Man, we genuinely can’t put into words how much we love these two people and their wedding in Verona! If there was a time machine that could transport us back to May in Italy with Anna and Riccardo we’d totally jump in it! They let us into their hearts, treated us like old friends and it was one of those wedding days that we would give anything to be a part of again.
We arrived in Venice a couple of days before-hand and Anna and Riccardo were kind enough to take a day off and show us the sights and sounds of this surreal and amazing city. At the end of the day they took us to one of their favourite restaurants (you know the food is going to be good when the menu is only in Italian) just of the main tourist strip for some of the best gnocchi we’ve ever had and then we jumped in the car and headed towards Verona together.
Anna, being in the wedding industry herself (she’s a mega-talented photographer) knew the exact vibe she wanted to have for her wedding day… honest, fun, zero stress, good grub and focusing on what really matters to them most. Right away it was very obvious to us that Anna and Riccardo’s connection with family and close friends was the most important part of their lives and their wedding day reflected this.
Anna grew up in Verona so this beautiful city holds a very special place in her heart. After a relaxing morning getting ready in her family home, it was just a short drive to the church and then a fun walk with friends through the city to Caffe Dante Ristorante for their laid-back reception in the main square.
To top things off we were even able to catch the incredible Verona evening light for some portraits.
Anna and Riccardo were two of the most caring, down-to-earth and genuine people we’ve ever met and thinking of these guys and their wedding day brings a smile to our faces.
