Bianca and Francesco are fashion models living in Milan, Italy. Once upon a time, their eyes met at a Linkin Park concert but never thought they’d see each other again in such a big city. As if dictated by destiny, they saw each other again at a casting. A casting at which they are auditioning for the role of two strangers who met each other in an elevator, which is very similar to their real life story.
From there, Bianca was sure that this guy was the one for her. Six years later, they got married in Francesco’s home region Marche, Italy. This is where Francesco’s family still lives, where he grew up on a beautiful Italian farm, with vast lands and where many fruits and vegetables are grown.
One of the gifts that the happy couple presented to their guests was bottles of olive oil made and bottled by Francesco's parents with love.
Bianca is half Italian and half Brazilian, she grew up in Brazil and loves living a carefree life by the beach. The pool at Villa La Cerbara Relais brings back a little Brazilian beach memory for Bianca in the Italian countryside. The couple designed every detail of their wedding with their wedding planner and designer Oana. Each detail had significant meaning to their story together and their lives as individuals.
The guests that attended had a set of colors to choose from. It was a beautiful crowd filled with Italy’s biggest and most beautiful models and TV celebrities. Bencivenga Altasartoria styled them with gorgeous gowns and tuxedoes, a designer house born in Italy 70 years ago in 1940. Bianca’s hair and makeup were done by Italy’s celebrity makeup artist Alessia Bee, who also became a friend of Bianca after meeting in the fashion industry.
Trynh of Trynh Photography met the couple at an editorial shoot six years ago, when they had only been dating for six months. She saw that they had found true love and one day would end up married. At the time she jokingly said «I’ll shoot your wedding», and Francesco laughed of course. Trynh watched their relationship grow and blossom over the years, so it was special for her to capture their full story. Trynh was assisted by French photographer Laurie Lise who came from Paris, and Ukrainian photographer Ksenia Palchyk who recently moved from Ukraine to Italy.
Oana the event planner described the meaning of the couple’s wedding theme – «I associated the moon and the oak tree to Francesco and Bianca after meeting them several times and got to know them better. I associated Bianca with the Moon as it represents her personality, spirituality and mystic soul and Francesco with the oak tree as it has deep roots in the ground and strong family ties with its place of birth.»
Along with many other wonderful vendors on the list, the team harmoniously created a dream day for the couple. Bianca and Francesco were so happy on their wedding day, everything turned out perfectly, according to the new Mrs. Brunetti.
