With only 17 guests attending, the wedding of Sarah and Jared was the epitome of a beautiful and intimate affair. The dining table was decorated with regal purple flowers and candles in glass vases which exudes an elegant feel. When lit, the chandeliers and candles gave a soothing ambience that lifts up the intimate mood. With the gorgeous Tuscany scenery served as the background, the whole party was having the ultimate bonding time and joyfully celebrated the union of the couple. Scroll through the gallery and feel the warmth and intimacy leaking from the pictures.
During our 7 years of dating leading up to our engagement, we attended several, traditional, 200+ guest weddings. While we always had a great time, as our relationship got more serious, we thought about how our ideal celebration would compare to a traditional wedding reception. We never felt that a big party represented who we are as a couple, yet a small, destination wedding was more our style. We enjoy traveling and having the opportunity to travel with our immediate families to celebrate our union seemed like an impossible dream… only it wasn't impossible! The ceremony was held at Santa Maria Assunta a Chianni, a church that dates back to the 12th century. It was a beautiful ceremony said by Father Brian Lowery. We had a harpist for the music, our flowers were beautifully placed around the church and the details of the church were breathtaking. Many people think of an intimate wedding and feel that it would be more calm and restrained, but that was not the case. We has an amazing cocktail hour by the pool with tons of delicious food and our signature drink, followed by an elegant sit down dinner under the setting sun, ending with an intense night of dancing under the stars. The DJ kept the music upbeat and the party was going strong until 1am!
