The next edition of the Destination Styling Series is an ode to young love where I had the pleasure of planning and creating a stunning editorial with the amazingly talented, Jenny Quicksall. Jenny contacted me nearly a year in advance and together we dreamed this destination engagement and
wedding inspiration editorial in Tuscany, Italy.
As we worked together to design the shoot, we decided it was important we find a real couple to truly capture that authentic, beautiful picture of young love and romance. We found a gorgeous couple and had a wonderful time creating this brilliant image of regal and passionate love. Jenny had a dream to shoot in the rolling hills of Tuscany, and with that taste of wanderlust, we headed into the hillside and began our engagement shoot in the Tuscan countryside at the iconic Cappella della Madonna di Vitaleta. It was just breathtaking, centuries old and it truly helped to capture that passionate romance we envisioned for their engagement shoot. As seen on Style Me Pretty.
We then headed to Siena, for a touch of that Tuscan regality to the Castello di Celsa. We went with two timeless looks for the couple, the first created a sense of regal sophistication while still creating this beautiful, modern princess style for our bride. She wore an Ersa Atelier gown with amazing detailing and gorgeous layers of tulle to encapsulate that royal, princess feel in the photos with ornate accessories by Lindsay Marie Design.
The second look played with young love and admittedly had a little bit of a sexy vibe. Our bride wore a gown by Inbal Dror and had this romantic, fairy look about her, while the groom wore a more classic, modern and masculine tux. The look was all together timeless and romantic and thanks to the perfect setting, unique, antique detailing and florals by Dario Benvenuti there was also a taste of rustic, regal history. Together in the gardens on the castle grounds, the couple created this stunning visual that tied in beautifully with their engagement shoot as they gazed together across the rolling hills of Tuscany surrounding them.
