"Under the Tuscan Sun: An Intimate Wedding at Castello di Casole" byALEXANDRA MACON
I was ecstatic reading my client Meg Scanlon's Italian wedding feature on Vogue.com. Along with her breathtaking photos of her magical wedding weekend were photos of Cloud Hunter's silk eye masks and robes. What a dream! Megan came to me with the adorable idea of adding "Ciao Bella" on CH's custom silk eye-masks. We also created monogramed French Blue silk robes, and her an ivory silk robe, all trimmed with ivory Venetian lace. It is always an honor working with brides-to-be creating special pieces like these for her loved ones for her special day! Thank you Megan for your kind works about Cloud Hunter's products, and Alexandra for a beautiful article and feature.
Below are the photos of Cloud Hunter products and my personal favorite from the photo gallery! Check out the full article and all photos here.
"Designing the wedding suite was my favorite part of the wedding-planning process. I had the best time with Emily Irwin from Paper Plane Paperie and Kara Anne Beatrous of Kara Anne Paper. They are both so talented, and I love the custom illustrations and monogram that Kara Anne created for us. The whimsical drawings added excitement for our guests’ upcoming trips to Italy, and the invitations really set the tone for the wedding."
"I wore a green Jason Wu slip dress to the rehearsal dinner. I wanted to wear color and have my hair down to contrast with what I would be wearing the next day. I loved that the green of my dress perfectly matched the wedding theme!"
"Friday morning, the bridal party had an early wake-up call for a hot-air balloon ride together. It was such a fun morning and special way to kick off our wedding weekend with our bridesmaids, groomsmen, and significant others to show our thanks for being a part of our wedding weekend."
"Having mimosas with my girls while getting ready. My engagement ring has significant sentimental meaning to me since it once belonged to my grandmother, with whom I was extremely close. She unfortunately could not attend the wedding due to her poor health and it being too far to travel. The hardest part about having a destination wedding was not having her there. Wearing her ring that weekend—and every day—makes me feel like I always have a part of her with me. I also kept her lace handkerchief with me all night—my something old."
"I gave my bridesmaids these adorable robes and eye masks from Cloud Hunter for the wedding weekend. The Los Angeles–based designer was so fun to work with and we customized these pieces for the wedding by adding “Ciao Bella” on the eye mask and embroidering the girls’ initials inside of their robes."
"A moment of laughter with my bridesmaids. I’m so fortunate to have such amazing women in my life, and I’ll always cherish having them here with me in this moment."
"My bridesmaids helping me into my dress."
"Our green Jaguar getaway car decorated with white and green florals."
"My bridesmaid Kendall who is even more beautiful on the inside! I loved the Grace Kelly–inspired beauty she had for the wedding."
"The entrance to the tent featured seating areas with matching fountains on each side. I loved how Vincenzo cascaded flowers around the fountain and it was only when you got up close that you could see the water streaming."
"My stylish grandmother! She was our only grandparent who was able to travel to Italy, and it was so special to have her there. Her nickname is “Dancing Queen,” and true to her reputation, she was one of the last people to leave the dance floor!"
