involvement, and show stopping decor. Which was all made possible with the help of Junebug member Il Mio Matrimonio and a talented team of local vendors

The castle venue—Castello San Giorgio Maccarese—was a timeless setting that made this couple look like royalty. Taking full advantage of the lavish Italian gardens, these love birds exchanged vows in front of towering secret garden gates. To enhance the existing foliage, the gates were lined with colorful asymmetrical floral arrangements by Non Solo Rose. The same show-stopping florals that dressed the reception tables and complemented the overhanging, outdoor chandelier—a truly unique wedding decor detail. Photographer Latitudine 41 captured every cherished moment from the hand-written vows to the flower petal send off. If you’re dreaming of jet-setting off to your own dream wedding destination, get your hearts ready. These inspo-rich photos won’t disappoint.

The Wedding:
