A Peaceful and Amusing Country Wedding
Silvia and Mauro are two young guys living in Milan. They decided to get married on Piacenza hills. You will know more about this reading on.
A very special and intimate wedding. There were about 50 guests which is quite uncommon for an Italian couple but still very warm. However it was perfect in every single detail.
Piacenza vine hills are just wonderful and they meet lovely fields where you could also see wild and farm animals. Piacenza cuisine is very rustic but really delicious.
Silvia and Mauro decided for this area because of their aunt Mary. She owns a stunning house on top of a hill with great view. A wonderful house with glass walls, different levels, a swimming pool and stunning terraces.
So Silvia and Mauro decided to get married just here!
Silvia got ready to aunt Mary’s house. Hairdresser, make up artist and wedding dress stylist reached her there. Silvia’s three aunts took the opportunity too!
Mauro got ready to Cascina Scottina a rustic cascina but totally renewed with great taste.
Religious ceremony was held in a little church in Carpaneto Piacentino among hills, lawns and narrow roads and country fields. Silence was magic and time seemed running very slow.
Mauro was waiting for her wife to be with the little 4 years old flower girl and her lovelt white roses bouquet.
Until finally Silvia came! She had such a wonderful smile!
Church was just lovely, very simple, very country style.
The church itself is very pretty with its painting, floors and mosaic windows.
A very moving ceremony was accompanied by a lyric singer.
When bride and groom came out of the church, sun came out too and it was al wonderful among rice and rose petals!
All guests reached Cascina Scottina for a lovely aperitif while Silvia and Marco took some time for stunning pictures to aunt Mary’s house.
They were really great and had lot of fun!
After that they reached their guests for the aperitif.
It was all arranged in the internal courtyard of the Cascina. They tasted delicious finger food and wines in the sunset.
Candles begun to en light the party.
Dinner was served inside the Cascina. All was really delicious.
They had the lovely idea to spend some time at the same table of the children. All created sweet poems and drawings for the newly weds.
A DJ played jazz music during the dinner and some dancing music for the after dinner party.
All, including grand parents and children danced!
And at the very end, the wedding cake with all the children stealing chocolate from that!
Last but not least a surprise: the flying lanterns.
All guests came out to light up them and leave them flying in the sky with a Micheal Jackson love song in the background! Such a moving and magic moment for Silvia and anyone else.
Surprises were not finished yet! Cascina staff arranged a sweet and cake buffet, a cigar bar and local liquors tasting with the decoraton of a lot of candles.
A wonderful party in a mild night of the end of Summer.
