A Touch of Tuscany in California for a Styled Shoot

Imagine being transported to Italy, but less than an hour from the Pacific Ocean. This touch of Tuscany venue brings every guest to Europe at first glance. We love a unique wedding and this one has all the right touches. From the combination of different florals, to the European style venue, to the bride’s dress, we are in awe with all the details. Styled shoots like this allow us to envision ourselves getting married in that space or become inspired by the details included. The combination of lace, blush and elegant florals in this one is sure inspire those who want something a little more untraditional.

The planner shares,

Wanting to create a great Italian Al Fresco wedding, we decided that Sunstone Villa in Santa Ynez, California, was the perfect house for our styled shoot. With accents of fresh coral and white floral pieces, our vision was to create stations that were both welcoming and special. Our floral arrangements were created with : Astromerias, Amaranthus, Chrysanthemums, Peonies, Ranunculus, Sweet Peas, Carnations, and Roses.

Italian tradition revolves around big family gatherings, great wine, and good food. These are important aspects, so we made sure to include items throughout the space that transmitted an inviting message. For the attending guests, we added a grazing table, fresh fruit, and welcome bags. The bags included breadsticks and rosemary leaves for that special Italian touch, which completed our vision.

The details from the planner,

“The bride wore an exclusive, Berta Privee gown. The groom complimented the look with a classic and timeless black suit. The cake was a simple, yet romantic symphony in a mix of muted blush, and a beige cream.

The stationery items include cotton paper with deckled edges and a delicate illustration of the venue. Guests will see calligraphy ribbons in specific places to enhance the romantic look. These were at the tables in each setting, at the cake, and ,of course, with the bouquet.

The ceremony stairs had an ombre style decoration. We used various color tones of roses within the palette and a mix of lush greens. The aisle had floral pieces on the ground and by the chairs. The option for cocktails at the bar included both refreshing citrusy and fruity drinks. All the details tied together perfectly for a summer night under the stars. “
