First time I read an email from Kathy it was one year and a half before her wedding day: after a couple Skype calls she introduced my to her lovely mum who was the one who came first to Tuscany to select the right venue. She was really a big help and took care of every detail of the wedding even of the decorations, as Katy decided to fly to the Emirates to start her new career in a big company.
After a couple of visits to different farmhouses with Kathy’s parent she came back to me with a decision, Villa Elena was the right place for their wedding tuscany. And so a long year and a half of planning started, with options for both a symbolic ceremony at the Villa and a civil one in the amazing townhall of Siena . Time flew by very quick and the big day approached fast so last details were decided directly at the bride arrival in Siena. Kathy had a busy working trip before getting to Tuscany so I didn’t want to stress her with some many details and just and a short meeting in the afternoon to finalize a couple of things.The following day was the big day: the sun was shining around the Chianti hills and everything looked perfect for the blessing in the garden. I took care of the flowers and decoration with the help of Kathy’s mum and when the bride came with her bridesmaids everything was ready for their moment:
As the Villa host a very famous restaurant the dinner was prepared by the house chef and was served by the pool. As the sun went down all the guests moved to the area inside for the dance.
As the sun went down it was time to cut the cake and the bride that asked for an ice cream cart enjoyed her favorites gelato while some pictures where taken.
I love every wedding I organize but this was special because I spent many many years of my life living just in front of Casa Elena so still keep good memories of these hills, their colors and their perfumes… Chianti Classico, such a nice place to have your perfect wedding!!
