On June 16th, Lital and Andrea enjoyed their lovely Tuscan side wedding at the luxurious Villa Medicea di Lilliano surrounded by 90 of their closest friends and family members. Organized by The Tuscan Wedding, the duo combined their Italian and Israeli backgrounds for a weekend filled with festivities, including a pre-wedding pizza party at La Torre that featured a vintage 500 gelato car, and personalized “That’s Amore” welcome bags containing Italian wine, chocolates, and much more. The guest’s pizza was made from scratch at the venue and was authentically cooked in a fire oven right in front of them. It was the perfect celebration leading up to their big day!
Their detailed and lush wedding featured a welcome drink surrounding Villa Medicea di Lilliano’s entryway fountain designed by Giovanni Battista Foggini. A rustic wicker carriage was decorated with complementary hats and personalized fans for the guests as they arrived, creating such a picture perfect setup. As serene music was played by an Italian Folk Trio, guests were treated to an array of drinks and delicious bites before making their way up the grand staircase towards the terrace to witness Lital and Andrea’s forever officially begin. Lital made her glorious entrance escorted by her mother and father wearing a flowing lace tiered gown that complemented her young and fun-loving style perfectly, accessorized with a brightly colored floral crown and matching bouquet from Flowers Living. Andrea was awaiting his effortlessly beautiful bride-to-be wearing a navy blue suit and striped pocket square. Overlooking an exquisite scenic view of the Duomo and Tuscan countryside, the two officially tied the knot as her brother personally played the guitar during their Jewish ceremony planned by The Tuscan Wedding. Not without the groom’s traditional glass smashing, of course!
After which, the newlyweds, along with their guests, made their way to the garden to enjoy a delightful aperitive surrounded by the villa’s authentic lemon and olive trees. A unique, vintage blue polaroid camera was provided for the guests to document their memories celebrating Lital and Andrea in this jaw dropping destination. To continue their Jewish celebrations, guests accompanied the newlyweds to a Hora dance in the garden that was perfectly captured by the photographer and videographer, Edoardo Agresti and Gattotigre. All participants had such high amounts of energy for this memorable dance. It was surely a moment to experience! Following this tradition, Ciabatti Ricevimenti catered and served a delicious three course dinner. Long tables covered in greenery, vibrant flowers, candles, and perfectly placed hanging lights by Almaproject created such a dreamy atmosphere surrounded by the endless countryside view. Guests indulged in risotto with asparagus and saffron sauce, tortelli with burrata filling, and a beef filet steak with red wine sauce and fondant potatoes. We cannot stop dreaming of this incredible cuisine!
Following the dinner, Villa Medicea di Lilliano’s limonaia was transformed into an unbeatable dancing destination. After the cutting of their delectable wafer cake with mixed wild berries, the music started, the bar was open, and the official wedding celebrations officially began. Vertically scaled purple toned lights and a classic disco ball lit up the entire space while guests of all ages danced the night away. An illustrative touch to the festivities included a mirror photobooth in the corner of the limonaia, featuring quirky hats and accessories to create a fun-loving photo to harmoniously complement the surroundings.
Overall, Lital and Andrea’s destination wedding festivities were truly memorable from their personalized touches, along with friends and family showering them with endless love and well wishes. The Tuscan Wedding has thoroughly enjoyed planning their special day, and predicts nothing short of an enduringly blissful life together as husband and wife for the newlyweds.
