The essence of Italy comes alive at this inspiration shoot in California. Just one look at the incredible imagery captured by Ditto Dianto has us feeling like we’ve been transported to Tuscany. All of the carefully curated details were planned and designed by Thomas Bui Lifestyle who created a day filled with effortless elegance. Romantic floral design by Heather Cassady-Martin is not to be missed, see it all inside the full gallery.
The villa is reminiscent of an Italian estate and provides a picturesque backdrop for your wedding day. The outdoor areas at Villa Montalvo are perfect for a romantic ceremony or reception. The Italianate Garden, for example, features a lovely fountain, flower beds, and a pergola that can be adorned with flowers and greenery. The Oval Garden is another lovely option, with its manicured hedges, ornamental trees, and sweeping views of the mountains. When it comes to an Italian-inspired wedding, bright and vibrant colors are key. Think white, deep greens, and warm golds. These colors can be incorporated into your decor, floral arrangements, and even your attire.
Heather Cassady-Martin, the floral designer, exceeded expectations with her exceptional work on the floral arrangements for the verdant greens bouquet and centerpieces, which seamlessly complemented the elegant tabletop design crafted by Hensley Event Resources. Thomas Bui Lifestyle designed and coordinated all the details and the results are absolutely magical.
From endless portraits locations, and stunning bridal and night gowns from Atelier Modiste, safe to say that there are endless possibilities for a beautiful Italian inspired wedding in Villa Montalvo. In conclusion, an Italian-inspired wedding at Villa Montalvo is the perfect way to add a touch of romance and elegance to your special day. By incorporating bright and vibrant colours, delicious Italian cuisine, and traditional Italian elements into your wedding, you and your guests will be transported to the heart of Tuscany.
