All The Beautiful Details Of Camille Co And Joni Koro's Rustic Wedding In Siena, Italy
Congratulations to the blushing bride and dashing groom!
Influencer and entrepreneur Camille Co is now officially Mrs. Joni Koro, and the wedding ceremony was as magical as all of us had imagined.
Here are the details!
Hours before her walk down the aisle, Camille revealed a surprising milestone in her relationship with Joni through a heartfelt Instagram caption—they are, legally, already husband and wife and have been since October of last year. The two took care care of the necessary documents binding them as Mr. and Mrs. for life in Manila, but even so, had continued to live separate lives before their big day in Italy.
Camille wanted to wait for the day she and her now-husband officially said "I do" in front of friends and family before confidently, and happily, calling herself a wife.
And finally, on a crisp afternoon in a private little pocket of lushness and romance tucked away in Siena, Italy, Camille and Joni promised to be by each other's side and sealed the deal, for life.
The ceremony was held with Pat Dy and Bob Nicolas capturing all the event's most special moments.
Before embarking on the final steps on her journey to beginning marital bliss, Camille was photographed solo wearing a minimalist gown in ivory by designer ready to wear and bridal brand Lela Rose reminiscent of the understated number Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle wore to her own royal nuptials.
The winning detail, though, was Camille's headpiece; sprucing up the traditional bride's accessory of a veil, the ever-stylish Camille combined it with a headband featuring oversized pearls with a pretty sheen.
Her makeup and hair were just as subtle, but perfect for the occasion. Trading in her playful shades for a monochrome, yet vibrant finish, Camille was an absolute vision with dewy cheeks, a soft glossy lip, and neutral smokey eyes. Her makeup artist (and hairstylist for the day!), celebrity fave Anthea Bueno, is to thank for her radiant bridal look.
The moment Camille made her way to the aisle, all eyes were on her; from her bridesmaids donning bold burgundy dresses—which matched Camille's lush, rose bouquet to a tee—to her groom dressed in a copper suit, everyone was fixated on this bride.
Even the rain couldn't dampen this sight; Camille and Joni simply concentrated on the ceremony that would lay the foundation of the rest of their lives ahead of them as a married couple, and that was all that mattered to them in that moment.
The venue was likewise perfect, rain or shine; a quiet meadow dressed up with white petals and tall pampas grass to accommodate a wedding did the trick.
Although the outdoor ceremony was short and sweet, this couple's guests still agree that it was incredibly touching to finally see this bride and groom's patience give way to the beginning of a fulfilling marriage.

Moments after their wedding, Camille and Joni's wedding suppliers were quick to congratulate them, too. Design print workshop Printcafe who took care of their beautiful, almost catalogue-like invitations and printed programs, wished them a lifetime of adventures and laughs, while florist Stiatti Fiori and luxury caterer Guidi Lenci happily reposted snaps from the day.

And as Camille and Joni, along with their equally well-dressed guests, moved on to their dinner reception held at the Tinaia Hall, the night's mood quickly changed from still and serious to festive and joyful.
The couple's wedding party greeted them with rows of pretty sparklers, and later in the evening, raised their glasses in a celebratory toast.
Two rectangular tables were set up for the intimate wedding party, with an indoor canopy of string lights adding a dreamy, golden glow that reflected off the brick walls. For guests to have something to remember the evening by, personalized place cards were added to the setup.
Basking in the warmth of good company and a lovely tablescape of dusty sage green and deep red that matched Camille's bouquet, Joni and his wife were nothing but smiles all throughout the evening. They were smiles that were most apparent when Joni and Camille danced their first dance as a married couple, inviting endless swooning from those there to witness the moment.
Of course, with a group of friends as fun as Camille's, this wedding party wasn't complete without everyone's participation in never-to-be-forgotten games and dancing.
Joni led the way with a hilarious dance for his new bride who also herself had a blast. Changing into a second outfit for post-dinner partying featuring flirty feather details, Camille was ready with her adorable dance moves and a seemingly bottomless reserve of energy.
The party's not over yet, though.
The day after their wedding and after a full 24 hours or more of celebrating, Camille and Joni have one last event to look forward to with all their guests in tow: a relaxed Italian brunch (which they're funnily calling a hangover meal) in their villa's spacious living room.
