Exquisitely elegant and perfect-for-fall, today's wedding inspiration designed by Amber Veatch Designs and Andrea Layne Floral Design takes us to the countryside of Italy, where the food is delicious, the friends are plentiful, and the sunsets radiate with all kinds of feel good vibes. And lucky for us Emily Katharine Photography was behind the lens to capture it all!
From the team, "we imagined the couple coming together with their family and friends to celebrate love and enjoy delicious food late into the evening."
Andrea collaborated with Amber of Amber Veatch Designs to plan, curate and style this romantic, European villa-inspired look.
Together, they dreamt up this beautiful, timeless details that appeal to a modern, relaxed bride.
To complement the earthy tones of the venue, this "Under the Tuscan Sun" theme was born.
"Our bride, Olivia, wore a stunning v-neck lace Daalarna Couture dress provided by The Bride Tampa, complete with illusion back and a delicate lace peplum tied around her waist."
"Her hair was tousled in soft effortless waves created by SMP Artistry for a classic, natural look that suits every bride."
"Her handsome groom, Lucca, wore navy slacks with a light blue dress shirt, navy suspenders, brown wingtip oxfords and a checkered bow tie that he pulled right out of his closet."
...and copious amounts of eucalyptus, olive branches and rosemary (be still, my heart).
Their curled and braided updo’s helped display their gorgeous fresh floral necklaces, created by Andrea Layne Floral Design.
Lined with a hand dyed, dusty blue gauze runner, the wooden farm tables from Set Rentals welcomed guests to take a seat and enjoy the warm evening filled with good food, lots of laughter and shared memories.
An eye-catching, overflowing centerpiece in a glazed ceramic bowl was balanced by two rosemary topiaries and candles to cast a warm glow over the table giving it an inviting, festive ambiance.
Trudy Melissa Cakes provided a three tiered naked cake, with ribbons of vanilla buttercream between the layers of moist butter cake.
It was perched on a table that looked like it has been plucked right out of a Tuscan villa and a wooden crate, both from Wish Vintage Rentals.
At each setting, guests were welcomed with a menu, wooden charger, a loaf of rosemary bread, a glass of Italian wine, and golden flatware provided by Set Rentals.
The cake was decorated with herbs and a floral topper by the baker and the floral designer.
It was a dreamy wedding inspiration that ended with a beautiful sunset and sweetest of kisses.
