Gaia and Luca grew up in the same Italian village just years apart. When the timing was right, Luca swept Gaia off her feet. They chose to have an Intimate Wedding in Volterra, Italy, at Tenuta Mocajo with their close friends and family.
I met the couple at their gorgeous vacation villa in the Tuscan countryside. Gaia was finishing getting ready while Luca had a beer with the boys. After, we drove to Volterra, a beautiful walled town that dates from before the 8th century BC. Volterra is actually a traffic-free city, so you must park outside of town and walk in. Such a unique experience! They had the most romantic ceremony at the Palazzo dei Priori in the most gorgeous wedding hall. Afterward, as Gaia and Luca exited, everyone gathered outside to throw flowers and rice. The courtyard was filled with people cheering for the newlyweds, one of my favorite moments. After their portraits, they drove off into the sunset in Luca’s Porsche for a candlelight dinner at the villa.
The day after the wedding, the celebrations continued with an epic pool party with their friends at the villa DJ’d by none other than the groom himself. The pool floaties made quite the splash, and no one wanted the party to end. It was such a fun way to end the perfect wedding weekend. Gaia and Luca’s intimate wedding in Volterra was the perfect getaway for two adventurous lovers.
