At a picturesque villa, situated in the rolling hills of Tuscany, Sophie and Valentin celebrated their wedding in classic Italian fashion – with a dinner al fresco, filled with freshly shaved prosciutto, olive oil favors, cheeses, and plenty of wine sourced from the venue itself.
“See this is exactly what I’ve imagined!” I’ve shown photos of Sophie & Valentin’s long, shared, farm table setting to my fiance numerous times since first viewing this gorgeous alfresco reception. Creating one long table tells guests they’re at “our table” and that we’re all one big family.
We imagine their guests felt particularly loved in the cool, Tuscan evening air.
The classic Italian scene had just the tinges of modern details: bundles of eucalyptus draped the tables and trendy signage while olive branches decorated an organic three-tiered cake. The little details added pops of contemporary notes to an otherwise delightfully vintage Tuscan affair.
