Inspired by the history, food, and the romance of Italy, Erika of Erika Parker Photography knew that she had to bring that inspiration to life during her recent trip to Florence, Italy. We absolutely love the natural beauty of the space at Villa Michaela and the romance of the gown from Il Barone Rosso.
Our favorite detail from this wedding style is the unique design of the reception florals. Jardin Divers created an understated table with pillar candles and a small arrangement, but it was accented by a mix of tassels and lamp shades hanging from the arbor, filled with greenery and white blooms suspended over the table. We love hanging floral features, but this really took it to a fun and creative level- it was such a beautiful element that provided a unique twist on a classic tablescape!
Chiara Sernesi of Weddings in Tuscany did a wonderful job in bringing together the details for this shoot. The understated design and the air of Italian romance are captured so beautifully. We hope you enjoy… now pardon us as we start planning our next trip to Italy!
We love how this inspiration focused on a major design feature and balanced it with other beautiful and understated details to really allow the overall style shine. By creating a major feature such as the hanging florals, the classic and romantic details that accented it were a perfect mix.
What do you think? Do you think you’d mix unexpected pieces like their lampshade details as a focal point in your reception design?
