We’re daydreaming of a romantic Italian getaway in the present day, because of this Tuscany wedding ceremony from GATHER Events that includes dreamy photos by For The Love Of It. Olivia, a Meals Community producer, and her man Daniel selected Villa La Massa in Florence for his or her wedding ceremony weekend, balancing their trendy minimalist type with the venue’s outdated world grandeur. They settled on a design of heat neutrals and terracotta tones, with a splash of black and gold to carry a black tie really feel. Playful private components (like nods to the couple’s pup and their love of Harry Potter), introduced all the things along with a relaxed magnificence no visitor would quickly neglect!
Olivia and Daniel have been all about offering a tremendous visitor expertise. Their 110 family and friends have been welcomed to city with native treats (Dario Cecchini salts, Leoni candies, prosecco, olive oil and extra) and helpful requirements (akin to the lovable restoration kits with “hangover” in Italian) in totes with commissioned leather-based tassels and terracotta beads. Then, they loved a pizza and gelato welcome dinner to kick off the multi-day affair.
The Marriage ceremony Venue
GATHER Events tells us, Olivia Annacone and Daniel Cisic needed a chic, but relaxed, wedding ceremony in Florence that introduced collectively their nearest and dearest in a villa that offered luxurious and comfort to their visitors who had traveled thus far to be there. Villa La Massa’s proximity to town middle and an expert tennis membership have been a giant draw for the couple’s household and pals because the visitor invitees included distinguished folks from the tennis world together with Olivia’s professional tennis coach father Paul Annacone, Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal. The Renaissance period 5 star Medici villa, on the banks of the Arno River, boasts a secluded environment and a star studded historical past (most notably as the placement of David Bowie and Iman’s nuptials).
The Marriage ceremony Trend
Olivia wore the Zoe gown from Vagabond, which contains a straight neckline bustier with a fitted crepe skirt and pleated plisse tulle removable sleeves. They really took inspiration from the pleats and mimicked them within the glass ridged vessels on the tabletop at their reception. Olivia paired the gown together with her one thing blue, Amina Muaddi crystal embellished Begum mules. As for the bridal celebration, bridesmaids wore champagne-hued clothes from Shona Joy, Show Me Your Mumu, and Fame and Partners, whereas the groom and groomsmen wore basic tuxedos and loafers.
Their ceremony happened among the many venue’s huge backyard area with a view of the Florentine hills, olive grove, and fruit bushes. It featured lush grounded floral installations by Britlyn Simone Floral that appeared to blur the transition between grass and blooms. The couple learn from their customized vow books inscribed a Dumbledore quote.
Tuscany’s lush panorama and heat terracotta hues have been infused into the colour palette and floral design. Customized Florentine marble paper within the wedding ceremony colours from a neighborhood artist was used all through your entire design from the stationery to the signage. The couple met at a fancy dress celebration the place she was dressed as Voldemort, so we needed to offer a nod to this a part of their story. On their wedding ceremony day the reception corridor with its medieval vaulted ceiling and huge stone fire was full of a whole lot of Erik & Ester taper candles, a la Hogwarts. From the cocktail serviette to the cake topper, the couple’s beloved fur child Zeke made a number of appearances all through the night time with out ever having to depart Los Angeles.
After the ceremony, visitors loved the couple’s signature cocktails poolside, which have been an quaint and an espresso martini. As soon as inside, an escort card set up with terracotta shot glasses stuffed with limoncello (yum!) guided them to their tables.
Dinner was catered by the villa’s Michelin-star restaurant, adopted by speeches together with shock video messages from visitors Federer and Nadal who couldn’t be there in-person. Dessert included a cake from a neighborhood baker who made a copycat model of Momofuku Milk Bar’s birthday cake topped with their pup, together with a dessert bar stuffed with conventional Italian treats.
For the celebration, Olivia turned into a brief bridal gown stuffed with ostrich feathers and an identical purse by Cult Gaia. She paired it with enjoyable customized Nikes to bounce the night time away.
The following day, the couple hosted a “restoration swim brunch” with brunch, bubbles, beer… and an enormous bowl of Advil. Sure please!
What a considerate multi-day affair! Congrats to Olivia + Daniel!
