Tell us about your wedding…
We chose to get married in Italy as we got engaged in Riomaggiore and hold Italy in our hearts.
Tuscany was just the perfect place to gather all our friends and family for an intimate ceremony overlooking the vineyards and to enjoy the fantastic Tuscan food.

We found the venue online, while browsing for potential venues near Florence. As soon as we visited the Villa Montelucci, perched up a hill, with its long garden and fairy lights, we knew this would be our dream venue. I immediately pictured a long rustic table, with a garland full of olive branches and delicate roses in golden candleholders. The idea of having a romantic alfresco wedding, with a ceremony overlooking the vineyards enchanted us both and we were soon booking the venue and organizing deta

ils for the ceremony, aperitivo and dinner.

Our color palette was green, rose and peach with gold accents. The wedding favors consisted of miniature bottles of locally produced olive oil. We kept our ceremony decoration simple, with a few olive branches and flowers decorating the alleyway.

The view was so breath-taking that there wasn’t much needed for decoration. After the ceremony, we headed to the garden for the delicious aperitivo, followed by a photo portrait session with our lovely photographer, Roberta Facchini.

The backdrop was just stunning, and the light was just like in a dream, very soft and glowy. Then afterwards, we headed to our table for a fantastic three-course dinner, in the garden, all lit-up with fairy lights; the atmosphere was very romantic.

The day ended with us all dancing under the tuscan stars. Our wedding day was a dream come true and one day we will remember forever thanks also our photographer Roberta Facchini. She had so many ideas for beautiful photos, and she is so creative, we knew she was “the one” from the very beginning. The photos she delivered are just stunning and we could notbe happier!

These will be memories we will treasure forever.
