On a beautiful spring day at the beginning of the month of May in a Castle in Chianti with about 80 guests we made it happen!
Many foreign couples planning their destination wedding in Tuscany consider the month of May for their wedding. While the end of month feels almost like summer already, with longer daylight and steady weather, the beginning of the month can be more tricky and risky weather wise. For Richard and Tierney’s wedding we completely lucked out! Beautiful blue sky, warm temperature and flowers in bloom in every corner of the castle to decorate their wedding day!
Spring weddings are also great because there are so many flowers in season that you have endless options in terms of shape and colors you can choose from. Many of them are really only available up to the first week of May in Tuscany because after that, due to the warmer temperatures they won’t be able to look fresh for the entire wedding day. Tulips are not an exception to that and we were lucky enough to be able to use purple tulips as the signature flower of the entire event.
Food! Tuscan cuisine follows what is in season and here is what Richard & Tierney chose to delight their guests’ palates:
