Destination wedding in an 8th century abbey in Umbria I Kayleen and Philip

Italy is renowned worldwide for its historical sites, monuments, and breathtaking landscapes. Why not take advantage of one of these beautiful places to plan your destination wedding? That is exactly what Kayleen and Philip, a couple from Chicago, thought when they decided to get married in Italy. They chose the Umbria region for their special day, and celebrated their wedding with their family at the Abbey of San Pietro in Valle. This stunning 8th century abbey is a true historical gem nestled in the mountains of Umbria, and even features remnants of a fresco attributed to Giotto.

A destination wedding in Italy can be the perfect solution for couples looking for a unique and unforgettable experience. Kayleen and Philip's wedding was elegant, stylish, emotional, and fun, just as a perfect wedding should be. They created a beautiful relationship immediately and it seemed as if they had known each other for a lifetime.

However, as with any wedding, there were some unexpected obstacles to overcome. A few hours of rain changed some of their plans, but in the end, everything went off without a hitch.

If you are considering getting married in Italy, you will find that there are a variety of options available to you. Whether you are looking for a wedding with a view, a small and intimate ceremony, or a medieval abbey wedding, Italy has it all.

Abbey weddings in Italy are especially popular due to the country's rich history and stunning architecture. Many of these abbeys have been carefully restored and maintained, offering a unique and authentic setting for your special day. The Abbey of San Pietro in Valle, where Kayleen and Philip got married, is just one example of the many stunning abbeys available for weddings in Italy.

One of the most interesting and unique aspects of getting married in Italy is the opportunity to incorporate Italian traditions into your wedding ceremony. For example, many couples choose to participate in a fasting ceremony, which is a traditional Italian pre-wedding ritual.

Overall, Italy offers couples a once in a lifetime experience for their wedding day. From its breathtaking landscapes to its rich history and traditions, it is no wonder why so many couples choose Italy for their destination wedding.

So why not take a cue from Kayleen and Philip and plan your own Italian wedding in Umbria? You won't regret it.
