From Fabulously Chic Weddings… La Casa Toscana, formerly a private estate only hosting family affairs, was recently opened to the public and as a wedding designer, I was ecstatic to get my hands on it! We partnered with an amazing team of creatives, specifically Floral Symphony, to create the overall design, and So Staged, Script Me Pretty and Sweetified to bring the concept to life through other decor details. La Casa Toscana is a stunning, and very unexpected, Mediterranean inspired home in Southwest Florida.
The venue itself is so beautiful and inspiring; we wanted to bring out the garden feel of it and present it in a soft color scheme, without just sticking to the “go to” of just blush. We couldn’t not include our fan favorite shade of blush, but we loved mixing in soft purple tones and mauves to give the color scheme some depth, while keeping the soft, feminine look that we desired. We loved styling the bride and groom with two very different looks. A second dress for brides has been popular for many years, but more recently, grooms are starting to do a second look too!
The groom’s first jacket was a fun, yet sophisticated mauve jacket. We paired it with a tulle skirt Wtoo gown with a nude underlay. The moody tones worked so beautifully together. The second tux was a more classic black tux look, but with a paisley print. We paired with with a sexy, yet sophisticated gown by Made with Love Bridal, adorned with soft and airy floral appliques galore! For the ceremony, the venue often uses a permanent arch structure for the backdrop, but we really wanted to do something different, and show the versatility of this property (so many options for ceremony spots). So, we used the gorgeous home as a backdrop instead.
We wanted the space covered in florals and greenery, and Floral Symphony did not disappoint. They cleverly utilized the beautiful structures that were already in place as an entrance to the aisle, and created a natural, free flowing arch structure at the altar. We used So Staged’s natural wood King Louis chairs for guest seating, and they were the perfect addition to the natural and flowy, yet polished, look that we created for the ceremony. For the tablescape, we combined the lush texture of the BBJ gray velvet linen with soft wood tones of the charger plates, napkin rings and King Louis chairs to convey the sophisticated garden look that we desired. Script Me Pretty beautifully accented the details with a gorgeous menu and place cards in blush ink. Sweetified bakery created a gorgeous cake with a gray toned background accented by sugar flowers and appliques in all of the pink and purple shades we used. We staged it on asoft wood accent table from So Staged, adding a flowy soft purple chiffon to further bring out the tones and create some beautiful movement. All of the details really came together perfectly to create a shoot that wowed everyone that was present!
