Taking inspiration from music and its symbolic ties to love of all forms, photographer Stefano Casati captured this romantic and dramatic shoot, evoking cultural and historical nods for a look that is anything but skin deep.
Italy, Stefano Casti explains, is the perfect location, known for a rich history of classic architecture, music, culture, and stunning landscapes. And Villa Bossi is an especially beautiful venue, where musical instruments are also handcrafted and visitors come from around the world to tour the gorgeous museum.
Teaming up with wedding planner Diana Edelweiss, you can see the romantic elements starting with the classic wedding dress. Lace embroidery covers from hem to high collar, while illusion, juliet sleeves and a button and tie back make the wedding dress especially exquisite.
Classic is still updated and feels modern with a white rose bouquet that is oversized and evokes the natural, lush beauty of the courtyards. White tablecloths and toches of gold provide signature elegance, and, of course, the venue would not be complete without a classic piano and outdoor sculptures.
