Silvia and Manuel were both ridiculously stylin' for their wedding in Italy last July. I mean, his silver suit AND THOSE SHOES? I want a pair of those shoes. Sylvia's favorite color is fuchsia, and you'll find it on her shoes, on her dress, in her hair, and on her eyelids. That is some rockstar makeup, girl! Also, are you seeing how Sylvia did her bouquet? It starts out as a corsage and wraps up her arm. My favorite thing at this wedding? POSSIBLY.

The couple said their vows in a stunning cathedral (having some laughs with the officiant while they're at it! Love that!) before unleashing the party at a private villa in Lucca. What is a villa without an enormous swimming pool? And what is a swimming pool without an inflatable booze canoe?
