Romantic Jewish Terrace Wedding in Tuscany

When your venue happens to be a villa owned by an Italian designer (ever heard of the Ferragamo family?) your wedding is guaranteed to have style. David Bastianoni was behind the lens of this country-chic affair with an imperial twist, Italia Celebrations created a picturesque day complete with L’Arte Della Torta Di Melanie Secciani cakes and endless romance.

From David BastianoniIn the heart of Tuscany lies Il Borro , a spectacular Relais and Chateaux owned by the Ferragamo family perfect for a wedding with big style!

The ceremony was held in the big space near the Villa, where the Groom arrived with all their friends, and the Bride (lovely in her dress) with her mum.

Bridesmaids in their beautiful dresses — pastel blue and bouquets in pale pink, create an atmosphere of fairy tale. The Groomsmen in a country-chic style, make it even more impressive ceremony.

All the emotions are read on the faces of the two mothers … and you know … the mother is always the mother!!!

Everything was continued in the wonderful Italian garden and guests were entertained by the typical Italian products and sparkling wine, between song and typical Jewish dance.

The two imperial tables in the terrace of the Villa created a picturesque view and warm color where everyone enjoyed the delicious dinner, while the gorgeous flower arrangements created a friendly and romantic atmosphere for all.

From the Melanie NedelkoMyself and the Event Designer and Planner, Elisabeth & Lorinda, from A Very Beloved Wedding, produced and creatively directed a Styled Shoot called “Toscana Nascosta” based on Goethe’s Italian journey. This shoot is about slipping away from duties, trying to discover yourself through the things you see, finding a meaning to words, learning to know yourself by and through objects of beauty, getting inspired, feeling free, happy and in love… unconditional love. Goethe was seeking paradise, just as we do, and he found it in Italy, just as we did.

Tuscany, Italy is near my base in Austria, so I love to spend holidays there from time to time. The unique nature, pine trees, olive trees, good red wine, lemons and delicious food – there is no more delightful spot to celebrate “la dolce vita” than in Tuscany! It was like a dream come true capturing this delicate wedding inspiration on film. The light is very special – it’s a perfect destination for photographers and of course for a wedding! I hope you all feel inspired when watching our vision of a perfect wedding in Tuscany!

From A Very Beloved WeddingThe Design and Styling was all about lemons and olive trees, spring and summer, white sculptures and forbidden gardens. The color palette was lemon yellow, olive green, off-white and beige and gold accents, the atmosphere and experience was Mediterranean, the materials were organic, woody and silky, the stationery was soft and natural, the flowers fresh and free and the couple elegant, agile and in love. We were so inspired by the place and setting that we even wrote a poem. There is no doubt: Italy surprises us and makes us even more creative.

Spring under my feet
Summer in my heart
It is because of you, I can feel the perfumes of blossoming spring flowers
Because of you I love the fresh lemons in my mouth
Because of you I see white sculptures in forbidden gardens
Because of you I feel this moment

From Laura at Varese WeddingI met Meghan and Drew in Italy 1 year before the wedding, Drew’s family was origin from Piemonte and his dream was to get married in a beautiful place in Piemonte , where the guests, coming from the United States, could enjoy the beautiful places and the good food. That’s why we suggested to visit some venues around the lake in Stresa and Verbania. After our trip with the couple and its family , they got in love with Villa Rusconi and they decided on a wedding on the lakeshore. We were very lucky with the weather, as after some rainy days the sun kissed everybody. The ceremony was held on the roses garden in front of the lake, followed by a cocktail on the garden in front of the villa. The wedding dinner was served under the winter garden with a live band background music. The couple chose a classic millefoglie cake, instead of the traditional multi-tiers wedding cake. The italian wedding cake was prepared in front of the guests and decorated with strawberries by Meghan and Drew. The wedding style was a mix of country chic and shabby chic with white and green color and a touch of blue. Dj music and pizza cooked on the wood oven of the villa closed a beautiful day. From The Bride…We live in New York, but we chose Italy because Drew’s family is from the region. We wanted to share with our family and friends the culture and beauty of Northern Italy. We also wanted to carry on the family tradition of the newlyweds beginning their honeymoon in Stresa. My dress was first worn by my Grandmother Irene Farro in 1955. She purchased it for $150 US! It was then worn by my Aunt Sandy in 1976 and then my mother Susan in 1980. It is made of delicate lace that was tearing so often during alterations I did not know if I could wear it. But Vera from NYC was able to salvage the dress and adjust it so it fit perfectly. I admire and adore vintage craftsmanship and wanted to display this beautiful work of art. It was an honor and privilege to where this dress. The best part of the wedding is hard to choose. Everything was perfect and without fault. Laura and Varese Weddings along with Maio Group, The Wonderful Band, and Lisa Poggi allowed Drew and I to enjoy our day while keeping all aspects flowing smoothly. One moment that does stand out was the conga-line that was formed. This is a Cuban dance that became a household name in the US. The dancers form a long, processing line that snakes throughout the room. When I turned around and saw my 86 year old Grandmother dancing I was in hysterics. We also loved the boats to and from the villa, the beautiful aisle and decor, the cocktail hour, dinner, beverages, and overall ambiance. It was exactly the day Drew and I had envisioned. Laura and her team captured everything we could have wanted. Not to mention living in the US and communicating mostly through email. Choosing linens, glasses, flowers….all without seeing first. It was absolutely perfect. For those couples who envision a destination wedding should definitely inquire about a wedding planner. I felt that I had little to worry about and had ultimate confidence in Laura and her team along with the Maio group. I was calm and had no worries the day of the wedding. Everything was perfectly orchestrated, communicated, decorated, and every guest was ecstatic! I would also suggest to each the bride and groom, that on the day of your wedding, stop and look around and remember specific moments (like I did with my grandmother). The day is gone in the blink of an eye and stepping back to cherish these moments makes you appreciate the celebration more. Buona Fortuna!

