Given the time of year for this wedding, the bride and groom have obviously chosen the outdoor spaces.
After the welcome drink in the beautiful Italian gardens, guests for the Jewish ceremony were guided into the large Giardino Segreto hidden by high hedges, with the chuppah sumptuously adorned with white roses.

The dinner took place at sunset in the Giardino dei Limoni, in front of the main building, with its many lemon trees illuminated by candles.

Here the newlyweds and guests were entertained by live music until the dancing began in the adjoining Sala Aurelia, followed by the cutting of the cake and the buffet of desserts served on the adjacent terrace overlooking a magnificent Rome by night.
