Travel-Lovers Had a Tuscan Villa Wedding with International Elements
by Brynlee Handy December 3
There are so many picturesque international elements within this Tuscan villa wedding captured by Sophie Epton Photography! Celeste and David’s story is like one from a romance novel – they met one Saturday night at a Flamenco show in Madrid, Spain, after both just moving to the country! After some chatting about their hometowns of London and Austin, the rest was history. Almost five years later, they tied the knot in Celeste’s home city, and we must say their entire day is picture perfect from start to finish! Loot Rentals provide the perfect party pieces for your particular style, and we love these timeless, mahogany chiavari chairs and elegant gilded décor that elevate these outdoor reception scenes. Ivory blooms in all shapes and sizes by Stems Floral Design + Event Styling add romance and make the mood feel so timeless and luxe, and we love the breezy European feel this altar has. Sweet Treets Bakery created a show-stopping four-tier cake for Celeste and David with a world map on top – a sweet nod to the couple’s love of travel! Also, in lieu of a dessert bar, Austin Catering provided an over-the-top cheese and fruit spread to incorporate another European wedding tradition. Everyone loved it! Celeste says out of all the day’s details, though, the guests were her favorite. “It was truly an international affair as we had family and friends from all over the globe present for our big day, representing seven different countries,” Celeste said. “Having our loved ones from all over the world there to witness our commitment to one another was absolutely incredible, especially now given how much has changed over the course of a year, but also because it illustrated the genuine fortune we had in finding each other while following our shared dream of living abroad.” Tissues, please! There is no shortage of romance to the brim, plus so many sweet international details in this Tuscan villa wedding! Read on for a note from the bride about one of her favorite wedding vendors. Cheers to Celeste and David!

From the bride on her most helpful wedding vendor: “Austin Catering provided an AMAZING meal (guests still talk about it and I still crave the gnocchis!). Kristen Stephens was always so communicative and patient with us as we navigated through our order.”
