A magical villa in Tyler, East Texas sets the stage for the ultimate Tuscan inspired wedding styled shoot. The enchanting VILLA DI FELICITA, which means "Mansion of Happiness" in Italian, is surrounded by a plethora of trees, rose bushes, terraces and stone walls and these beautiful images by LAUREN MARKS PHOTOGRAPHY transport us for a hot minute to places we can currently only dream of.
The colour palette that was chosen, based on hints of muted blues, dusty pink and gold, played with so many little details specifically including the bridal gown by CLAIRE PETTIBONE, shoes by wedding shoe designer BELLA BELLE SHOES, vow books from WEDDING STORY WRITER, the antique ring and ring box, stationery by LETTERING BY GRG, and the table linen and flatware by BELLA ACCENTO.
The floral arrangements, created by the very talented ROOT & BLOOM, were designed to preserve the authentic and typical mood of the venue. All flowers were carefully chosen keeping in mind the idea of very soft and flowing arrays, from the ceremony to the table setting, giving the overall design an organic touch including flowers branches, antique gold vases and glass votive candle holders for the reception table. Both the ceremony and reception were held under a beautiful portico where the floral designer created a dazzling display along the fireplace mantle that was embraced in very rich in organic cream flowers and greenery.
LETTERING BY GRG created a unique invitation suite using handmade paper, both in ivory and dusty pink, with the unique touch of a hand painted rendering of the Villa. It all came together with so much beauty and delicacy.
