BRIDE:Alison| GROOM: Seth| LOCATION: tuscan real wedding in Volterra Area | PH: David Bastianoni Studio
It was last June when we celebrated Alison & Seth’ love with an amazing tuscan real wedding. This was a special wedding, overflowing with art: Alison, the lovely Bride, is a theatre actress and Seth, the charming Groom, is a writer and musician.
First of all, they decided to head to the hills of Tuscany, together with their guests, for a weeklong celebration of their marriage.
The wedding took place at a 17th Century hilltop manor home that lies in the heart of the triangle formed by Siena, Florence and Pisa.
Also, the week was full of activities: truffle hunts, pizza parties, wine tasting tours, cooking classes, a medieval festival and excursions to surrounding towns like Volterra and San Gimignano. In addition, there was also a lot of time spent by the pool. And a lot of time to soak up the Tuscan sun, to play cards, billiards, and ping pong. A lot of time to eat antipasti, pasta, and pane. And a lot of time to drink Prosecco, Lambrusco, and Chianti with the special circle of the people they love most!
Ceremony was in the panoramic area. Landscape, music and words warmed the atmosphere. A friend of Alison and Seth performed the symbolic blessing that was really touching.
After bride’s entrance a friend of Seth played “Wish you were here”. This was a moving memorial dedication for the relatives that passed away.
During the wine box ceremony a friend sang Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah”.
After the Celtic hand fasting ceremony and the traditional Jewish custom of breaking the glass, the notes of “If you want to sing out, sing out” by Cat Stevens resounded. Lyrics printed out on the back of the order of service encouraged everyone to sing along!
So many tears of joy flew freely during this ceremony, especially while Bride & Groom pronounced their wows.
The hills of Tuscany and a white half Cabrio Fiat 500 were the backgorund for amazing pictures!
After the pictures, when guests entered the aperitivo, Alison & Seth surprised them all by singing a song and playing on the guitar!
During the aperitif, a Gypsy soul trio cheered everyone up.
Dinner was a time to enjoy Tuscan food but also to enjoy the speeches. Each word dedicated to Bride & Groom was actually made of love and, again, it was impossible to hold back the tears!
Finally, it was time for the wedding cake and for ice cream! The right way to get ready to dance!
Music touched every heart again with Bride and Groom first Dance: “Try a Little Tenderness” by Otis Redding!
Then Father and Daughter Dance, “Stand by Me” by Ben E. King.
Definitely this was a wedding made with the music!
