Style Brief – Villa Cetinale autumn wedding

Style Brief - SposiamoVi

Brooke & Umut are classic New Yorkers – their style is both uptown and downtown. They have super sophisticated taste, from food and wine to fashion, art and design. Their wedding subtly reflects this cultural sensitivity by incorporating touches of their favorite things, while remaining elegant and chic. Here’s how we achieved the perfect style!


Two large gold lanterns on columns are placed on each side of the entrance gate. A light welcome drink is served in front of the villa – the bar is decorated with as simple green garland.

Imagine a slightly softer color palette for the ceremony, with rustic seating, soft natural flowers and petals lining the aisle where the bride will walk under the trees towards the guests. Vintage chandeliers hang along the center of the tree aisle walkway..

It’s time to mingle, sip and nibble. Old-fashioned lawn games and other interactive areas like a photo booth and guest book entertain guests. Cozy lounge areas are perfect for those looking to relax and enjoy the atmosphere…and their cocktail.

The wooden bar table is decorated with a wood table and ruby runners plus vases of wild, organic flowers. Seating chart for a long table was calligraphed on a mirror.

For a unique statement that complements the villa and surroundings, we suggested rustic wood tables with a rich, silk runner,  and bright organic flowers, incorporating local seasonal fruits like persimmons and of course lots of candles.

A long table positioned between the cypress trees in a crystal tent, crystal chandeliers hang over the full length of the table.

A reclained wood table with a rich, wide, velvet runner is a study in contrasts. Wild, natural, colorful flowers and fruit in low gold and crystal urns in different heights with gold and glass candleholders & votives. Pretty bread plates, classic gold rimmed white dinner plates, bright silk runner lays asymmetrically on the table, gold plated cutlery, bright napkins
