There is something just a little bit extra about European weddings... when those weddings fall into the ever stunning country of Italy, well let's just say I am that much more smitten right from the start! Today's ultra dreamy styled wedding comes to us by way of Vincigliata Castle, a sprawling estate consisting of an old world stone castle complete with enchanting gardens at every turn. Italian floral and decor designer Francesca Piras, of Franci's Flowers Wedding Design, is a European Storyboard Wedding favorite, crafting wonderfully chic glam weddings & arrangements that drip with luxury & style. At the helm of this of romantic spring fete, the team blended the haunting medieval architecture of the castle with that of billowy draped tents, tall centerpieces of ivory blooms & pillar candles in green. In a nod to old world royalty, gold plates serve as a focal point & beautifully bridge the two elegant worlds. Our bride & groom both posses an gentle chic style in the form of a sleek tux & form fitting gown with an open back. All together this styled shoot is the perfect blend of a time long ago come modern made gorgeously romantic!

Dream estate wedding...check! Stunning bride & handsome groom....check! A gorgeous tented wedding under the stars...check check!! Our lovely couple, Jaime Prater & Chad Mitchell, created a day of elegance & surrounded themselves with their loved ones at the gorgeous Brantwyn Estate. Guests were directed to a secret garden like outdoor setting, where our couple exchanged their vows of love forever, then moving on to a chandelier filled tented wedding celebration. Jaime personally selected all the little touches from the perfect china patterns to the hand made Mr. Right, Mrs. Always Right signs! Our sweet couple even had a charity table, showing just how sweet & genuine of a couple they truly are. Strong pinks & statement blues punctuated this day gone night wedding were Jaime & Chad celebrated their love!
This sweet mid-fall wedding features nature's favorite color palette strong with oranges, reds & touches of deep purples. The couple, Melissa Thomason & Phillip Chambless, actually found the charming Clifton Inn the very weekend that they got engaged! For the feel of the wedding, the couple hoped for a classic wedding with outdoor touches, featuring a tree side coffee station, lawn games & even a Bourbon Bar! As a final touch, the couple invited guests to help them celebrate in their big moment by joining in on a late night sparkler send off!
Little known fact, believe it or not, I grew up on a farm. I have a special kinship & draw to lovely farm weddings as a result. Today's wedding has some pretty wonderful details but its things that you dont see on paper that really make this wedding so lovely! Firstly, check out that sky at the ceremony! While it makes for some amazing lighting in the photographs, I really applaud the guests for holding strong facing some pretty ammonius skies! Additionally this wedding was a big family affair with everyone helping out to make for such a wonderful day! The day came together beautifully, & the bride looks gorgeous and I love the back of her dress!
