bridals where mona lisa was born

From Sonja de Graaf at FunkyBird Wedding Design “How can anyone resist working in a place where the famous Mona Lisa was born! Yes I am talking about the mysteriously smiling woman portrayed by Leonardo da Vinci. The surroundings you see from the terrace are the ones depicted on the background of that same famous painting.

Our photographer Milos Dokmanovic from FunkyBird Photography had this location in mind for quite some time but we somehow never got round to organizing something here. When we finally did contact them they were so incredibly enthusiastic and on the day itself did seriously everything to accommodate our needs, that I consider this the best photoshoot experience yet!”

From Sonja de Graaf at FunkyBird Wedding Design – “On this sunny day we headed out with an entire team of experts to Villa Vignamaggio and did some seriously romantic stuff. Luscious creamy peonies and white o’hara roses were my main choice and really complimented the uber-romantic wedding dress by Regina Schrecker which was shown in New York Bridal Week 2015 as a part of the new collection.

Thanks to the wonderful kitchen and home supply shop Bartolini Firenze we managed to get our hands on a Vera Wang dinner set and real golden cutlery. So a BIG thank you to them for trusting us with such delicate table ware.

We all really had a lot of fun that day and I hope everyone’s efforts shines through. Can’t wait to do the next one!”
