Nothing says 'I love you' like a wedding!
And while Chris and I were wandering around Trastevere, we decided to take a break by visiting the beautiful church, Santa Maria in Trastevere.
As if the church wasn't beautiful enough, we noticed a lot of buzz taking place in the front of the church.
A videographer, someone hanging flowers at the end of the pews, an organist and singer team practicing.
We both turned to each other and said, "Do you think there's gonna be a wedding?"
The answer was YES!! Or should I say SI?!?
The wedding ceremony worked a bit differently in Italy.
No bridesmaids. No groomsmen.
Instead the groom, who was dressed in his Carabinieri best walked down with his mom.
Next came the Mother of the Bride, who unceramoniously strolled down the aisle to her seat, alone.
The grooms Carabinieri buddies in full dress, stood with swords crossed in the alcove as the beautiful bride and her father walked through.
They were preceded by a lone, shy, ringbearer, named Mario. He was reluctant, fussing, crying and downright adorable in his tiny designer Italian pin-striped suit!
How privileged we felt to witness such a wonderful event in such a beautiful, historic setting.
An Italian wedding- what could be lovelier?
Happy Love Thursday, everyone!
