Intimate Tuscan Villa Wedding

February 13, 2022

This American couple envisioned a long weekend in the Tuscan countryside with their closest loved ones to celebrate their families coming together. They prioritized time to really connect with their people during their intimate Tuscan villa wedding.

To bring their vision to life, they collaborated with their local planner, Sara Barni, from Floé Weddings and their venue, Villa il Pozzo, in Certaldo, Italy. Together, they created an elegant aesthetic that felt like a natural extension of the luxurious villa and rolling Tuscan hills. It was completed with traditional Italian touches like a live Tiramisu demonstration and bottles of the Villa’s in-house wine. To set the scene for their Italian nuptials, the couple hosted a pizza party in lieu of a traditional rehearsal dinner.
