Natalie and Tyler got engaged in an orange grove in Rome, so Amanda Burell with White Ivy Events decided to bring Italy to their guests for their autumn wedding. "We knew we wanted to bring the details of their story into the design," says Burell. She contracted Champagne Press to design a Tuscan-inspired invitation suite, and Kindred Blooms got to work on constructing an orange garden in the venue. "This install was so well-executed, even the bride thought the 'orange trees' were real!" says Burrell. The rich food spread for the evening included authentic Italian cheeses and a tuxedo pistachio cake from Farina Baking Co. Guests sipped aperol spritzes and enjoyed live music from a guitarist who transported them to the streets of Tuscany.
