An Orange themed wedding between the city and countryside
Elisa and Andrea are a lovely couple living and working in Turin, main city of Piemonte region we already told you about in some of our posts.
Most of the people know it to be a gray industrial city but this is very far from the truth!
It is an elegant charming and royal city being the headquarter of former Italian Royal family and first capital of Italian country back in 1861.
This year, 2011, we are celebrating the 150 years anniversary of Italian Country as single nation and sign of this can be seen everywhere in Italy especially in the city that marked the history of the country: city of Turin is among these places.
In occasion of this big event the city is full of Italian flags and has many exhibitions to see.
In Palazzo Madama – Queen’s palace – in the center of the city by the Savoy Castle you can admire the full reconstruction of the first parliament of 1861.
It is just there that Elisa and Andrea decided to get married.
Civil ceremonies in Palazzo Madama are allowed by the town hall of Torino just like the one in Teatro Carignano we spoke about in a previous post.
A perfect setting for a ceremony, for pictures.
Just have a look to the wonderful staircase framing the arrival of the bride!
After the ceremony Elisa and Andrea opted for a real country wedding!
They moved with all guests to a local Agriturismo in the countryside just about 30 minutes drive from the city a real oasis far from the busy roads of Turin.
The choice was great an ancient Casale with a wide green space and a delicious Piemonte cuisine and great offer of wines.
Elisa opted for an orange themed wedding that started from her…shoes!
The flowers decorations were all made with orange lilium and some peach roses.
Names cards, favors, menu and even a the table plan was orange matching the shapes of the flowers and the style of the venue with their lovely iron chairs and canopy where the dinner was served!
A huge white and orange wedding cake with sugar almonds tasting closed the dinner.
Friends of the couple where the DJs for the night for a great party that went on until very late at night.
This is what we call a great day!
Congratulations Elisa and Andrea!
