Italian Styled Shoot in the Lush Hills of Tuscany

Brianna Kozlarek / Tuesday April 24, 2018

Anybody else in the mood to plan a vacation? Us to, and Italy always makes it to the top of the list (the food, the WINE, the views, the culture, need we go on?) So of course we were instantly drawn to this dreamy Italian Styled Shoot in the lush hills of Tuscany. “Due to the time of year, I wanted to do a fall inspired shoot, filled with vibrant, deep hues of burgundy and gorgeous antique accents that complemented the villa’s history,” said Funmi Dosunmu of FMD Events. “The villa and the grounds are beautiful as is, so it didn’t take much to make it look even more stunning. The shoot begins with the bride, in a room full of stone and wood, getting her hair & make up done in before getting into her dress, while her groom-to-be gets ready in another suite. The first look is next, and we used a historic walkway in the villa that featured painted ceilings to capture the excitement.” Studio Fotografico Bacci captured this shoot in such a unique way, we adore these photos:


The Ceremony

“The highlight of the shoot was the circular floral structure that became the backdrop for an exquisite wedding ceremony. It overlooked an ancient fountain and those iconic Tuscan hills. We move on to couple photos, and the sparklers truly added a unique element to the shoot. Our stunning reception table featured low lush florals in hues of burgundy, wine, blush, and lovely laser cut custom menus. We also showcased delicious Malenchini Wine from the villa’s wine estate as it complemented the design so well. We loved the baroque candelabras and cute timepieces which added complexity to the design. Still we didn’t want to over do it with florals and decor, as the exquiste view was a showstopper. The cake was the perfect accompaniment to the table, with the beautiful covering floating in the wind. And of course, no wedding is complete without the groom carrying his new bride over the mantle, a sparkling start to their new lives together.”
