Beautiful Italian Ladies: Annalisa & Fiona. . .

October 20, 2009

The Shan, a beautiful spray of feathers in coral, has been a popular design with Breeziway clients, including some customizations. An aquamarine version of Shan shown here was paired with a white birdcage veil and worn by a Hawaiian bride this past summer.

A customized version of Shan in champagne was worn, perched aside the bun of a happy dear friend-of-the-bride, Fiona, this August. The bride, Annalisa, wore a custom design of coquile flower with ostrich and Swarovski crystal accents. The major challenge with this piece was the delicate process of matching the light dusty rose silk used as an accent color in her gown, but we succeeded eventually! Annalisa wore her Breeziway design atop a side-swept pony tail; so pretty. Fiona's piece is shown below during its creation and in its final place of honor. Enjoy the beautiful photographs of this lovely wedding in the ancient, northern Italian seaport city of Genova. . . and the radiant smiles!

The happy couple's relationship blossomed while they studied English in college. Fiona is Director of the North American branch of the Italian luxurious linen company, Dea, which is located in Palm Beach, Florida. Annalisa is located with the company's base in Italy and is one of the creative minds behind their stunning designs featuring luxurious Egyptian cotton, linen, lace, jacquard, and embroidery.

I so enjoyed this video tour of Genova. . . I hope to enjoy the sights, smells, sounds, and TASTES of this city and other marvelous locales in Italy someday. . . someday soon. . . . Paul, my love, are you listening? =)

Happy travels to us all. . .
