Italy Inspired Rustic Wedding

Our inspiration came from Ryle Hitchner’s travel photos of Monterosso, Italy. Many of the creative team members have traveled to the region, so we created a wedding design that payed homage to the culture, exquisite light, faith and importance of gathering with friends and famiglia. We chose an organic color palette, rich in texture, embracing the dusty greens and soft yellows found in the olive groves and lemon orchards. The wonderful food styling by Caitlin Van Horn, allowed us to reveal the hidden world of wedding preparations; a production in Europe that is quite sacred. Combined with humble details, expressive calligraphy and the authentic adoration of our couple, our ‘ode to Italy’ is intended to encourage couples to seek inspiration in the traditions and beauty of their surroundings.

    This is gorgeous, but it doesn’t look like a real wedding. It looks and sounds more like an inspiration shoot. So I’m confused why it’s listed under “real weddings”. Isn’t that a little misleading?

    Wow! This is probably the most beautiful shoot ive ever seen!
    I love the last line of the text:
    “Our ‘ode to Italy’ is intended to encourage couples to seek inspiration in the traditions and beauty of their surroundings.”

    So lovely everyone who contributed!

    What venue did you all use for this shoot? Are all the pictures from one location or are pictures of Italy mixed in?
