We are so happy to share our clients’ maps with our readers every week, and it’s great to know that our brides like seeing their maps too…here is a map from a 2008 wedding in Italy whose bride couldn’t wait to see her map on A Lucky Orchid Wedding!

We used similar coloring on a New York map recently, but it’s not a new effect as you can see from this older map. We love the cool, calm look that it gives, especially the shading into the sea.This wedding took place at the gorgeous Castello di Montegridolfo, an ancient castle with a history that dates back to medieval times and a struggle between two families to maintain its ownership. Today the hotel makes for a beautiful wedding location with the Adriatric Sea just a short distance away!Calligraphy style is Francine.
