The Charles Bridge is an iconic symbol that has stood the test of time, a gateway taking us to another time and place. The statues lining the bridge are ominous, mystical, gilded. And their culture honors love and passion as well as human connection through the simplicity of “la vita quotidiana” (everyday life). They pride themselves on creating and maintaining a traditional sense of romance in their relationships and returning to the past can bring a richness to anyone’s current relationship. The bride’s stunning Kelly Faetanini gown with gilded accents and gold leaf tiara by Eden Luxe Bridal are the perfect starting point. Black paper goods with gilded ink echo the ominous statues while the plum and rich wine hues of Blue Gardenia Events’ florals, Melissa’s Fine Pastries’ cake, and the moody yet dramatic tablescape are deeply amorous. The bride and groom are certainly the stars on stage of this mystical romance – and, their tender embraces reveal a deep and abiding love… a tale as old as time and as timeless as the Charles Bridge.
