To accessorize for the day, Ashley wore a pair of European-cut diamond earrings she received as a gift from her mother. “We both collect antique jewelry and she felt these would bring me luck on my first move to France,” she shares. “I wanted to carry this sweet sentiment into my marriage, and they were also my ‘something old.’” The bride and groom did share one final touch to both their looks: a custom-designed fragrance by Dior’s in-house perfumer Francis Kurkdjian. ”When we were dating, Adrien saw how much I loved perfume and commissioned a bespoke couple’s fragrance for us,” Ashley says. “It is my all-time favorite and an incredibly thoughtful gift.”

While a signature scent was undoubtedly an important choice for the couple, they also made sure to consider the aroma of their venues. “As a perfumer, flowers are incredibly important to me—not only their beauty, but their fragrance,” says the bride. “Our outstanding florist [Riccardo Ciceri] didn’t disappoint, with custom arrangements of roses, tulips, peonies, iris, and ranunculus. All but the ranunculus are also fragrant flowers, and it was spellbinding to be surrounded by their scent.” She adds, “Since my husband also loves color, we opted for vivid arrangements mixed with fruits that embodied the spirit we had in mind.”

These arrangements filled the Loggia of Villa Balbianello as the couple recited their original vows to each other. “I teared up a lot,” says Ashley. “I loved having that moment for just the two of us. We were just so happy, in love, and full of emotion.” The newlyweds then took a boat ride to Grand Hotel Tremezzo, where the bride changed into her second gown for their intimate dinner reception on a private terrace. They started the evening by popping R de Ruinart as a nod to their engagement, followed by a six-course dinner. “After sunset, we continued the evening in candlelight with a harpist playing a mix of our favorite contemporary songs and classical pieces,” remembers Ashley. “We then cut our gorgeous wedding cake decorated with custom florals, danced under the moonlight, and went back to our suite at the hotel glowing.”

Looking back at it now, the couple describe it as the best day of their lives. “It’s embarrassing how often we watch our wedding video, but it is a dream that we adore reliving,” Ashley adds. “Later in the year, we had some parties scattered throughout Paris and San Francisco to celebrate with friends and family, but I’m so happy the actual day was just the two of us and wouldn’t change a thing.”
