A small wedding in Italy, in the land of the red sunset and good wine.
I am talking about Tuscany! One of the most beautiful places in Italy, perfect for a relaxed and stress-free day with the closest families and friends.
Alex & Jenna have planned a simple and joyful wedding on top of a hill surrounded by a typical tuscan view at Podere Celli.
Family and guests have been able to enjoy the place sleeping there for some days all together, which is an amazing solution for an intimate wedding.
The ceremony has been held in the garden, where Alex did his entrance twice with both of the family mothers, (so cute!) and the ritual was personalised with a friend of them covering the charge of celebrant, and the sand rite, a very sweet symbolic gesture.
Guests were so involved and moved, and Alex & Jenna where truly excited and happy!
It was romantic and emotionally meaningful, as it should be.
We then spent some time walking around the property for some couple photos, they were at the beginning a bit nervous as both of them were not feeling comfortable in front of the camera, but we started in a easy way, just walking and enjoying the view of the field, and adding some games and jokes they rapidly “melted” and actually enjoyed the all thing taking it in a spontaneous way and letting themselves just be. That is actually the all point, I can never get tired to say this.
I was so proud of them, the change was fast and impressive!
Back to the villa they finally enjoyed some relax time with good wine and laughter with friends, following a super cool entrance for dinner, with “Jump” from Cypress hill! Everybody stared clapping and dancing with total freedom! So exciting and fun!
Dinner was so enjoyable, everyone was comfortable and I could hear jokes and such a positive vibe.
As the cherry on top, a delicious Millefoglie was served, actually prepared life in front of them giving Alex & Jenna the possibility to become Chef for a few minutes!
The night went on with a sweet first dance following a super fun time with everybody dancing out.
Shooting this wedding was a huge pleasure, as it is one of my favourite type of event, where the focus is actually on the couple and create a fun and relaxed environment where time is dedicated to actually do only what makes you happy rather than following a list of obligations and follow a straight timeline.
They went for something that was working for them, and I couldn’t be happier honestly. Cheers to you two Alex & Jenna see you back in Italy
