Recently I had the pleasure of traveling to Italy to attend the wedding of my good friends Jessica and Nicola. Set in heart of Chianti at Castello Gelsomino, the wedding was a romantic fete flanked by old world architecture and rolling hills.
Needless to say to anyone who has traveled to Italy (or anyone who has had the pleasure of seeing photographs), there’s never a need to overdue it when it comes to creating an atmosphere in a hotel, restaurant, or, in this case, a wedding reception. The castle at which the festivities were held gave perfectly for this type of event because of its beauty in addition to being one of the top Chianti wine producers in the region. After all, What’s a wedding without great wine?
Married in a local abbey, Jessica and Nicola lead their guests back to the castle for a relaxing evening bathed in candlelight and baby’s breath. Greens, lilac and whites reflected throughout castle and which lent itself to beautiful photographs of a trip and evening I (and the happily married couple) will not soon forget.
