Villa Loriana Wedding | San Luis Obispo Wedding Designer | Jenna & Nick

These high school sweethearts spent time in Tuscany after graduating from college, and let that inspire their modern Italian villa themed wedding weekend at the stunning Villa Loriana in San Luis Obispo. Jenna and Nick used Earth tones and fall colors to accent the natural beauty of the venue, while also reflecting on the time of year the bride and groom were getting married.

Instead of a typical guestbook, the couple decided to forgo that and opt for guests to sign wine bottles. Their touching ceremony took place on the hilltop in front of the waterfall, with the bride being escorted down the aisle by both of her dads. We loved the addition of Villa Loriana’s ceremony doors at the aisle entrance, which made the bridal party’s walk even more magical. Nothing was more magical than Jenna and Nick’s sparkler exit at the end of the night! A truly unmatched spectacle!!!
