Sunday wedding.

On Sunday I went to my cousin's wedding. It was an evening wedding and the reception was held at Villa di Fiorano on the via Appia Antica.
It was a lovely and fun event, with a beautiful backdrop.
Here's my outfit:



The dress is a Sandro Ferrone I had tailored, the d├ęco headpiece was from Particolari. The bride asked people to wear something on their head, be it a hat or another kind of headpiece.
Earrings and necklace are so old I don't even remember where I bought them. It was when I was living in the US.
The fountain in the back was originally for horses to go drink water, then was modified to end in this beautiful swimming pool.

Here's a picture in the City Hall, with shoes and clutch:


Shoes are Ralph Lauren and clutch is from a random store.The bust is from some noble woman who lived in beautiful Palazzo Chigi, in Ariccia, where they were married. It was also the set for Il Gattopardo, the movie directed my Luchino Visconti, with Burt Lancaster, Alain Delon and Claudia Cardinale.

Here's a detail of the shoes. They were very comfortable even for dancing!





And here's a picture with husband and the beautiful couple:


Men are lucky: husband wore his wedding suit, minus the vest and with another tie. The bride was beautiful: from the dress to the hair and makeup, everything was perfect.

Here's a random picture I took at the reception:


I love the pine trees of the Appia Antica, they have something magic...

By the way, on Sunday it was also my first wedding anniversary! Husband surprised me with a beautiful ring. 

Tomorrow we are leaving for another wedding, this time in Agropoli, south of Naples. I am trying to get my suitcase ready, and hope we'll be able to go to the beach there, at least for a couple of hours.
