If you like the idea of eloping or having an intimate wedding, then you will definitely enjoy looking at Michelle and Kevin’s beautiful & simple elopement in Italy. The couple used to work together when they first met. ‘I used to have a crush on him and joined the softball team,’ explains Michelle. ‘I had never played a sport in my life but I knew he would be on the team. A busted lip and chipped tooth later, we became a couple.’
The couple dated for three years before their elopement in Italy took place. ‘We were planning a trip to Florence in Italy and I had a pretty good feeling he was planning to propose there,’ says Michelle. ‘One evening when I came home, Kevin had candles lit all over the house and Italian folk music playing in the background. He also had a nice bottle of wine we’d been saving opened. He met me at the door and pulled me into the house where he professed his love and his wishes to spend the rest of our lives together. He asked me then to marry him in Italy. We started planning immediately!’

According to Michelle, the venue Il Saviatino for their elopement in Italy stole the show. ‘Our wedding took place at a beautiful Italian Villa in the gardens overlooking the city of Florence,’ she explains. For her bouquet, Michelle opted for soft pink and white flowers with a touch of green.
For their elopement in Italy, the couple had five guests. The guests were the groom’s dad and his fiancée, the groom’s mum and another couple who have been family friends for over 32 years. They happened to be travelling to Italy at the same time as the couple’s celebration.
The highlight of the couple’s elopement in Italy was the ceremony. ‘We had an amazing officiant who really got to know us and customised all of the readings. It was so beautiful and emotionally touching,’
