Uffizi Museum Florence engagement shoot | Photo by Stefano Santucci and Lucrezia Cosso | 100 Layer Cake

This Florence museum shoot has all you’d want in an e-sesh: rich history, candid moments, and photos that read like stories. Ali + Davide were happy to stumble upon Stefano Santucci & Lucrezia Cosso‘s photography while planning their Italy wedding from their New York home. With a countryside venue in mind for the big day, they chose iconic locations in the city center for their engagement.

Ali says, Some of the shots were taken at well known locations like the Ponte Vecchio, Galleria degli Uffizi, Piazza della Signoria, Loggia di Orcagna. Other shots were taken on quaint little side streets and hidden corners of the city that even Davide had never seen before; it was the perfect balance.

Planning a wedding in Davide’s hometown of Florence from afar has been tricky, which is why they were thrilled when planners Silvia & Francesca at SposiamoVi were able to arrange a meeting with the photographers while they were in town.

Stefano Santucci & Lucrezia Cosso‘s style of photography is so inventive.

Ali says, Stefano and Lucrezia are both very talented and take pictures that are both beautiful and unique. It’s almost as if they see the world a little differently from everyone else. I also do not have the words to describe what lovely people they are. Davide and I are both not incredibly comfortable in front of the camera and they made us feel very at ease.

Their proposal story:

 Davide and I got engaged on the island of Elba which is off the coast of Tuscany where Davide’s family has a summer home. Davide proposed to me on an old pier where he used to go fishing with his grandfather when he was a little boy.  It is a really special place for Davide and I am happy that we got to make a new memory there together.

The day after we got engaged we headed back to Florence to celebrate the birthday of Davide’s father, or so I thought. When I walked into the restaurant my mother, father and little sister were there to surprise me. Davide had arranged to have them fly out to Italy so that we could celebrate the engagement all together! We spent the entire week in Tuscany with both of our families. 

A + D are tying the knot in May. Congrats, guys!

Blush pink San Francisco wedding | Photo by Silvana Di Franco | Read more - http://www.100layercake.com/blog/?p=82742

D + R didn’t have an exact theme in mind while planning their wedding, just a simple mission: to show their guests everything they love most about San Francisco—both its natural beauty and city life too. They found a charming spot for the ceremony (more on that later), then searched for a beautiful ballroom that didn’t feel too expansive for 70. Sir Francis Drake did the trick.

Darah says, The ballroom is absolutely stunning with floor to ceiling windows along one wall and an ornate gilded ceiling. It had that old school San Francisco feel we were looking for. Rob and I were blown away when we walked into our reception and saw the room transformed with lighting and flowers and linens (and of course, filled with all of our closest friends and family).

Thanks to photog Silvana Di Franco for showing off all those details in the photos below:

From the bride…

Our ceremony was right across the golden gate bridge in a quaint historic landmark church atop a hill in the middle of a wildflower preserve overlooking the water. The views from the church are stunning and the location made us feel far removed from the hustle and bustle of the city. The church has this magical, peaceful quality about it and lent itself to a very intimate, emotional ceremony.

Aside from how beautiful the church is and the stunning views, what made it especially perfect is that it felt like neutral territory from a religious standpoint because it is a desecrated church that is now a historic landmark, not used for religious services anymore. Rob is Catholic and I am Jewish and it felt comfortable for both of our families and us.

Love these cookie escort cards. Not to mention the cake topper below… Quirky penguin motifs were scattered throughout, a little nod to Rob’s proposal in a penguin suit. (We’re guessing that one’s an epic story, too.)

Fall holiday bridal shower inspiration | Photo by  Jessica Burke | Read more - http://www.100layercake.com/blog/?p=82712

The holiday season is already so magical for a number of reasons, but getting engaged this time of year sure takes things up a notch. Talk about holiday cheer, right? When Rebekah of A & B Creative heard that friend and fellow creative Addison Searles of Twigss Floral Studio had gotten engaged, she, along with photog Jessica Burke + the rest of their talented crew, jumped at the chance to celebrate her.

Rebekah says, I am very fortunate to be a part of a small group of like-minded wedding creatives based in the Bay Area and recently one of our own got engaged in France. Addison has such great style and I wanted to reflect that in the classic invites and paper products, minimal design, and an autumnal palette. With (nearly) all the ladies of our group gathered in my Berkeley studio we showered Addison and ate delicious food and, obviously, talked about their future wedding!
