Romance & the Tuscan countryside go hand-in-hand, effortlessly.
It’s hard to imagine any wedding taking place in the rolling hills & vineyards of Italy’s Toscana not exuding bounds of amor, but that does not discount how in awe we are over the natural romance in this stunning destination wedding.
As a photographer myself I know much of our enchantment comes from the light & airy, masterfully captured photographs of Olga Makarova. It’s no secret that Olga’s photographs & films are favorites of ours here at Bridal Musings. Having featured much of her prior work & hired her to take our own Florence honeymoon photos, I know first hand she’s as beautiful of a person inside and out as her images. That is to say, were you to find yourself marrying or honeymooning in Tuscany, you’ll want to bring her along.
Yanti & Daniel’s Florence wedding featured all that we’ve come to love from Tuscan weddings. Romantic olive groves, rustic villas, an alfresco reception and that delicious Italian millefoglie wedding cake.
Days following the wedding, the newlywed couple scooted off to the Tuscan countryside for stunning honeymoon photos at one of Instagram & the wedding world’s most beloved venues: Castel Monastero.
The couple was totally in love with wooden rectangular tables but at the same time, they wanted to have all their guests close to them. So, their wedding planner Caterina Weddings designed a table layout creating a sort of semi-circle – like a virtual embrace. This allowed all guests to see and enjoy the couple’s company throughout the dinner.
