From the Bride, Allison:
We just wanted a day that was filled with love and joy with our closest family members who knew our relationship best. The location of our wedding, Camporsevoli was secluded and peaceful which we felt was perfect for our weekend there. The whole village was pretty much empty on our wedding day, so we got to drive down all the Italian country roads all by ourselves.
There were several particularly special moments. We both loved the vintage convertible that we drove after the ceremony – especially with the floral arrangement on the back which made it feel really magical. The sign on the back of our chairs at dinner read ‘forever your’s’. The sign was made by a friend of mine who is a calligrapher back in California. While Joshua and I were long distance (for five years) we would often write each other love letters. I’m not sure how it started but we would always sign the letters ‘forever your’s’ at the end. I gifted my dad a handkerchief with an embroidered inscription. My dad has dealt with his disability for most of my life so it was important to me to let him know how proud I was of him for walking me down the aisle. The most memorable moment was our first dance. It was raining at that point and very windy. We didn’t actually have a sound system for outdoors so we had to blast the music from inside the villa and just open all the doors and windows. But we danced in the middle of the lawn, under the lights – with our family huddled in the corner to keep out of the rain – it felt perfect to us.
