It is one of the most sought-after wedding locations in Umbria, even by foreign couples who choose our region to get married with either religious, civil or symbolic rite.
In fact, the abbey offers an extraordinary Longobard church with ancient frescoes that has been declared a national heritage and monument.

Wedding rites in high uniform
In the setting of the Abbey of San Pietro in Valle d and d experienced the most beautiful day of their lives among friends, family and fellow soldiers.
Connor in fact is an active USAF pilot like his father. Accompanied by some of his closest friends, he was married in full uniform in the Abbey’s Lombard church.
The excitement of preparing the uniform together with his dad, also in high uniform, and his mom was really palpable. On the other hand, Erika got ready with her bridesmaids in the abbey suite.
It was a wonderful experience to follow this wedding in high uniform. It is not always possible to experience so many traditional moments as in this event.
Beginning with the dressing of the groom together with his military groomsmen, it was a succession of small symbolic gestures that were very heartfelt.
One of the traditional rites of a wedding in high uniform is the exit of the bride and groom from the church. In fact, they are waited at the door and stopped by the sabers of two military men who, barring the way for the boys, ask them to pay pledge with a kiss.
Once the way is cleared, the military man on the bride’s side pats her bottom with his saber.
Another truly touching moment was the memorial speech during the speeches. A long monologue delivered in absolute silence and recollection, punctuated by the word “remember.” Next to the bride and groom’s table was a single table, set to symbolize friends who are no longer with us.
You’ve Lost That Loving Feeling from “Top Gun” movie
To finish, before the first dance, a Top Gun moment with the boys and groom singing “You’ve Lost That Loving Feeling” as in the famous scene from the movie.
