Puglia, Italy Inspiration Shoot by Les Amis Photo

It's the weekend! Let's celebrate with this stunning photo shoot by Les Amis Photo sent over to us from Puglia, Italy! Read below for more details and vendors who created this gorgeous shoot.

This shoot designed by Marriage and Glamour and Les Amis Photo is inspiration for an Italian destination wedding. The team chose Puglia in Southern Italy as the backdrop because of it's romanticism complete with small stone houses that can be transformed into charming venues for an intimate destination wedding . For materials the focus was natural, handmade and eco-frieindly including pure linen and ropes for textiles. Natural local-made paper donning olive wreaths was used for place cards, menus, and invitations showcasing the plant that is considered the banner of Puglia.  As small favors, a crusty bread typical of Puglia was placed at each table setting. The bread was served in small bags with the following proverb: "Bread and tomato produce healthy blood and warmth." Along with ancient pottery and silver cutlery on the tables, centerpieces were made with simple whites and greens mixed with herbs of the Mediterranean region including rosemary, olive, chamomile, succulents. The dessert table was prepared with a plum cake flavored with lemon, cheese cake with lavender and finally many small biscuits and sweets with almond paste typical of Puglia. The bride and groom were styled to fit the romantic and vintage setting.
