You know it’s a good week when two floral crowns crop up on the 100lc blog. First, in yesterday’s gorg lilac shoot full of French-floral-goodness, and now in these images by photog Elisabetta Marzetti. We’re thinking we may need to craft a few ourselves this weekend… you know, just ‘cause. Let’s head to Italy this morning, shall we?

Elisabetta says, We laid a typical Italian smorgasbords buffet, surrounded by rosemary, sage and other aromatics, on a 19th century bread-bin. A variety of cheeses and jams, salami, sausages, walnuts, olive oil, wine, fresh vegetables and various types of bread.

As dessert we prepared whipped cream sponge cakes, decorated with flowers and fruits. Every true Italian wedding would also provide little favors and a small pouch of confetti for the guests. We chose little pads embroidered with the bridegrooms’ initials, and organized a special nook for this. The wedding bands were laid on a little handmade lace cushion.

The location: A 12th century ex-monastery in historic Umbria, in central Italy. Looks like quite the place to hang out for the day, we think.

They used an antique door with pewter vases, crystal cloches, and romantic flatware that contrasted beautifully with the rustic wood. And the florals: David Austin roses, pale pink peonies, white and coral peonies, viburnum, scilla, scabiosa, buttercup

Some seriously good-looking florals.

So how much are flights to Italy again?!

Calligraphy workshop by LH Calligraphy | Photo by Shalyn Nelson of Love | Read more - http://www.100layercake.com/blog/?p=76681

You might’ve guessed already, buuut we’re all about that calligraphy. Those romantic loops and curls just sweeping from one letter to the next… what better way to send a letter or make an announcement? As it turns out, the art of calligraphy is not just for artists alone, anyone can give it a go (but a good teacher helps). Laura Hooper Calligraphy shares her talents with people all around the US and even in Toronto, and recently put on a lovely workshop just outside of Austin, designed by Katy of Without Wax, Katy.

Thanks to Shalyn Nelson of Love, The Nelsons for the photo recap:

Katy says, The Union on Eighth is a stunner all on its own—no question about it. But when it just so happens to be that time of year when both coral charm peonies and café au lait dahlias are in season, it makes for a wake-me-up-I-must-be-dreaming environment that you just have to see for yourself! 100% agreed!

Earthy wedding inspiration at The Wayfare Chapel | Photo by Brian Tropiano Photo | Read more - http://www.100layercake.com/blog/?p=76635

Craving a to-die-for view and a few stunning details this morning? Sure ya are! And with a venue overlooking the peninsula in Palos Verdes, CA, you can’t beat a sweet scene like this. That’s why photographer Brian Tropiano + Two B Events vowed to compliment the setting, rather than try to complete it. The deets: For our Wayfarer’s Chapel shoot in beautiful Palos Verdes we wanted to create something simple yet elegant and whimsical that any bride could pull off.

The team used an existing bench as a sweetheart table to look over the cliffs and ocean below…. So romantic, right?
