If you’re in the boat of believers that lavender filled celebrations are exclusive to France, then we invite you to peek at this gallery from Caroline Frost Photography. Because lucky for those of us that are stateside it’s a celebration that proves this flowering plant is all inclusive and perfect for any celebration. Complete with a crazy cool funfetti cake and handfuls of fragrant purple pretties, it’s a day dreamed up with the incomparable Kari Rider Events and we’ve got the entire day waiting for you in The Vault!
From Kari Rider Events…Villa Brusca is nothing if not a gathering place. The waterfront escape near St. Michaels, Maryland, has welcomed countless guests in the 15-plus years since Rich and Sandy Brusca purchased the scenic retreat. For their daughter Dana, Villa Brusca is an anchor, a constant source of treasured memories with the people she holds most dear. Never was the family property more special, though, than when she began sharing it with Colin Watson. A visit to Villa Brusca was one of the first trips Dana and Colin took together as a couple, the beginning of a love story destined to come full circle.
An invigorating mix of nostalgia and possibility filled the June air when Colin and Dana said “I Do” overlooking Villa Brusca’s scenic shoreline. An elegant, Tuscan-inspired celebration followed—a dream of soft lavenders and cool grays swirled with white-washed farm tables and natural wood accents, all beneath a sweeping sailcloth tent. “An intimate backyard wedding, only bigger,” as Dana put it. And another cherished memory to add to the Villa Brusca file.
