It always seems impossible until it’s done. Our first time at this castle between Umbria & Tuscany was in the spring of 2020, to meet the beautiful Brianna, who was planning her destination wedding in Italy later that year. Even the stars were jealous of the sparkle in her eyes - the castle was still under renovation at that time, but we all could already see its stunning features.

Then, the pandemic. The wedding postponed to summer 2021. Until two weeks before, no one knew whether Italy would be able to receive visitors. It may be stormy now, but it never rains forever. The bride knows that!

The newlyweds got ready together with bridesmaids and groomsmen in the luxurious rooms of the castle before exchanging vows and rings at one of the villas on the property— a touching ceremony in a beautiful setting overlooking the surrounding untouched countryside. Here I also captured a few bride and groom photos before they rejoined their friends and family, who were eagerly awaiting them to start the reception.

A long night, and memories made together, last forever. My favorite things in life: beauty, delicious food, and best friends. What else?
