Intimate wedding Rome

An intimate wedding in Rome: Sara and Shane

The intimate wedding in Rome of Sara and Shane was held on a warm, sunny October day in 2019.

The lovely wedding couple made all their way from Utah to celebrate their destination wedding with just their dearest ones.

But although on a smaller scale, nothing was missing from this intimate wedding in Rome and all the little details were carefully planned by Dolce Vita Weddings.

The bride looked absolutely ravishing: the bridal dress, the bridal shoes, the lace wedding veil, the hairdo, the make-up, the jewellery, the romantic bridal bouquet. Everything was simply perfect. And well, the groom was very elegant too, in his suit with cuff links and his last name’s initial on.

The wedding ceremony of this intimate wedding in Rome was celebrated at the Campidoglio, the main site for civil weddings in Rome, while the harp was playing the couple’s favourite tunes. Rose petals were thrown at the exit to greet the newlyweds, before they headed off for their romantic wedding photoshoot around Rome in an old-style Rolls Royce.

In the meantime, the guests made their way to the reception venue where Prosecco, canapés and amazing views of the Eternal City where waiting for them on the rooftop of a luxury hotel, the perfect reception location for an intimate wedding in Rome.

No matter how small, an intimate wedding in Rome deserves beautiful flower arrangements and the bride took Dolce Vita Weddings’ suggestion for a mix of tall Martini cups and lower crystal vases with cream and soft pink roses, and lots of candles to create a warm atmosphere.

A first dance and a lovely wedding cake where the final touches for this intimate wedding, where nothing was left to chance.

Such a heartfelt destination wedding with some truly lovely and genuine people I was so happy to meet.
