You've Gotta See This Oh-So-Tuscan Venue (Plus 6 Other Details to Steal)

This Tuscan-inspired shoot, straight out of Florida, will have you dreaming of Italy!
by Jaclyn Saumell

The venue Bella Collina was modeled after an Italian villa, so it's especially fitting that this styled shoot would bring Tuscany to life. Table 6 Productions complemented the venue's gorgeous stone walls and reflection pool with more than a few lush accents. Belle Fleur Studio designed an overflowing tablescape of fresh greenery, tulips, roses and sunflowers, and each place setting was met with a neutral menu to maintain a simple yet impactful look. And talk about creative! Each escort card was handwritten on a small tag then tied to apothecary vases filled with green beans for a rustic touch. Another must-see detail? The wedding cake! Elise's Pieces designed a four-tier confection inspired by the European countryside. Andi Diamond Photography captured these detail and much more below. (Warning: they will have you dreaming of Italy!)

    Surrounded by arborvitae trees, Bella Collina's reflection pool is the perfect backdrop for any cocktail hour or intimate reception! After their wedding, Elizabeth Dy and Darryl Parulan recreated their celebration by taking part in this styled shoot. Elizabeth donned a stunning white ball gown from Malindy Elene Bridal Boutique with a beaded bodice and illusion neckline while Michelle Renee The Studio styled her hair into an elegant updo. Darryl complemented her look with a gray tuxedo.

  2. This Bright Bouquet with Tropical Yellow Proteas

    Belle Fleur Studio accented the rustic, Italian venue with a lush bouquet. Tropical yellow proteas were placed in a fun arrangement of orange orchids, yellow roses, purple tulips and lush greenery as a simple neutral ribbon wrapped around its stems.

  3. These Natural Bean Escort Cards

    Table 6 Productions put an unexpected twist on the escort cards. Each name was attached to an apothecary vase filled with little green beans for a natural touch.

  4. This Lush Natural Tablescape with Roses, Sunflowers and Dahlias

    Belle Fleur Studio decorated the family-style table with a lush design you'll want to steal. Orange roses, sunflowers and red tulips were nestled within bunches of greenery along the center as tall white candle sticks surrounded the arrangement.

  5. This Neutral Menu Card with a Rustic Background and Vine Design

    Rather than covering the exposed-wood table with fabric, Kate Ryan Linens topped each place setting with a bright orange napkin. A neutral menu with a vine design also accented each gold and olive charger.

  6. This Colorful Rose and Tulip Centerpiece

    Looking for another centerpiece design? Belle Fleur Studio also accented a round table along the venue's terrace with a low arrangement of red tulips, red calla lilies, orange roses and sunflowers.

  7. This Rustic Four-Tier Fondant Wedding Cake

    Every layer of this wedding cake is covered with natural details. Elise's Pieces used neutral fondant to create a ruffle, textured floral and layered design on each layer as large leaves and greenery accented its base. Orange and white roses, peach garden roses and orange orchids also topped the confection. We can't get over how gorgeous it is!
