Italian Inspired June Wedding

I have to say, I seriously love my couples. Alysha and Chris put so much love into every little detail of their wedding, making it such a special day. They are both inspired by Italian landscapes, so that became the drawing point for the overall wedding design. The groom hand painted each invitation envelop one by one with a Tuscan Landscape scene, and his sister calligraphed each menu and place card by hand, so each was slightly unique. I brought in all the best June flowers. Mock orange, peonies, garden roses, smoke bush, honeysuckle and blueberries. For their mountain ceremony, we drew from the wisteria in Italy, which you seem to see taking over a building around every corner in the spring. I draped their arch in romantic greenery and hanging white flowers to mimic the look of wisteria, then arranged garden roses climbing and "growing" up one side for a natural, overgrown look. The reception at the Grand America was classically inspired with tables draped in low garland and candles, and giant antique urns filled with olive and smoke bush. It was such a beautiful day to celebrate the love of these two.
