I always says that color makes difference and is true!

When Francesca Ferrucci from Lungarno Special Weddings described me style and location of Angela and Brian wedding and told me about colorful and joyful sunflower arrangements to complement the beauty of the Tuscan countryside I looked ahead envisioning on rustic bridal bouquet with white Dahlias, yellow craspedia and an accent of deep red Piano roses surrounded of all green herbs.

Angela and Brian are an German-American couple living in Boston, Angela growin up in Germany, both are scientist. They got engaged on Thanksgiving Day 2012 and when deciding on a location for their wedding they quickly realized that their dream wedding would be to spend a wedding week with family and friends, and get married outdoors in a Tuscan farmhouse or wine estate.

They found the perfect venue in Villa Lean, a XII century villa, with its beautiful views of the Lucca Valley and relaxing setting amongst olive groves and vineyards and they couldn't find better place to celebrate it! Stunning photos from Lisa Poggi tell all about their special day!

Key-words of this pretty rustic wedding are : simplicity, brightness and yellow colors starting from wooden table ceremony I arranged with the sunflowers décor to the long reception table, which I set up with loose red and yellow flowers in jars, with sage, thyme, rosmary and organic lemons. Invitation booklets and stationary were lovely designed by the groom himself.

A lot of personal and inspiring details:

Instead of a guestbook, the couple opted for a “wine box wish box”, where their guests wrote messages on little cards which were then placed in a wine bottle box with local Tuscan wine.

As part of the German tradition, happy balloons were released to bring the couple luck, and family and guests created a lovely “Tree of Life” life painting during the reception as a gift for bride and groom. Throughout the week all guests enjoyed the local organic food and cooking classes as well as trips to Florence, Pisa, and the Chianti region.

A special thanks goes to wedding planner Francesca Ferrucci and Lisa Poggi for lovely photos.
