This wedding inspiration lifted our spirits today, and we think it’ll lift yours as well! All of these photos are so simple yet unique, reflecting the beautiful details of this shoot so wonderfully. Also, make sure that you notice the lemons that the florist included in the table arrangements. This simple touch is a beautiful gateway into the spring season coming up! We appreciate these florals so much and we cannot wait for you to see them! Happy Scrolling! From the Planner: In recent years, we’ve sensed a growing trend of couples looking to bring a sense of cultural perspective to their wedding day. Whether it’s building a menu around the regional cuisine of their heritage or including design elements from a locale that’s dear to their hearts, we believe there are endless ways to bring a sense of “place” to the details in a way that’s both tasteful and fun. For this particular shoot, we wanted to provide artistic and elevated inspiration for couples looking to showcase their Italian ties. Rather than repeat the familiar rustic aesthetic, we sought to showcase Tuscan-inspired moments—think olive branches and citrus elements—reimagined with an entirely fresh take.
From the Planner: The Italianate Garden is located on the west side of The Gardens at Elm Bank with the remarkable manor house overlooking its lush garden beds. Designed by the Olmsted brothers between 1914 and 1928, this property is one of only two Italianate gardens open to the public in Massachusetts. To begin the design process, we envisioned our tablescape featuring an artfully styled collection of delicate florals, lush greenery, vibrant citrus, textured linens, and scalloped charger plates. Lemons became the primary citrus element of our Tuscan inspiration, which was carried through nearly every aspect of the design. Cake can play a very important role in a cohesive design story, and Nancy of Silver Whisk Bake Shop created an exquisite work of art to showcase that very idea. She custom-designed a narrow, four-tier cake adorned with illustrated lemons, leaves, and vines. The middle of the cake features a scroll design similar to the classic Italian ceramics. The scroll design and the illustrated lemons and greenery were all a delicate touch, and the muted color tones gave us that sense of old-world charm. Of course, Italians are known for their incredible style, and we knew fashion would play a significant role.
