Tuscan Destination Wedding with an Adorable Gelato Cart

You know that we all have a penchant for everything related to Tuscan weddings.

And while the Italian wedding industry (and the wedding industry worldwide) is troubled by the uncertainty of canceled weddings, travel interruptions and general health and safety during the this year wedding season, the best thing we can do at home is to celebrate and support our many vendors

Whether it’s sharing our favorite Italian wedding venues, browsing all the beautiful and sophisticated Italian bridal editorials or getting inspired by all the beautiful real weddings in Italy, we often present bridal reflections-like this beautiful ethereal Tuscan wedding presented today.

Photographed by the wedding photographers and creatively designed by the Italian wedding planners Weddinglam, this Italian wedding represents everything we love about Italy: the ice cream truck 😉

Planning

“When I met Annika and Johannes, I saw a brilliant couple with a young and sparkling spirit, so I thought of a creative project for them that could highlight the classic beauty of Tuscany, but that would suit their sophisticated tastes.

I wanted to add a contemporary element that does not suffocate or weigh down, but reinforces the naturalness and classicism of a landscape that is already important in itself, so I thought of acrylic. So I wanted to create a contrast in the middle of the old and the modern, in the middle of softness and rigidity, in the middle of richness and transparency ‘”Tuscany framed with glass””

The place of the ceremony

It all started with a “Ciao!”these pretty bags welcomed the guests who attended a ceremony in German in the Church of Buggiano Castle. The celebrant, with the historical dress of the 1500s and the original baroque furniture, has been preserved and has given way to a precious nave with spontaneous nature and large chandeliers. Floating silk ribbons framed the excursion of the newlyweds, who organized a procession of violin music to the reception venue from a picturesque golf cart.”

Photography

It was a total coincidence: we were on a road trip through Italy to find the wedding venues (which was so much fun, by the way!) and Villa Sermolli was the initial place we visited. In the hotel lobby, we found a photo book by our photographers Angelika & Artur. The two got married in the same place a few years earlier. The photos were so beautiful that we were immediately intrigued. After visiting their website and blog, we had a phone call with them and it was clear to us that they were perfect for our wedding.

Angelika and Artur capture a wedding in a very natural and devoted way. They have a keen eye for detail and capture all the positive emotions of the day. In the end, we could not have made a superior choice. The value they brought went far beyond their work as a photographer. We couldn’t be happier.

Favorite moments and details

Favorite moment: walk the 300 m from the church to Villa Sermolli in a festively decorated golf cart with a violinist right behind us and our guests who follow us and play the music down the hill. The music was touching and gave us a few minutes to ourselves right after the ceremony.

Favorite Details: The details really make all the difference! We loved every detail of Greta’s decoration: unpretentious but beautiful floral decoration in an already rich garden combined with golden elements, elegant and modern Plexiglass details and laser cutouts and romantic lights in the dark.

The place of reception

“The charming Villa Sermolli, a historic residence of the fifteenth century, represents the Italian past: the stone sculptures, the lemon garden and the panoramic terrace. It was the perfect environment that inspired my project. The Terrace welcomed a delicious welcome drink with a delicious ice cream corner, which was then arranged at the bottom of the reception in the Italian garden with imperial and round tables around the central fountain. The Palette played with neutral tones such as light gray, sage green and white and romantic golden notes.”

Flowers and decor

“For the flowers, we chose olive green and eucalyptus with white and ivory flowers: peonies, English roses, dahlias, a timeless classic. Including meters and meters of light gray silk as a table runner, large candelabra with pointed candles and pretty glass frames for table numbers.

But here are the most important details completely handmade:

Plexiglass panels like the wedding image “our favorite people” are hung on a green wall to accentuate your white writing. The menus, also made of Plexiglass, were based on light gray handmade paper with gold foil details. (I love creating these freehand details!) Reserved spaces in laser-cut gold-plated wood that the guests jealously kept with them.”

Tips for other couples

It was very important for me to feel comfortable and in tune with the main team that surrounded me on the wedding day, such as the wedding planner, photographers, stylist, etc. we were always eager to meet them, and as a bride, I was happy to have these lovely people around me on the big day. It really helped me to let go and trust that everything will be fine.

Also: the music really makes all the difference – Our band had people dancing all night.

it’s a honeymoon

Just after the wedding, we were still a few days for our “Minimoon” in Italy – in Tuscany, Positano and Capri. Beautiful weather, good food, the best cuisine and friendly people – what more could you ask for?! We really enjoyed spending a few days on a private boat ride on the Amalfi coast, and if you ever make it to Capri, you have to go to the Caesar Augustus Hotel to have a drink on your Terrace – the sunsets are magical.
