Most of our family had never been out of the country so this was a new experience for them. This is also why we wanted to have the wedding in Italy, so that we could share one of our most favorite places we had ever been, and we wanted them to experience why we fell in love with the country and wanted to start our new life there.
We wished them to experience as much of the local customs and food which is important to us.
Overall our goal was to have a stress free, simple perfect wedding to be shared with our closest friends and family. Something truly no one would ever forget and it was worth them travelling half way around the world to participate in. Our goal was to have the wedding ceremony just before sunset and then the reception at night when candles would provide a truly romantic feeling.
