Shannon and Matt said “I do” in an Italian villa overlooking a gorgeous lake under the shady widowing branches of a massive tree. Complete with white roses, an abundance of baby’s breath and lush greenery, this ultra romantic destination wedding in Tuscany, planned by Italy Weddings, has swept us off our feet. We all know that dinner is an event to be envied in Italy and the gorgeous wedding reception decor is just the beginning. This is truly a wedding for all lovers of all things Italy (and therefore pasta and wine) so get ready to cin cin to the new couple as you soak in the beauty of the photos from The Fashion Wedding.
From the planner, Italy Weddings: Shannon and Matthew held a civil wedding in the presence of dear family and friends, at this amazing lakeside venue in Northern Tuscany. The advantage of a civil wedding onsite means not having to transport guests to more than one venue on the wedding day. Shannon and Matthew concentrated on time with their friends, time enjoying food, and plenty of drink and partying into the night.
This villa is located a stone’s throw from the Tuscan coast, and near enough to the historical towns of Pisa and Lucca, to make this a culturally and culinary experience to remember!
Villa Orlando offers the possibility of a complete and coherent on-site wedding day, with lovely spaces along the lake for the wedding ceremony, and a shady courtyard area, also overlooking the lake, and with the facade of the villa itself as the backdrop for a romantic and sophisticated evening meal. The scuderia (stables) are set aside for dancing and bar services, with the flow of guests out into the evening fresh air and lake view during the night.
Shannon and Matthew opted for an open horseshoe style of table set-up, with long floral garlands of local greenery and off-white flowers. The table setting gives both formality and intimacy, mixing the rural and rustic of the wooden tables and chairs, with the more formal setting of the table layout, to create a lovely balance, and a warm night of speeches and great Italian cuisine.
This gorgeous and sun-filled wedding in Tuscany is a baby’s breath dreamland! If you love baby’s breath as much as we do then here are 10 ways to style this versatile flower!
