A wine resort in Tuscany sounds like the most perfect place to escape to (and I plan to, the minute that we can), and it was the ideal venue for Elizabeth and Andrew’s Italian destination wedding! They planned a classically glam wedding day with lush garden party flowers, and turned to urewhite Photography and destination planner The Tuscan Wedding to help them pull it off from abroad!
The couple took inspiration from the Tuscan landscape for their wedding style, pairing airy what and dusty green to create a timeless color palette for everything from their bridal party to their ceremony flowers to the invitations by The Stovall Collection.
Since the Memphis-based couple were traveling to Italy with out of town family and friends for their destination wedding, they chose to forgo a traditional Rehearsal Dinner for an expanded Welcome Dinner! They hosted a pizza party at their venue, the wine resort Villa Dievole, to celebrate guests who had traveled from far and wide to celebrate with them and to showcase Italian hospitality and food!
Elizabeth looked like Old Hollywood perfection in her structured satin wedding dress from Maggie Louise Bridal! The classic fit and flare gown looked incredible with a deep v-neckline and sheer illusion back. The crowning touch was a line of buttons all the way down the train!
Hair and makeup artist Cherie Spisso showed off the sheer back of the wedding dress with a low side bun, accented by jeweled hair pins for an elegant touch. Lace trim on the edge of her cathedral length veil was the perfect romantic detail to cap it all off!
Boutique florist Flowers Living embraced the white and greenery garden party vision of the bride and groom, and created a ceremony that celebrated the beauty of the Tuscan countryside! They adorned the terrace where the ceremony took place with white floral aisle decor and a circular arch that surrounded the bride and groom.
It doesn’t get any more romantic than exchanging vows surrounded by the beauty of the Tuscan countryside!
Planner The Tuscan Wedding placed flower petals at each seat to be showered over the couple as they walked down the aisle as husband and wife. Caught up in the moment, guests completely forgot to toss petals as they cheered and waved – Elizabeth and Andrew decided to hold on to the moment and return to the top of the aisle. Standing in front of their guests gave them a moment to take in all the smiling faces of loved ones who had gathered to celebrate with them in Italy!
In keeping with their classic styling, Elizabeth chose floor length black satin dresses for her bridesmaids, and paired them with elegant white flowers!
Ready for some Tuscan magic? The portrait session in a cypress avenue at their villa venue is what magic hour photo dreams are made of!
Purewhite Photography gave Elizabeth and Andrew moments to treasure from their stunning wedding day under the Tuscan sun at a stunning wine resort.
Guests were seated for dinner under spreading oak trees and bistro lights to create an elegant al fresco reception!
Long white tables received a punch of color from dark wood chiavari chairs and patterned Italian china plates. Silver candelabras and hurricane candles lined the long tables to add crystal sparkle and the glow of candlelight.
Their garden party wedding could not have been complete without a stunning cake display! Sugarcups Cake Design decorated the tiered white cake with clutches of small pink flowers and a garden rose cake topper! The stunning dessert was surrounded by blooms from the ceremony flower arrangements!
