Wow, oh wow. We are completely enamored by today’s moody Tuscan wedding in a villa designed by the great Michelangelo himself. Jessica stole the show in a sexy gown with clean floral appliqués and a flowy train. Serenaded by swishing cypress trees and harmonious violins, Jessica and Danny said “I do” in an open Italian air garden. Stefano Santucci captures every sense and feeling of the day, and we can’t help but look at their reception and see the romanticism of a secret midnight hour. Dark burgundy blooms, natural flickering flames, rich organic fruits and a place setting that points to the night sky are just a few of our favorite details. Let’s dive in!
From the photographer, Stefano Santucci: The romantic wedding of Jessica and Danny took place in Tuscany, in the fabulous Villa Mangiacane. The Villa is a magnificent 15th-century villa built by the Machiavelli family, designed by the unmistakable hand of the Renaissance master, Michelangelo. Jessica and Danny are a down to earth couple that loves travel, art and good food. Their wish was to spend a relaxing weekend with family and close friends in a unique atmosphere. The day has been planned and styled by SposiamoVi, while the gracious flower arrangements were curated by La Rosa Canina in nuances of burgundy and delicate pinks. The ceremony in the garden was highlighted by large vintage urns with olive branches, an antique rug underfoot for the bride and groom. The table setting underneath the Loggia itself is worth a close-up! Organic, natural olive branches and herbs, dotted with deep dark flowers and seasonal fruits, in low brass and amber glass vases with brass candlesticks and long beige candles. Sprigs of berries and a fig embellish the place setting. Jessica wore a jaw-dropping Zuhair Murad gown, the delicate top, at the same time, reveals and conceals her graciousness.
