The Venue

What better place for an Italian styled shoot than the breathtaking Mount Palomar Winery in Temecula. The natural beauty of rolling vineyards and tall greenery was a romantic backdrop for the model bride and groom.Italian Styled Shoot 63Italian Styled Shoot 65Italian Styled Shoot 67

The Wardrobe

The groom was sharply dressed in a deep blue and black trimmed tuxedo from Friar Tux while the bride exuded romance with layers of lace and a dramatically long veil from Casablanca bridal. The brides’ beauty was highlighted with the makeup artistry of Domenica Beauty.Italian Styled Shoot 69Italian Styled Shoot 71Italian Styled Shoot 73Italian Styled Shoot 75Italian Styled Shoot 77

The Tablescape

Their first design image was based upon a traditional Italian tablescape showcasing a Tuscany inspired linen of blues and yellow. The collection was curated to accent these colors with a combination of different textures of terracotta, wicker and vintage crystal. The blue and white china and amber colored goblets from Cherished Rentals were a perfect fit for this design.

Tomatoes with basil brought color and a touch of the Mediterranean while The Pink Daffodils array of flowers of greenery, white and peach brought a soft and subtle beauty to the table.Italian Styled Shoot 85

Mismatched chairs and bench from Rickety Swank and Baker Party Rental gave more character to the family dinner dynamic. The final aspect to tie in the Italian family meal were the place cards and casual yet chic menu from Polkadot Weekend that cultivated the look with a baguette and sprig of rosemary.Italian Styled Shoot 87Italian Styled Shoot 89

The Sweetheart Table

To supplement the family inspired Italian look was this sweetheart table. The rustic yet chic blue and white linen by Luxe Linen provided the perfect tone for the tableware and terracotta filled lush floral design. They added an abundance of greenery to line the front of the table with the winery providing its beauty as a backdrop.Italian Styled Shoot 91 Italian Styled Shoot 93

The Flowing Beads of Balloons

For a fun twist to the traditional bride and groom photos, the entryway of the outdoor reception venue was lined with flowing beads of balloons in a variety of blush gold and peach tones designed by Balloonzilla. This provided a vibrant setting that accented the greenery and beautiful bridal bouquet while making a statement.Italian Styled Shoot 95 Italian Styled Shoot 97

Vintage Seating

Creating a way to tie in the amber and peach colors along with the soft white bridal design, we had a vintage seating area with gorgeous furniture from Temeculas’ local Rickety Swank.Italian Styled Shoot 99Italian Styled Shoot 101Italian Styled Shoot 103

The Cake

One of my favorite and final aspects of the shoot was the cake. Truly Scrumptious Cakes by Beth created a cake that was romantic with delicate flowers and ruffles with a touch of greenery, blue and gold leaf. To provide a setting worthy of this cake, we suspended it resting upon a wooden plank adorned with greens and candlelight.Italian Styled Shoot 105Italian Styled Shoot 107
