The recent {much appreciated} warm weather this week has gotten me in full spring mode!  I thought it was the perfect time to blog about a fun shoot we did last August.  This Italian Garden wedding editorial was full of lush greenery, two stunning Heidi Elnora gowns, cool wrap dresses from Molly Green, and a lovely  t u s c a n style home, La Tavolo.  My inspiration came from my love for alfresco dining.  There is something so intimate and special about enjoying a meal, outside, with the ones you love.  The shoot was featured on Elizabeth Anne Designs back in October and I am so excited to finally share it!

Brittany Benton Massey is a genius.  She created the perfect look on these lovely models.  And the simple greenery headpiece is to die for.  Kelly with Spindle Photography captured every detail perfectly and I could not be more thankful for such a talented friend.  Y’all, she rocks my socks off.   She is pretty awesome and so much fun to brainstorm with !!  We made DIY rosemary olive oil favors accompanied by an olive oil tasting bar.  How fun would it be to have an olive oil tasting bar at your wedding?  Jessica at Empress Stationery nailed it with the paper goods.  And Kelly’s calligraphy in walnut ink was the perfect touch.

Can we talk about the venue for a second.  Who knew there was an authentic tuscan style home a n y w h e r e in Birmingham?? Well for future reference, there is.  And its so w o n d e r f u l .
