It’s no wonder Italy is one of the top 3 destinations for weddings abroad – what’s not to love! The food, the weather, the spectacular views and charm you won’t find anywhere else. Regina and Viesturs travelled from Latvia to Tuscany for their wedding day. Was it a truly special day? Of course it was! Expert planning provided by Infinity Weddings and Events®.

Bride & Groom: Regina and Viesturs, both from Latvia
Wedding date: 14th April 2013
Wedding location: Tuscany, Italy
Length of engagement: We’ve known each other for five years, living together for three years and engaged for 6 months.
We met: on the street by my office and arranged to go to concert two weeks later. We saw each other a few times after that. Then there was a long break, and a year and a half later we accidentally met in the same place again. Six months later we moved in together!
Our proposal: The proposal was very romantic and personal. We had a ritual every morning – we sat by a window together to watch the sunrise. So, one morning Viesturs unexpectedly gave me a ring and asked me to be his wife!
My favourite part of the wedding day: Regina – there is no one moment, at least not one that’s just a few minutes or seconds long. All day, the whole trip to Italy, Tuscany was most wonderful time in my life. I so much enjoyed the day it can’t be put into words. Everything went as planned, even weather. I can honestly say that our wedding was the most sincere, pure, beautiful and filled with spiritual and loving atmosphere I have ever imagined, been to or seen in movies. Viesturs – I always have enjoyed Italy but this journey and this special occasion was above anything I have ever experienced, and I’ll remember it for the rest of my life. I don’t even need to look at photos or videos, I remember everything. I’m so grateful to Barbara for planning it all so perfectly for us.
Our wedding theme/colours: ivory pearls and pois
We chose our venue because: for the unexpected charm, hidden in a Tuscan village
Wedding dress: tulle and organza gown
The ceremony: a romantic open-air ceremony with breath-taking view over the Tuscan countryside. The arch with romantic ivory flowers was our frame.
