When a Mediterranean garden is at your fingertips, little else is needed to make it super pretty.  Here, the photo

grapher explains her creative process:

We were inspired by the lush flora of the Meditteranean gardens. Soaking in warm light, and overflowing with a
plethora of roots and tubers, citrus fruit, viticulture, herbs, and flowers used for perfume extraction.  The color
and tonality are emphasized by the hardscape, with patios, courtyards, low walls and overheads. Earth tones are
punctuated by bright accent colors like fuchsia, lotus-orange, purple and yellow. The Mediterranean garden can
host a most romantic wedding, and serve both as a shooting-session backdrop and an incredible venue. The
shoot location, the Parparoussi Estate, which also includes a family-sustained winery, provided the perfect
setting. We did not employ any extra decorative pieces, as the urns, terra-cotta pots and stonework pretty
much decorated the place. The weathered look was key; a true Mediterranean garden is where you live, not just
something you view. It should show some wear.  We imagined this wedding to reflect exactly that: continuance,
longevity, energy and emotion. Nothing spells Mediterranean like tile, by mixing tile patterns popular in the
Adriatic and the Aegean, they brightened up the tablescape. We set the table with Roman style glassware and
tile-inspired stationery, menus, invitations, cake and treats. We incorporated a little delicate embroidery, fresh
fruit and a crystal candelabra set on a 1920’s mahogany buffet.  The fauna of the estate did not hesitate to
make its way into the session, which created a fairy tale feel complete with peacocks.
