A love born almost for fun.
This and other moments of their love story were recounted on their wedding day by a projection of the day made by Foto Event studio during the party at Villa Athena.
The day began with the groom, Dario, mayor of Camastra, the small town curious to see the first citizen crown their dream of love.
In fact, the bride and groom chose the town's small mother church to exchange vows, then in the evening with friends and relatives they moved to Villa Athena's pistachio grove. They celebrated, and surrounded by the cheerfulness of the guests, who were present from the very first moments of this unique day in the bride and groom's life.
The bride looked ravishing in her dress from the Majorca Showroom collection and her hair was gathered in a simple yet sophisticated hairstyle with fresh flowers.
The bride's entrance is definitely one of the most intense moments of the wedding, they remember well the emotion of their meeting at the altar... but also the serenity when the priest took charge:
Villa Athena Farm is a unique location, because as it is the only pistachio grove within the Valley of Temples. It is impossible to resist the temptation to make it a theatre for a few shots of the bride and groom.
Just before entering the resort, we took a detour by stopping in a field, taking advantage of the warm Sicilian sunset light.
While waiting for the bride and groom, guests were entertained with delicious finger food, crispy fritters and other tasty appetisers.
The garden where the wedding dinner took place was impeccably laid out and lit in a very atmospheric way, all chosen by an exceptional wedding planner: the bride herself.
Villa Athena is the only 5-star hotel situated within the Archaeological Park of the Valley of the Temples, which UNESCO has declared a World Heritage Site, with an exclusive direct entrance.
A magnificent residence of the end of the 18th century, it is at the same time a custodian of the classical traces that may be discovered almost everywhere, like in some treasure trove.
