Villa Pitiana Wedding Photographer, Tuscany

Ariana & Mike got married in Tuscany over labour day weekend and I was luck enough to be their Villa Pitiana Wedding Photographer, just a few miles from Florence, Italy. Flying in from New York for their Tuscany wedding, they made it a weekend long event.

Ariana is American and Mike from Dublin, Ireland so they welcomed their guests from all over the world with a rehearsal dinner on the terrace in front of the villa until the sun when down where they enjoyed Aperol spritz, champagne and more form a well stocked bar.

Wedding is Italy and across Europe are generally later in the day to get the best light and cooler parts of the day. So after preparations Ariana & Mike decided they would have a first look. This is where they see each other for the first time with no one else involved, it’s can be a very emotional time and some couples like to keep this moment to themselves, and keep it an intimate one.

Would you ever have a first look on your big day?

The outdoor ceremony was held on the lawn of the villa. Followed by drinks and canapés on the terrace. Unfortunately due to the weather starting the turn the dinner and the party took place inside. I say unfortunately but this Villa is beautiful and dinner was serves to candle light.

Most importantly the Party was awesome and there was plenty on Jamesons to keep it going.

Of course you need to love my work, but it’s not just about that. It’s a personal connection we’ll either have or we won’t. It’s that ‘we feel like we’ve known you for years’ familiarity that lets you feel comfortable to be yourselves. I might be that guy, or I might not be, and either way is honestly fine. But I’m dying to find out!
