Romantic Tuscany wedding at Villa Medicea di Lilliano
Tuscany wedding at Villa Medicea di Lilliano
Maria and Ben are one of the sweetest and most easy- going couples we assisted last year.
Their tremendous love for the Tuscan countryside led them to contact us about 1 year before the tentative date of their celebration to view some of the most beautiful Tuscany wedding venues Distinctive Italy offers.
They traveled all the way from Chicago, USA along with Ben’s parents, to choose their dream venue.
All the villas they visited have something in common: they were surrounded by the Tuscan hills and had breathtaking views over Florence and Tuscany in general.
In the end, they chose Villa Medicea di Lilliano, one of the most iconic Tuscan wedding villas near Florence.
Besides being one of the most enchanting properties in the region the villa still preserves a strong legacy from its glorious past and produces outstanding wines; well-known in Italy and abroad!
The final touch that helped our couple’s decision are the gorgeous luxury apartaments located inside the villa itself, in addition to those nearby. This allowed Maria and Ben to have family and close friends nearby. We took care of additional accommodation in Florence which is approximately 20 minutes driving distance from the venue.
The wedding day started with a very romantic and laughter filled ceremony conducted by one of the couple’s closest friends – which definitely added a personal and special touch to the moment. It was held on the rooftop terrace! The marvelous view over Florence were breathtaking and unforgettable.
After the ceremony, all the guests were served a rich aperitif in the villa gardens, with drinks and canapés. Meanwhile, the couple had their portrait session around the villa and surroundings – a perfect backdrop since the estate is surrounded by olive groves and glorious countryside!
At the end of the aperitif, the dinner was served outside! Maria and Ben really wanted to gift to their guests the feel of a Tuscan al fresco dinner: in the middle of the garden, a long wooden table, with string lights all around created a magical glow. Golden vintage tealight and tableware matched a rustic-yet-elegant vibe in the décor which included olive branches – Maria’s favourite, she even wanted it in her hairstyle after the ceremony?!
The night continued with a party inside the Villa’s Limonaia with DJ entertainment enriched by sax, drum and electric violin players. Guests loved it and danced the night away.
Maria and Ben had the most unforgettable day of their lives at their Villa Medici di Lilliano wedding!
