Autumn Wedding details

Autumn Wedding details in Italy … When we spoke on the phone the first time, Alessandra gave me an appointment in the center of Albavilla saying “We live in the forest, I’ll take you to our home!” So following the Alessandra’s jeep through streets not exactly “easy”, we arrived to their house in the middle of the woods. The house, surrounded by a green lawn and an infinity of trees, is a renovated farmhouse by Roberto (the groom), that gave me the pleasant sensation of heat and mountains.
