Elegant Tuscan Wedding Inspiration

Tuscan Inspiration

It’s probably safe to say that most of us have an ongoing love affair with Tuscany…or at least the idea of it for those who haven’t been. But the thought of Tuscany in the spring – when stunning roses, peonies, daisies, ranunculus and wisteria literally cover the ground + grow like weeds – is enough to cause serious heart palpitations, day dreams and major distractions.

The planners + designers at Le Jour du Oui teamed up with Janna of Warmphoto to design an editorial that captures that feeling – of Tuscany in the spring. They were inspired by a wonderful Italian garden on the grounds of their venue (Villa Agape in Florence) with its cypress and olive trees that seemed to create the perfect backdrop for their bride and groom. They chose romantic dresses, soft and ethereal the fabrics and timeless, classic hair + makeup. The goal was to craft a scene that was chic, but not too formal, using a color palette that was soft, romantic + oh-so-elegant.

On the venue, Janna says, We chose the amazing venue Villa Agape with large garden full of flowers and blossom trees. Here there are two amazing magnolia trees that, together with the jasmin, covers the whole boundary wall, making the air sweet and scented. This landscape offers the visitors a delightful and attractive view.

Handmade Bohemian Ranch Wedding: Kaitlynd + Joel

Arroyo Grande Wedding

Sometimes uniformity can be so overrated, and today’s handmade San Luis Obispo ranch wedding, captured by Danielle Poff Photography, really backs up that idea! When asked about the inspiration for their day, Kaitlynd + Joel simply said, Everything was mismatched and really easy going. We don’t like to match and we didn’t want it to be a traditional-looking wedding, we just wanted it to be fun and low stress! A pretty great wedding philosophy, don’t you think? So, mismatched bridesmaid dresses, juxtaposing decor + hand-picked design elements were all a go, and it resulted in day where these two – and their laid-back personalities – could really shine!

…but we think we like their dresses even better! Kaitlynd’s ladies each picked a dress that they loved from retailers like Anthropologie, Free PeopleUrban Outfitters + Nordstrom Rack. If you’re considering doing the same thing for your wedding, share this post with your bridesmaids! We have a fun shopping guide to get a similar look below :)

Wine Country Vow Renewal: Natalee + Jonathan

The Vintage Ranch

Natalee + Jonathan met when they were 15 years old and were married 10 years ago, with a simple vow exchange at their local courthouse. Throughout the past decade, they often dreamed of the wedding they wished they could have had, but it wasn’t until recently – having the resources and abilities to make it a reality – that they were able to finally host their gorgeous vow renewal at The Vintage Ranch in Paso Robles, California.

Natalee + Jonathan decided to walk down the aisle together (after all, they have done everything together for the last 15 years!) and Natalee crafted all the stunning floral arrangements and bouquets. It was the sweetest event, where the focus could really be on love, and we’re so glad that photog, Lisa Mallory, chose to send it our way!
