Valeska and Federico lives in Switzerland with their 2 little boys. They contacted me with pretty clear ideas - having catholic ceremony and big party for around 150 people. Luxury, elegant, but with italian class and charm - Federico is from Italy.
They also asked for big after party in art niveau style, with burlesque dancers, lots of cocktails and typical czech food.
Instructions were clear and it was not difficult to find the best venues - newly opened Andaz hotel, St. Vithus cathedral at the Prague castle, Zofin palace and American bar at Obecni dum (Municipal house).
We had to find french speaking priest, since majority of the guests were speaking French. Flowers at the palace were colorfull, but the church was decorated with lots of white roses - endless elegance....What made the ceremony speachless was Prague symphonic orchestra with children singers, everyone cried.... Guests received at the entrance bracelets with the date and couples name to recognize them and also to bring a bit of fun - like at the summer party...There are always many people at the cathedral, so we hired professional security team to help us.
Another fun part of the wedding was historical tram that escorted guests to the Zofin palace. Each carriage had accordeon player, lots of Becherovka and champagne - we really took care of the drinking regime of our guests.
Swiss-italian elegance with touch of boho...
What should have the right italian apero outside Zofin palace - arrival in stylish car. Lots of bubbles, Parma ham and Parmiggiano cheese and other nibbles. Great music to let people dance. Italian Piaggio car where we put gifts for the guests. Amazing guests with colorful clothes. Guarantee of big success! Cocktail finished by bouquet toss and we invited all guests inside the palace.
Guests sit at the round tables decorated with flowers in summer colors. We decorated some tables with tall decor, some with low and some with candelabras to bring fresh look. DJ arrived from Switzerland and started the right mood.
Menu was italian, including selecton of antipasti, risotto and steak. There is amazing italian chef living in Prague, doing the best mille foglie cake. Ours had almost 2 meters diameter and was decorated with fresh strawberries and raspberries. The best ever...
What else - party, party and party - after the dinner bartenders started to mix great cocktails, snack for guests was prepared and we arranged corner with selection of italian, swiss and czech minidesserts.
Next day started after party at the American bar - I thnk noone expected show with dancers, burlesque and this is what we wanted - to surprise our guests.
Valeska and Fede told me from the beginning that they want to prepare unique weekend for their guests. I am sure this dream came into reality perfectly....
