Italian Garden Party Wedding Inspiration

Bellissima! Today’s Italian garden party wedding shoot, designed by Brittany Lott of Elle Affairs, has us transported to Tuscany! The inspiration behind the shoot was the classic Tuscan alfresco dining experience, which was brought to life with the setting of Birmingham, Alabama’s La Tavalo. The beautiful outdoor table setting featured loose greenery, rosemary accents and olive oil favors, and we just adore the idea of an olive oil tasting bar—what could be more authentically Italian? The mix of modern and traditional elements was brought to life in the invitation suite from Jessica Stalkner at Empress Stationery and chic wrap bridesmaids dresses from Molly Green. And we are in love with the classic elegance of the gowns from Heidi Elnora. There’s so many details—and stunning images from Spindle Photography—to swoon over right here in the gallery!

  3. Beautiful rustic location, with a classic villa and beautiful models and fantastic floral arrangements. I was particular fond of the simple floral headpiece, which fit the design perfectly. Great shot of the figs, no coincidence the color also worked into the scheme immaculately well!
