A Rome, Italy Elopement
Together from the day they met, eight years ago, sweethearts Nadine and Philip eloped for a destination wedding in Italy, a country long admired for its romance and enchanting ancient cities. Rome, although, far from home feel close to Nadine’s heart and was a perfect venue for her desired “old glamour” theme. Within the bustle of the country’s capital, the couple found a lush garden with a circular stone pillared stage to say their vows. A long sleeve white form-fitting dress gave Nadine that sought after classic look.
Nadine has always admired black and white films from previous eras featuring “cool leading men and elegant actresses” especially Sophia Loren and Monica Bellucci for their timeless beauty and sophistication. For her wedding day in Rome, Nadine says; “I wanted to fulfill my childhood fantasy of being an actress in that time period by taking glamorous pictures with the leading man of my life in a country where my idols grew up in.” So after their intimate ceremony the couple took a newly wed tour of the city with their photographer Rochelle Cheever. Together they rode around the Eternal City to be photographed at its most famed sites and charming neighborhoods. They had fun making her childhood dream a reality by posing in front of fountains, and atop ancient bridges before taking the final shot at the Coliseum as the sun set.
