Some people assume that having a destination wedding means a lot more work, money and effort. But, it doesn’t have to be that way. By picking an awe-inspiring destination, it’s easy for a couple to let the wedding’s surroundings do the talking – so to speak.
This is exactly what Jessica and Jordan did. They chose to say “I do” in the countryside of Tuscany, Italy. With such a breathtaking backdrop, the couple left the details minimal and simply highlighted the area’s natural beauty.
Jessica’s dress was basic at first glance, but if you look closely the feather detailing at the bottom of the dress gives it just enough pizzazz. She also took part in one of weddings’ biggest trends – colorful shoes. These navy silk confections are an eye-popping surprise. The antique looking brooch in her hair sets the tone for a romantic occasion and fits perfectly with the old-world setting.
The couple’s choice of venue was Villa Tuscany in Montespertoli, located in the Chianti region of Tuscany. Jessica and Jordan no doubt had plenty to toast and a delicious wine with which to do so. This couple perfected the simple, yet beautiful destination wedding. The reception centerpieces were made up of local Italian fauna including sunflowers and rustic colors of burnt orange and yellow.
The wedding was an intimate affair made up of the couple’s nearest and dearest. After the vows, everyone sat down to a delicious Italian dinner poolside with a beautiful view of the rolling hills of Tuscany. Table settings were natural and beautiful with springs of olive tree taking center stage.
Let this wedding prove that it doesn’t have to be all about tons of details. A select few which really complement and capture the beauty of your destination can be more than enough to ensure an unbelievable wedding that your loved ones will never forget.
