Can’t believe it’s already August because when seeing these images of Kelly and Gunther’s wedding in Tuscany again, it seems like only yesterday we sat together underneath the olive trees at Agriturismo Fattoria Lavacchio to celebrate.
Meanwhile, the wedding celebration continued yesterday with an amazing part two of the K & G wedding in their hometown of Beveren with their own Wed Fest. We are very excited to let you in on that amazing celebration on the blog soon!
Lets start at the beginning of this epic love story.. under the Tuscan sun!
Kelly and Gunther spent an unforgettable week with their family and close friends in Tuscany and got married on Monday, July 13 amongst the beautiful olive trees at Agriturismo Fattoria Lavacchio just outside of Florence.
Proud groom and father Gunther took his boys to see Kelly and I was so lucky to capture the shot I’ve had in mind for such a long time and I knew they would love it. I asked Gunther and the boys to walk up to me through the Cypress lane.. love that shot!
Gunther and the kids were a heavenly match, dressed in light blue suits with sunflower bouttonières, rustic-feel caps and hats. Our bride chose a lovely vintage look and got married in her dream A-line red wedding gown that was handmade as well as her matching hairpiece. A sunny sight.. a pop of colour and happiness..
Wedding planner Kim planned this lovely wedding and set up a bespoke wedding ceremony in the olive groves of the Fattoria, in a natural style with straw bales, olive twigs and beautiful furnishings. The ceremony was very emotional to watch as their loved ones spoke the kindest words about how they look at their Kelly & Gunther’s love life and the wishes they have for them. They played their favorite tunes and said their vows with so much emotion.. yes I had to hold my tears of joy. It touches you when people so in love, who have already shared so many adventures together and have brought up kids together, make it to Tuscany to celebrate their dream wedding with their loved ones present. Love is the greatest gift..
After the ceremony guests enjoyed cocktail hour at the pool, we went for a little walk on the domain and had fun taking family photos, followed by a lovely relaxed photo session of the couple.
Meanwhile WP Kim was busy adding the finishing touches to the al fresco dinner so that when Kelly & Gunther returned, they would be treated to the dinner party with this great welcome. The candles were lit at the long table with beautiful Chiavari chairs, a long Burlap table runner styled with sunny flower arrangements with Sunflowers, Gerbera’s and Lavender.
The fattoria served homegrown organic products for the menu such as homegrown vegetables, wines and silky olive oils. An Italian feast! Dinner party ended with Prosecco and a yummy slice of wedding cake underneath the stars.
Every moment was amazing, unforgettable and most of all: a happy one.
A true honor to have been in these moments of pure joy and happiness with Kelly & Gunther and their sweet family and friends.
Kelly & Gunther, thanks for everything.. Written in my heart..
