Graham & Sarah

Size: 100 guests
Season: Summer
Style: Rustic, bohemian, al fresco

When Graham and Sarah came to us to plan the wedding of their dreams, they wanted something rustic and beautiful amid the Tuscan landscape. It was an honor for White Emotion Events to plan the special union of this American bride and British groom, who live together in London. They welcomed their guests with a typical Tuscan trattoria dinner in Florence the night before the big day, and then it was on to their magical venue.


Just outside of Florence, the couple chose the incomparable Villa Medicea di Lilliano to celebrate their wedding — known as one of the top 10 destination wedding venues in Italy. The incredible space consists of a 60-hectare Wine Estate dating back to the 11th century. With a backdrop of the spectacular Chianti countryside, the Villa offers beautifully restored accommodations, various activities for guests and the couple before or after your event, and plenty of outdoor areas to celebrate every moment of an unforgettable wedding.


For the ceremony, Graham and Sarah chose to say their vows along a terrace overlooking Tuscany’s hills and vineyards. We set up the space with a white aisle for the processionals, along with simple but beautiful chairs and greenery. A close friend of the couple officiated, and others gave speeches and performed special readings, adding even more depth and intimacy to the moment.


The aperitif and wedding dinner were held in the villa’s marvelous gardens, where a long rustic table was set at the center. White Emotion Events matched its bare wooden surface with mix-and-match chairs, blue napkins and dishware, and a centerpiece runner of greens, lemons and candlelight. For a magical finishing touch, we illuminated the scene with strings of small light bulbs overhead, tying together the one-of-kind ambiance you only find in rural Tuscany.


After a traditional Tuscan meal and fine red wine (and a few non-traditional toasts!) it was time for cutting the cake and getting the party started. It was a night of live music and barefoot dancing, smiles and laughter, and endless love. DJ Matthew provided additional beats, making sure everyone had the time of their lives — especially the happy couple
