An Unforgettable Wedding at the Abbazia di San Giusto – Tuscania
Alexandra and Lorenzo, a delightful couple from France and Italy, fell in love with Tuscania. This charming historic town surrounded by ancient walls is only a few kilometres south of Tuscany and close to the Argentario towards Rome. Tuscania was for a long time their secret getaway until they decided to make it the venue of their wedding ceremony. The Abbazia di San Giusto for the wedding reception was incredible, adding a touch of magic to the festive event. Their guests from all over the world, the Italian countryside, the lovely weather and the lavender fields created just the right atmosphere for this joyful weekend.
The Bride and Groom got ready for the ceremony in the spacious ancient rooms of the Abbazia. They arrived at the Cattedrale di San Giacomo in the cobbled centro storico of Tuscania in a 1962 Alfa Romeo (one of the groom’s passions). Here they found their guests and the wonderful World Spirit Orchestra, a Gospel Choir (one of the bride’s passions), already waiting for them.
Musicarancio, a superb live band, set a perfect atmosphere at the reception and party with their music. They were also responsible for the installation of ambient lighting and the charming play of lights which added extra magic to the wedding celebration after sunset.
The Bride and the Groom wish to thank their parents for all the love and patience that went into the preparation of the wedding. They are the very best thing that could have happened to their daughter and son. Without them nothing of all this would have been possible. Particular thanks go to Padre Gabriele for organising such an inspiring and energetic Mass in French and Italian. And very special thanks indeed go to all their guests for being there and making their wedding day truly unforgettable.
Dear friends, please enjoy the video of the wedding highlights of the wonderful wedding weekend shared with Alexandra and Lorenzo in June.
Stunning wedding at Villa La Foce near Montepulciano
Just in this wedding season we’ve discovered Villa La Foce, we’ve never been there and the place it’s really incredible. So this wedding at Villa la Foce it has been for us a great occasion for new inspirations, both for the amazing location but especially for having met a really nice couple: S. and S. come from Brazil and Holland and they were really attracted from beauty of Tuscany when they chose where to celebrate their wedding.
The whole event took place in Villa La Foce, treasuring all the beauties and corners of the villa. After the getting ready of bride and groom, in two elegant suites inside, we had the ceremony in the stunning italian garden in front of the building: it’s one of the most beautiful garden we’ve ever seen with his colors, scents, lines and perfect geometry…really a gem!
Then after the aperitif and the dinner, for cutting the cake and dancing, we moved to another characteristic spot: the ancient limonaia.
The whole day was amazing and perfectly organized by the wedding planner Cecilia Righini
Jennifer and Jesse are a beautiful young couple from New York, and so in love. Their love for travel and for Italy inspired them to marry in Florence, one of the most beautiful cities in the world!
The entire event was held in Villa la Vedetta, a unique location with picturesque scenery which set the stage for a day full of great memories and emotions.
While the bride and groom got ready, we were really touched by the first look between Jennifer and her father. He did one of the most touching speech we’ve ever heard… thank you very much for this great moment!
After the first look between the bride and the groom, the ceremony started and was very beautiful, full of deep and real feelings and filled with touching vows.
For us it was a great honor to be a part of such an amazing wedding, with lovely people from all over the world, full of smiles, friendliness and so much kindness…we really would love to thank everyone, one by one!
We would especially like to thank photographer Sophie Epton for her great professionalism, but also for the great skill and patience. She was in a tricky situation, serving as both the official photographer and a beautiful bridesmaid!
