Venice Wedding Inspiration

Venice Wedding Inspiration. Known as "La Serenissima," the Italian city of Venice is imbued with wedding inspiration in a most serene way. From its storied history and canals to its artistic expression and architecture, Venice never ceases to enchant when it comes to creating wedding magic.

Many inspired elements in this shoot are romantic and timeless. The invitation suite boasts old world charm with its rugged parchment, curling script, and image of the city.

Water elements are key as the city is surrounded by water and known for its canals. A bride stands next to the water’s edge with a parasol, in a sheer blue top and long lace skirt.

Florals abound and the bride shows off a hearty collection of blooms in soft lavender hues. The abundant florals at her feet and in her arms offer both contrast and texture.

With such an historic city as its muse, this shoot captures much of the gorgeous architecture. From the cobblestone streets, a bride could don’t do better than finding a heavy iron door and whitewashed building from which to pause.
