Today we have a breathtaking wedding sent to us by Nadine from Weddings in Tuscany. Nadine helped to plan Lisa and John’s destination Tuscany wedding and was happy to share the details with us!
Nadine: “When we first started communicating with the gorgeous laid-back couple, Lisa and John, we knew instantly that their wedding was going to be incredibly fun and we were so excited to get started on the planning. Lisa wanted a relaxed, intimate, natural and fun feel to her wedding with all inspiration to come from the natural beauty of the Tuscan landscape. They chose a rustic stone farmhouse in the Chianti as their location for their wedding and accommodations for themselves and their guests. The Chianti area has so much natural beauty, only a little adornment was needed. All the flowers were native to the area and all the food was market fresh, local and organic and the wine was made at the farmhouse using the grapes of the surrounding vineyard.”
Lisa and John had a civil ceremony which took place in the town hall of the hilltop town of Carmignano. They also had a symbolic ceremony among the olive groves of the farmhouse where the reception was held.
Nadine: “Lisa and her bridesmaids carried bright sunflowers in full bloom, chocolate gerberas with a mix of native foliage, stems wrapped with a chestnut silk ribbon, and the ceremony florals continued the profusion of colorful sunflowers, mixed with coral roses and native foliage in cone shaped baskets. The table centerpieces were simple and elegant vases filled with sunflowers, coral roses and lavender.”
Lisa and John were even able to sneak over to Florence for a quick photo session at Piazalle Michelangelo! … They couldn’t pass up the opportunity to get these gorgeous shots!
After taking pictures in Florence, the couple headed back to the Terrace La Borri Farmhouse for the reception.
Congratulations Lisa and John! Thanks Nadine for sharing this beautiful wedding with us!!
