It’s hard to imagine a more romantic place to get married than Tuscany, and Kristina and Daniel’s gorgeous wedding at the grand Villa Passerini is yet another example why! We’re totally obsessed with the luxurious yet down-to-Earth dynamic the couple created with the expert help of event planner Hans Schuster. The couple focused on creating a rich, comfortable experience for their family and friends without overwhelming them with too many details, and we think they nailed it. On one hand, you have the bride who rocked not just one but two incredible custom gowns from the IamYours Signature Collection. On the other hand, you have minimal décor that centered around candles and olive branches, which created a romantic Italian boho vibe. Kreativ Wedding definitely pulled out all the stops to capture every beautiful moment of this lovely wedding!
Kristina and Daniel
Villa Passerini, Cortona, Italy
Rather than give favors to all the guests, Kristina gave her bridesmaids, mother, and sisters wedding boxes with a handwritten letter, a Jenny Yoo robe for getting ready, and some smaller gifts.
Daniel kept it a little simpler and gave his groomsmen, who traveled a long way to celebrate this special day, individually engraved silver pocket flasks with personal notes thanking them for celebrating the best party of Daniel’s life with him.
When we started planning our wedding, it quickly became clear that we were looking for a laid-back place, something rustic yet beautiful, something where we could have a beautiful celebration in the garden without being too fancy or too formal. We wanted everyone to feel comfortable. When we walked through the gates of Villa Passerini, saw the beautiful nature, the vines on the small hills, the old fire water pond, the stables and the stunning villa with the amazing Limonaia and its frescos, we were just blown away. Villa Passerini was the perfect place for us, combining luxury and elegance with understatement and coziness.
From the groom: The most memorable part was seeing Kristina for the first time walking down the aisle with her sisters, her mum, and her bridesmaids right behind her. She was just breathtaking. I always thought I was going to be as cool as a cucumber standing in front of all of our guests with my best men next to me, but when I heard the first song, the violins playing, and Kristina in the most amazing dress I’ve ever seen, I had tears in my eyes.
From the bride: For me, it was the exact same moment: when I saw Daniel standing there in his beautiful tux, and when I saw how many of our dearest friends took on the long journey just to celebrate with us on this special day. I felt super nervous yet absolutely happy to marry the man of my dreams and the love of my life!
Kristina’s two wedding dresses were designed and hand-made at IamYours in Dusseldorf. The fashion designers and master tailors at IamYours did an amazing job transferring Kristina’s vision for two very unique and absolutely stunning wedding gowns into reality.
