This Villa Mangiacane wedding features romantic details with bountiful greenery, creamy white florals, and soft shades of pink.
Villa Mangiacane was constructed in the 15th century and built as a residence for the Machiavelli family. With a long-held belief that the Machiavelli family hired Michaelego to design the Villa. In 1645 the Villa was turned over to the aristocratic family of Marchesi Mazzei. They managed to maintain the villa until the mid-20th century. It wasn’t until early 2000 that the villa again changed owners. During this time it was completely restored to its original splendor, preserving its historical architecture.
Today, Villa Mangiacane is a luxurious private property that hosts weddings & events. Providing accommodations for couples and their guests. Because the villa is filled with a collection of art and antiques, it evokes the charm of its rich history. All the while providing couples with a picturesque location in the Tuscan countryside for an exclusive wedding day in an intimate yet luxurious setting.
My bride and groom’s journey began when they met in high school and later began dating in college. After a time, they were engaged. The proposal happened in their new home just before they moved in. From there, they set out to plan a magnificent Tuscan wedding.
They became husband & wife on a warm and sunny afternoon at Villa Mangiacane. Their ceremony was framed by the magnificent sculpted Italian gardens, with lush white florals lining the way to the altar. After the ceremony, guests enjoyed cocktail hour by the pool while the bride and groom changed their wardrobes for the reception. A candle-lit dinner was set al fresco style in the Villa’s courtyard. The bride & groom, along with their guests, spent the night dining under rows of twinkle lights while enjoying the views of the Villa’s sweeping grounds.
