If we’re talking about diversity in nature, the architecture, the way of life and cuisine, then you’ll be scrolling through this Italian Wedding all day long. This colorful styled shoot is inspired by Ruth Terrero’s experience in Italy. She chose the color Lavender as it reminds her of the gorgeous lavender fields in Tuscany. There are so many things to love about this styled shoot but the details in the Lavender themed décor and the modern Italian wardrobe took my breath away. Everything was just so well put-together. The bouquet included white astible, Juliet garden rose, white spray rose, purple freesia, white ranunculus, Italian ruscus, purple alstroemeria and lavender of course! The historic home museum designed by James Gamble Rogers II with its mission revival architectural style served as the perfect location for this styled shoot. She wanted the décor to incorporate both classic and modern details to represent the millennial bride. These are some of the noteworthy ones but you can find more inspiration by going through Ruth Terrero Photography’s beautiful photos. Enjoy!
We’re All About the Details!
The dress by Eddy K Italia is a jaw-dropping mermaid style champagne dress embellished with a beaded neck and back that’s elegant and graceful! The groom donned a classic bow tie tuxedo in black. Whitney showed off a bold look with dark lip color and a stunning updo for the first half of the shoot and a more relaxed look with her hair down for the second half.
The aubergine furniture with its luxurious plum fabric and curved legs was a showstopper! The sweetheart table was simple and gorgeous, the colored candles and gold flatware went together beautifully. And the guitar speaks to the musician couples.
The Modern Touch
For the modern touch, they had a beautiful marble cake with lavender and gold details, geode, and a lucite and geometric invitation suite. The 1947 Cadillac light cream colored convertible with its breathtaking wine red interior served as the perfect getaway ride for the couple! And no Italian wedding is complete without gelato so we had to have a gelato cart!
