Charming and quaint perfectly describe the beautiful ceremony on 23rd September 2013 between Ian, working in real estate, and Elyse, working as a teacher. This young, happy, and carefree couple wed in the midst of the world cycling championships. Ian and Elyse are high school sweethearts, whose tight bond has only grown stronger throughout the years. The stunning California based couple, left the United States in search of a fabulous destination wedding in Italy at the Hotel Villa la Vedetta in Florence. The bride was absolutely glowing in her Lazaro wedding gown grasping her gorgeous Tuscany flowers. Guests were surrounded by decorations matching their color scheme of light pink and white adding to a very sophisticated ambiance. For their loved ones who weren’t able to travel with them to Florence and be with them on their special day, they watched the ceremony through overseas iPad screening. The couple is very pious so having a religious ceremony was a top priority for them. The presiding priest celebrated the ceremony with a magnificent view of Florence. Ian and Elyse celebrated the rest of their big day dining on delicious courses, indulging on scrumptious treats and spending quality time with their friends and family.
