Planned by celebrity wedding planner, Jennifer Zabinski of JZ Events with floral décor and event design by the world-renowned Preston Bailey, Alla Kosova and Scott LaRoque’s five-day destination wedding in Italy was truly a spectacular affair!
The happily married couple had an unconventional yet exciting first meet. Alla was at a party in Las Vegas, when she asked a friend to find her a husband. Her friend looked at the crowd and pointed to Scott, who introduced himself and though they admit it was awkward at first, the couple arranged for their first date to take place the following day. And so, began their journey of love!
“He has this humility to him. He’s driven, but he’s still down to earth. You don’t find many people like that nowadays.”- Alla Kosova
In 2014, Scott proposed to the love of his life right in front of the Eiffel Tower in Paris which is widely known as the city of lights and love. Can it get any more romantic than this? Cue the swoon!
Alla and Scott’s wedding took place in the cliffside town of Ravello, Italy. The couple kicked off their wedding weekend with a welcome party for their guests at Palazzo Avino. The following day, guests were surprised with a classic car driving excursion, followed by an evening boat ride to a seated dinner at On the Rocks in Positano. The day before the wedding, guests departed for Capri to enjoy a relaxed day at the beach. That night, immediate family members gathered at a family owned restaurant for an intimate rehearsal dinner.
The wedding ceremony took place at the Villa Cimbrone gardens, with the dinner reception in the Crypt, followed by an after party with dancing and a silent disco outside on the property.
“The town of Ravello, located along Italy’s Amalfi Coast, was the greatest form of inspiration for this wedding. The vibrancy of the culture, gardens, and proximity to Tyrrhenian Sea, all lended to the color scheme and design direction that unfolded over the course of several events that celebrated the couple and occasion.”- Jennifer Zabinski, JZ Events
