A Dreamy White and Crystal Wedding in Florence, Italy by Franci’s Flowers

Written by    Last updated: September 3, 2012

The romantic city of Florence always held a special place in the couple’s hearts – it was the place where they got engaged, and they knew one day they would get married there as well. Choosing a simple yet elegant theme of white and crystal, they had a small ceremony and reception surrounded by their loved ones, beautifully designed by Franci’s Flowers Wedding Design.

Our ceremony was… Florence is place we love and we wanted an elegant, sophisticated and refined wedding. We loved the amazing view on town, also the outdoor ceremony in the gorgeous Italian garden was exactly what we were dreaming of. The ceremony was simply amazing, since my arrival with my father in the carriage and during my daughter’s speech I couldn’t stop crying!
