Armenian wedding in Florence
Destination wedding in Tuscany
I want to go back almost a year and share with you this beautiful armenian wedding in Florence. The couple flew from America choosing the city of Florence to organize their destination wedding in Tuscany. The ceremony in full Armenian style was celebrated in the church of Santi Apostoli, few steps from Ponte Vecchio and the center of Florence.
I met Tigran and Rosemary in person the day before the wedding during their engagement session in Florence (which you can find here in the blog), two shy people with a great desire to celebrate this day and share their love with close relatives and friends. The day, illuminated by a constant sun, gave us emotions from the beginning; in fact I had the change to tell a different story and culture than our own. The story of Tigran and Rosemary’s day began in the morning when, after getted ready, they met for a First Look with Ponte Vecchio as background. Later after a few photos in the center of Florence we returned to celebrate with the guests dancing and savoring rum and chocolate.
Armenian wedding in Florence – The Ceremony
Then we reach the place where the ceremony took place. The church was well suited to the type of wedding: small, welcoming and perfectly decorated by the floral arrangements of Silvia, the wedding planner that helped Tigran and Rosemary to organize their Armenian wedding in Florence.
After the ceremony, while taking a few couple shoots in Piazzale Michelangelo with a view of the city, the guests moved to the location chosen by the newlyweds: Villa La Vedetta, a beautiful villa just above Florence where after a short initial aperitif the reception continued with dinner outdoors.
Here it was impossible not to notice the chosen arrangements, all in shades of pink, white and gold, and in addition to these the view that offers the terrace of the villa is really to take your breath away. The guests then dined enjoying the sunset over Florence along with the emotions of the groom and parents’ speeches, and then finished celebrating dancing the typical Armenian dances.
