Italian Garden Inspired Styled Shoot

View More Photos

We are dreaming of this Italian inspired styled shoot! While you would think this session was shot in the countryside of Italy, it was actually done at The Paine Center in Wisconsin! The Paine offers stunning outdoor settings that is reminds us of a charming Italian village! With the gorgeous mansion, the picturesque walkways, and romantic pathways; this charming venue creates a beautiful background for this styled shoot! 


For the bridal dress, Heather with Wed and Willow chose a lace dress with a high neckline. The back of the dress reveals a dramatic open back with a side slit to show off her elegant shoes! This dress is absolutely stunning! The groom is dressed in a simple gray suit with a solid white button-down and tie that is handsome in any setting! The florals were a large abundance of greens and Eucalyptus, in order to not take away from the beauty of the gardens. Heather credits Branching and Co with making all the florals striking and yet subtle. 


Heather could not have done a better job with the tablescape! She styled the tables in two very different ways, and the results are amazing. The first setting was a charcuterie platter with breads, cheeses, and slices of salami, which ties in perfectly to the Italian theme! The second table was a gorgeous white tablecloth that featured toupe orange linens and a solid black plate. In keeping with the Italian vision, clay plates were used as table cards. Instead of opting to have a large centerpiece, Heather chose a simple clay vase with various greeneries as an accent! Sweet menu cards detailed the exquisite dining options, including featuring canoilis instead of the traditional wedding cake!


We are enchanted with this Italian themed styled shoot and will be dreaming of the rolling hills of Italian countryside!
