Often enjoy perusing through various blogs and collections for utterly romantic and undeniably whimsical wedding photographs, such as the most recent of Kim and Kanye, and have always dreamed of hosting similar…until The Coveteur’s editorial style photo album from Erica Pelosini and Louis Leeman’s destination wedding in Italy were released and am now entirely reconsidering traditional romance for something more upbeat, daring and edgy as illustrated in Pelosini and Leeman’s recent extravaganza.
Pelosini, Italian stylist and street style extrovert, met Leeman, Dutch shoe designer, at fashion school in Florence, Italy nine years ago and have since married their opposite, yet highly compatible tastes together to form the line, Louis Leeman, a true collaboration of uptown and downtown vibes for the eponymous handmade penny loafers.
The resort style wedding was cast away in majestic Capri where an unfailing sun shed light all weekend long. Cocktails and dinner underneath fragrant lemon trees at Da Paolino, custom designed Mary Katrantzou dresses for the bridal party over a poolside brunch, a ceremony at Certosa di San Giacomo and white balloons that were released after the couple exchanged vows were among the itinerary plans.
There was, literally, a sea of bridesmaids in navy blue Pucci dresses, along with Pelosini, in a custom-made Peter Dundas wedding dress, a true combination of modern elegance and romantic boho which featured a lattice criss-cross neckline trimmed with pompoms and a sensational high-low skirt with a striking asymmetrical train. Pelosini paired her dress with white lace-up Aquazzura sandals and a simple daisy bouquet.
The weekend ended with a late lunch and boat ride at il Riccio Beach Club and no newly weds have ever looked so radiant and madly in love…
