Once Upon a Time there was a Medici Villa in the very heart of Tuscany, a couple from USA and the soft colors of Early Spring…

This is the elegant elopement in Villa Medicea di Lilliano, Tami and Ryan love story.


Tami and Ryan wanted a very small, intimate but elegant and stylish wedding in Tuscany. So, they chose the amazing Villa di Lilliano in early spring to get married surrounded by their closest family and friends (for a guest count of only twelve people - newlyweds included!) 

The bride wore a stunning lace mermaid gown, perfect for the elegance and magnificence of the Villa. The groom opted for a classic, stylish deep blue suit, the gold match for the style of the wedding. The style of the bride was completed with the delicate touch of Azzurra Make Up and Sandra Hairstylist for make up and hair. 

After getting ready in the apartment inside the Villa, Tami and Ryan met for their first look on the terrace overlooking the olive fields, for an intimate moment before the symbolic ceremony, hosted in the lower garden by TuscanPledges celebrant. 

After the ceremony and the family pictures, Tami and Ryan enjoyed time for the romantic and elegant couple shooting, filling the photoshoot with intimate, candid and stylish wedding photos

The reception were arranged inside the Limonaia, since in early spring in Tuscany is still a bit cold in the evening, but everything was perfectly styled with the flowers from Il Giardino delle Fate, the light wall by Kaleydo and the perfect arrangement made by Villa di Lilliano wedding planner.


Il Giardino delle Fate created the floral arrangement for this Tuscan elopement. With a soft color palette created with pale pink, peach, very light purple and blue, they brought a very simple but true elegant look to the day. Candles and gold details were the perfect final touches for the arrangement. 

The highlight of the arrangement was the beautiful arch for the ceremony, that framed the ancient fountain and created a sumptuous background for the pictures. 

At the reception, the small but perfect table was adorned by a soft peach runner and the same flower palette in little gold bottles and candles, for a true elegant and luxurious touch.


I love so much Villa Medicea di Lilliano. The incredible century-old estate is surrounded by olives an vineyards, and it’s one of the top choices for small and big weddings with the true Tuscan feel, with a very big touch of elegance and luxury.

The gardens of the villa are for sure the highlight, with lemon trees, natural growing flowers and the stunning monumental fountain waiting for your wedding ceremony in the back for the garden. 

During summer you can have an alfresco dinner in the garden, but the Villa is also perfect in early spring or autumn, or in case of bad weather: the Limonaia will wait for your reception and dances, to enjoy your wedding day at its best.

And let’s talk about wedding photos in Villa Medicea di Lilliano: from the getting ready to the very couple shooting, there are countless spots to use, both inside the villa, with the gardens and the luxurious interiors, and outside: just across the street we can use the big olive trees field, and also the vineyard just next to it, and bing to your wedding photos the true Tuscan feel during the golden hour. 

But if you’re getting married in autumn, or early spring as Tami and Ryan did, and we can’t have the golden, summer sun, don’t worry at all: the stunning beauty of the villa will be captured with soft and delicate colors and contrast, for an even more luxury and elegant look to your wedding pictures.
