We just had another wonderful wedding here in the Chianti which was both fun and emotional.
Destination weddings are very special and we feel very proud to have people who want to celebrate their love with their friends and families here at the Fattoria.
The entire group arrived on Friday late afternoon where they proceeded to check in, freshen up and then start the festivities with a wine tasting of our products. This is the best way to start your stay in a winery!
A short presentation and then in the cellars to enjoy the experience of the art of making wine. Mario and I escorted the group explaining all the details of our products and filling their glasses with the Baccus nectare.
Back to the pool’ s patio, with a wonderful sunset, the barbacue buffet started: zucchini bruschette, vegetable pies, focacce with rosemary, pork ribs, sausages, chicken, capocollo, salad, potatoes, creamy pine nut cake, Fattoria red wine and more…
All seemed to be as in a big family. Irene was sparkling. Marcel had eyes for his guests but never taking his gaze off of Irene. The looks between themselves were so touching.
One day was ended very happily.
Now the important one:
In the morning there was the big buffet breakfast for all except Irene and Marcel who ate in their rooms. The hairdressers arrived and worked their magic even if they didn’t have to work with Irene as she was glowing! Marcel got dressed and then went to pick up his bride at the Villa.
They then went to Siena to take some photos.
Then it was back to the Fattoria for the ceremony on the terrace under the oak tree overlooking Siena.
followed by dancing, dinner, more dancing, lots of toasts and a lot of fun! After midnight, they strolled off hand in hand to spend their first night as husband and wife.
We want to wish Irene and Marcel all the great things possible for their lives together and hope that one day they will come back with their children to show them the place where their dream destination wedding took place. Viva gli sposi!
