Hmmm where did we leave off? I believe it was with the luckiest shot ever.. .the rainbow, the kiss, the amazing veil.
So let's rewind a bit and go back to the ceremony.....the day was sunny, rainy, sunny, rainy, sunny, RAINY... so the ceremony was moved under the tent. Which as it turns out is a GORGEOUS place to get married, lots of filtered, creamy white light pouring down on you and all your loved ones.. perfection!
Kate and Riccardo are so loved by their family, so loved! You could feel it in the air around you, you could see it on the face of everyone there.
There were many people who spoke during the ceremony, some in English, some in Italian but the message was the same they all were simply so happy for them both Riccardo and Kate.
I just love this photo of Riccardo listening to his brothers speech.
Look at all that beautiful light, I don't think there could have been a more perfect place or time for this wedding. And I adore the bridesmaids dresses, the colors are gorgeous... and I have to say I could not picture this color combination together but once I saw it I was in love.
Kate listening to Riccardo's vows(they wrote their own), one of my favorite images of the day, including the rainbow picture. :)
My absolute favorite part of every wedding.... the first dance. I think it's the point where it really starts to sink in for the couple that they are married. The looks they give each other, the nervous laughs, the quiet seconds of reveling in the moment.. I love it all!
At the reception there were more speeches...more outpourings of love for Kate and Riccardo.
And there was dancing....
and Riccardo played for us and more dancing, including some Irish step dancing complete with a chorus line of little ones!
Thank you again to Kate and Riccardo for making us part of special day, it was a perfect couple of days. Paul and I wish you all the best in all you do!
PS almost done!
