Getting married in April

April can be a perfect month to get married in Tuscany…take a look at the elegant wedding of Avery and Mark which took place in Val d’Orcia on April 2019!

The weather was perfect. It was a sunny and mild day with a little breeze which made the ceremony under the sun more enjoyable.

The couple was lucky enough to have the mother of the bride taking care of the planning. She’s been so meticulous and precise that we wanted to hire her 🙂

Super Tuscan Wedding Planners was involved for the decision of vendors and mostly the coordination on site on the two-days wedding event.

Avery got ready in the panoramic suite on top of the hotel with her six bridesmaids and her mother.

Between toasts and friendly confidences, she went for natural smoky eyes to emphasize her green eyes and brown hair.

The gown was a romantic lace column dress perfect for Avery’s body shape. It was all decorated with Swarovsky and embellished with a long train.

The uniqueness of this wedding was the flowers: the bride asked for Gardenias flowers and Stephanotis vines. They are elegant and unique and they smell so good! 

Mark was simply elegant and charming in his black suit. His look was very classy and classic without a waistcoat and the striped tie contrasting the white shirt.

Before the first look he was so emotional and impatient  to see his beautiful bride to be.

The ceremony was set up on the amazing terrace of Castello di Velona.

An abundance of white roses petals was scattered naturally down the length of the aisle.

The arch so rich and full of flowers was the perfect frame for the Val d’Orcia while the Tuscan mode wooden chairs revoked the country style of Tuscany. It was a perfect match between elegance and country atmosphere.

The ceremony was a blessing performed by a close family friend.

It was touching and so special because the couples before being declared husband & wife, wore the crowns (made of mother of pearl Stephanotis flowers) belonged to the bride’s maternal grandparents.

The crowns were used on their 1948 marrigae ceremony.

Bride and groom exited down the aisle first and were followed by the wedding party and parents.

The set up of the tables was luxurious and elegant. Silver candelabras with white taper candles and vines and profuse florals cascading down to the table from the top of the candelabra, ivory table wear and liberty-style chargers with gold and green decoration. The glasses gave a touch of abundance and justice to the majestic wines served during dinner.

The cake was made by a local cake designer. It was a chocolate cake with cioccolato nocciola filling, fondant icing and gardenia flowers made of sugar.

The mother and the father of the bride surprised the couple and all the guests  with a firework display with white and gold fireworks only, choreographed to Puccini’s “O mio babbino caro“.

After the long touching day, it was finally time to dance with a Tuscan band and enjoy the rest of the night!
