The whole Umbria region, but especially the area surrounding Assisi, has a great religious and spiritual tradition, due to the connection with history and life of St. Francis.
Santa Maria degli Angeli hosts a variety of anecdotes related to the Saint. For instance, here is found the thornless rose garden where he rolled, naked, in an attempt to overcome temptation.
Micol and Daniele know each other since they were children: their love is deep and long lasting and their wedding has a great spiritual meaning. That's why they have chosen such a spiritual place to celebrate it.
The ceremony took place at the church of the nuns Franciscan Missionaries of Mary (Chiesa delle Suore Bianche). Its entrance is very simple, while its interior is enriched with frescos portraying scenes of Christ's life.
This is a very sweet part of the celebration: after the Elevation, the groom (instead of the priest) gives the Host and the Chalice to the bride, and vice versa.
After the ceremony, the couple took advantage of the late-afternoon light, very warm in summertime.
The bride told: "On leaving the Church, the sunlight became an active part of the whole organisation and it seemed as though dancing sun rays appeared from behind an invisible back-drop, filling the hearts of everyone with love and joy."
They've had their portraits taken in the nuns garden, a place they are very fond to.
On the background, you can recognize the majestic Basilica of Santa Maria degli Angeli and its dome.
I love this light and feeling. Thanks a lot to Micol and Daniele for sharing their experience and their love with us.

Your first decision as an engagement couple is to set priorities for your wedding planning. You have to decide what you value most. Is it the dress? The food? The venue? As a couple and photographers, we belive that couples should make their photography a top priority. After the big day is over, you will leave your reception with a spouse& your pictures...that’s it! All of that planning and preparation is over in a matter of hours!

Oh, friends, we are so excited to share this Villa Pianciani wedding with you today! It’s hard for us to believe that this was an hot summer day! Now everything is frozen under the snow :)
People ask us all the time if we shoot a lot of destination weddings, and the answer is YES. We shoot A LOT of destination weddings… without ever leaving our country! Italy is a huge destination for so many couples who live around the world, and it’s probably one of the only places where you could have gorgeous weddings in every season!
Lisa and Serkan planned their summer wedding here from Washington, and thanks to the incredible expertise and eye of Rita, Villa Pianciani's manager, the day was flawless from start to finish. From the gorgeous florals by Sartoria Floreale to the custom menu by Apollinare Catering, every single detail of the day felt like it was straight out of a magazine. We were in photographer heaven.
But what stuck out to us most was the incredible love, warmth and sincerity of Lisa, Serkan and everyone around them. The second we arrived at the Villa, Lisa’s mom, who we’d never had the chance to meet in person, greeted us with a huge hug and smile that made us feel like family. Lisa’s bridesmaids were each so sweet and genuinely excited to be a part of each moment of their day. During the reception, you could FEEL the love and closeness shared not just by the couple, but by every single person.
Lisa and Serkan, thank you for allowing us to be part of your family for the day. It was truly an honor, and we’re so excited for you to see a few of our many favorites!
