How to have a Family Style Tuscan Destination Wedding
Dreaming of olive grove Tuscan wedding style but not sure how to approach your destination wedding style? Our Fine Art Curation members A Very Beloved Wedding helped bride Bruna (from Brazil) and groom David (from the UK) this Summer create their dream Tuscany wedding whilst making it easy for them to plan from afar. Bruna and David met two years ago, and started a beautiful long-distance relationship after being brought together due to “the strong laws of attraction” (according to the groom!). Both share the same love and complement each other due to their cultural and character differences in a very unique way. They have each other and their whole life in common, that is why their relationship is unusual, unique, amusing, and cozy.
From Bruna & David: "We are very down to earth and aimed for a non-too traditional stiff wedding, but a familiar, Tuscan, sharing and simple, natural atmosphere. We only used earthy natural colors, lots of wood, green and natural fabrics. We incorporated a lot of greens and plants and let the floral design and décor reflect the inconsistencies found in nature, including a lot of love for details. We used natural ropes for the bouquet, the name tags on the napkins and places a big leave underneath the glass charger plates. Wherever you looked, there was green and wood. The lines of the furniture and décor underlined the simplicity we wanted to keep in the event. We decided for a family style dinner and for skipping the traditional wedding cake. We incorporated Brazilian accents in the green color, the Bossa Nova music and also the sweets (that replaced the wedding cake). These sweets are a Brazilian wedding tradition called Bem Casados. Not wrapped in the traditional white and shiny paper, but in a natural earthy tone paper with a natural rope, to keep the design consistent. The overall mood was earthy, simple, natural, fun, romantic, warm, rhythmic, intimate, diverse and happy."
Bruna and David’s wedding is all about two families coming from very different cultures and finding something in common during this intimate, simple, natural once in a lifetime experience: love love love, sharing a once in a lifetime and memorable experience with their loved ones. An intimate simple.
