We are transported to a beautiful Tuscan villa today thanks to Houston wedding photographer MARNI WISHART and Tuscany wedding planner Chiara Sernesi of WEDDINGS IN TUSCANY. This rich and enchanting inspiration has a fairytale quality to it that we can only dream of being a part of.

"Drenched in the summer Tuscan sunlight, the abundant gardens and villa of the historical PARCO PUCCINI-BONACCHI in the hills of Tuscany provide a rich tableau for an afternoon elopement. Located in Pistoia, this enchanted venue has a wonderful mix of two different architectural styles: the gothic, displayed in the fortress; and the neo-classical, in the Pantheon. A verdant garden pathway connects the two structures and is the perfect place for a quiet walk together for our couple.

The interior of the fortress displays elaborate and richly coloured fresco painted walls and ceilings, gilded mirrors and furnishings with a strong contrast in light and dark adding drama to the the table design which is embellished by overflowing floral centerpieces and deeply toned fruit creating a sumptuous feeling. Even the embroidered bodice of the bride's 
CATHYTELLE gown echo the motifs of the interior design and the deep champagne tones shift from daylight to candlelight interiors."

A big thank you to Houston wedding photographer MARNI WISHART for sharing this Italian wedding inspiration with us.
