We are taken aback from the country style charm from this lovely Tuscany wedding! The couple exchanged vows in the gorgeous setting of Casa Cornacchi, a country style house located in picture perfect southern Tuscany. Absolutely romantic! And … the beautiful bride looked stunning in her one shoulder wedding dress was stunning with hand cut and architectured lace. Enjoy all the prettiness captured by Angelina Braccini!
The wedding photographer Angelica Braccini shared with us: “As soon as I arrived the day of the wedding one of the first things I noticed was the gown that Emily would wear seemed just made for her, a one-shoulder lace ivory dress. Then I was informed that the dress belonged to Emily’s best friend and that she had lent it to Emily. In that moment I realized that dress was more than just a dress, it was as if the essence of a great friendship. Share something as important as the wedding dress means that friendship is really special.The only personal touch Emily added to her gown an ivory swarovski belt”
Emily shared with us: “We wanted an intimate event with 30 of our closest family and friends, and Italy was one of our most favorites trips we’d taken together. So the wedding was held over three days at gorgeous, private villa in the Tuscan countryside, which allowed us to spend quality time with each and every person who made the trip from our hometown of Chicago and throughout the United States. We wanted it to feel relaxed, yet elegant…
“The villa grounds and the breathtaking view over the valley meant we barely needed to decorate a thing! We didn’t choose specific colors but tended to use wines and greens to reflect the authenticity of Italy’s favorite drink and the beautiful rolling hillsides… Our ceremony was very personal with readings from our mothers and notes written to each other. The soprano who sang Con Te Partiro as we walked down the aisle made it feel so quintessentially Italian!”, the bride mentioned.
Emily shared with us: “We also loved the single long, wooden reception table, decorated with a lace runner, flowers and lanterns. We will never forget the joy of seeing everyone around that one table, drinking, toasting, laughing and celebrating, while we looked out past the candles that twinkled from the trees and valley beyond. Even though there were a few drops of rain, the day couldn’t have been more romantic and perfect!
