European Style Romance meets Southern Charm at the 1850s Italianate Villa Wedding

European Style Romance meets Southern Charm at the 1850s Italianate Villa Wedding

After a gorgeous destination wedding in Mexico, Brittan and Brad hosted a stateside reception in Memphis, TN at the famous Annesdale Mansion. Located in the historic district of midtown Memphis, this 1850s villa offers a European romantic atmosphere, lush ground gardens, and glamorous architecture with a southern charm twist. Pulling inspiration from the ancient well-groomed estate, florals were designed with both gardens and glamour in mind. In our design brief, the bride wanted florals to be sophisticated without taking away from the beauty of the estate. There was a delightful moment at the open bar for guests with gladiolus, white roses, and italian ruscus creating a lovely statement piece over the whiskey and wine selection. No doubt, each element from the venue, vendors and florals curated an enchanted evening for this pair's unforgettable wedding celebration.
