You know how excited you are when a present arrives in a big box wrapped up in a huge pretty bow? Well, this wedding will sort of give you the same big grin. So yes, we are ridiculously happy today! It seems only fitting that we feel that way because of this modern fairytale that Nicolai Melicor has for us. Wrapped in all kinds of D.I.Y. prettiness (practically 80% was D.I.Y.’ed by the bride–clap, clap, clap!), Paolo and Kristia’s oh-so-sweet affair is overflowing with dainty details and charming crafts. Another thing we can’t seem to get over are the beautiful dresses. The wedding gown by Patricia Santos is to die for. And the styles and hues of the bridesmaid dresses, along with the printed ones of the maids-of-honor are totally brilliant and extremely chic. The best part? All these things are celebrated in romance and commitment. So let’s raise our glasses to the courage to love, the bravery to be creative, and the grace to love eternally.
