Who gets married on August 31st is a hero.. or a romantic.
In fact we were expecting a muggier weather but all in all just one shirt was enough.
I met Luke and Gaia a few months ago, they came to visit us in the studio with a clear idea: no posed pictures, no photos with relatives – except for those 3 or 4 that would start a war if they didn’t take a picture together – in short, they want something sober. Of course, I thought, their wishes come first but when we made a quick trip to Tenuta La Valle in Vada, to chat about the organization of the great day Luca told me he has a cellar in Livorno!
Alt, we’re not talking about wine, we’re talking about boats! Luca’s brother is part of a rower’s team and aware of the possibility to use all the equipment, how could we miss out on photographing a boat trip of the newlyweds in the Livorno channels?
After the emotional civil ceremony during which was quoted the extract from “The Prophet” by Gibran, we went to uncork the first bottle of sparkling wine in the cellar where the brother’s team had armed the boat and with the rowers bodysuits were waiting for us to celebrate.
After our little excursion on the canal we headed to the estate, surrounded by pine and cypress trees, that give you a feeling of inner peace. An elegant buffet, a delicious dinner and lots of fun – especially the hilarious gag of some friends of Luca dressed up with wigs who made fun in every way possible on the marriage between an anesthetist and an orthopedic surgeon – who accompanied the bride and groom and their guests throughout the evening while we continued to photograph.
A heartfelt thanks to Luca, Gaia and all of their guests for this wonderful day!
