Italian Villa in California Wedding Ideas
Thinking of an Italian style to your wedding but with California weather? Today's inspiration is straight from Villa Del Sol D'oro in California and I love how all you need to do is add some long reception tables with family style eating and a cathedral length veil and voila - Italian style wedding with warm tones full of romance...
From Rebecca Theresa Photography: "Villa Del Sol D'oro is the perfect venue for California couples looking for an Italian wedding without having to fly to Italy. Constructed in 1928, it was modeled after the famous Villa Colazzi near Florence which was rumored to have been designed by Michaelangelo. The picturesque terraces and gardens of the property made for a stunning minimalistic inspiration shoot in the heart of Sierra Madre, California. The natural tones of the tuscan villa paired with warm sunset hues made for the perfect color combination full of romance and whimsy which was enhanced by the softness and airiness of film."
"The save-the-date and invitation were both created by Olive Saint Lily who creates semi-custom and bespoke wedding invitations and paper featuring a neutral and minimalistic design. It was styled with sunset-toned loose blooms, berries, and boutionierres by the amazingly talented florist, Florals By Maher Haroun.
Our bride was pampered with hair and makeup by The Face of Beauty makeup artists and featured a vintage-inspired filigree headpiece handmade by Maria Elena Headpieces. She wore a simply stunning and elegant dress by Pronovias featuring a detachable cape from Mon Amie Bridal Salon. No inspiration shoot is complete without the always gorgeous Bella Belle Shoes whose pattern matched perfect with our Pronovias dress."
