Castello di Vicchiomaggio – Greve in Chianti
Juliana and Greg were get married in the beautiful Castle Vicchiomaggio in Chianti area this summer.
Here there is their story with their words:
We met through our mutual friend Erin-Rose who was Juliana’s best friend from law school. Erin-Rose was looking for a flat mate and advertised online and Greg ended up becoming that flat mate!
Greg proposed one year earlier in August 2016 in a vineyard in Chianti, Tuscany during a sunset walk. He got down on one knee to pop the question in white trousers!
Our inspiration for the wedding was a classic fairytale like a children’s story. A castle in the hills, soft pinks and elegant navy blue, and lots of candles and green moss as a bed under the roses to create the imagery of a love story set in an enchanted garden.
We also wanted to combine the indoors and outdoors for the reception by using spot lighting on the table like you would find in a ball room as opposed to string lights.
I wanted as the sun went down, there was always live classical music playing and the lights would slowly come up as the evening went on.
We wanted to create a romantic and intimate atmosphere so everyone would feel like they were on a date with their loved ones. It was not only special for Greg and I but also for everyone else as well.
One moment in particular we loved was when we had our first dance. We invited guests to join us and so many did all around us. Surrounded by friends and family all embracing each other we saw so much love around us.
That really made us happy.
This small selection of photos from the first day. It was a very hard task do the selection for this article. Indeed Juliana and Greg have prepared a so elegant wedding, full of events and entertainment.
Me and my second shooter Alessio we had so many things to photograph. We are very proud of the result!
