Wedding in Rome: a captivating fusion of cultures at Villa Aurelia

Perched on one of Rome’s most scenic hills stands Villa Aurelia.

On June 24, 2023, this historic villa hosted the wedding in Rome of Tatiana and Richard, an American couple who chose to honor the bride’s Italian roots in a setting of unmatched beauty and history. This event was not just a celebration of love but also a convergence of different cultures, truly epitomizing a “destination wedding” in the heart of Rome.

Blanc Weddings, specialists in organizing destination weddings in Italy, meticulously arranged every detail of this unique event, crafting a perfect blend of diverse cultures in one of the world’s most romantic cities.

A dream venue: Villa Aurelia

Located on the Janiculum, one of Rome’s seven hills, Villa Aurelia offers breathtaking views over the Eternal City.

The villa, with its expansive gardens and frescoed halls, epitomizes elegance and style. The choice of this venue was no accident: beyond the beauty of the villa, its central location enabled guests, mostly from New York City, to enjoy Rome’s marvels during their stay.

A multicultural wedding

Tatiana and Richard’s wedding was a true mix of traditions. The ceremony blended elements of Jewish and Greek cultures, reflecting the heritages of the newlyweds, while the entrance to the reception paid tribute to the groom’s Lebanese heritage with a lively traditional dance. This amalgamation of traditions created an atmosphere of inclusiveness and joy, celebrating not just the union of two people but also their rich cultural backgrounds.

Moreover, with 164 guests primarily from New York, but also from various parts of the world, the wedding served as a true international meeting point. The presence of friends and family from different nations made the atmosphere even more special and celebratory, highlighting the importance of origins and traditions.

Day's mishaps: when it rains on the banquet

No event is without its unexpected moments, and Tatiana and Richard’s wedding was no exception.
A solitary cloud chose to make its appearance right during the ceremony and cocktail hour, bringing with it a brief but intense downpour.
However, the Blanc Weddings team displayed incredible responsiveness and professionalism, managing to get everything back in order in record time. The rain gave way to a clear sky, allowing guests to enjoy the rest of the evening filled with fun and dancing.
