Colorful Inspiration from the Hills of Tuscany

This inspiration shoot is not only a work of art from the lens of Thecablookfotolab, but a true ode to the breathtaking colors of Tuscany. Inspired by vibrant shades you’ll find any time of year, Bianco Weddings designed every detail to reflect this Italian landscape and the results are so worthy of a place on your pin boards. Dive in right here! 

From Nazym Kombarova of Bianco Weddings… Our concept for this photo shoot was to show a different side of Tuscany as very bright, colorful, energy-filled place. We wanted to create a shoot that speaks to the story of a couple’s love and at the same time, we wanted to tell a story of Tuscany, where every color has its own meaning and significance.

Yellow is featured in the rolling golden wheat fields of summer and also represents the warm Tuscan sun rising up over the hills, vineyards and olive groves all year long.

Look at sky at sunset or mists in the morning and you’ll see all shades of pastel pink! Purple shades are here in the beginning of autumn, and dark purple is the color of the olives that are gathered at the end of the season.

And of course green. Green is the evergreen color of olive and cypress trees, as well as rosemary and sage, which you can find together in any plate of the local cuisine. Try to describe Tuscany without using a single color reference and we bet you won’t be able to do so!

From the Bride… Steven and I met in Texas, just by chance. Turns out, it was the chance of a lifetime. From that moment on, we started to build a life together and never looked back. A few years later, Steven proposed in Big Sur on a California road trip up Highway 1. To no one’s surprise, I said yes.

How we decided to get married in Italy is still not completely clear to me, but it was the best decision we could have ever made. It was the perfect place to gather our closest family and friends and enjoy what we love most; eating, drinking, laughter and exploring new places.

We were married in San Galgano, a roofless 12th century abbey, on a warm and beautiful day in late September. The mayor of a nearby town performed the ceremony and honored us with the most poetic and kind words we could have ever hoped for. It was one of the most breathtaking moments of our lives; even our guitarist joined in the happy tears.

We had rented a villa in Tuscany for the week, and there, under a sky of twinkling lights, we had the most spectacular dinner feast. The traditional Italian meal was served family style and wine flowed freely late into the night. That evening, my mother presented us with the most wonderful gift we could have imagined. Unbeknownst to us, she had asked each of our dear guests to share their favorite memories of both Steven and me during dinner. Throughout the evening’s celebration, the people we love most in the world, shared stories that made us laugh, made us cry, and left us feeling so incredibly blessed to have such amazing people share this truly remarkable day with us. Our wedding day is something that we think about often and we know we will cherish forever.

For us, Italy was a dream; something out of a fairy tale. It took a lot of faith and trust to plan a wedding plus a week full of group activities and events from a distance (Mom in Michigan, me in Seattle, wedding planner in Italy), but it was truly one of the most extraordinary experiences of our lives. We are eternally grateful to all those who traveled so far and did so much to make our week in Italy an unparalleled experience that we will hold in our hearts always.

A Wedding Under the Tuscan Sun

It’s easy to see why couples like Courtnay and Deyhven opt for a destination wedding. Especially when it’s set in Tuscany with their dearest friends and family along to celebrate. Chic Weddings in Italy made sure their guests were treated to the best food and wine Italy has to offer, and an al fresco dinner beneath the stars was the ultimate reception setting. See the beautiful photographs by Thecablookfotolab and film below from Katia Casprini.

From Chic Weddings in Italy… We met Courtnay and Deyhven in 2015 through a lovely Skype call. They were sweet, in love and very keen on getting married in our beautiful country. I remember chatting with them and thinking that they were really a committed couple and really sure about their idea to have a destination wedding.

Their priorities for the wedding celebration focused on enjoying a good time with their guests, treating them to fine wine and exquisite Italian dishes. They also wanted to have a recognized civil wedding in Italy and celebrate this important day not with a symbolic ceremony but with a real contract and signatures.

The palette for the wedding was blush pink, white, and light tones of gray, using a touch of gold which was used throughout the use of the gold candelabras depicted in the images.

The bride and the groom were very elegant and very beautiful and the night passed with a dinner under the Tuscan stars, among friends and family all dressed up for the occasion.

Courtnay and Deyhven are very much in love and that’s what we love about this couple. We could feel their love in their eyes and on the wedding day they were very relaxed that it was a great pleasure getting to know them in this special day of their lives.
