Styled Shoot

Stowed away in Redlands, California is a hidden gem – a masterpiece of Italian architecture called the Dolce Villa. This private estate is the dream venue for any California bride who wishes to wed in a European backdrop (without incurring travel costs).

Christine Li Photography’s vision for this styled shoot was to showcase an intimate wedding gathering, filled with sophistication and a touch of old-world charm, while juxtaposing modern elements. Beautifully planned and designed by Vennture Events, this shoot presents the possibility of transporting the couple and their wedding guests to Tuscany for one magical evening.

Before the ceremony, the villa’s owners offer their Rolls Royce as a luxury chauffeur service to transport the bride from a designated nearby location to their venue, so the bride can arrive in comfort and fashion.

The lush courtyard space for the ceremony can easily be transformed into the reception space, with repurposing of floral elements. The marigold and peach color palette, accenting the traditional blush and ivory, is inspired by Italy’s summer harvest: citrus fruits like lemons and oranges, peaches, and cantaloupes. The cocktail hour introduces guests to grazing tables with charcuterie boards, filled with delightful meats, cheeses and fruit pairings.

The bridal portraits showcase a blend of modern romance and old world charm in this Italian-styled venue.
