The Michael Collins And Leonardo Dicova Wedding

One couple trades the jungles of Brazil for the rustic barns of the Hudson Valley.

Michael and Leonardo’s ties became an important part of their wedding ceremony. Their suits were made by a tailor in Brazil.

Sol Flower Farm designed simple centerpieces.

Coffee beans doubled as favors and escort cards.

Guests dined on grilled lamb, fish, a veggie pasta dish, and a selection of mini-desserts (which the couple was too busy dancing to enjoy). The evening ended with a bonfire, where a friend of the couple serenaded the crowd on a fiddle.

A friend played fiddle as guests gathered around a bonfire.

And, though Michael and Leonardo tried their hardest not to be the center of attention, there was one moment where they couldn’t avoid the spotlight: a friend bought them a ride in a horse-drawn buggy. “It was a total surprise gift from our friend,” Leonardo says. “We tried and tried to have as little attention on ourselves as possible, and lo and behold she goes and gets us a buggy ride—with chalices!—in front of everybody. But it was fun to drive away from our wedding and see it from a distance, like an out-of-body experience.”
