The truth is I haven’t been in my own kitchen in a month of weekends, due to the move, having company and this weekend will be no different as I’ll be heading to Dublin to see my father for a few hours. If you have tips / sites / links, please leave them in the comments or send them to my twitter account with a @rosso reply!
One of those lovely weekends I spent deep in the heart of Tuscany at a friend’s wedding. I’m going to share a few pictures here with you of “before the ceremony”
The vintage car she had to take her, her father and her daughter to the ceremony and the bridal couple “gli sposi / sposini” to the reception.
The flower girl, also her daughter, tugging at an itchy tag on her beautiful dress. Later, she would run around the reception in comfortable clothes.
Italians are known for their fashion sense, and weddings are a great time to get some inspiration…or to laugh at some of the outlandish outfits. But I loved the purple Converse that the bride’s teenage brother wore with his suit.
I loved the bride’s dress, especially the little shrug she had to keep her shoulders covered. I find more and more brides are straying away from pure white dresses and are moving toward cream – my own was an off-white.
The bouquet is one of my favorite things about weddings, especially when vibrant colors are framed by a creamy dress.
It was unfortunately overcast for most of the weekend, and while it didn’t rain on the bride, the sun did come out right as they were exiting the church to give us a bit of blue sky.
What are your favorite scenes from a wedding? Do you have a favorite pose or behind-the-scenes photo you love seeing?
Next….after the ceremony, the couple gets showered with rice…and pasta!

I just love those purple Chucks! SO cute…some friends of ours wore matching classic black ones at their wedding.
And who can beat that car?

I love these photos! In just a few pics, they captured the moment beautifully. :-)
LOVE the purple shoes!!!
I really like those cute purple sneakers too! So adorable and a nice unique touch.
The All Stars are my favorite – although I have to say not that popular in Europe as it is in the USA.
Brilliant photos, especially the sneakers!!
I never knew your father lived in Dublin!!

@anne – actually he doesn’t, I’m just lucky to meet up with him while he’s in the UK for a visit!

I *love* the picture of the bride twirling around – simply gorgeous.
A wedding in Tuscany! How wonderful that would be.
These are excellent photos. You have been able to convey so much with just these few photos. Beautiful.

Where is the church??????
I love reading about Italy. Seggiano is my favorite place to go when traveling in Tuscany
