Between the old-world feel from the elegant decor planned by Heather Benge and the atmosphere at Bella Collina, this elegant wedding editorial will transport you right to Italy. Hosted by Styled Shoots Across America, this styled shoot was a dream come true to photograph and I’m thrilled to be sharing it with you today. If you’re looking for a classic and Italian inspired wedding day, look no further than this styled shoot!!

Italian Inspired Tablescape at Bella Collina

The tablescape was draped in flowers from Blomst Floral Design, paired with a place setting containing a light blue and white menu card – finished off with a gold wax seal. Every detail was carefully chosen to evoke the Italian countryside. To complete the reception inspiration, Lubelle’s Cakes provided three incredible blue and white cakes for the celebration. They were displayed on a vintage gold dresser, which is so fun. I love the idea of using unique pieces like that on a wedding day!

Romantic Bridal Look

Our beautiful bridal model, Mel, wore a long-sleeved wedding gown with a romantic bodice from Eleanor’s Bridal. With a classic up-do, she was an absolute vision! She carried a fun bouquet with pops of blue, white, and yellow, carrying the color palette through every inch of our shoot. Her dress had a beautiful scooped neckline and fun puffed up sleeves that carried down her arm. The details of this gown were so unique and romantic! Mel looked absolutely incredible!! 

I’m still obsessed with all of the details for this gorgeous styled shoot at Bella Collina and I hope you will be, too. With the muted blue and yellow details, those stunning cakes, and two beautiful models… I could have photographed here all day long! Congrats to all of the incredible vendors who brought this to life! Enjoy a little peek into more of this styled shoot.
