Today’s real wedding takes us to the lush Italian landscape and the romantic region of Tuscany. *Sigh* Steeped in rich history, amazing architecture and abounding in love, romance and art–Tuscany is also the birthplace of such artists as: Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, Machiavelli, Puccini, Botticelli … What a place to live and to wed! Enjoy Lili & Davide’s joyous day and witness how they beautifully blend Davide’s Italian culture with Lili’s Persian culture.
Isn’t Lili such a beautiful bride–a Persian princess!
Highlights of the day It was a dreamy day for me, and every moments of it was highlight. But here are some … when I walked in the church and Davide had tears in his eyes and I couldn’t stop shaking … My best friend’s speech… and the father-daughter dance when all the guests started crying!
One advice that I would give to other brides You can stress about the wedding as much as you want but once you are in your gown, stop caring cause everything is gonna be beautiful to other’s eyes, just have fun, and that’s exactly what I did! The one negative thing that happened–was that the wrong cake was delivered to our wedding. The second that I saw the cake before entering the reception, I almost had a heart attack and my husband was saying “breathe Lili, breathe”, and he said “we’ll deal with it later” but you know what, we never did. Because the whole day was so big and magical for us that the cake was just a small part!
“Sofreh Aghd” The Wedding Spread … a beautiful, joyous Persian wedding tradition
Best parts of the day … Having all the people who love us and care about us all in one place for me was the best. The first dance … and The father-daughter dance–because I knew just how happy my father was!
Beautiful and exquisite! A Tuscan treat … from beginning to end! Congratulations Davide & Lili–thank you for sharing your day with us. May love, joy, peace and blessings be always with you!
