Now that the fireworks are over, it’s time to get back to Italy Week on the blog! Part I of Svetlana and Leon’s Italian Destination Wedding is ready for you and I can’t wait!! It was such a treat to join these two in one of their favorite places to visit with all their friends and family from around the world.
When Svetlana originally approached me to photograph her wedding day, they planned to marry in New Jersey… but after rethinking their plans… the pair decided to scratch their original idea and plan an intimate destination event in a place they both love so much, Italy! The Hotel Villa Beccaris in Monforte d’Alba, a village in the heart of the Barolo wine country, hosted the multi-day event for their closest friends and family.
Today I’m sharing the first part of this stunning affair! Svetlana and Leon, thank you so much for including me in such a special week of your lives. We were truly honored to be present for such a heartfelt, meaningful celebration of love and friends and most importantly, family! Congrats you guys!! And stay tuned for Part II, coming up tomorrow!! I can’t wait!
