Ilaria & Andrea - Destination Wedding - Florence - Italy

Cio’ che e’ destinato a te, trovera’ il modo di raggiungerti…” “What is destined to you, will find it’s way to you…”

Ilaria & Andrea met in 1991. They were part of the same group of friends. They were friends for 25 years without ever dating. Then they lost track of each other. One night, on Aug 2nd 2016,  they were at a friend’s dinner and something just clicked! January 2017, she comes home from work one night and he just hugged her and without even thinking he asked “ Te, mi vuoi sposare?”

He said his favorite moment from their wedding day was seeing her walk down the aisle, seeing her smile like that was the best feeling ever!

Ilaria’s favorite moment was also walking down the aisle and seeing how Andrea was all excited and nervous. “It was like in that moment of silence, a thousand words were being said. Seeing in his eyes all the love he has for me, it was so strong that we had to hug! I will never forget that moment!”

The ceremony was held at a beautiful church in Scandicci. And the reception at Villa Castiglione. They were surrounded by all their friends and family and it truly was a beautiful day! Full of laughs and tears!
