Italian Countryside Inspired Glamour Meets Show-Stopping Fashion
August 4, 2017
Picking a favorite gown moment is going to be hard with this beauty. Wrapped inside this rustic olive grove inspiration is not one but two crazy beautiful embroidered Gossamer gowns that pair perfectly with the Italian countryside infused design and styling of Kaleb Norman James. Think romantic stationery by Seniman Calligraphy, rolling fields of lavender and the prettiest of imagery by Maria Lamb.

From Kaleb Norman James... If you've ever been to Highland Springs Ranch, you'll understand the draw of the olive groves on site. You become immediately transported to the Italian countryside, while simultaneously being just outside the Californian dessert. With this in mind, we went for an aesthetic that felt authentically Italian, rustic ceramic pottery in the place settings, to floral accented with Tuscan pears and grapes. Ultimately, we wanted the details to really be what carried the theme. The cathedral veil was one of the first items we looked for, knowing the juxtaposition of this veil in an olive grove would create a beautiful contrast. The tablescape was created with beautiful gold calligraphy, vintage flatware and custom embroidered napkins. The beautiful lavender fields created the perfect setting as the sun began setting, which were just adjacent to the olive tree grove, paired perfectly with the vintage green embroidered gown from Gossamer.
