italian villa inspired wedding

From Bonphotage Photography “When I stumbled across a real Italian venue in the heart of downtown Milwaukee, I knew this was a gem that needed to be captured in an elegant way! After all, while we all dream of a European wedding, it isn’t always an option, so why not bring Europe to you!? To create the magic, I teamed up with Regine Danielle Events for an anniversary shoot straight out of our Tuscan fantasies! One of our bride models, Sidney, wore a stunning backless Berta gown with immaculate beading while our other bride model, Seda, wore a pantsuit from Honey Bridal in the beginning of the day before changing into a Mira Zwillinger embroidered gown.”

“The flowers from Flowers of Fontana were out of this world (see their bouquets!?) Sidney carried a lush, asymmetrical bouquet with cream and amber tones while Seda carried a beautiful delicate bouquet of creams, blush and ivory flowers.

I absolutely cannot forget the hand-written calligraphy from Love Offering which literally stopped me in my tracks! The calligraphy suite was European-inspired with tons of texture for an effortlessly classic wedding aesthetic.”

“Every detail was accounted for, from the stunning diamond ring from Mia Donna displayed in a beautiful Mrs. Box to the glittery Louboutins to the blueberry details on the tablescape, and all of it was perfectly styled by Rachel of Golden Style Consulting. The table was adorned with blush and ivory luscious florals and set against an antique wall with original wood paneling.”

“Overlooking Lake Michigan, the Renaissance Garden at Villa Terrace recreates the classic elements of a 16th century Tuscan landscape while accommodating the vagaries of the Wisconsin climate. Rose Standish Nichols designed the original villa gardens in collaboration with the home’s architect David Adler. It was the perfect space for an Italian villa-inspired wedding!”
