The wedding of the year?
Even if you haven't heard of them specifically, I'm sure pictures of this extravagant wedding has popped up on your timeline (and you'll want to follow them now)...
This past weekend Chiara Ferragni, of the popular fashion blog The Blonde Salad, married Italian rapper Federico Leonardo “Fedez” Lucia in an outdoor ceremony at Dimora delle Balze, a secluded 19th-century palazzo in Noto, Italy.
The ceremony took place outside at the estate under a canopy of stunning white roses, hydrangeas and greenery. The whole courtyard looked like something out of a dream.
The bride wore a custom Dior high-necked long-sleeved gown with a modern twist—it actually had a crocheted lace romper as the base layer with a wraparound tulle semi-sheer skirt on top. Her hair was pulled back in a low chignon and adorned with a cathedral-length veil for a style that was pure classic elegance.
“At the beginning, I didn’t want a traditional wedding dress,” Chiara admits. “I felt I wanted more of an evening dress, specifically one that I loved from Maria Grazia Chiuri’s first collection for Dior. [But] after, I met with Maria Grazia Chiuri, who thought we could realize a modern yet classical wedding dress without losing my contemporary identity, and fusing the fact that I am a young Italian woman.”
Chiara later changed into a reception gown, which was also custom Dior. The gown took inspiration from Chiuri’s first collections for Dior—Spring/Summer 2017. Chiara wanted to add a special touch into the gown by putting some of her husbands lyrics (that were inspired by her) on the gown.
After dinner and dancing, Chiara made her final costume change into a mini tulle dress that we are obsessed with! This portion of the night involved a performance by the groom and a custom-made amusement park, complete with a ferris wheel, even more merch, a carousel, and finale fireworks (how amazing?!?).
