From A Charming Fete… The design for Danielle and Austin’s wedding was Tuscan-inspired with a rich, romantic color palette of deep aubergine, shades of plum, cream and dusty rose with touches of antique metallics. We wanted to achieve that warm, plentiful Tuscan vibe in a more refined, modern setting. Vintage style urns and vessels lined the king’s tables with an abundance of lush flowers and ripe fruit (plums, pears and grapes) overflowing onto the tabletop.
The place settings were anchored with beautiful ivory and gold china and custom menus. We wanted friends and family to feel like they were being seated at a rich and elegant feast. The chocolate linens gave the tables a dark, earthy feel. The ceremony and reception space boasts tons of marble, massive arched ceilings and elaborate columns which gave the perfect balance to our Tuscan tablescape. We incorporated some fun details like mini olive oil bottle seating cards and a decadent dessert bar with handmade backdrop. The wedding cake was beautiful in its own simplicity which we adorned with a few fresh blooms.
A gorgeous, lush backdrop was constructed for the ceremony which including tons of dripping vines and foliage mixed with florals. This served as a focal point throughout the reception and a backdrop to the couple’s sweetheart table. The bride paired some chic vintage-inspired jewels and accessories with her gown, including a gorgeous faux fur chubby. The end result was breathtaking and timeless.
