Lavender Fields Forever: Provence-Inspired Elopement in Italy

Lavender Field Elopement Inspiration
In a time where full fledged travel isn’t an option, we really do have to rely on our own imaginations + creativity to be ‘transported.’ And the creators behind today’s inspiration did just that! Although set in Bologna, Italy, this lavender field wedding embodies the dreamy romance of Provence.

With event design from Daniela Battistini and the planning of Marilena Zambelli, we have a peek into the vision: Before the lockdown, I planned a trip to Provence to see the blooming lavender fields, but we couldn’t due to the travel ban. Instead, we decided to find a piece of Provence in Italy, which helped us to dream again and be outdoors surrounded by beauty.

This sweet couple should have tied the knot in 2020, but plans changed (as they do). Luckily, in an Italian lavender field, they still had a pretty magical day. Giulia Pini captures the inspiration:
