You know how they say Paris is always a good idea? I feel that way about Florence. It's a fairytale city rich in history, making the ultimate Italian wedding backdrop. Throw in pops of cheery colors, a must-see cake from Tuscan Wedding Cakes and photography by Sophie Epton, and we're in businesses. More in The Vault!

From Sophie Epton...Words cannot even begin to describe the magic of this incredible wedding day! Jennifer and Jesse's fairy tale wedding took place on top of one of the most beautiful cities in the world, Florence, Italy and the day was full of so much love and light (and all the champagne!) This celebration was such a joy to photograph, and a true feast for the eyes. The ceremony and reception both took place on the hotel landing that literally overlooked the entire city and created a breathtakingly beautiful focal point for the entire day.

Gorgeous colorful blooms and lanterns punctuated every landscape, and sweet details such as mini olive oil bottle favors and the most amazing Firenze inspired invite made a big impact on guests. After the sun started to set, the party was set ablaze with a sparkling champagne tower while everyone danced against the Italian starry night.

The next day, Jennifer and Jesse got dressed up once more for a "day after" session as we chased light all over Firenze..from the Boboli Gardens and Pitti Palace to the quiet streets of the Oltrarno side of the city. Jennifer was the most radiant bride, and we laughed all day amongst the hustle and bustle of historic Florence. This truly was one for the books, and I hope it inspires many other couples to chase your wanderlust dreams and always get married where your heart desires!