Colorful Tuscan Countryside Wedding Inspiration

When you’ve got loads of beautiful wisteria climbing rustic walls, tables filled with delectable bites and vino, and scenes like this, you can only be in Tuscany. A destination where rustic marries elegance so beautifully, like this shoot designed to perfection by Weddings In Tuscany. Soak up every ounce of color (how lovely are those blooms by Jardin Divers?!) here in the gallery from Janna Warm.

From Weddings In Tuscany By Chiara SernesiWhen Janna contacted me for a shoot in Tuscany, she was looking for a romantic, beautiful place with a lots of wisteria. So, I thought of the beautiful Medieval Borgo of Montestigliano, where you can find blossoms of wisteria everywhere and Medieval charm and character. That is the real taste of Tuscany.

This time of year the wisteria is a phenomenon here in Tuscany. It is a breathtaking spectacle
if you dream of getting married in the Tuscan countryside. Remember that all the plants and the flowers come to life in April, so it is a perfect theme for weddings.

The color palette was inspired by old pale red walls, wisteria blossoms and the Tuscan countryside: natural tones with colorful flower accents that looked elegant and beautiful. The make-up and hair looked natural and delicate. The open back wedding dress was very elegant. The food had intense fresh flavors from a few choice ingredients which were freshly picked or pulled from the earth. Elegance and simplicity; that is Tuscany.

Together with a team of talented providers I tried to create the perfect atmosphere for a romantic Tuscan wedding.

From Facibeni FotografiaTuscany is widely recognized for its hills, for historical cities and great food. A few know the Versilia coast, in northern Tuscany, and its beautiful towns. Protected by the Alps on one side and the sea on the other, Versilia is a favorite destination for summer vacations in Tuscany since the ’60s. A long 30 km road separates the bathing resorts from cities full of boutiques, art, and good food. The wedding of this beautiful couple was organized in Pietrasanta, a small but lively town rich in art and craft shops, art galleries and taverns with local products. The center of Pietrasanta is the Piazza del Duomo, where is the great cathedral, completely covered with marble outside and painted with frescoes inside.

Alessandra and Massimiliano, like many other Italian couples, chose a religious ceremony in a small church and the reception at the nearby beach, inside a beach resort. After the ceremony, guests moved to the seashore for a cocktail made with sparkling wine and fresh seafood. After that, an excellent dinner prepared right at the beginning of the beach, under the stars with the sound of the sea in the background. The bride was looking for an elegant wedding. She wore a simple and dress and a long veil. The weather, as often in this area, was sunny and breezy; guests have enjoyed a romantic sunset on the sea. Enjoy!

From Il Bianco E Il RosaAlessandra and Massimiliano got in touch with me four months prior to their wedding day. They had already booked the church and the venue for the receptions. They were looking for the most suitable vendors for their French-style wedding on the beach in Tuscany. Alessandra and Massimiliano have good taste and, thank to this, were not easy to please. They were looking for a classic but chic ceremony in the church. Given the short time available and the many things to do before the wedding, I got started on it right away.

The theme they chose was “Ladurèe” – the proposal took place in Paris, on February 14th, at the 58 Restaurant on the Eiffel tower. I immediately got in touch with Facibeni Fotografia for wedding photography, as I knew they would have been perfect on this occasion. One of the photographers, Cristiano, is a master in collecting the finest details from a wedding.

The ceremony took place into the stunning Pieve di Valdicastello in Pietrasanta, and was followed by the reception in a luxurious beach resort in Forte dei Marmi. The guests enjoyed canapes on the beach before sit for dinner on the side of the beautiful swimming pool. Fireworks over the see lighted up the night. The music, played by a band that came from South of Italy for the occasion, highlighted the cake cutting, in front of many elegant and thrilled guests.
