Can you even imagine whisking your family and friends away to Italy to watch you say I do? I most certainly can, because that dream has danced in my head a time or two. But it was reality for this gorgeous couple, and the proof is in the gorgeous pictures from Iconoclash Photography. All that is gorgeous about Italy and all that is gorgeous about this couple shine through each image, and you can see even more in the full gallery of images!
From Teresa of Iconoclash Photography… Joanna’s family is from England and Jewish, Erik’s family is from Canada and Catholic, and they met in London, England. To privilege neither part of their families (and because they both love Italy), they decided to get married in the medieval Castello di Monterone in the hilly countryside of Umbria. Their ceremony was one of the most beautiful and personal I’ve ever witnessed. Belonging to two different faiths, they decided to have a humanist officiant and included their favourite traditions of both Jewish and Catholic origin. They also wrote their own vows, in which Joanna, among other things, promised Erik “baked goods for the rest of your life.” Almost all guests travelled to Italy especially to celebrate with Joanna and Erik. They were amply rewarded with views of the Italian hills, the scent of wild-growing lavender and a lovely, laid-back celebration that lasted well into the night.
