Living Coral Wedding Inspiration in the Tuscan Hills

Photography - Greg Finck

Overlooking the rolling vineyards of the stunning Castello di Velona in Tuscany, this luxurious and elegant wedding editorial was filled with inspiring details for a dreamy garden wedding – be it in Italy or closer to home. From the lush florals in a palette of coral and peach, to the understated but oh so lovely ceremony set up and stunning tablescape, it is the epitome of romance and definitely one for the Pinterest boards!

Before we take a look at all of the divine details, a few words from Daniela of The Tuscan Wedding……“This luxurious and elegant styled photoshoot was impeccably captured by Greg Finck . We began the day with our stationary set up created by The Wedding Letters that incorporated a simple yet overwhelmingly elegant design. Grey, peach and white stationary with complementing ribbon and floral accents added to the vision of this photoshoot perfectly.

Next was the ceremony that was created in the villa’s seemingly endless rolling Tuscan countryside vineyards. The design featured a one-of-a-kind archway that was covered with enhancing greenery, coral and peach florals, and romantic lanterns on either side. A bed of loose flower petals constructed the aisle within the vineyard that correlated with the bridal bouquet exquisitely created by Il Giardino delle Fate. A mixture of peonies, English roses, scabiosas, and carnations with an accent branch of peach toned orchids established a simple yet strikingly unique bouquet.

The bride’s Eddie gown was from French designer Rime Arodaky’s runway wedding collection, and featured a mesh floral bodice design, open back, and a crisp white skirt with a flowing train. Her hair and makeup, done by  Cherie Spisso, added to this effortless beauty with a relaxed and glamorous up do with a soft, smokey eye. The groom was dressed in an elegant, deep navy tailored suite with a matching tie, white undershirt, and coral floral boutonniere.

The dinner area overlooked a beautiful valley at sunset on the side of the castle. A vertical gold frame was placed in the center of the table with hanging crystal accents and small glass candle globes that created a romantic atmosphere. Greenery and blush toned orchids were placed on top of the frame, followed by a bedding of lush florals streamed along the base, with candles scattered throughout.

Melanie Secciani from the Tuscan Wedding Cakes created an edible work of art with a base tier of hand strung Swarovski crystals that continued the virtually floating feel of the design. Two tiers followed, with romantically placed branches of orchids streaming down towards the crystal base. A similar rod of glistening crystals followed, with the final tier placed on top with more accent orchids.

It was an exquisite set up that was brought to life by the talent and collaboration of all vendors involved during this wonderful photoshoot. “
