 Local couple Nick and Stephanie, inspired by the movie Under the Tuscan Sun, found the perfect locale for their Italian destination wedding at a Farmhouse turned Bed and Breakfast in Tuscany, Italy. Tuscany’s cypress trees and rolling hills is complemented by the Bed and Breakfasts working vineyard and olive tree orchard, providing the perfect backdrops for the wedding photo ops of a lifetime.





  This most memorable event you have spent so much time planning must be preserved in pictures.  A great photographer is a must to capture the essence of your once in a life time experience.  The couple chose Milwaukee Photographer Dennis Felber.

 Taking the time to secure a good Italian wedding planner made all the difference the pair spent the next eight months communicating via Skype and email working out the details.  Having to trust a complete stranger with the details of their most special day was not without worry, but it all turned out fabulously.  Their wedding planner removed all the stress and uncertainty and even helped plan the events prior to the ceremony.

Red and white silk flowers, from the Front Porch of Waukesha, ensured the desired look of the floral arrangements and trimmed with olive branches to combine the Tuscan countryside with the scene.  The use of silk flowers ensured Stephanie was able to return home with her flowers intact.


Next to the scenery the best part of having your wedding in a romantic locale is the menu options.  Nick and Stephanie capitalized on the opportunity with the  hors d’oeuvre mixed bruschetta with local sauce made with liver, fresh Chianti and capers, mushrooms, tomatoes a variety of local cold cuts and a selection of local Cheese served with honey and jam panzanella pappa al pomodoro.  Dinner consisted of Pasta made with vegetables sauce lasagna made with ragu arista (pork roast beef) and side dishes of fagiolini al fiasco.  Desert complemented it all with homemade Mimosa Cake.




“Don’t worry about the small details, just enjoy the day and make it one that you will remember lovingly for the rest of your life.” advises bride Stephanie Cossette.
