We always love a good wedding in Tuscany! LUIZA SMIRNOVA captured this beautiful celebration in the hills of Chianti at VILLA ORTAGLIA. Working with wedding planner MY MELANIE the bride wore a gown by TATYANA KOCHNOVA and had WITH LOVE FLORAL DESIGN create a gorgeous bouquet. The beautiful bride tells us about their day, "After arriving in Florence, we headed for the villa where we were to spend five unforgettable days. We spent our days drinking coffee in the morning on the terrace, enjojing dinner in the tennis arbor entwined with grapes, sipping young Chianti wine and just enjoying our friends.
On the day of our wedding a column of sunlight entered our kitchen through a side window, my favourite window in the house: a view opens on the hills of Chianti and Florence framed by cypress trees. Guests gathered at the beginning of the soft long Tuscan twilight, after the drinks the twilight turned golden and in the evening blue and this is when we served our first course.The night comes right away, as if the sun with one jerk dragged under the hill. We lit candles - they are placed along the whole stone wall, on the table and we enjoy the evening with our closest loved ones."
