This wedding inspiration is absolute perfection, we can’t stop looking at these gorgeous photos! Everything is just so stunning; from the bride’s sophisticated loose updo hairstyle, the floral arrangements, the soft blush colour palette, the venue… it’s safe to say we’re obsessed! Each image is just beautiful in itself, yet the collection of photos tells a romantic story inspired by Tuscany.
This luxurious editorial shoot is equally chic as it is romantic. The use of a blush and cream colour palette makes this Tuscan affair incredibly feminine and sophisticated, and the palm trees that scatter the venue add splashes of green to break up these warm pink hues. Despite being located in California, the brick-clad floors, ornate fountain and architectural design makes this venue seem as though it was a traditional Italian villa plucked right out of Tuscany. The decor was kept very understated to let the beauty of the venue really shine through, and emphasise the Tuscan feel. Personal touches were added throughout, such as an illustration of the venue on the invitations. The blush tones of the escort cards were juxtaposed with black wax seals for a unique and fashionable twist.
The floral design was classic and kept with the colour scheme, with a beautiful floral arch for the ceremony images. The flowers were kept simple, using soft and delicate blooms to compliment the gorgeous surroundings. The floral arch was a focal point at the top of the brick stairs, framing the fountain to create a serene atmosphere.
The natural light cast a golden glow onto the decor, highlighting the intricacies of the reception table. The table-top decor included wooden chairs and gold dinnerware to add a modern twist whilst remaining effortlessly elegant. The table was completed with a floral centrepiece that was cohesive with the floral arch and bridal bouquet, creating a sense of continuity throughout the venue.
The bride wore three amazing gowns from the San Francisco Bridal Galleria. The first look consisted of an elegant lace dress by Ines di Santo which complemented the ceremony space perfectly. This intricacy of the dress, alongside the bride’s delicate hair and makeup created an image of perfection among the floral arch and beautiful fountain. For the reception look, an A-line dress by Berta was chosen. This gown was embroidered with stunning 3D flowers and small embellishments which matched the cake- it’s these simple, yet well-thought details that make a celebration a touch more personal.
And it doesn’t stop there! For the final scene of the editorial, the bride wore an enchanting gown by Monique Lhuillier for a luxury picnic. An elegant picnic table was created with florals, soft linens and silk runners. The cake was inspired by the floral garment and was a sweet touch to this magnificent Tuscan-inspired editorial.
