Italian wedding ideas in Texas
From Photography by Gema: You don’t need to travel a great distance to have a beautiful, romantic Italian themed wedding and The Villa Di Felicita, which means “Mansion of Happiness”, is one-of-kind. Anna & Brandon who recently were married at the Villa, posed for us and they were fabulous! The dress is the original gown that Anna wore down the aisle. Brandon wore a black tie suit provided by Tux & Prom 101 – Brides & Belles of Tyler.
I could of literally spent hours shooting all the beautiful floral arrangements by the talented, Barbara Tidwell, owner of La Tee Da Flowers. I love the champagne colored hand-tied “fresh-picked” bouquet that include a wide assortment of flowers and greenery. Tyler Tents & Events provided vibrant color + boho style glasses that creating a fun look!
yummy food + beautiful setting
Along with so many of the gorgeous details, their team created a beautiful romantic setting. Design by D’Anne created the cutest little tier cake adorned with prickly pears, succulents and fresh flowers that complimented the amazing food by The Azalea Food Company. Their appetizers of cheeses, stuffed peppers, fresh veggies were the a perfect hors d’oeuvre to start out the celebration. Pair it up with the perfect champagne and roast pecan crusted pork lion dinner, you will understand why they always get rave reviews! Anna & Brandon posed next to the exquisite vintage Europeans cars owned by Andrew Allen and all I can say is gorgeous! Superb!
