LOCATION: italian destination wedding, Val d’Orcia Area | PH: Nicola Tonolini
When you think of an italian destination wedding, particularly in Tuscany, for sure your mind goes to stunning landscapes and great food! This gallery brings the two things together!
First of all, this is the reportage of a special rehearsal dinner in Val d’Orcia, something really italian: a pizza party! The location was a Borgo in the middle of the rolling hills and green fields. So, Bride & Groom to be, chose this Venue for their wedding in August – 3 days of celebrations with their beloved ones.
1 The Set-Up
To make this destination wedding even more italian the couple of future spouses decided to offer their guests a Pizza experience. The set up perfectly matched up with this peculiar idea. Country wooden tables, white runners, tomatoes, carrots, eggplants, yellow peppers, radicchio and basil placed in former tomato sauce cans! Together with candles all around! So colored and funny tables… All guests were amazed!
2 Food experience
And now, let’s talk about food – one of the main ingredients of a destination wedding in Italy! As George Miller rightly said, “The trouble with eating Italian food is that two or three days later you’re hungry again”. Italian food traditions were kept by “Pizzaioli” interacting with guests. This team of professional pizza men put up a live cooking event in front of guests. Pizzas were baked in a brick oven. This was not only a typical Italian food corner but pizza makers created a dynamic event with flying pizzas, interacting with guests.
And two heart shaped pizzas were dedicated to the Bride & Groom to be!
