Katie and Ryan’s breath-taking Italian villa-themed, Sassi wedding leaves us dreaming of the Amalfi Coast! Having originally met their first week of college at Northern Arizona University, the couple dated for twelve years and were completely inseparable! For Katie and Ryan, it was truly fate that brought them together. When it came time to pop the question, Ryan proposed by spelling out “Will you marry me?” in lush rose petals. Katie said yes, and the two began planning out the details of their wedding together as they decided on an engagement length of just under a year.
Captured by Ryan Nicole Photography, this stunning wedding incorporates beautiful elements in rich shades of burgundy and blush with lush greenery for contrast. To balance out the palette, soft white was utilized to create a formal affair. The ceremony was held at a grandiose church so that the couple could celebrate their marriage with the same traditions that their parent had. Their siblings and parents were able to participate by offering gifts and readings. Everyone then headed over to Sassi for a cocktail hour as the couple got to spend some alone time together. Scrumptious food at the reception was catered by Sassi, and after dinner, guests headed into the photo booth to take awesome pictures. Friends and family went home with frames for their photos, and the couple retired to their suite. As the perfect conclusion to their Sassi wedding, Katie and Ryan plan to honeymoon in Italy to visit Rome, Venice, Capri, and Florence.
