Erica & Stephen

A fabulous place: the Castello di Bagnolo, ideal for an outdoor wedding, especially on bright days at the end of June, when spring becomes summer. The bride and groom are Erica and Stephen, she Italian and he is American: an “international” wedding with guests from all over the world. A big thank you to Roberta Cavaliere Wedding Planner for the excellent care in organizing this event!

Outdoor wedding ceremony, between the gardens and the castle

The love story of Erica and Stephen is beautiful. They are known during her trip to America, in an ecovillage in the Missouri countryside, the Dancing Rabbit Ecovillage. And today, on their wedding day, he is coming to Italy. Erica and Stephen in this special event have around him many friends, Italian and English words mingle in a party that will grow until the evening.

Here we are in the gardens of the Castle, where everything is set up to perfection, and the musicians of the Paranza del Geco create the atmosphere. The ceremony is in two languages, with many speeches that add emotion and intensity to the event. Erica and Stephen join in marriage with the sand ritual, and exchange the hand-built rings, that lie on twigs woven like a nest. The song “Home” by Edward Sharpe And The Magnetic Zeros, sung by everyone, seals this unforgettable moment!

Wedding reception at the Castello di Bagnolo, Italy

So many soap bubbles to celebrate the union of Erica and Stephen, and then a short walk to the place where the reception is set up, in a truly enchanting panoramic position. Celebrating the wedding at Castello di Bagnolo, Italy, means being in a location that also offers many ideas for beautiful portraits, and when the sun sets is the right time to steal for a few minutes the couple at the reception, and take lots of photos with the beautiful scenery of the Castle.

The dinner starts with other parents’ speeches, and then the party takes off. Launch of the bouquet, cutting of the cake, lots of dances: everything takes place outdoors, under the stars. The “take away” photos that we print on the moment give to all the guests a memory of this magical event. And as we know, the photos have no language, they have no boundaries and they do not even have time limits: they will keep forever the emotions of the fantastic marriage of Erica and Stephen.
