Rubina & Severin's wedding day started in the early afternoon when they were both doing their preparations separately. Nele was photographing Rubina's 'Getting Ready' in a different Villa and I was with Severin & his grooms men at Villa Rizzardi.
Their guests arrived in the afternoon starting with a little aperitif accompanied by an amazing string band, so that you felt a little like you were part of Bridgerton. Then everyone was slowly moving across the venue to the amphitheater where the ceremony took place. Rubina had a little first look with her grandpa, who then brought her down the stairs into the center of the theater. During the ceremony not only Rubina & Severin got married & many tears were shed but also a little girl did her first steps & a cute Goldie made his appearance.
After the ceremony, a marvelous champagne tower was ready to start the reception – many hugs, Aperol Spritz & delicious food. I guess a wedding in Italy just cannot disappoint, solely because of the food. After the sun had set, the whole wedding party went down to a long dinner table within a tree avenue. The food party continued with different courses of Italian risotto, meat & more, which were accompanied by some emotional speeches of friends & family.
For dessert everyone went back to the amphitheater where Rubina & Severin performed a dance and then cut their wedding cake. Some drinks at the bar kicked off the party, which ended at the ground floor of Villa Rizzardi, where Rubina & Severin's friends showed their DJ skills!
