Ultimate wedding & party destination since 2009

Tuscan Villa wedding: Alyse + Ryan

February 6, 2017

How sweet is this photo Lisa Poggi captured of Alyse + Ryan on their big day at at Monteverdi Tuscany? Alyse actually wore her mom’s dress that didn’t even need any alterations. During their four months of planning a destination wedding with only seven guests, their biggest was to just let go of the idea of a traditional wedding to make way for what they really wanted it to be: intimate, beautiful, and Tuscan. Exclusive Italy Weddings helped them check all those boxes and more…

When it came to adding colors, A + R wanted a natural palette that would complement the historic architecture of Monteverdi and its surroundings. See more on their Pinterest.

Aren’t the florals Tommaso of La Rosa Canina Firenze throughout the ceremony space just the dreamiest ever?!

Alyse says, Monteverdi Tuscany is a perfect blend of ancient architecture and modern, luxurious design. Organic, gourmet food, and the stunning views across the V’al Orcia topped it off. We can’t say enough about our experience at Monteverdi, which was made even more spectacular by the warmth and professionalism of the management and staff who provided our wedding party world class service throughout our stay.

One of their very fave memories was the ceremony, where each of their family members came to the altar and read one of the 7 blessings. Afterward, they showered them with white rose petals. So sweet.

Everyone stayed at the Villa Muri Antichi for the week, and they also traveled to Florence for a few days before heading there. Next up, they honeymooned along the Amalfi Coast and then up to Lake Como. Dream trip!

Congratulations, A + R!
