Eva and Rick. Siena, Italy

 

 

No matter the season or conditions, whether hot, cold, wet, or dry, Italy never disappoints.  So on this blustery, wet, cold spring day, Eva and Rick along with their guests of about 12 (that would include Gia, Elena and me) had all the makings needed for a perfect and very intimate Italian wedding.  Beginning with the Bride's preparation at the Palazzo Ravizza Hotel, now one of my new favorite hotels in all of Siena, she then made her short walk to the "courthouse" for the ceremony.  Well, maybe I should explain just a bit about an Italian courthouse.  Let me just say this is no ordinary courthouse.  The Palazzo Pubblico, built in 1297 houses some of the most stunning architecture and artwork from medieval times which has its beauty rivaling the most ornate, palatial Italian Villas & Castles.  So to say this place is just an ordinary courthouse is a bit "pazzo".  With the help of my good friend, Tuscan Event Planner, Ben Singleton (an unbelievable painter by the way, www.bensingleton.com), we were able to weather the rain and the cold to create some beautiful and timeless photographs.  We are very grateful to Eva and Rick for appreciating our photography enough to include us into their romantic and intimate wedding plans.  We hope they'll enjoy their photographs for a lifetime to come.
