Growing up in an Italian restaurant myself, RSVP catering’s Italian inspired tasting event was one the rang near and dear to my heart! As a photographer, I’ve had the privilege of documenting countless moments of love, joy, and beauty. But there are certain experiences that stand out, and one of them is this recent citrus-infused al fresco dining event, and I think it is the perfect inspiration to share with couples looking to incorporate Italian roots into their wedding. This event was really a sensory delight, a burst of colors and flavors that came together to create a visual symphony. Designed by Laura Louise Event Design, furnished by Paisley and Jade, and hosted by RSVP Catering, this Italian inspired dining experience was laid out with the light wood classic carved dining tables paired with the ever popular woven willamette dining chairs.
The ambiance of the evening was undeniably reminiscent of a night in Tuscany. The concept of ‘la dolce vita’ (the sweet life) was brought to life through the delightful infusion of citrus and the open-air dining setting. Citrus played a central role in creating the Tuscan vibe of the evening. The tables were adorned with vibrant lemons, oranges, and grapefruits, their bright colors adding a touch of Mediterranean charm. The zesty aroma of freshly squeezed citrus juices wafted through the air, tantalizing the senses and setting the stage for a memorable culinary journey. The Italian-inspired dining experience was a testament to elegance and sophistication. The classic carved dining tables in light wood exuded timeless charm, providing the perfect canvas for the feast that awaited. Each setting was meticulously arranged, reflecting the attention to detail that is synonymous with Italian craftsmanship.
A citrus al fresco was the vibe of the evening so we were excited to provide the light green lattice bar with light wood bar top paired with white contemporary shelving as back bars for Molecular Food & Cocktails to whip up her magical cocktails! The white wilhelm cocktail tables paired with the seagrass barstools were scattered around the space for guests to enjoy throughout the evening. A night in Tuscany is not just a destination; it’s an experience. This citrus-infused al fresco dining event beautifully encapsulated the essence of Italy, making it a perfect source of inspiration for couples looking to infuse Italian charm into their wedding celebrations. I took so many photos, and am so excited to share them below!
