Halloween Elopement in Italy

I love it when something unusual lands in my inbox, and this unique Halloween elopement in Italy sure did the trick! This is the romantic story of the intimate wedding in Italy of two artists, he was a brilliant comics writer, she was a fascinating and talented Marvel comics drawer with dark arts appetite. They chose to get married in a beautiful Tuscan city on a melancholy October evening. That evening the streets were very crowded due to an international comic fair that was taking place in those days and which saw them as guests as prominent artists in the comics sector.

While outside the people and the cosplayers poured along the cobbled streets of the city, Donny was putting his thoughts together overlooking the terrace of Palazzo Rocchi, from up there he could see all of Piazza di San Michele, including the mighty bell tower of the Cathedral.

The dark bronze bells tolled at 5 pm when the sky began to turn in an enchanting pink color,  Donny covered his face to hide the thrill of seeing Megan in her beautiful dress. As a white cat she reached him on the highest terrace of the city and as the rain began to to make the streets and the lamps shine in the dark light of the sunset, they swore eternal love each other.

What was the inspiration behind your day?

To find inspiration, it was enough for us to follow our common passion for comics and fantasy / dark scenarios. The ceremony would take place on Halloween night in a beautiful Italian city, home to an international comic fair where we were guests.

Let’s talk wedding decor.

We chose to decorate the place of the ceremony with white flowers combined with decorations that were inspired by the theme of human bones and skeletons but with a romantic and playful atmosphere.

What were the florals like in your wedding?

The color palette of the bouquet was white, black and green, among the roses flowers and the eucalyptus there were 3 matching glitter skulls.

How did you both choose your wedding day look?

He wore an elegant total black dress with a pleats with a skeletal hand holding some small white flowers, I wore a very fitted vintage-inspired dress, even the haircut was a short cut with black retro waves.

What was the most anticipated or special moment of your wedding day?

Probably the first look on the terrace of Palazzo Rocchi. It was very exciting for both of us, the view was incredible and Lucca gave us a sunset with indescribable shades. We ended the day with an intimate romantic dinner at Palazzo Orsetti.
