Tyler and Sam get ready in separate accommodations at their castle retreat of Castello di Vicarello. Still, they are only a twenty-minute drive from Castello di Banfi.
The groom prepares with his best men. There is plenty of excitement and laughter in anticipation of the ceremony and party to follow. He looks handsome in a custom-made Ermenegildo Zegna Tuxedo for their classic black-tie affair.
The bride wears a show-stopping gown by Vera Wang tied with a black bow around the waist. She finishes the look along with a pair of Jimmy Choos and a Chanel handbag. She shares some beautiful moments with her mother as they spend preparing for the wedding together. The emotions are clear to see, and it's a pleasure to provide couples with tangible memories that they can cherish forever.
For their Castello di Banfi wedding, the couple chooses to have a first look. They will do this in the private olive garden. A first look allows them to share this intimate moment alone, instead of with all the guests at their Castello di Banfi wedding ceremony.
They can share their excitement and emotions away from the beautiful chaos a wedding brings.
Post-ceremony, we make our way down to the spa garden, a beautiful space to enjoy for any wedding at Castello di Banfi! Guests are treated to prosecco, cocktails, and canapés in the glorious Tuscan sunshine, against the backdrop of views across the vineyards.
We head to the vineyards for some wow-factor portraits with the couple in tow, which was plenty of fun and very romantic. The Banfi Estate is achingly beautiful, making a photographer's job easy!
After we've secured some gorgeous portraits, we head back to the castle courtyard for the reception to begin. Tyler & Sam love Castello Banfi because of its manicured feel, worthy of a fairy tale.
Their color palette is a stylish combination of black, white, and gold, with oodles of white blooms, trailing greenery, fairy lights, and candelabra to create an envy-inducing setting.
Crystal chandeliers hang gracefully above long banquet tables. The old stone of the castle and ancient cypress trees surrounds us. It creates a dining experience that their guests will always remember.
Friends and family enjoy mouth-watering food and impeccable service, during a five-course Italian meal. Dining under a starry Tuscany sky is a beautiful experience for everyone! The exceptional Banfi wines and olive oil accompany the excellent food and wine.
After hilarious speeches, we transition to the castle courtyard. The cake cutting takes place along with the first dance and a night of partying! It is safe to say that Tyler and Sam's Castello di Banfi wedding is a Tuscan winery wedding to remember.
