Florence has always been one of my favorite places to shoot a destination wedding in Italy.
The capital or Renaissance offers several enchanting venues to create an exclusive dream wedding.
The art, the great food, the breathtaking landscape, and warmth of the locals have always been the best calling card for the couples who choose Florence for their wedding.
Today I would like to show Vanessa and Alex’s wedding. They selected Florence because Vanessa, who is part Italian and lives in Chicago, did her year abroad in Florence and could not choose otherwise; and Alex was happy with her choice.
Their guests came from all over the world, most of them part Italian too; they could not wait to plunge into the three-day event in Florence.
The pre-wedding cocktails and rehearsal dinner took place at the lovely Fattoria di Maiano, a Medici villa overlooking Florence, not far from the city and offering an amazing sunset over the valley.
The symbolic wedding ceremony was celebrated at SESTO ON ARNO, on the rooftop of the WESTIN EXCELSIOR, while the dinner took place in the reception hall of the ST. REGIS FIRENZE.
In my work, I tried to convey their story, keeping their vibrancy, their warmth, and the happiness they felt at
going back to their roots.
This could not have happened without the wonderful chemistry created with their wedding planner, Katia Morales, and the support of my friends and colleagues MARIA ZAVAGLIA and GIACOMO BRIZZI
