foodie focused tuscan-inspired wedding

*editorial note – this shoot showcases two different bride models wearing various gowns, but one groom! I thought I’d throw that note in there to avoid any raised eyebrows 😉

From Sandra Nicole Designs “The inspiration for this shoot, came from the amazing area of Tuscany in Italy. It is a country that I have a connection with, its people, their history, the amazing art and extraordinary cuisine. When I am in Tuscany, every sense gets stimulated, sight, smell, touch, taste and sound!

We wanted the viewer to experience those same sensations, through amazing images. The venue lent itself for that inspiration. Today’s brides are a little more adventurous with their themes and decor, so we set our sights to inspire a bride to travel to Tuscany with us!”

From Sandra Nicole Designs – “Our goal was for the viewer to envision themselves in the endless green beautiful hills of Tuscany, with their winding roads, full of vineyards and wonderful olive trees. We could see the portrayal of Tuscany we created, being part of the enchanting medieval towns such as Sienna with their cobble stone streets and amazing stone structures.

After a long walk we imagined the viewer sipping a wonderful limoncello or aromatic glass of wine, indulging in a crisp piece of bread and cheese, or dipping their bread in the extraordinary olive oils they produce. What would a good meal be without, a delicious piece of cake, or pastry that not only is beautiful to the eye, but also a treat to your palate!?”

“Italy is also one of the capitals of the world of fashion, hence the use of beautifully designed wedding gowns and bridal accessories. Brides on their wedding day should be red carpet ready, with exquisite hair styles and make up. We hope we transported the viewer to Tuscany, with our very thoughtful vignettes, exquisite flowers and theme appropriate decor, captured beautifully by our wonderful photographer!”
