Last September, Andrew and I (and a tiny little Lachlan in my belly!) had the pleasure of travelling to Italy to be part of an intimate and beautiful Tuscany celebration. You can read much more about our adventure over here. Our sweet friends Shalyn and Drew of Love, The Nelsons met us in Italy and were on hand to capture the wedding to sheer perfection. It’s hard to explain in words how stunning and sacred this couple’s wedding was but the film images from the big day certainly help do justice thanks to Shay and Drew’s talented eye.
I don’t have many words to express my gratefulness for the opportunity we had to travel halfway across the world to do what we love, so I’ll say this: Christine and Dagan, thank you for welcoming us into your family and letting us serve you in such a pivotal time of your lives. We wish you all of the happiness and love in your journey as newlyweds. And Shay and Drew, we love travelling the world making beautiful things and seeing all of the world’s wonders with you. Let’s do it again soon with our baby boys in tow.
You can see more of this celebration on Martha Stewart Weddings. Enjoy!
This staircase was a favorite place of mine. Andrew snapped a photo of me there actually!
Tackling a wedding and designing florals across the pond was initially a challenge but with the help of sweet Sofia (I love you, friend!) and some foraging skills on Andy and my behalf we were able to pull together some really beautiful designs. Some of the items I was able to freely forage included viburnum berries, garden roses, rosemary, and of course, olive branches. I cannot wait to return to Italy again next August (!) for another special wedding during the same time of year these items are in season!
What a magical celebration! Please see below for a full list of vendors. Xoxo
