First off, let me tell you that an elegant Villa Aurelia wedding is always a dream!
Federica and Velio picked up Villa Aurelia Gianicolo, a fabulous venue I love for a million reasons. First of all, for the breathtaking view on the Aeternal City. Secondly for its location in the center of Rome, at few steps from Gianicolo Hill, often crowded with many couples who love walking down there hand in hand to spend some nice time together. Last but not least, for its beautiful gardens and halls, which can host elegant events in any period of the year, no matter what the weather and the number of guests.
The ceremony took place in the beautiful Basilica of Saints John and Paul on the Caelian Hill, a beautiful example of Roman architecture dating IV century.
My gorgeous bride got ready in one of the suites of the elegant Hotel Sant’Anselmo, located in front of the homonym Benedictine church. Needless to say that the unique charm and the relaxed atmosphere made it the perfect background where bride and her bridesmaids spent some unforgettable moments together.
When Federica received the romantic heart-shaped box full of red roses by her future husband, she couldn’t help crying of joy.
Actually, when it comes to expressing love, nothing quite matches the charm of red roses. This is precisely why so many grooms-to-be choose to gift a beautiful bouquet of these flowers to their bride to be on the morning of their wedding day. From their deep crimson hues to their luscious petals, there is something undeniably captivating about red roses that embodies the passion that a groom feels towards his soon-to-be wife.
Above all, red roses are also a timeless classic that never goes out of style. As such, they are the perfect choice for weddings of all styles and themes.
