Country-chic Wedding with a Hint of Vintage in the Val d’Orcia

12 june 2020

Francesca and Alessandro are an out of the ordinary couple. She is a doctor and he is an engineer, and they both live and work abroad. The classic example of competent young Italians who leave their own country with a bit of a heavy heart in order to follow their professional dreams but who continue to nurture their relationships with family and friends.
For this reason, they decided to bring together the people that they love for their wedding in the Val d’Orcia in a celebration that included over 150 guests in the splendid Borgo di Castelvecchio.

The day, which started off with good weather, was interrupted by a sudden storm, but, luckily, the magnificent summer sunshine appeared right before the ceremony, held in the small church of the hamlet. Here Francesco and Alessandro said their I Dos surrounded by their loved ones and then enjoyed extended cocktails poolside with a view overlooking the Val d’Orcia.
The theme of the event, country-chic with a hint of vintage, unfolded on the table with an assortment of vintage vases, bronze candelabras, and colourful wildflowers along with an elegant place setting on long wood tables and with menus and place cards decorated with a nineteenth-century print.
The same graphic was used for the very beautiful seating plan printed on cloth which was one of the main focus points of the pre-dinner drinks. After the cutting of the cake, a classic Italian millefeuille, the party carried on with music and drinks until dawn.
