Valentina&Ruben – a Tuscan dream

I hope you will enjoy this post about Valentina and Ruben’s romantic wedding, their charming portraits captured in the golden light of sunset in Il Rigo’s backyard._PA25811-ModificaThis young couple completely fell in love with the rolling hills of Val d’Orcia and chose to celebrate the ceremony on our terrace, facing the town of Pienza._PA25487_PAR1774At the time, I remember the garden had some lovely asters blooming, which I combined with grey sage leaves, purple cosmos and zinnias for the bouquet. The bridesmaids held their own bunches as well, with an additional touch of yellow zinnias._PAR1649_PAR1789_PA25523 _PA25536 _PA25517 _MG_9834 _MG_9883_PA25547There couldn’t have been better weather for this ceremony en-plain-air. The brick fence of the terrace perfectly frames the landscape._MG_0076 _MG_0077_PA25557_PA25590_MG_0156_PA25658_PA25768 _MG_0270I think there is nothing like a glorious table in the sunlight to capture the essence of a Tuscan late summer wedding! It’s all about enjoying the last long days of the year, storing some warmth for the winter and carrying home fond memories of happy hours spent together!_PAR1963Brown recycled paper menus printed at home, wooden pegs with wheat stems for name tags, recycled jars and brown bottles to serve as vases to display our organic flowers. _PAR1956 _MG_0303 _MG_0307 _MG_0328 _MG_0420 _MG_0445 _MG_0451 _MG_0526 _PA25797-Modifica _PA25837 _PA25842After dinner, we served the wedding cake in the courtyard: a semi-freddo cake with hazelnuts and red fruits decorated with edible marigolds, cosmos and blue cornflowers. Every part of our decorations demonstrates sustainability — even the garnishes on the cake! That’s our way of sharing our ethical beliefs and our love for our countryside!_PA25916 _PAR2014 _PAR2053-Modifica_PAR2006 _PAR2169 _PAR2334_PAR2038
