I'm having a major wedding crush moment over here. This one, you guys—it's like something out of a fairytale. The sun hits every corner of every image captured by Greg Finck just right, the combo of pinks with a light blueish gray is on point, the entire design by Federica Beni is goals... and can we just talk about those blooms for a sec? La Rosa Canica Firenze nailed it. Have you ever seen a more gorgeous pink bouquet? I wanted to give every single image it's own board. Thankfully, we've got a big beautiful gallery with more.

From Greg Finck... This lovely couple celebrated their wedding in the late afternoon of a warm August Saturday, in one of the most magnificent venues in Tuscany, La Foce, surrounded by a small group of loved ones, their strict families and a few friends. We love small weddings since you can feel the intimacy and the emotions more than ever.

Eric a software engineer for a music streaming company and Tamara leads strategy for a start up working in the digital technologies business, met in San Francisco and bonded over their love for travel, cooking and art. They love traveling and wanted to share their passion for discovering new places and cultures with their family and friends. Tuscany was where the couple got engaged. They fell in love with the rolling hills, amazing food and friendly atmosphere of the Italian countryside. They couldn't not have imagined having a wedding anywhere else.

From the Bride & Groom... When we planned our destination wedding, we did not know where to start but we knew that design was extremely important to us. Eric began following wedding photographers on Instagram and since most of them credit wedding planners and designers, that was a great way to find the aesthetic we loved. After we saw the weddings designed by Federica Beni, we knew we had to work with her. Federica's attention to detail and the eye for design was what we were was looking for and she assembled a team of the best vendors that made our day better than we could have ever imagined.

From the Bride... Once venue was finalized, I started looking for my wedding dress but although I tried on a variety of dresses, I could not find something that I believe represented my personal style while also fitting into the design of the wedding. Then I reached out to my friend, fashion and lifestyle influencer and entrepreneur Nasiba Adilova who introduced me to fashion designer Prabal Gurung (@prabalgurung). I had always admired Prabal's style and the values that his brand represents - female empowerment, acceptance and diversity, so I shared the mood board created by Federica with Prabal's team and they designed the wedding dress to complement the venue and the design of the wedding. During the reception, I then changed into the second custom dress by Prabal Gurung.

From Federica Beni... The unique spaces offered by the venue allowed us to create different atmosphere for each part of the wedding - from the ceremony in the formal Italian garden to the reception al fresco to the dance party by the pool. Besides, in this specific venue, we made sure that guests could enjoy and discover each part of the wedding in a new way and the new space. I worked in this venue several times but each time is a challenge to design a a special event (and most of all completely different from the previous ones) able to reflect the couple’s vision and to be perfectly cohesive with the environment.

Being a late summer wedding, I thought to design a palette incorporating different shades of pink, from dusty rose to Mauve and adding some terra cotta hints for the arrangements of the dinner table, which recall the reddish shades present all around the venue and typical of ancient Tuscan architecture.

I love giving the table setting a unique aspect and in this specific situation I decided to opt for a grey linen table cloth and for a dinnerware with lots of character and textures which make the overall vision so beautiful and result so much from the film photography.

The sculpture in the Italian Garden of the Villa is usually the site used for symbolic ceremonies but having worked there several times, I wanted to create something unique with them. Tommaso from La Rosa Canina was the perfect collaborator and created these arrangements starting from the ground, at different eights and embellishing the sculpture and the altar itself.

Tamara and Eric decided to do their first dance right before dinner, when the sun was going down and the light all around was simply perfect. We had this beautiful dance floor with a surface recalling a white aged wooden flooring perfectly matching with the dinner area where it was positioned. One of the aim when creating some installations, is to respect what is around to low down the impact on the design and this dance floor was perfect!

As many other times we had a great photographer, Greg Finck, who was simply amazing (as usual I would say) capturing perfectly that intimate atmosphere that we wanted to highlight, in the golden late summer light.
