M&S picked the chance to spend a brief holiday with their friends and relatives. Our region has so much to offer, and this couple had the nice idea to plan a full day of activities.
The first night they had a welcome aperitif and a light dinner.
The day after Lorenza held a pasta demonstration in the old stable and we set up a l0ng table under the pergola! Was a great lunch with fresh pici – the traditional hand-made pasta – and tagliatelle!
In the afternoon a bus came to pick them up to bring them to a wine tasting in Trequanda, a medieval small town 20 min away from Il Rigo. In the evening they had their dinner in Pienza. That gave us a bit of time for the last preparations for the big day!
On the morning of the wedding day the couple and the parents left early for the official wedding in San Quirico! The Fiat 500 was a bit fickle but in the end they could leave!
They were back for the symbolic wedding on the terrace, with all their friends!
After that a country buffet was waiting for them in the courtyard. After a little pause the dinner was set. Outside, in front of the house, under a vault of lights and candles, with wild flower bunches that Nadia and Luisa picked the day before! Well, May is definitely the best month for wild flower decorations! Nigella, sweet pees, elder flowers, wild mint, spikes and lots of different kinds we found!
As wedding cake we prepared our classic – actually was Lorenza and Vittorio’s wedding cake – the half-frozen cake with meringues and hazelnuts, served with strawberries and edible flowers! I think it was a success!
The evening was a bit chilly so we decided to set up the party inside. The atmosphere was anyway so nice, thanks to hundreds of tea light that we put everywhere!
