I am headed to Italy next month!! I cannot wait to shoot there with all of the old world charm and stunning architect! This Villa is right here in LA but it definitely reminds me of Italy.
In 1924, a couple built their dream home in the San Gabriel Mountains– the home that would eventually become the Villa del Sol d’Oro.
They wanted to create an Italian villa in LA, so the couple hired a famous Pasadena architect Wallace Neff. He was also the designer of Gillette Mansion (another really amazing venue I have had the privilege of shooting at).
This Villa is a two-thirds scale replica of the Villa Collazzi near Florence rumored to have been designed by Michelangelo. I might just have to track down this one in Florence while I am there.
If your looking for a wedding with that destination feel here in LA this is the perfect Venue for you!! If you happen to be in Italy in May and want to have some wedding, engagement, anniversary or couple photos done please contact me!!
