It doesn’t get more dreamy than a May wedding in Italy! But before Vanessa and Michael jet off to Sarzana to say their vows, they celebrated with friends and family in Walla Walla with a beautiful pre-wedding reception captured by Amber Clark of @thestudio photography. Read Vanessa and Michael’s sweet story below.
On our first overseas trip, we found ourselves standing in front of the Eiffel Tower at dusk watching a make shift football game waiting for the tower to light up and twinkle. In that moment, as the Tower was lighting up, Mike proposed and I said YES! We spent the following week visiting our friends in Sarzana, Italy and even spent a few days in Rome where we threw coins in Trevi Fountain. It really was a magical vacation so we decided we would have to come back and say our vows in Italy.
To celebrate our upcoming wedding and send us off in style, my cousin Kelli Kontos and her husband Chris decided to throw us a wonderful shower at their winery in Walla Walla. It was such a special day for us with friends, family, great food, scrumptious desserts, delicious wine, and beautiful decorations! Now we just have to wait until May 15th to say our vows in Sarzana, Italy.
