Tuscan Farmhouse wedding venue ideas
We're continuing our Tuscan dream this week (did you see our ultimate Honeymoon Guide to Italy earlier this week?!) with a stunning bold and modern take on the destination wedding location of Tuscany. Our fave Tuscan venue Villa Montanare showcases the contemporary look and bright colored florals from Kaleb Norman James. We're hooked on the bride's Amsale gown complete with giant bow! Reminiscent of a Kate Spade look for sure...
From photographer Anna Gianfrate: "Inspired by the beautiful landscape of Tuscany, the color palette for the inspirational shoot is cucumber, buttercup, petal, velvet and merlot. Villa Montanare, a stand-alone farmhouse est.1640, it's a magical wedding venue perched on a hill overlooking a breathtaking panoramic view over the Val d’Esse and Val di Chiana Valley in Tuscany, Italy. It was the perfect setting for this fine art wedding inspirational shoot. For the bride we chose a silk faille fit-to-flare gown from Amsale with dramatic bow neckline and buttons down the back. For the groom, a warm linen suit from Linnèo. Escort cards that double as favors, with delicious olive oil made locally at the venue Villa Montanare are a keepsake that your guests will love. If you are getting married in Italy serving artisanal gelato to your guests is just a perfect way to embrace the Italian culture and have fun! This beautiful vintage gelato cart by Cassia Vetus served delicious gelato cones with green, white and red gelato like the Italian flag. We placed the table in the olive garden of Villa Montanare, perfect setting for Tuscan Al Fresco dining. For the tablescape the place settings included gold-rimmed marble chargers, floral with spring hues on mild neutral linens and mini individual cakes for each guest."
