Let us transport ourselves overseas this morning to beautiful Tuscany, which provided the romantic backdrop to Emily and Jared’s wedding. Their whole day was an intimate and loving celebration filled with wine coloured blooms and lace. I so love the classical styling, Emily’s stunning bridal look and the candlelit reception.

Thanks so much to Angelica Braccini for sharing these divine images.

From the couple | We wanted an intimate event with 30 of our closest family and friends, and Italy was one of our most favorites trips we’d taken together. So the wedding was held over three days at gorgeous, private villa in the Tuscan countryside, which allowed us to spend quality time with each and every person who made the trip from our hometown of Chicago and throughout the United States. We wanted it to feel relaxed, yet elegant.

The villa grounds and the breathtaking view over the valley meant we barely needed to decorate a thing! We didn’t choose specific colors but tended to use wines and greens to reflect the authenticity of Italy’s favorite drink and the beautiful rolling hillsides. Emily’s “something borrowed” was her lace one-shouldered wedding dress, which came from one of her closest friends. It was such a wonderful thing to share and the hope is to pass it along to another someday. Our ceremony was very personal with readings from our mothers and notes written to each other. The soprano who sang Con Te Partiro as we walked down the aisle made it feel so quintessentially Italian!

We also loved the single long, wooden reception table, decorated with a lace runner, flowers and lanterns. We will never forget the joy of seeing everyone around that one table, drinking, toasting, laughing and celebrating, while we looked out past the candles that twinkled from the trees and valley beyond. Even though there were a few drops of rain, the day couldn’t have been more romantic and perfect!
