A classic serenade to get the party started

An excellent way to incorporate your culture or your destination's traditions is through music! This couple opted for a timeless and classic serenade of a full live band (including accordion, trumpet, and tambourine) - dressed to the nines in suspenders and bow ties.




"The local Sicilian touch seamlessly integrated with the global celebration, from the exquisite wines to the traditional music to the UK garageband. It’s a testament to the universality of love—a celebration that honors the union of Anita and Laith and pays homage to the beauty of diversity. In the heart of Taormina, Anita and Laith’s destination wedding unfolds as a testament to the power of love to transcend boundaries and create a celebration that is as unique as it is universal." - Luxury Wedding Sicily



Fusion foods for an unforgettable reception

Luxury Wedding Sicily created an absolutely elegant and luxurious reception for the couple, that served as a great way to fuse their cultures. White lines, antique style chairs, and cascading greenery served as a timeless backdrop for the bold and colorful cuisine the couple offered their guests. Their family and friends were even welcomed to their seats by individual favors of the local Italian favorite, limoncello, as chic and yummy wedding favors!





Light up the night

A rainbow of lighting was used to transform the wedding reception into an all-night dance party! We loved how they surrounded the ceremony arches with blue lights and a sea of candles. The vibrant live music paired with gorgeous purple uplights created a night to remember!

To end their dazzling celebration with a sweet and personal touch, the couple's wedding cake was topped with the cutest custom topper! A perfect replica of the bride and groom topped the cake, featuring their unique cultural attire. This was a fabulous way to carry the cultural fusion theme through to the end of the night!
