We have a styled photoshoot for you today that embraces a recent lovely trend in weddings- the picnic. And even better, it’s from Italy- Florence in fact. The talented Innocenti Studios were behind the lens of this shoot designed by Francesca of Franci’s Flowers, and the beautiful Palazzo Ximenez was chosen not only for its central location in the city but also for the intimate garden situated in its ancient palazzo- which of course was the perfect picnic setting. The design was inspired by Florentine cultural heritage with props referencing the city’s deep connections with fine art and music in the easel, paintbrushes and music sheets. The picnic concept was emphasized by using bright spring and summer flowers such as orange and yellow ranunculus for Elena’s floral crown and bouquet and a gorgeous table centerpiece of white sweet peas, vibrant lime vibernum and orange blossoms. Anna Fuca’ provided a lovely embellished vintage style gown for the bride. I love the shoot’s slightly sepia hue, reminiscent of warm Florentine sunshine.

Models Elena and Diego are close friends in real life which makes this shoot even sweeter. Florence is just an amazing place and I’m so in love with the idea of this secret garden picnic in the middle of the city! Can you imagine a destination wedding here? Thanks to Francesca for sharing this lovely shoot with us and of course also to the other vendors involved who made it all possible.

    Stunning! This may seem like a funny detail to notice — but I absolutely love the color and texture of the groom’s suit! I’m also a fan of how the orange and green play off of each other in the florals! Beautiful style!

    Oh, this makes me crave a picnic outing! I love the old jars of paint and that incredible ranunculus arrangement!
