La Foce Wedding Video // Val D’Orcia Tuscany

Charles and Alice met in 2008, when they were both working in Hong Kong. He said “I love you” in two weeks, and asked her to move in with him in two months. Against all odds, their fledgling relationship survived three years of long distance (one of which was from Hong Kong to Ann Arbor!), and they moved in together in NYC in 2012 with their fur babies, Pepper and Bella.

In 2015, Charles asked Alice’s mom and dad for permission to marry her, and proposed over Labor Day Weekend on a lake in upstate New York.

The bride and groom wanted a small intimate wedding with just their closest friends and immediate family. They took a roadtrip through France and Italy to visit venues and fell in love with Tuscany and the gardens of La Foce.

May 28, 2017 was everything Alice and Charles could have hoped for. The bride chose two gowns, a more structured Anna Maier for the ceremony in the gardens and a romantic Oscar de la Renta for dinner and dancing. She paired both with strappy Vince Camuto platform sandals.

Wedding planner Federica Beni of HoneyCinnamonWed and her team oversaw every last detail, makeup artist and hair stylist Lara Navarrini made sure the bride was always camera ready, florist Isa Events created bouquets and centerpieces that set the mood perfectly, string quartet Alma Project wowed the guests with their original arrangements, caterer Guidi Lenci prepared an excellent meal that guests raved about, DJ Wedding Music and Lights kept guests dancing well into the night, and photographer Greg Finck and videographer Marco Abba captured every happy moment.
