Vintage Wedding in Tuscany - Ivy and Dmitry
Autumn in Tuscany.......one of our favorite seasons in our favorite region. Ivy and Dmitry started planning their wedding in Chianti a year ago, when they contacted us regarding this Enchanted Hamlet. This is undoubtedly one of our top wedding venues in Tuscany.
The setting is so reflective of the region. The colours of the day were amazing.......rich earth tones, a dramatic skyline and the rolling October landscapes. The undisputed romance and beauty of Chianti was enjoyed by all!
Ivy and Dmitry chose a vintage theme for their destination wedding in Italy. Every detail was carefully thought through, even for guests' outfits. It worked perfectly with the Hamlet's setting. The bride selected a simple but very elegant colour palette of white and green and chose to highlight the natural gifts of the countryside such as olive and rosemary.
Family and friends stayed in the hamlet's apartments and suites enjoying a welcome dinner and other special activities we arranged.
On the wedding day, the ceremony was celebrated in the panoramic gardens overlooking the Chianti hills. Afterwards a rich aperitif hour with cocktails and Prosecco champagne was served allowing guests to mingle and enjoy their surroundings. The highlight was the stunning horseshoe imperial table in the main courtyard of the Hamlet.......where a multi course meal was served as the sun set. Special lighting created a magical effect! The wedding cake was made live in front of guests.......with some assistance from the younger guests:). It was accompanied by a dessert buffet!
Finally music and dancing continued until late for a very happy celebration! As Dmitry wrote us: "The wedding was fantastic!"
