Khrystyna Moro, principal planner and creative director at Toronto-based Pastiche Events had a gorgeous backyard micro-wedding in June 2020 after having to postpone her original wedding plans for 120 guests to sometime in 2021. Part of her and her husband Nicholas’ dream wedding was a three-week escape to Italy, which was also postponed.
“September was supposed to be a once in a lifetime experience for us,” Khrystyna says. “We were planning an extended honeymoon in Italy saying in unique and renowned places, exploring Tuscany and the Amalfi Coast together.”
Instead of hopping a plane, Khrystyna instead decided to create a little honeymoon-inspired wanderlust with a styled shoot she planned with Corina V Photography to capture a feeling of just-married adventure and romance. “I planned a a fun picnic for Nick and I to enjoy. Indulging in food and wines that we would have been enjoying in Italy; writing postcards to loved ones (fun fact: these vintage postcards were supposed to be our “main” wedding guest book cards for guests to write notes on for us); and dressed up as we would if we were under the Tuscan sun. It was an incredible experience for us, and with this shoot I hope to inspire other couples whose plans have been dramatically affected to still find ways to make the ordinary beautiful and celebrate anyway. In the end, your love will grow regardless of where you are or how many people you get married in front of. Tap into your inner romantic, make it beautiful & celebrate your love.”
