Here’s Vanessa Van Wieren of Alchemy Fine Events with a little scoop on the beautiful styling you can expect to see:

With inspirations of a Italian love story in mind, we created the vision of Terra e Mare, or Land and Sea for the Mike Larson Tuscany workshop. The story is this… a seaside beach beauty in love with a dapper polo player wed amidst the vineyards in Tuscany, bringing together the land and sea for a juxtaposition of styles.

Set against the backdrop of the rolling vineyards of Chianti in a Romanesque villa, Tenuta di San Giusto was the locale for this magical shoot designed with modern, classical, seaside and rustic elements.

The invitation to this intimate affair featured modern typography on a textured cardstock that was carefully nestled inside of a dove gray silk invitation box with a seashell adornment on top.

To combine the romantic and modern inspirations onto the tablescape leaves and greenery were painted an opaque white and mixed into arrangements of white roses, lilies and lisianthus alongside sea shells and neo-baroque candelabras.
