I have been enamored with Italian food and culture for as long as I can remember. That’s why Tuscan inspired nuptials are some of my favorite. Plus, I just love a good vineyard wedding because the atmosphere is usually so lovely and the details are perfect! With the right venue like Ramble Creek, surrounded by blooms, exquisite food, and excellent wine, it feels like you’ve been transported straight to the Tuscan countryside! Hey, we can dream, right?
With these 3 tips, you can throw your own elegant vineyard wedding right here in Tennessee!
Your venue space is a huge contender in how your entire wedding will feel. I suggest getting a versatile venue with the ability to have both outdoor and indoor space. You never know when Mother Nature might change the forecast on you, so having both could save you in the long run.
Ramble Creek has the perfect mix of both! Their rolling landscape is outstanding with lush green grass, full blooms for your garden atmosphere, and their very own vineyard! Plus, their indoor space is just as wonderful! With gorgeous cedar columns, a grand fireplace, and multi-hued wood flooring, you won’t even feel like you’re inside! Perfect for those couples who want natural aspects without having to deal with the outside elements.
The next step in taking your beautiful atmosphere to Tuscan level: food and wine! What would a vineyard be without great tasting wine and delicious food to accompany it! I mean that is the Italian way. Long banquet-style tables for your guests are perfect for alfresco dining. It brings new meaning to family style, as two families are becoming one!
I love the idea of adding a few charcuterie boards with your favorite meats and cheeses for a light snack for your guests instead of passed hors d’oeuvres. Use a pear and lavender sprig for a simple, yet elegant place setting to tie it all together.
The last touch? A chic bridal look! Side-swept hair with loose curls, natural makeup, a flowing gown, and a bouquet that accents your Tuscan theme! Bellissimo!
