Giulia and Bryan met on the streets of Florence, Italy in 2016. Giulia is from Italy and Wales and Bryan was born in San Francisco and raised in the East bay of northern California. The couples now lives near the sunny beaches of Fort Lauderdale in Florida. Bryan is a Yacht Captain that travels the Caribbean, Bahamas and Mediterranean (that's how they met in Italy) and Giulia is a Fashion Designer and Yoga Instructor.
San Francisco is Bryan’s Home and Giulia had never been to California before so this was a great opportunity to see beautiful California and get married at the same time. The couple has 20 close family and friends present at their low key San Francisco Town Hall wedding, which was photographed by Nicole Caldwell.
Giulia fell in love with Paola Carolina's designs when wandering through the streets of Gracia, Barcelona. "This was the only boutique where I tried anything on - and I was sold at the first dress I tried on! Months later I ordered the separates I wanted and Paola made them to fit me perfectly without a second fitting. Her pieces are beautiful, unique and high quality". Giulia's blue velvet peep toe heels were also made by Spanish brand - Salo Madrid and were made to the brides exact measurements.
The most important aspect of the couples wedding planning, was just to have as many friends and family present to share their love.
Any tips for couples getting married? "Live in the moment. Enjoy each stage of the wedding day and wedding planning. And don't worry!"
