A destination elopement in Florence to celebrate love
Some weddings are big, rich and glamorous. Others are intimate, simple and elegant. Like this destination elopement, for instance. Sara and Timothy’s special day is proof that even the smallest celebration can be unforgettable.
We hope you enjoy their story and photographs.
Sara and Timothy, love is all that matters
Sara and Timothy are young, beautiful and authentic. When thinking about their wedding, they didn’t care about etiquette but only about love. That’s why they came from Colchester, in the United States, to Florence, Italy, for their destination elopement.
What’s an elopement, you wonder? It’s the purest expression of love, where the only protagonists are the two fiancés. Not the flower decorations, not the party, not the banquet with hundreds of guests: only the bride, groom and their strong emotional bond. Exactly what this couple desired for their marriage – and exactly what they had.
A romantic destination elopement in Florence
We have been by the side of Sara and Timothy since the very beginning, when they were getting ready in a cute apartment in Florence. They shared that moment, taking care of one another until the time came for their destination elopement.
The chosen location was San Miniato al Monte, a place that offers a breathtaking view of the city. In front of that landscape, Sara and Timothy exchanged their vows and promises of eternal love in a very touching, private ceremony.
But that was not the end of it: the destination elopement continued with a pleasant walk to Piazzale Michelangelo, another stunning spot and photographic setting. Then we moved to the heart of Florence, where we took photos of the newlyweds all around its most iconic and charming landmarks. Of course, we couldn’t skip the romantic Ponte Vecchio and a stroll among the Renaissance monuments that populate every street.
The cherry on top? The bride and groom enjoying a delicious Italian gelato instead of the typical wedding cake. A choice that perfectly represents them and their event: even the simplest things can be full of value and become unforgettable.
Like a dessert shared with the person you love the most.
Like the destination elopement you’ve always dreamt of.
