09 Ott A sparkling destination wedding in the Tuscan hills
Sam and Steve the most sparkling destination wedding
Sam and Steve always dreamed a wedding in Tuscany, surrounded by lush landscapes, family and friends. They decided for a small villa nestled in the rolling hills of Florence.
The villa had the typical rustic character but with a twist. All the accommodations and the exteriors, were restored using the Tuscan colors and style. Gardens and the exteriors, had that fascinating vibe that was the perfect place for a sparkling destination wedding.
The rural classy style was the theme of the day. Nothing too extravagant but all the decors were perfectly studied to match the architecture and the fascinating style of the villa. The grey, white and green palette was reflected in all the decoration, from ceremony to dinner.
Elegant simplicity was the main theme of this sparkling destination wedding. A simple chuppah with a modern twist was used for the ceremony matched with the massive greens used for the chairs. The table was a sparkle of gold candelabras, elegant flowers, such as anemones, and greenery.
The bouquet of the bride was something out of the ordinary! Made with anemones and plenty of greenery it really stands out. Anemones and greenery were used for the buttonholes and the accessories.
All the wedding stationary was personally designed by Sam. Programs, menus and escort cards perfectly catch the sparkling destination wedding mood.
The Dress & Attire
The bride, a true style hunter, opted for a silk backless dress from Galvan London. As a designer and fashion stylist, Samantha to added a modern twist to her hairstyle. Using some pearl bobby pins from Jennifer Behr.
