Bride’s bouquet was something completely different from the rest of the florals. Despite Lindsay wanted a cohesive look, she dreamed a green and white piece for herself. This twist of greenery and tiny little flowers tied with Lindsay’s grandmother wedding dress lace, boosted the rustic glamour aesthetic.
Natural herbs in rustic pot adorned the long table, placed in front of the villa, just at the end of the Italian garden. They added and incredible natural look to this simple wedding. Groups of different aromatic herbs were alternate with many candles of different sizes. The couple also realised handmade name cards with monograms and personalised limoncello bottles of each guest.
