Stefani & Massimiliano
On this day in late September I have the pleasure of telling you the story of two boys, a very long story, more than ten years.
Saturday 28 September 2019 at 4:30 pm the two beautiful spouses Stefani & Massimiliano joined in marriage.
Everything starts a few months ago, around May if I remember correctly, when a dear friend of mine from Castagneto Carducci (LI) calls me to tell me that he knows a future bride who is looking for a photographer for her wedding.
As usual it happens, I contact the bride and we meet a little later to learn more about her needs and to formulate an offer suitable to her requests.
Right from the start I realize how much Stefani is a simple girl, easygoing and also a bit agitated, maybe for the event that in itself was already very close and the time to organize it wasn’t much given the commitment of the seasonal work.
In any case, we immediately become familiar with each other so much that he did not even want time to think about my offer, he immediately told me that it was fine and I could only be happy about it, not so much for the confirmed job as for the good relationship that immediately it was created between us.
We left each other with a promise to resent later when the date was next and indeed it did.
Having defined the times and places where the spouses are dressed, we are finally ready for the big day.
On my wedding day I go to the couple’s home in Castagneto Carducci (LI) to photograph him first, then she who arrived about an hour before the ceremony, around 3:00 pm.
The civil ceremony was held by the mayor of the town of Castagneto Carducci in person Sandra Scarpellini who celebrated their union in her beautiful office of the municipal building with sea view.
Once the formalities were over, we headed to take some shots with the bride and groom for the splendid village of Castagneto while the guests made a small toast at the bar “L’angolo di Giosuè” still inside the village.
By now, almost at 18:00, we headed to the place of the reception which was held at the “I Ginepri” hotel in Marina di Castagneto Carducci (LI).
After a few solitary shots on the beach and by the pool, the bride and groom were able to enjoy a fantastic buffet and an exquisite dinner prepared by the hotel’s excellent cuisine.
Everything went smoothly with lots of food and above all with a lot of wine, singing, dancing and entertainment of all kinds.
The cutting of the cake was combined with an amazing fireworks display that took place on the beach in front of the hotel.
At the end of the day I greeted the couple with the best wishes for a wonderful life together.
I address you, you who like many others have chosen me among many other photographers: I sincerely hope that the shots I have made for you will be to your liking and above all that they will help you carry a timeless memory in your heart, a goal that it is witness to so many sacrifices and many battles fought together.
Really my best wishes, thank you for having made me participate as few other spouses have been able to do, I will be forever grateful to you.
Good life, Alessio.
