Jennifer and Ben – Florentine Castle wedding
One of the loveliest events of 2010, mostly because Jennifer and Ben are one of the loveliest couples! Take a moment (actually, a few minutes) to see the movie through to the end, to listen to the speeches and comments from family and friends.
Jennifer and Ben wanted an elegant wedding, but one that would be fun and relaxing for their guests.
The intimate party of 40 family and friends flew in mostly from America, and the couple arranged, with our assistance, an event and prolonged stay in Florence that would be memorable, and relaxing for the guests.
Details such as well coordinated transport are essential, and the choice of holding a blessing ceremony on site at the castle made the day a romantic, personal and a fairy-tale experience.
They opted for a whole day rental on a large Florentine castle, and held a symbolic blessing in the gardens.
This was followed by long, relaxing cocktails and canape’s on the terraces of the castello, and a seated evening meal in the castle dining room. A long, single table, decorated with fresh calla lilies and hydrangeas, in keeping with the color theme, made the meal special – completed, of course, with top Tuscan dishes, and wines from the castle’s own production.
The wedding cake was a traditional Millefoglie, with a twist: the chef came among the guests, and built the delicious fresh cake while the guests watched, and that led on to a night of dancing and good conversation.
