A Venue You Wont Believe

From Les Amis Photo: Gaia and Luciano got married on August 27 in Tuscany, in a very picturesque place, the Abbey of San Galgano. The abbey, built during the eleventh century, is practically a ruin of which only the walls remain standing, it no longer has a roof and this makes it even more special, it is really a magical place, that leaves you breathless.

We Cannot Get Enough Of This Style

This wedding was a romantic and exciting union, in a beautiful sunny day. The civil ceremony took place in the Abbey, the bride arrived in a Volkswagen van along with bridesmaids and pageboys (her nieces and nephews) and Simius, their beloved dog. Gaia was wearing a dress from Laure de Sagazan, a French fashion designer, and her bouquet was dusty blue delphinium.

The reception was held at Villa Podernovo, a beautiful Tuscan villa in the countryside near Siena. The villa is charming, has many rooms very tastefully decorated, a nice pool, a large garden where we set up the cocktail hour, and a lovely yard where the dinner was served. We opted for a cool layout and a romantic, rustic-chic style typical of Tuscany.

Borrowed Treasures  

All the graphics have been well taken care of, for them we created a very rich custom suite. But the icing on the cake was ensured by the bride’s mother, who opened the doors of her basement, full with wonders: fabrics, embroidered cushions, household porcelain, antique furniture and armchairs, all beautiful things that we used to set up the garden the villa, where the cocktail hour took place.
