Today our Italian collaboration with Nomad Republic Intl is featured over on Style Me Pretty, and we can't think of a better way to start our weekend! Our vision behind this shoot was "Beauty and the Beholder". Inspiration from the artistic culture of Florence was carried throughout our design. We incorporated hand-painted features with shades of inky-blue and indigo brushed onto plates from Red Raven Studios and paper elements by Peanut Press Creative with hand-lettering by Nancy Hopkins. Tuscan Wedding Cakes also included lovely blue details in an elegant, hand-painted, 4-tiered cake.
Balancing vibrant colors with soft hues, dusty pink linens dressed the table while mix-matched indigo napkins from Hostess Haven brought in a playful pop of pattern. Place cards were finished with gold leafing and fortunes to greet guests at the table, with sayings such as “You are enveloped in grace” and “You create magic” again reminding us that beauty is where you find it. Oak and the Owl created flowing floral arrangements complete with local foliage and natural greenery woven through white blooms with pops of pink and orange, that in the end paid tribute the beautiful rolling Tuscan hillsides.
Surrounded by such romantic and beautiful elements - monocles incorporated with escort cards, vintage inspired bridal jewelry from Twigs and Honey, our bride's gorgeous gown from Rue De Seine at The Dress Theory, and antique handheld mirrors - we were constantly reminded that "beauty is in the eye of the beholder". Take a scroll through our gallery of Tuscan beauty below, and many thanks to Mademoiselle Fiona for being there to play with us in Tuscany and capturing all the swoon-worthy images.
