What can we say about Rachel + Peter’s elegant Villa Cetinale wedding that cannot be expressed more beautifully than the gallery from Katie Grant Photo below? Their destination wedding weekend amidst the rolls hills of Tuscany has left us breathless. From their ceremony set between a dramatic lane of Italian cypresses to their al fresco dinner beneath a family style table, lush with greenery and sunshine-meets-citrus blooms from Honeycomb Affair, this setting couldn’t have been more romantic. All the mesmerizing details and emotional moments (hello, tearjerking father/daughter dance!) were brought to life by the California based planning team, CCL Weddings and we are just soaking up every little bit of inspiration R+P’s wedding is chock full of! See what we mean in the elegant image gallery below.
From the photographer, Katie Grant Photo: Set amongst the ancient colonnade of giant cypress trees, this stunning garden wedding stole the hearts of every person present. Rachel and Peter decided to come from California to the rolling hills of Tuscany to tie the knot, and couldn’t have chosen a more beautiful location. The beautiful Villa Cetinale hosted their intimate wedding where endless tears and special moments were had….especially moving was Rachel’s dad walking her down the aisle and making it to the dance floor for an incredibly special father / daughter dance. CCL created an incredible atmosphere with lush, spilling florals complimenting every space.
That kiss though! *Wipes tears from entire face*
There is truly no place on earth that achieves the Old World romantic aesthetic than Italy.

If this isn’t the sweetest father/daughter dance you’ve ever seen, we don’t know what is!
