When Lilly was 18, she went on a five month trip to Argentina and ended up moving there to do missionary work. Duilio, who is Argentinian, was doing missionary work for the same organization. They became friends as they worked together to help others. Over the years their friendship turned to romance and the rest, as they say, is history. Lilly and Duilio recently moved to the US to begin a new chapter of their lives together, starting with a wedding at Kings Hill Inn and Barn in Maine. The groom rode on horseback to the ceremony which took place under a white trellis draped with pastel florals.
Lilly was radiant in her Lazaro gown with its full skirting and sheer, lacy bodice. She finished her look with red patent leather shoes and a fingertip veil. Her bouquet was a vibrant mix of red and purple florals with pale blush accents and her bridesmaids wore dresses in those same shades. Duilio was handsome in khakis and a red blazer and his groomsmen rocked khakis with white shirts and suspenders.
Lilly and Duilio had fun posing for portraits on the venue’s grounds before heading into the barn for the reception. Dinner tables were set with white linens and red napkins and rustic details took center stage. Wooden signage and delicate florals completed the decor. The favors were bottles of Argentinian Malbec, a celebration of Duilio’s heritage and the country that brought them together. After the cake was cut, the bride and groom changed into casual clothes to dance the night away before exiting through a fun sparkler send off. Congratulations Lilly and Duilio!
