Dear beloved couples,
Thousand of kilometres divide us and you have to take a very important decision of choosing your destination wedding planner. Yes, i know it’s difficult to do without meeting the person. So, before we can have a Skype call to meet each other virtually, just a few lines about me. I’m a Tuscan soul since 2002, can’t stop thanking heavens for having “dropped” me in this marvellous land. Also for me the reason of moving to Italy was love :)
I’m completely in love with the wedding planning that I’m involved in since 2011. Your wedding is my wedding so if you choose Mydolcefarniente, you choose a highly professional team. I don’t apply the same fee for every event. I give the opportunity to the couple to choose the most appropriate solution for their dream wedding to come true. We work in a flexible way and offer different solutions unless we find the right option that satisfies your needs. We don’t have restrictions because the only things that counts is to make you happy.
Hear from you soon, Yuliya
Today’s styled shoot from Laura Kelly Photography relies solely on white and green in order to create a minimalist, European-inspired wedding scene. With Toast Events taking care of the styling, Makin’ It Lovely tackling the decor, and Floralia in charge of the sweet floral designs, there’s no way this shoot was going to be anything less than perfection.
From the photographer, Laura Kelly Photography: Elise from Toast Events and I have dreamed of creating images that are European inspired and very minimalist, where each and every detail has been planned to perfection. In addition to creating a shoot that is simple yet ethereal, we have also created a custom olive oil wedding favour DIY element with a free customizable printable by LaFabere, Ottawa’s premier paper designer, that we would love to share with readers. This shoot features something else very unique: live painting during the ceremony and reception. My absolute favourite element in the entire shoot is how Christine’s live painting reflects the hand-drawn background of the invitation suite. For her, it was all about creating something that was inspired but also cohesive, so that the paper goods AND the live canvas creation flowed together.
From LaFabère: To achieve this look, I simply placed the bottle in the centre of the sheet. Then carefully wrap the paper around the object, making sure that it overlaps at the back. You may need to trim or fold the extra length of paper if it’s too long for your object. Next, use transparent tape to secure the sheet. Once that’s in place, fold the paper around the neck of the bottle in the same direction, creating a clean look. Then wrap some string (I used upholstery thread) to add an elegant finishing touch to the bottle.

Your wedding is one of the most important events in your life. It should be full of fun, laughter, and love; so should your photos. My goal is to capture beautiful moments by using a natural, artistic, and light photographic style. I’m passionate about story telling and I seek to document moments big and small—from the moment the bride walks down the aisle to laughter shared among friends—so that your photos will be cherished and shared for generations.
I have covered weddings across the United States and internationally and am a member of the esteemed Wedding Photojournalist Association (WPJA) and Fearless Photographers.
In 2012, I married my inspirational, creative, and loving wife. When I’m not shooting a wedding and traveling, I’m often at home with my wife, playing with our rambunctious corgi.

Romantic, ethereal, and a little bit rustic, today’s wedding from Honey Gem Creative and 3 of Cups Weddings + Events manages to tick off all our boxes in the most beautiful of ways. With burgundy being the primary color focus, with plenty of accents of green through leafy textures, we can’t help but fall in love with all the little details. Congratulations to the happy couple!
