A wedding in the vineyard is a romantic experience that makes the ceremony and reception truly unforgettable. As Karen and Benjamin know, the protagonists of a very special day for many reasons. Starting with the fact that the two young people turned their dream into reality many thousands of kilometers from their country, Canada. And they came to Italy in search of atmospheres and landscapes that they considered exclusive to a region further north of our splendid Lazio.
As an event organization brand, we convinced them that the wonderful country wedding they desired was also possible near Rome in the beautiful Castelli Romani. We could have proposed a wedding in a villa with a swimming pool, a civil or symbolic reception in a medieval castle, and other fascinating locations. All excellent solutions in which we boast a great organizational experience. But they wanted to find restful countryside, a wedding in the vineyard, and maybe the chance to have other experiences in the area in the days before and after.
A wedding in the vineyard organized with care and on time, suddenly sees its long-awaited day arrive. Maître and waiters retouch the settings on the large terrace overlooking the hilly landscape. The mise en place in a country chic style is embellished with light floral ornaments that enrich the large tables of precious wood with color. The appetizer buffet offers a choice of local products also designed to let foreign guests taste the best typical products of the area. Wine is good in itself because the company that hosts us makes it taste by telling the care and passion that it puts into every bottle. Tantalizing “frittini” (little pieces of fried food: vegetables, rice little balls called “supplì” and others) prepared instantly will open the dinner which proves to be a real taste well organized by our trusted chefs. But now, please, pay attention, because after the guests the newlyweds finally arrive.
Now the sun begins to go down. In the silence of all those present, nature offers a background of cicadas and leaves blowing in the wind. The celebrant gives a long speech in French to the smiling spouses and the children also listen quietly, anticipating the surrounding space to be discovered by playing. A friend of the couple accompanies the country ceremony with the crystalline notes of a classical guitar. Photographers are spoiled for the choice to frame and film these moments of true joy, as you can see on this page. Then we go to the tables, there is joy and serenity; there is that desired atmosphere that the spouses wanted firmly.
The chefs surpass themselves by offering dishes with new tastes for all Canadian friends who have come here. From “marigolds” (stuffed pasta) to pesto with cherry tomatoes, Taggiasca olives, and basil to “Gragnano paccheri” with white meat ragù in truffle cream. And from beef steaks to mushroom cream and parmesan flakes to spinach with citronette. Menu chose among the many possibilities of our offer.
After dessert, as a wedding cake, an exquisite millefeuille with chocolate chips and strawberries and then cheesecake, profiteroles, various mousses, and fresh fruit. At the time of the dance, the loud request for Italian music that the DJ, hitherto selector of international evergreens, gladly grants.
It is easy to be late when you are well and at the end of the evening, Karen and Benjamin begin to thank. Yes, it’s true, at the moment the positive judgment is also conditioned by all the emotions that were concentrated in the evening. But their judgment was consolidated even more in the following days when the emotion leaves room for concrete reflection on the facts. So, with the unanimous chorus of those present (even children who are known to risk getting bored on these occasions), the thanks continue.
They continue in the following days by seeing our photos and end by posting the very original wedding in the vineyard on their social profiles. We can say that we have represented our country well in our small way, with hospitality, friendliness, breathtaking views, and excellent food. With the professional and personal satisfaction of having made the transformation of a dream into reality unforgettable. The company management thanks the couple for having entrusted themselves to us.
