2 wonderful days in Tuscany, 2 wonderful weddings in Tuscany (Part 1)
I leave for a new wedding weekend in Tuscany.
Two days. Two marriages.
August 1st – Sami and Francesca
The curves between the immense hills are sweet and pleasant to drive through.
I slow down and open the window.
It’s not too hot, I hear the wind and Scoot Matthew on the radio.
From the balcony of the first floor of the Villa Cini, Francesca can see everything.
She can see guests arrive.
She peeks at Sami, ready, who speaks with the calm and reassuring celebrant or with the always smiling singer.
Claudia, the owner, is attentive and present.
Everything is perfect here.
The late afternoon sun is warm.
Guests sit in the shade of an ancient tree.
Beyond the wall the hills of the color of the vine grapes. A few bees shoot free in the peace of Tuscany.
Sami is a bit nervous but we all reassure him. It’s his first marriage …. but not for us 🙂
I come back to Francesca, the room is crowded. She is focused, very young and beautiful.
Dad hugs her tightly. With his eyes looking out the window.
She takes the bouquet and I slowly guide her to Sami.
When they see each other, she, smiling, greets him with her hand.
Sami motionless, smiles back.
This is only the beginning of two fantastic days, but today I want to stop here with Francesca and Sami.
Tomorrow, another marriage and another story.
