When that Italian destination wedding just isn’t in the budget, bring Italy to you. Or just have Jelli from peplum events style your wedding at the Tuscan inspired, Bella Collina, in Montverde, FL. She nailed every detail in this shoot, and could have easily fooled us. The inspiration for it all actually came from her grandmother, who was born and raised in Italy. She incorporated all the things she remembered her grandmother sharing with her. The beautiful desserts, the food, the stories about her country…
Have you guys seen Before Midnight? It takes place in Greece, but doesn’t this table give off the vibe from that dinner party they had in the film?
That table runner made of olive branches is beautiful!
This toasted meringue cake is to die for!
We hope to see more work from these folks. Such pretty inspiration, right?

This Monday just got a whole lot more pretty! The Fall 2013 Real Weddings Special Issue of Martha Stewart Weddings is on newsstands now and available for iPad. This is one of our favorite issues to cuddle up to and read first thing in the morning. And this time around we’re particularly excited to swoon over the pages because our dear friend, Jenna, of Love Jenna Calligraphy did all the beautiful script featured throughout, for the wedding of talented photographer, Corbin Gurkin. And, one of our favorite photographers, Elizabeth Messina, captured all the prettiness.
We’ve been dying to see her wedding for a year now! And it’s a gorgeous one, guys. Here’s a little sneaky peek…

The bridal bouquet shot has always been one of our favorites. We have an entire Pinterest board dedicated for just that – pretty florals bundled together, usually tied by lace, a meaningful pendant, or a fancy, fun ribbon. You don’t even have to go with florals. We’ve seen some fab bouquets made of vintage brooches, and even paper flowers. So if a soft and romantic look is what you’re going for, this bouquet from Ruby Reds Floral is one to take note of!
Here’s the recipe: White O’hara garden roses, Wildeve garden roses, pink pierus japonica, white ranunculus, white scabiosa, white astrantia, lamb’s ear, dusty miller, white astilbe and tuberose.
Make sure to pop into the gallery below for more pretty from this shoot!
