Justyna and Jason’s Destination Wedding in Italy
Going to Italy for Justyna and Jason’s destination wedding actually started with this crazy idea to travel Europe for 6 months! When, I had told Justyna about my plans, she started talking about her dream of a destination wedding in Italy. One thing led to another and we were planning for Italy!
Italy is an amazing place for a Destination Wedding. I loved how Justyna and Jason spent a couple days hanging out at the Villa with family and friends, and made it a huge wedding week. Taking day trip to other cities and really soaking in all that Italy has to offer.
Justyna and Jason’s Italy elopment was one of the highlights of the trip! I knew after their engagement session that they were truly in love and completely smitten with each other! I knew the day would be filled with so much love and emotion. It was more then I could have imagined!
In addition to the amazing couple that Justyna and Jason are, Justyna is also a Wedding Planner from Take A Seat Events. Partnered with Susan Mcleary from Passion Flower Events out of Ann Arbor who also joined us in Italy, the wedding was beautifully planned and designed! Furthermore, It was such a gorgeous day and I know I am sharing way too many photos here, as usual, but I hope you love them!
Finally, Justyna and Jason are such spectacular people, I am so happy to have been a part of their day!

Heather and Steven are a beautiful couple that just had a beautiful wedding―this comes as absolutely no surprise, as the bride herself is the owner of floral design studio Eclectic Sage. Since Heather works in the wedding industry in Raleigh, NC the couple decided to have a wedding at a new venue where she had not worked in before. Hence, a Norfolk destination wedding!
Though neither of them had family or ever lived in the Virginia city, the quirky couple fit right into Norfolk’s artistic and hip vibe. And the venue was perfect too―Heather imagined a greenhouse wedding while Steven pictured a castle, and the Huber Court of the Chrysler Art Museum looked like a combination of both. Heather, a former glassmith, said they were sold on the venue when they found out that the museum’s glass studio was available for cocktail hour.
Much like the name of Heather’s floral studio, this wedding was wonderfully eclectic―each detail was carefully crafted, chosen, and catered. The flowers were exquisite, and the vine wall backdrop on the staircases of the museum were even more. The ceremony decorative structure displayed a timeless message that will without a doubt stay with newlyweds throughout their marriage.
Congratulations Heather and Steven! Here are only a few of our favorite moments.
