Tuscany Villa di Nozzole Wedding from Heather Waraksa

Tuscany is one of those places that I have never had the opportunity to visit, but just know I would love. Maybe it’s because every wedding we receive from this Italian paradise is literally dripping with romance and every image captured looks straight from a fairytale.  All I know is that I would rush off tomorrow to spend all eternity soaking in the fabulous countryside and old-world magic… and would say “I do” in an instant in one of Tuscany’s amazing villas.  So, this breathtaking affair captured by Heather Waraksa? It’s literally a dream come true with a stunning Villa di Nozzole setting, an intimate joy-filled reception and an entire gallery of lovely just waiting to be adored.  Join me there for sooo much more.

From Heather WaraksaI wanted to share Marisa and Brad’s destination wedding with you that took place in Tuscany. It was an extremely intimate event with nine in attendance (including myself and my second photographer) at a private villa on a vineyard. To say it was my dream wedding would be an understatement. Setting, experience, family, food and wine were the focus.

From the Bride… Despite spending more than a decade in the same city and having several mutual friends, we never crossed paths until friends of ours decided to move. We met at a going away party in Anchorage, Alaska and it was truly love at first sight. It was a whirlwind romance from there; engaged in Hawaii, moved to Baku, Azerbaijan, and married in the hills of Tuscany, Italy all within a year. Crazy. When we thought about places to get married, we both agreed it couldn’t get any more romantic than the wine country of Tuscany, Italy. Rolling hills, vineyards and villas seemed like the perfect setting. A destination wedding was also ideal given our new home overseas. Once we saw the pictures of Villa di Nozzole and the surrounding landscape, we knew we found our wedding location. We both wanted a small intimate wedding where we could actually enjoy ourselves as well as our special guests. We decided that in order to do this, we would only have our parents and one witness each present. We also wanted our parents to enjoy the Villa as well as the beautiful surroundings of Tuscany.

From Les Amis Photo… What happens when an Irish couple gets married in Italy? They have a lot of fun.

They love Oneglia, a city in Liguria Coast, and they decided to get married there. The atmosphere was relaxed and very funny. The style was a mix of elegance and shabby chic details with blue as the primary colour. The venue was a particular villa because it was the house of a clown.

The tables were named like Italian sites, and the decoration was rustic but romantic, with candles and low lights. The was a first dance under  the rain, and the dancing party was improvised under the arches. The bride dress was very chic and the groom dress was of a deep blue.

My father walked me down the aisle to Paul McCartney’s ‘Maybe I’m Amazed’, and of Mikhail best moment when we danced our first dance to Cat Powers ‘Sea of Love’ .

Amalfi Coast Wedding at Villa dei D’Armieto from Jillian Modern Photography

I was lucky enough to spend a few days of my honeymoon on the Amalfi Coast, and I can honestly say I left a little piece of my heart there. It’s pure heaven. Every little bit of the beautiful coastline wrapped me up and made me want to stay forever, so when I laid eyes on this wedding from Jillian Modern Photography? I was a goner. I got completely lost in all the Italian goodness, and I don’t regret one bit. Because this pretty fête captures so much of what I loved about that gorgeous place topped off with a Bride in a Vera Wang gown – officially checking off all my weaknesses. See so much more here.

From Jillian Modern PhotographyThis wedding is 100% DIY, all details were tended to by the bridal party on the morning of the wedding. It was a fun team effort! Lemons… lemons… and more lemons! And if you have ever been to Sorrento you will know why. The entire peninsula is covered by lemon trees. They incorporate the lemon into everything that you eat or drink. I had also fallin in love with the color green, and when we went to see the Villa dei D’Armieto, the interior used this color everywhere in its details.

Italian Wedding in Tuscany from Cindy Salgado Wedding Design & Events

So, we’ve all dreamt of running off to Tuscany to say “I Do” to the love of our lives, right?  I mean, that’s just a given.  A given, because Tuscany just so happens to be an uber-romantic spot for vow exchangin’ and a drop-dead gorgeous locale, to boot.  Case in point?  This breathtaking Badia di Campoleone affair planned to perfection by Cindy Salgado Wedding Design & Events, which is boasting one dreamy detail after another and a ceremony setting that will seriously wow you.  (Seriously.) Studio Innocenti snapped up every moment and this is one Italian love-fest you just can’t miss.  See it all right here.

And be sure to watch the beautiful highlight film from Wedding Frames by Comcerta:

From Cindy Salgado Wedding Design & EventsThis wedding was full of magical touches and pretty details that charmed the guests from morning ’till evening. The first time that I got in touch with Lynda and James, they were concerned about not being able to find the venue of their dreams, but after their first visit to Tuscany, they turned back to the UK with different options. They were so excited because Tuscany is truly a magical place. They decided to get married in the grounds of Badia di Campoleone, an extremely secluded venue in Arezzo, with breathtaking surroundings. They really wanted all of their guests to the time of their lives and enjoy their four days staying at Badia, and they did!

The ceremony was as private and romantic as Lynda and James always imagined it to be; the flower arrangements from Franci’s Flowers were stunning and matched perfectly with the natural settings. After the ceremony, they had a cocktail reception at the Italian garden, where an amazing swing band played while the guests had wine, prosecco and delicious Italian appetizers. Then they had the wedding breakfast under a charming Italian gazebo, where they had the lovely speeches full of emotions and many tears! It was a moment that will cherish forever. After the wedding breakfast, they moved into the swimming pool area were we had a photo booth set up with a mythical Italian Vespa. Then, they had the first dance, and while they were dancing, nobody noticed that just behind them, something was lighting up the sky — a hot air balloon that took the guests up and down.

All these magical moments were captured by the lens of Emma Innocenti, Marika and Lucrezia from Studio Innocenti. The video was captured by Wedding Frames. Working with Lynda and James was an absolutely joy! It really was an honor being their wedding planner.
