Whitney & Shaun’s destination wedding with just 35 guests is a total dream, set against the backdrop of an Italian villa right out of a movie! The couple started dating at 16, and during their 10 years together they studied in Florence, where they fell in love with all things Italian. That’s why they chose Tuscany for their big day, let’s have a look at details.

The ceremony and reception were held at the same location, Borgo Stomenanno. The ceremony was held at the end of the olive grove in front of a brick pillar in the middle of a semi circle of cypress trees. The cocktail hour was held the front of the venue in the Italian gardens. The dinner portion was held at the back of the villa under a canopy of trees. The wooden table featured a long garland of greenery with vases of flowers and candles on vintage holders mixed in. The dancing portion was held by the pool.

The couple wanted some glamorous elements which included the luxurious villa, black tie attire, and chandeliers in the trees, but they were also adamant on choosing the humble, simple, delicious food and creating a close family atmosphere indicative of Tuscany.

There were two wedding cakes: one was the traditional Italian wedding cake, millefoglie, which is layers of puff pastry, chantilly cream, and fresh fruit. There was also a tiered naked cake, and then gelato and an assortment of Italian cookies around midnight during the dancing portion of the evening.
