Before the wedding, Mei wore her mother’s Kimono and she refreshed herself in the crystal clear lake water. The Island, a mixture between nature and tradition, was the setting through that unforgettable day.
The first encounter between Mei and Collin was amongst the ruins of the island, a few steps away from the location chosen for the ceremony. Set inside the crypt, a semicircle was created by greenery and flowers, candles and light blue silk. A semicircle around the newlywed symbolizing an embrace around them.
The reception tables were set up inside the ruins. It created an elegant, but at the same time new, style. A light, long tablecloth glided over the stones, the mise en place was filled with pewter dishes and glasses and vintage goods from Bottega di Corte. Placeholders with fabric, hand-painted calligraphy by Poeticalligraphy, hand-dyed napkins were all included with many candlesticks and lighted candles.
