When starting to plan their wedding day, Cassie and Mark decided to have an intimate wedding with just their family and best friends in Tuscany, Italy. They had both studied abroad in Italy, so they knew without a doubt that's where they wanted to have their multi-day wedding. They chose Guardastelle, a vineyard and winery, for their venue because everyone travelling to celebrate with them could stay there. They and their guests had the entire property to themselves which made the event - planned by Tuscan Wedding Events and captured by Lauren Mihae Photography and Kindly Weddings - feel so intimate and personal. Keep scrolling to hear even more about how their multi-day wedding went down!
The first night was Cassie and Mark's welcome night during which they and their guests did a wine tasting on site followed by toasts. The wedding day was the day after, and every single detail was thoughtfully chosen by Cassie and Mark. Cassie is a wedding photographer herself, so she knew exactly what she wanted, down to her makeup by Barbara Corso and the incredible stationery by Birdsong Bespoke! Everything from the florals by Puscina Flowers to the reception dinner table design was absolute perfection. She even asked her girlfriends to wear colors that "felt like a sunset in Tuscany," and the couple was sure to have both gnocchi and gelato as part of their wedding menu by Class Ricevimenti and Gelati dei Molini to honor their two cats named Gnocchi and Gelato!
After dinner, Cassie and Mark had an in-person mille-feuille demonstration and featured bar drinks inspired by Cassie's mom. After dancing in front of just the right amount of sparklers, they ended their evening with a private last dance to music by Andrea Ribas DJ, followed by a super fun jump into the pool!
The next day, Cassie and Mark hosted a casual pool party at that same pool, and on the final day, everyone spent time exploring more of the Tuscan countryside. After all of these events, they put their wedding clothes from Galia Lahav (courtesy of Ivory Bridal Atelier) and Indochino back on and drove to the rolling hills and cypress trees of Tuscany, where they ended their wedding week watching the most beautiful, dynamic sunset imaginable. It was truly a wedding straight out of a movie!
