Under the Tuscan Sun: Inside Wedding

The importance of dreams is a timeless concept, a beacon that guides our decisions and our path, giving meaning to the crucial moments of our lives. Each of us, in one way or another, nurtures a dream, a desire deep in our hearts, often pursued with passion and determination throughout our existence. Allison and Daniel, a young couple engaged to be married, shared a dream that was more than just a desire; it was a common goal, a destination to reach together: the dream of celebrating their love overseas. And what better place to do it than the enchanting Tuscany, a land of art, culture, and idyllic landscapes?

Allison, captivated by the beauty and timeless atmosphere of Tuscany, had studied in Florence and was particularly struck by its breathtaking landscapes and rich history. So, when the moment came to say the fateful “I do,” there was no doubt about where that magical moment would take place. The couple chose Villa La Pescaia, a hidden gem in the Tuscan Maremma, as the setting for their big day. Amid golden vineyards and ancient woods, they celebrated their love surrounded by the enchantment and beauty of the Tuscan countryside.

Discovering Tuscan Maremma

The Tuscan Maremma is a region of extraordinary beauty located along the western coast of Tuscany, characterized by a unique combination of breathtaking landscapes, rich history, and unspoiled nature. Stretching from the province of Livorno to the border with Lazio, the Maremma offers a wide variety of environments, from the sandy beaches of the Tyrrhenian Sea to the rolling hills of the hinterland, up to the peaks of the Uccellina mountains. This wild and rugged land, as described by many poets and writers, has a rich and fascinating history. In the past, the Maremma was a land scattered with unhealthy marshes, where life was difficult, and malaria was a constant threat. However, thanks to reclamation works initiated in past centuries, today the Maremma is renowned for its lush nature and biodiversity. The natural reserves, such as the Maremma Regional Park, offer a protected habitat for a variety of animal species, including the majestic red deer, the mighty wild boar, and a myriad of migratory birds.

Visitors can explore this incredible land by hiking scenic trails, spotting wildlife, and enjoying the tranquility of unspoiled nature, or by relaxing on the serene shores of the sea. The beaches of the Maremma are among the most beautiful in Tuscany, with long stretches of golden sand washed by the crystal-clear waters of the Tyrrhenian Sea. Coastal towns such as Castiglione della Pescaia, Porto Ercole, and Talamone offer the opportunity to bask in the sun, engage in water sports, and savor delicious fresh seafood dishes in local trattorias. The Maremma, in fact, is not only wild nature; it is also a land of culture and authentic traditions. Its ancient medieval villages, such as Pitigliano, Sovana, and Magliano in Toscana, fascinate tourists with their typical cobblestone streets, ancient walls, and characteristic squares. Here, visitors can immerse themselves in the millennia-old history of the region and discover the legends and stories that have shaped the Maremma over the centuries.

Allison and Daniel’s Wedding Among the Tuscan Hills

Allison and Daniel’s wedding was a magical event marking the beginning of a new chapter in their lives together. Their journey began during their senior year at university, an encounter destined to change their lives forever. After several moves and adventures, Daniel finally proposed to Allison in Chicago, marking the start of the preparations for their long-dreamed-of wedding.

Bride getting ready for her wedding

From the beginning, Allison knew that her wedding would take place abroad, a decision she shared with her mother from the early days. Her passion for Italy, its culture, cuisine, and art had always been a constant in her life. Having studied in Florence, she has a special connection with our beautiful country, and she wanted her wedding to reflect this affinity. It’s no coincidence: Allison is an incredibly creative person and personally contributed to the design and planning of the invitations, menu, place cards, and even collaborated with the flower designer to create a unique atmosphere for her wedding, reflecting the vibrant and lush nature of Tuscany.

The wedding organization was entrusted to Kaylen Davidson of Sara Judith Events, who managed to realize their dream wedding in just six months. Impeccable planning allowed the event to be structured in such a way as to guarantee moments of sharing and joy with all the guests, without any sense of rush or anxiety.

The ceremony took place at sunset, with the couple warmed by the last rays of the sun, in an enchanted and bucolic atmosphere. During the aperitif and dinner moments, Knights Club Band entertained the guests with their music, adding a touch of cheer and vitality to the event. Their performance made the atmosphere even more lively, and everyone enjoyed it. The dinner was truly unforgettable: guests could savor typical Italian culinary delights while admiring the spectacle of the Tuscan hills at twilight. Above them, a series of lights illuminated the table, and looking up at the sky, it seemed as if they were under a blanket of stars or in a cloud of dancing fireflies.

Capturing Emotions to Create Memories

Allison and Daniel’s wedding was perfectly organized. Each professional who worked for the success of this event gave their best: florists, wedding planners, photographers, and musicians created an evocative atmosphere that left all the guests speechless. During the dance with the band playing acoustically and the saxophonist, the guests really let loose and started capturing those moments with their smartphones.

Indeed, today we are all used to creating memories of our best moments with our smartphones; one might almost think that the figure of the videographer has become superfluous because we all have a tool in our pockets that allows us to take photos and record videos, perhaps even in high definition. But when it comes to such an important day, something more is needed. The magical touch of a real wedding videographer is required. A well-made wedding video is not just a recording of events; it is like an emotional journey through the most special day of your life. Every smile, every hug, every little moment becomes part of a visual story that will make you relive all those emotions every time you watch it.

Allison and Daniel’s wedding was a true triumph, so much so that it caught the attention of a prestigious wedding magazine, Inside Wedding. This recognition was made possible thanks to the talent and skill of each of us who worked on this event, and thanks to the images of wedding photographer Gabriele Fani, whose work captured the beauty and emotion of every moment with unique sensitivity. Behind every great success, there is always a team of professionals working together to create magic. This wedding is a clear example of the importance of having a well-matched team, each contributing with their expertise and creativity to make the clients’ special day truly unforgettable.

In our packages, travel and stay expenses are included in the cost because we regularly travel throughout Italy to shoot weddings. Being based in different places in Italy, we do not inflate prices for travel because we are close to major and famous wedding locations. Therefore, no matter where in Italy you choose to have your wedding, our costs remain the same.

The payment is divided in three parts:

  • 40% to block the date with signing of the contract.

  • 20% after checking the videos.

In some places drone use is unfortunately not permitted. In that case we will use 4K stock aerial footage of the location.

In a wedding we generally stay from 8 to 10 hours. For an elopement the service time ranges from 4 to 6 hours.

We always give the couple the choice of two important things:
the music and the parts of the speeches.

The music can be chosen by the couple before or after the wedding day.

For the speeches, however, we send the couple all the videos of the speeches and the couple can tell us the most important minutes they want to have in the video.

In this way we try to create a product that is as close to what the couple would like to receive.

Obviously this is not a requirement. If the couple doesn’t want to do this, they can totally rely on our personal taste.

With our videography studio, we do not directly offer photographic service. However, we do offer the “Film Frames” service, which consists of about 100+ images (vertical and horizontal) in 4k from our clips.
