Tuscan villa wedding venue

Whimsical details defined the day, including giant, handcrafted and moveable flowers

Becky and Sheryl decided to celebrate their elopement at Villa Pazzi al Parugiano, one of the most prestigious and historic villas in Tuscany and located near Florence. This venue was truly a place where authenticity and classicism come together. Since they both love vivid colors, every detail of their wedding was designed to emphasize the brightness of the color palette, resulting in a balanced and well-defined eye-catching event in every respect. The couple's flowers came out better than they ever imagined thanks to the mastery of Juri Franceshi, flower designer for I Fiori di Nadia who created the most stunning floral arrangements for each of their special moments. The couple also included wonderful giant flowers created by Gaia Pietrella - Giant Flower Artist to decorate the photo booth corner, as well as a tableau de mariage, made by the talented calligrapher Laura Mazzetti of The Wedding Letters.
