Elegant bucolic Tuscany wedding: Olga + Sende

categories Real Weddings

“You don’t alter Vera to fit you, you alter yourself to fit into Vera”. You’ve heard that phrase, yes? We’re throwing that out the door! Sorry, Vera. I think we can all agree that Olga owns it in this Vera Wang number. She looks darling and radiant. The Italian backdrop doesn’t hurt one bit either. Clara Boatto, designer and planner of this gorgeous fête used gray, sage, and olive with a selection of white flowers, grapes, silver candelabra, white cushions and throws to create a reception that was bucolic elegance with a trendy touch. Half of what we love so much about this wedding, hands down, are the photographs captured by Lisa Poggi. The other half – everything.

How’s this for a romantic dinner? Light gray Tuscan chairs paired with silver vintage cutlery, white porcelain, and those candelabras.
