Londoners, Lindsay and Ryan, carefully chose Castillo Vicarello, in Tuscany to play host to their nearest and dearest for their destination wedding. With a venue this amazing, they aimed for a natural glamour that let the setting speak for itself and still managed to integrate details that spoke to their modern sensibilities and add a little sparkle. Guests were welcomed to the ceremony with cocktails invented by a mixologist friend, Lindsay walked down the aisle to a gentle acoustic rock n roll track mixed by another friend, votives swirled around the lawn during dinner and dancing, and the disco was ignited with a confetti bomb.

thanks everyone! caitlin, the glasses were from the rental company there in Florence…have you tried rental companies yet? there are also speciality tabletop rental companies (like We Set the Table, and Casa de Perrin) that might be a good place to check. good luck!
