Although so popular in Italy, few outsiders know the beauty of Versilia. Famous for its hills and its cypresses, Tuscany also offers couples a beautiful coastline, ideal for romantic honeymoons or, as in the case of Paola and Nick, perfect for beach weddings in Italy.
Although the sea is not that great, Forte dei Marmi and Pietrasanta are the destination of hundreds of families from North and Central Italy for summer holidays. One of the many reasons that makes Versilia popular since the 60s is the fantastic atmosphere you can feel there. After their first visit, even Paola and Nick were amazed by this corner of Tuscany.
Paola and Nick chose the Beach Club in Forte dei Marmi for the planning their beach club wedding in Italy. This beautiful beach resort looks perfect for fairytale weddings. The resort is located directly on the beach. Inside there are a swimming pool, a popular and award-winning restaurant and giant dance floor. But above all, plenty of space and the opportunity to shape the place according to the needs of the couple.
The Beach Club can hold more than 300 people. All areas, both on the sand and on the travertine floor, can be fitted with sofas, tables and chairs; the staff, numerous and friendly, is always available for any request. The management is always at the service of couples up until late night.
The Jewish ceremony was held on the beach, facing the sea, just before sunset. A white gazebo adorned with white and purple orchids, offered shelter from the sun to the newlyweds and the wedding party. A true wonder. Many guests witnessed a moving ceremony, before enjoying delicious cocktails and snacks of raw seafood.
The wedding photos were taken on the beach. A few but intense minutes, to give them intimate images for their photo book. Only the couple and the photographer, while the sun went down on the water dyeing everything in red and orange. The perfect atmosphere for portraits of a beautiful happy couple in love.
Before the dinner and speeches, newlyweds and guests wildly danced the traditional Jewish wedding dances. The band played on the big stage throughout dinner, which was held outdoors, under the stars. The day was very hot and humid and, also for that, guests stayed until late night to celebrate Paola and Nick’s wedding.
Paola’s wedding dress had a mermaid shape with sweetheart neckline, perfect to highlight the forms of the beautiful bride. The simple design was enhanced by the embroidered fabric and veil that Paola wore for the ceremony.
Nick, elegant in his classic suit, opted for a young, lively color, certainly very suitable for a beach ceremony: an ice-blue modern cut that fitted him like a glove. Moccasins and casual accessories made the groom elegantly unconventional.
Our best wishes to Paola and Nick, who have been appreciated for their elegance and their courtesy throughout the planning of the event. I hope to meet them again soon, perhaps in Italy, to continue the festivities!
