If you can’t get married in Italy, the next best thing is this Tuscan inspired wedding styled shoot. An edgy color palette of berry tones and black combine romantically with details reminiscent of the Italian countryside. Gold calligraphy and antique-inspired stationery invite guests to an al fresco courtyard set-up where red taper candles, matte black place settings and gold flatware from All Occasions Party Rentals adorned the tablescape. Rich red napkins, teal velvet ribbon, and jewel tone floral arrangements popped against cool light gray linens. Even the cake, which was created by Mediterra Bakehouse and featured naked chocolate layers, fresh figs, and berries, reminded me of the old world. What really makes this shoot striking though is a untraditional black and taupe dress that was paired with locally-made mixed metallic jewelry, deep ruby satin heels, and smokey makeup and hair done by GLOW Blotique. Combining a modern, avant garde vibe with classic Tuscan warmth and romance, this inspiring shoot was styled by A & L Events and captured by Wanderlust Images and Traveling Heart Productions. That’s amore.
From the stylist…
Our Tuscan Twilight Styled Shoot draws inspiration from the rich autumnal hues, seasonal fruits, and a hint of unconventional edge, paired with the romance of Tuscany’s charming countryside. Our bride is found in an intimate Italian courtyard in Pennsylvania, flooded with the ambience of subtle, yet enticing, candlelight. She sits stunningly in her untraditional black and taupe gown paired with unique mixed metal jewelry awaiting the marriage ceremony, while admiring the details of the enchanting evening. As she awaits, she is serenaded by the strumming of acoustic guitar and twirls to the soft music. Behind her, a decadent Mediterranean spread is flourishly displayed for when guests arrive to celebrate this one-of-a-kind love. The vibrant and lush floral palette brings the bold tablescape to life, contrasting the clean elegance of the noir matte dinner plates and textured gold flatware against the cool gray linen and touch of greenery. A colorful cake design comprised of striking old world elements and the modern composition of the watercolor stationery with foiled gold accents provide this styled shoot with dynamic elements sure to delight the eye. This Tuscan Twilight Styled Shoot was created to provoke feelings of warmth, endearment, intimacy, and avant-garde glamour attracting the romantic yet untraditional bride.
