An Outdoor Wedding in Tuscany, Italy

Gemma and Jordan live between Sydney, Australia and Texas but opted for Italy for their destination wedding, in the Tuscan countryside at the beautiful Villa il Poggiale. Not too far from Florence, friends and loved ones gathered for an intimate event with a relaxed and rustic vibe, perfectly fitting of the setting.

To take full advantage of the setting, the couple opted for both an outdoor ceremony and outdoor dinner reception under the stars.

We asked the couple about their fondest memories from the day. “Best moment was exchange of wows, Jordan couldn’t stop tears and Gemma smiles say all about this LOVE.” And just after those vows too! “Happiest moment when after the ceremony walking down the aisle as a couple to the song Solsbury Hill by Peter Gabriel.”

The color inspiration came from the season – summer! Florist Franci’s Flowers Wedding Design shared the design with us. “Beautiful English david Austin roses are protagonist of both Gemma’s bouquet and long tablescape, simplicity of bark pot match perfectly with DIY favor and placecards, light of a lot candles complete beauty of reception decor.”

Rustic Fall Inspired Mountain Wedding

Apple cider, cuddling, blankets, fires, and leggings – just some of the few things that we look forward to each and every year when Fall starts to come around. But there’s one particular thing that we especially look forward to during the holiday season, Thanksgiving. A fun-filled evening of great company and even better food, so why wouldn’t you want to incorporate the holiday spirit into your fall wedding, no matter where your fall nuptials may be. To embody that holiday cheer we love so much, we have found some great details and ideas for our autumn brides to incorporate into their wedding. A warm color palette with touches of dark and light gray, green, and cream set the stage for this inspiration; and the cozy customized blankets, Moscow mules, and rustic woodsy touches allow you to get the true feeling of Thanksgiving in an elegant yet festive way.

Riviera Maya Destination Wedding

Alena and Andrew said I do in Riviera Maya, Mexico at the beautiful Banyan Tree Mayakoba, a place the couple and their families had visited many times over the past few years while on vacation so it was a natural fit to call home for their destination wedding.

We chatted with the couple’s wedding planner, Sarah Glick from Brilliant Event Planning about the bright, beautiful color palette and inspiration for the big day. Alena and Andrew really wanted a romantic feel without being too rustic and she absolutely loved a bright, coral color as a touchpoint to her florals. Nothing too stuffy or buttoned-up. From the lanterns on the dinner tables to the more “undone” look of the florals, we designed the day with this in mind.”

We always look for ways the couple infuses the local culture into their big day and this pair opted to do that through the food. The fare was full of local favorites (including even the bar selections and even escort cards).

As a fun twist on escort “cards” was serving watermelon + habanero pepper margaritas with drink flags that were handwritten calligraphy instead of the typical/traditional cards.  It was a huge hit!”

We asked this savvy bride and groom if they had a few words of advice for getting married at this specific property. “Just make sure you have extra transportation if you’re planning events at the main lobby building and at the beach areas. We did but only because our wonderful planners knew we needed it!”
