From The Bride… We met each other working together in investment banking and our relationship began developing rapidly after few meetings. I remember that my first thoughts was like “no no no, no relationships with colleagues.” But sometimes rules are meant to be broken.

After being together for 2 years we’ve planned our regular trip, but that time my husband suddenly invited my Mom to join us. Later I found that my Mom was the carrier of my engagement ring. I remember that evening when we came to beautiful restaurant when you are sitting inside a beautiful aquarium watching the fish swimming around and I asked him “why he doesn’t want to take off his jacket?” It was quite warm inside the restaurant. Then everything became very clear.

He had quite big engagement box with the ring inside, so he couldn’t keep it in his trousers. After the moment he proposed I was so impressed with the engagement box design that I forgot to check out the ring. The engagement ring was handmade with the picture of a chipmunk – this is a special symbol of our family from the first months we are together. At the beginning it was his joke calling me “chipmunk” but we’ve both got so used to this “nickname” that we now collect chipmunk or squirrel trinkets from every trip.

Both of us were sure that we’d have our wedding somewhere far away from home. We wanted all our guests feel special. It took us long time to find that perfect place and perfect wedding planner. We weren’t in hurry looking for the right place, but when we found Villa Regina Teodolinda we knew that we’d celebrate our wedding nowhere else!

Thank you to our wedding planner, because she helped us plan everything in 3 months total, and it turned out wonderful. The location was just perfect with a beautiful villa, amazing food, plus lake and mountain views. The one thing we regret is that it all passed too, too fast!

Travel to Cinque Terre with Christine Doneé

Oh these travel features never fail to leave me on a bottomless search for flights and hotel reservations. It’s a problem. And after pouring over all these stunning images of Cinque Terre (a place that has been on my bucket list forever) from Christine Doneé, I basically know what my Saturday will look like – spending more time than I should admit right here.

From Christine DoneéWhen planning our wedding in Tuscany, we decided to not only honeymoon in Italy, but to also road trip throughout the country for several weeks. Cinque Terre became one of our last stops in the country, and it completely took our breath away.

Driving to the villages of Cinque Terre meant going through some pretty rugged terrain first. Winding roads and thick trees lead the way to the coast, until miraculously you stumble right onto a colorful town by the sea.

With its’ pastel colors, quiet nature and friendly locals it’s easy to see why this is considered to be one of the best destinations in all of Italy.

Comprised of 5 villages, each unique in and of itself, Cinque Terre offered us a a chance to really get to know our environment.

The greatest joy in traveling is learning the character and nuances of the place you are in: the colors, the attitude, the people; together, they come together to create a tone. And it was a perfect match for the two of us.

We sun-bathed underneath colorful umbrellas and chatted with locals as they went about their daily business.

We drank prosecco in the evenings while enjoying the echoed sounds of live music through the streets.

We took trains to and from each village and watched the sky come alive with color at sundown. And we savored every minute as if it were a dream.

With so much charm and beauty, Cinque Terre is a must for any vacationer.

From Stefano SantucciHi, this is Regina and Ryan destination wedding in Tuscany.

They are both Americans who live a few miles away from New York. They decided to get married in Tuscany at a wonderful country chic wedding in Tuscany where everything was planned in detail.

Ryan is an important producer and Regina is a lovely girl with Italian origins. The ceremony took place in one of the most beautiful churches I’ve ever seen, “l’Abbazia di Monte Oliveto Maggiore”, immersed in the forests and fields of Tuscany, in Buonconvento. After the moving ceremony, the Bride and Groom celebrated with their relatives and friends at Casali di Bibbiano, with the best Italian food and wine.

It has been an incredible and full day full of emotions and very well planned, R+R wedding started their big day at the Abbazia di Monteuliveto and finished with stunning fireworks performed during the cutting cake.
