This Tuscan villa wedding at the stately Borgo Stomennano with silvery olive grove views had us hooked from the start. With a neutral color palette complementing the aged patina of the estate, May and Joel’s day was filled with heartfelt emotion, wow fashion and a bubbly bar that’ll have you saying cin cin in no time! Their day was captured by Life Stories Wedding, and we can’t help but to be enamored by every beautiful frame. The Wedding Boutique Italy brought the couple’s personal details and style loves together in a whole weekend of events that felt cheery, refined and all out Tuscan! Read on to see the full gallery in all its Italian glory.
FROM THE PLANNER & DESIGNER: We feel so very lucky to have been a part of May & Joel’s celebrations; they are the most beautiful couple inside and out. In terms of design, the concept was chic and refined yet fitting with the natural Tuscan surroundings. The Welcome Party styling was relaxed and fun, a chic picnic style event in the Tuscan evening sun with the most sumptuous food by Galateo Ricevimenti and their team- it is safe to say no one wanted to leave! The colour palette for the wedding day took inspiration from the gorgeous floral print of the Bridesmaid’s dresses, with a natural, garden-style feel.
The ceremony started in late afternoon, as it was such a warm day; the heavens threatened to open with a summer thunderstorm just before the ceremony started but we sat tight, and the most glorious evening ensued- by a candlelit dinner accompanied by the venue’s own delicious wine, and a truly fantastic party to finish! May’s change of outfit really set the tone, and everyone danced the night away under the stars. We wanted the ceremony decor to feel part of the garden, understated yet with it’s own subtle ‘wow’ effect; when May arrived and Joel looked back at her, it was the most magical moment. I think we all shed an emotional tear!
We love to create celebrations that not only give the guests an amazing taste of the ‘real’ Italy but also an experience that reflects our couples to the very core; May & Joel’s wedding was full of love, happiness and beauty pervaded by an indescribable warmth that is testament to the beautiful, easy and joyful love that they share together. A rare kind of love, that each one of us hopes to find in our lifetime.
