I love winter wedding, still too little considered in our Verona area and I really want to decline this Hygge mood in the wedding world.
As I say in my diary (read here) Hygge [HU-GAH] is part of Danish culture and is a term that means “being with loved ones in an intimate, serene and welcoming atmosphere”. Hygge more than a style is an emotional state.
The idea is to create an intimate and comfortable atmosphere for the wedding day to spend time with family and friends trying to make everyone feel at ease.
From here the project of the symbolic marriage of Megan and Nathan was developed and thanks to them I discovered to have a very hyggelig soul.
This adventure began, as often happens in the weddings organization , from the search for the location. Having already defined the style and theme above all, we needed the right location. The location was definitely a key element for the type of wedding we had in mind and Tenuta Le Cave in Tregnago, Verona, was perfect. In Verona and surroundings there are many wedding venues, but the characteristics that should have been were clear: we needed a location with the idea of home, well furnished, with a Nordic style and a fundamental element: the fireplace.
Immersed in the lands of Amarone, Tenuta Le Cave is a charming natural terrace from which it enjoys a breathtaking view. Overlooking the easternmost valley of the Valpolicella D.O.C. and at the boundaries of the Lessinia Natural Park, the estate develops in a small village, characterized by an architecture deeply inspired by this land and which expertly fuses the ancient stones of Lessinia to Italian art and culture. You can mainly distinguish in the Main House, where the symbolic ceremony was held in front of the fireplace and Villa Macallè, located about 500 m from the main building, immersed in the quiet of the vineyards and at the edge of the woods.
The Villa is a detached house with three wonderful Suites. A perfect place for a very intimate wedding. A place to stay a few days and share the common areas, cook together, chat on the sofas, like a family.
Megan, the bride was prepared in the Lion Suite characterized by the large window overlooking the valley, flooded with natural light even in winter. Throughout the Antiquity and design estate, they are fused in an exemplary way, creating unique and highly sought-after details.
Megan’s wedding dress had to be white, slipped, with soft lines, with lace and precious details. The Giusy dress, from the Atelier Emè 2018 collection, which they proposed in Atelier in Verona, fully embodied all these elements and had an extra detail in the long, very long, sleeves in tulle (top trend of wedding dresses 2018) . Giusy is in fact a tulle dress all embroidered with micro sequins in transparency with important hood sleeves that create a long train of tulle.
Nathan, the groom has prepared himself in the Horse Suite which, inspired by the passion for horses, has an obstacle like a bed headboard and a beautiful view of the forest. Nathan did not want to be the classic groom in a suit and tie and was advised by choosing clothes from the Falconeri collection. We wanted something more enveloping and soft choosing for him a warm turtleneck in Alabaster ultrasoft cashmere under a blue navy tweed jacket. The dress code for this type of wedding is loungewear, comfortable but with style.
Every element has been studied in every detail: the invitations, the menus, the wooden place cards have been handcrafted by the talented calligraphy Martina di Bianchi Weddings and the original Nadir wedding rings in red gold, also handmade by Luca di My Golden Age, as well as Megan’s engagement ring with white opal and diamonds. To the already rich and complete furnishing of the Villa we only wanted to add plaids and cushions in cashmere made of Falconeri Home.
