A Wedding In Vatican City

Let us all end our work week with a bang as three of the big names in the wedding landscape joined forces to give us an extravagant experience. They take us to the land where untainted history, unimaginable art, rich gastronomy, and endless love co-exist: Italy.

This “Roses and Vines in the Eternal City” themed wedding is undeniably gorgeous! But what’s even bigger than this is the colossal love story of Julius and Joanna who had been the focus of this experience all along. The couple got married in the lovely city of Vatican with the help of the great wedding artists. Francis Libiran exquisitely dressed the bride with his long-trail gown, while the effervescent Mariah Santos used her undeniable skills to glamorize the bride. Of course, let us not forget Nice Print Photography for showing us how beautiful the city is and how magical this wedding has been.

As the couple shared to us:

1. How long have you and Julius been together before getting married and how did you know that it’s time to settle down?
We have been civilly married since May 2007. In celebration of our 10th wedding anniversary, we decided to have our church wedding at the Vatican.
2. What made you decide to get married in Vatican?
As devout Catholics, it is our lifelong dream to have our church wedding at the center of Catholicism.
3. Any tips on completing or choosing your dream team (wedding  suppliers)?
Have a vision, know the details of what you want, and search for the best suppliers based on recommendations from friends and online reviews (almost everything was coordinated online for this destination wedding).
