Traditionally, we have the idea that a wedding has to be a big celebration, with dozens of friends and family members. An occasion where the bride and groom are the center of attention: they often end up entertaining their guests instead of just enjoying their special day.

There is another possibility, though: an intimate wedding for two. Your only concern will be to spend as much time as possible with your loved one, diving into your feelings for each other. This is what you can do with an elopement in Italy – and this is exactly what Shauna and Luis did, creating a wonderful and unique event.

Shauna and Luis’s elegant wedding at Villa La Selva Wine Resort

Shauna and Luis are two exquisite, friendly people from Minnesota, who decided to swear eternal love to one other in the beautiful Villa La Selva, an amazing wine resort nested among the hills of Tuscany.

The day started with the preparation of the two spouses-to-be: every detail of their wedding outfit contributed to the elegance of the result – they were both absolutely charming! Then came the first look: it took place in a picturesque boulevard surrounded by cypresses, and it was a moment full of emotion.

The civil ceremony – that you can celebrate at Villa La Selva Wine Resort – was held in the garden, beneath an arch decorated with chic and soft flowers: the perfect surroundings for a dreamy elopement in Italy! The bride and groom read their personally written vows and said “I do” in a magic atmosphere.

After that touching moment, we took some romantic photos all around the venue: Villa La Selva offers so many astounding spots that we didn’t even have to leave the property! The light was splendid for the whole time, and the strong feelings of the newlyweds did the rest.

It was a pleasure to spend such a significant day with them, from the beginning to the first dance together, capturing their love with my photographs – and helping them remember their elopement in Italy forever!

Your unforgettable elopement in Italy

If you choose to honor your relationship in a way where you and your emotions are the only thing that matters, then an elopement in Italy is the perfect solution. Why? Because the idyllic setting you can find is a crucial element to turn your special event into an unforgettable one!

And if you wish to cherish the memory of it, I will feel happy and privileged to take evocative photos of your wonderful wedding for two!
