This Villa Antonia wedding is the perfect inspiration for wanderlust-driven couple. With the future of international travel as uncertain as ever, more and more U.S. couples are moving their destination wedding celebrations stateside — but that doesn’t mean they have to lose their global inspiration when hosting their wedding at home. We conceptualized a trend-setting Tuscan wedding in the heart of Texas Hill Country, just 30 minutes outside of Austin.
We combined a Mediterranean vibe with a more trendy color palette and details — something we see modern couples opting for as they strive to make their celebrations as unique, but timeless as possible.
The bride also featured a detachable skirt from her dress as you’ll see in the transition from the ceremony to the Rolls Royce- another emerging trend we’re starting to see from couples who want to be able to move and have fun at their receptions.
The shoot also featured a custom hand-painted champagne bottle + a Vogue-inspired live event painter, mimicking the en plein air artists in Europe.
Last, but certainly not least, with the help of an incredible florist, we also worked hard to showcase FIVE different ways to utilize the same set of florals – perfect for couples looking to be more sustainable financially and environmentally. You’ll see:
1) A lush asymmetrical ceremony backdrop
2) Two different statement portrait moments for the couple
3) An elevated dessert vignette
4) Venues existing features being accentuated (like fountains, staircase, archways, etc.)
5) Up-leveling the reception tables with head table end caps — allllll from the same ceremony florals.
