How To Have a Tuscany-Inspired Wedding in California
Dream of a Tuscan wedding but can't make the trek? This dusty blue and orange Villa Montalvo is proof you can replicate your dream day in the states.
There's nothing quite as charming as fall in Tuscany. But when you can't make the trip all the way to your dream destination? You make your dream destination a reality where you are. That's exactly what Judy and Steven did with the help of Charmed Events Group, in beautiful California. Layered with dusty blues and oranges, and scenes like this, they nailed it. Jen Huang was there to document it all and I promise, you'll get sucked into the gallery for far too long—a totally good thing, friends.

From Charmed Events Group... Judy and Steven had a beautiful Fall Wedding at Villa Montalvo in Saratoga, California. They wanted their design to be clean and elegant to reflect the venue that they chose. They liked bright pops of color but didn't want it to be overpowering so we chose bright pops of oranges paired with light blues for their event design, paired with elements in whites and golds.

Their ceremony took place in the beautiful gardens of the estate which was reminiscent of Tuscany. Since the setting was already naturally so beautiful, we didn't want to add too much to take away from what was in place, but we did add beautiful vines that climbed up the white pillars of the ceremony space and for whimsy, added floral crowns to the statues in place. We also had beautiful garlands draped on the ceremony chairs with pretty orange blooms to make the garlands pop.

Steven has a deep love of music so we incorporated their love of music and old records into the event design. Guests were seated at tables named after their favorite records and their names were displayed on old records that the couple has collected over the years that we sprayed white. Each record was adorned with orange blooms. Their table settings were so beautiful with pale blue linens with bright orange flowers paired with gold place settings and white chairs. Each guest had a custom menu that was also adorned in various orange blooms to make their settings pop.
