It’s not uncommon that a bride comes along who knows exactly what she wants her wedding to look like. But, for that original vision to be at once unique, timeless and take-your-breath-away stunning is a bit more rare.
Such was the case with Jessie and Jake, who knew from the get-go that they wanted a touch of Tuscany for their outdoor tented reception hosted at the bride’s childhood home in Canton, CT. Rolling hills? Check. Farmhouse and stable? Check. Dear horse named Patch, whose occasional whinny reminded us what a treat it is to celebrate al fresco? Check! Add to that a sprawling Sperry Tent, and the scene was set for an easy breezy summer night filled with love and charm.
When we think Italy, we think eating—everyone pulling up a chair to a rustic wooden table to share a special meal (and plenty of wine!) together. So we mixed long wooden tables and round tables, set in a provincial palette of taupe and dusty blue with floral pops of crimson, blush, golden yellow and green. Stems Flower Designs layered textures on the table, tucking fresh-picked fruits and vegetables amid airy table runners and oh-so-elegant, blue taper candles. Up above, Social Decor hung distressed chandeliers strewn with loose greens to add romance and just a bit of glow after dusk.
If we can say so ourselves, the final wedding design was utterly bellissima! And how cute are these two? Sigh!
