What about getting married in an ancient Borgo in Tuscany?
Viviana and Davide have chosen to tie the knot in the ancient Borgo Castelvecchi in the heart of the Chianti area in the beautiful Tuscany. The Borgo is a rural hamlet with a terrific view of the Tuscan beauties. It is a historical mansion located in the village of Radda in Chianti, near Siena.
Getting married in the Chianti area.
An ancient hamlet in Tuscany is such a beautiful venue for a wedding. Vineyards, gentle hills and cypresses created the perfect cozy atmosphere.
Warm sun and clear sky have been the protagonists, September’s colors and its mild weather made everything even more special.
Viviana and Davide’s family and friends have come to join the future couple at the venue and gathered for a 3-day celebration, relaxing and having fun in this astonishing location. The celebrations started with a welcome dinner alfresco in the amazing courtyard of the Borgo. Viviana and Davide have chosen to celebrate their wedding at Pieve di Santa Maria Novella, an ancient church located on a hill overlooking the beautiful nature of Chianti. The view from there is stunning!
After a touching catholic ceremony, the newlyweds and their guests have reached the gardens of Borgo Castelvecchi to enjoy a refreshing aperitif served by the staff in a colorful vintage caravan.
Wedding reception in Borgo Castelvecchi, Chianti
The Borgo’s courtyard square hosted the wedding reception. The decoration arrangement made by Giulia Lazzarini Design was truly amazing. Giulia recreated a romantic and bucolic style with candlelight and fairy lights. There was a beautiful luminous neon light saying "Drunk in Love" hung on the wall, a surprise arranged by the bride for her groom. There was also a special corner dedicated to sweets and sugared almonds (typical Italian sweets, gifted during weddings by the newlyweds) decorated by illuminated mirrors and tons of candles. The party ended with a delicious wedding cake cut under a secular tree with lights hanging on it.
