Italian Garden Party Wedding Inspiration
Bellissima! Today’s Italian garden party wedding shoot, designed byÂ Brittany Lott of Elle Affairs, has us transported to Tuscany!

The beautiful outdoor table setting featured loose greenery, rosemary accents and olive oil favors, and we just adore the idea of an olive oil tasting barâ€”what could be more authentically Italian? The mix of modern and traditional elements was brought to life in the invitation suite fromÂ Jessica Stalkner at Empress Stationery and chic wrap bridesmaids dresses fromÂ Molly Green. And we are in love with the classic elegance of the gowns fromÂ Heidi Elnora. There’s so many detailsâ€”and stunning images fromÂ Spindle Photographyâ€”to swoon over right here in the gallery!
