An exciting vineyard wedding in Piedmont, a touching ceremony in the wine cellar between the wine barrels and the exposed brick vaults.
An Italian vineyard wedding
Luca and Kristina met in San Francisco, but to celebrate their union, they chose the scenery of the Langhe. These lands have a particular and unique atmosphere that fascinates. It’s characterized by the many wine cellars, with the scent of must and freshly picked grapes.
To include this reality, the wedding ceremony took place inbetween the wine barrels and under the exposed brick vaults. It was a moment full of emotion, unusual but totally collected and involving.
The wine cellars have a history of centuries. They are places where the wine slowly acquires its energy in addition to the flavor and the scent… here, among the barrels, we placed the chairs for the guests.
Behind the celebration table we put a bamboo arch with orange-toned flowers: color palette of the wedding.
The union between Kristina and Luca was very emotional for all participants, both for the suggestive setting and for the strong harmony that unites the couple. The guests arrived from all over the world and stayed in the elegant estate of the villa. Here they spent some pleasant moments with the couple before the big day.
The traditions of a vineyard wedding in Piedmont
Kristina was beautiful in her romantic lace dress. She lived with emotion the moment of preparation with her three bridesmaids. Their dresses were tailored made and made of the same fabric but in different models.
The gift of an amaretto, a typical Italian biscuit, wrapped in a differently colored paper, was the little sweet present for friends and family present at the ceremony.
The favors where made in Bulgaria, Kristina’s native country. Small bottles of schnapps and jars of jam, placed on wooden bases, all personalized with labels that showed the graphics of the wedding and the name of the couple. During dinner, everyone enjoyed the typical Bulgarian ballets.
The bride and groom had the chance to take pictures in the middle of the vineyards. Spectacular photos of the shadows and lights created by the vine shoots and leaves, in a unique place made by light, earth and heaven.
The aperitif took place in the lakefront space. An original wedding table plan, made with an old door with cards applied, indicated to the guests the name of their table.
The “Ghiacciaia” – ancient wine cellar
Another particularitie of this day was the cake cutting as it happened in an even more charming and almost mysterious atmosphere, created by the “ghiacciaia“. In the past it was used to store food and wine with snow from the mountains. Today it’s an interesting architectural testimony of the past. With lots of lights it was a really magical moment.
The party then continued with dances and funny moments and it was unforgettable for the young couple.
