Dana & Ryan: the 2nd best wedding of the year in Italy!

   The Chianti countryside could be a wonderful scenery for a Summer event:

a wonderful garden for ceremony overlooking the vineyards, a refreshing and happy aperitif in the herb garden and frescoed halls for a party inside the castle .

Wonderful choices for a wonderful couple. Dana and Ryan both come from Canada.

They chose Tuscany for their special day as they both love Italy .
