Marrying amongst the Florentine hills has to be about the most romantic way to go. Because if you ask me, being surrounded by the olive groves and Tuscan scenery easily makes for a mighty fine day. So who better to bring it all to life than Laura of Varese Wedding? She wove in sense of rustic chic style, with our favorite Lisa Poggi capturing behind the camera. Ready for even more? We’ve got it waiting to be perused, pinned and swooned right over here.
When Elise described me the style and the type of place, she want for her wedding, I knew that La Borriana would be the perfect setting. She would like to get married outdoor in a farmhouse or wine estate, surrounded by olive groves and vineyards and she want to have everything in one place. What better venue than a farmhouse in the Florentine hills, with a great rustic atmosphere and great landscape? The estate was able to accommodate all the guests and the romantic ceremony was set on the olive grove garden. To keep the country chic style I used different elements to decorate the ceremony and the reception. From the burlap runner on the reception tables to the flowers buckets on the ceremony aisle, from the mason jars with rustic flowers to the colorful buntings, that Elise created and that we hung under the reception marquee.
It was really exciting to work for Elise and Henrick. I had plenty ideas and when I suggested them to Elise, she was really enthusiastic and gave me more inspiration. — Laura, Varese Wedding
