06 Dic Wedding Photographer Lucca: Spring Elopement in Tuscany
Wedding Photographer Lucca: This is a story about a special american couple, that choosed Tuscany for their romantic Elopement.
For this story, as a Wedding Photographer in Lucca, I want to tell you about it with the voice of the protagonists.
“Our romance is a story of destiny. God’s divine plan and the U.S. Army turned a distance of 2000 miles and the feelings of hopelessness of two lonely 36 year olds into a beautiful love story. At the exact right time in both of our lives, we were brought together and we never looked back. In fact, our focus was very much on our future together. Our “forever” officially started in the most beautiful of settings: the rolling hills of Lucca, Tuscany.
My ancestors immigrated to the United States from Italy in the early 1900s, and therefore, Italy has always had a sentimental place in my heart. When I suggested an Italian wedding to Justin, he offered no resistance! We had no idea that our wedding experience in Tuscany would completely exceed all our expectations and our sweetest of dreams.
Our venue, Casale de’ Pasquinelli, near Lucca, was the perfect setting for our small April wedding of 36 guests. I can still see the brilliance of the flowers in bloom; I can hear the birds chirping, the laughter of our family and closest friends, and the church bells ringing in the distance. My magnificent balcony views of villas, vineyards and olive groves are forever cemented in my mind. The grounds and scenery made for the loveliest wedding photos, which we greatly cherish. Each moment captured brings me right back to that magical day.
Our wedding day was truly so much more amazing than we could have ever imagined. The morning was peaceful and slow as we each got ready in our separate houses. Justin even managed a quiet morning walk through the countryside to quell his nerves. Our wedding ceremony, conducted in Italian, was held outside overlooking the vistas on a beautiful warm and sunny day. The sound of an Italian trio danced through the olive grove where we and our guests enjoyed our aperitif. Our 3-course dinner rivaled the best Italian meals I’ve ever eaten, and while we dined, our traditional millefoglie wedding cake was created into an exquisite burst of layered beauty before our eyes. The clouds stayed away just long enough to provide a gorgeous sunset backdrop for our photos and videography. The best part of all was sharing every special moment with the people who mean the most to us.
We planned our 4-day wedding weekend from afar, and never had an opportunity to visit the venue or meet with our vendors prior to the wedding. All planning was conducted via email. However, there was no need for concern – we were so thrilled with our experience. Our venue, (also the accommodation for us and our guests), was fabulous. Our wedding planner was extremely organized and never missed a beat. Our vendors worked passionately and were incredibly reliable and trustworthy. We send a huge THANK YOU to everyone who created this spectacular day for us, and contributed to the wonderful lifelong memories we hold dear in our hearts now and forever.”
