They met and decided to marry in short order. Then Norina surprised Marco by getting pregnant during the lockdown months, imposed in Switzerland during the months of April and May, so the Marco decided to pronounce his vows of love, respect, and reciprocal support, to both her and their future child.
Their choice that marrying Tuscany came about because of their love for Italy, as well as good food and the many opportunities a marriage in the region offers..the historical villas, the museums, the sun and the ability that only Italian towns have to mix art and fun, relax and culture.
The Villa selected for the wedding, Villa Valgiano, seats on top of the hills just above Lucca, and it is a Villa from the 1800 with strong architectural regerences to France and Provence, so much so that it almost like old like out of an impressionist painting.
The ancient Limonaia ( lemon house) with exposed wooden beams, antique crystal chandeliers and the walls worm by time, with a blue bass relief, was the setting and inspired the wedding planner, Lucia Lazzaro, in creating a romantic-chic French atmosphere, in the set up table, in the wedding stationary, menus, place holders, ceremony, to which were added inserts of flowers designs in nude, pink, antique pink, and cream shades. Dinner , with all the candles light up , the imperial table , the greenery and the roses, the antique dishes , looked like a scene taken by one of Renoir ‘s painting.
Not surprisingly, even he wonderful “Juliet’s roses chosen as leit motif both in the floral arrangement that framed the cerimony and dinner, and that were also painted on the invitations and in the menu, are of provencal origin and have given the perfect touch to the entire wedding.
