Refreshing Tuscan Elopement and Honeymoon Inspiration
Ciao Bella! Italy has a special place in our hearts and we genuinely believe Tuscany is one of the most romantic regions in the world. Today we're drooling over this supremely elegant, ravishingly organic Tuscan editorial from the lens of Justina Bilodeau and styled by very talented Weddings by Silke. We love how this team used traditional Italian elements, mixed with creative and masterful modern styling, to embody the contemporary Italian wedding in today's world. Lots of fresh greenery, a loosely tousled coiffure, and a stunning gown by Italian designer Anna Fuca.... YES.
From the photographer, Justina Bilodeau: "For this inspiration shoot, our team wanted to convey not just a destination wedding, but some of the aspects of the Italian lifestyle that are such a draw to couples planning their events in Italy; so much of what is attractive about Italy to many people is the country's timelessly organic lifestyle - the unique architecture, serene landscapes, the robust flavors. We captured some beautiful boudoir shots of the bride during her getting ready, then take some pensive, private moments to write their vows before meeting on a hilltop to exchange them. Later they stroll through the village, treasuring the new feeling of being husband and wife. Finally, the couple adjourns to their celebration table, lovingly decorated with locally foraged florals, sumptuous linens and of course, overlooking the enchanting rolling slopes and valleys of Tuscany. After their intimate nuptials, our couple is shown spending time exploring an ancient Tuscan hill town with their market finds before returning to their cozy villa to prepare and enjoy a fresh meal together."
