Emotional Tuscany Elopement
With her pictures of an emotional Tuscany elopement Fine Art photographer D’Arcy Benincosa sweetens our day today.
There are meter-high pine trees and bushy olive trees that adorn the property. It belongs to an ivy-covered stone house, with red roof and small windows. In it, the bride and groom make the final preparations together for their big moment.
Just outside, in the garden of Villa Lavanda, the two meet again. She in a light blue wedding dress by Leanne Marshall, he in a midnight blue suit. Accompanied by violin music, they exchange their vows. Surrounded only by the unique nature of Tuscany – and her closest confidants.
A loving kiss and a rain of soft rose petals seal the vow and herald the informal part of the day. In the courtyard, decorated with fairy lights and terracotta pots, the dinner table is already waiting. Artfully calligraphed stationery by Julie Ha Calligraphy reveals, exquisite delicacies and delicious local wine are served.
There will be laughter, feasting and enjoyment. We discreetly retire and dismiss the wedding party into the night….
We can only imagine that Event Planner Rhiannon Bosse orchestrated and organized this special day to the complete satisfaction of the bride and groom. Anyway, we are thrilled by the skill of the wedding planner and that of the stunning photographer D’Arcy Benincosa, who makes us feel like we were part of this wonderful, intimate Tuscany wedding.
