Sara and Karen’s Italian Lesbian Wedding

The Lowdown

Where: Frassanelle, Italy
Theme: Rustic luxe
Photographer: Paola de Paola

Karen and Sara’s Italian wedding took place in a woodland; they walked down their rose-petal-covered aisle to harp music, as their friends and family looked on from their seats on cushion-covered hay bales. Diane, the celebrant, led a gorgeous, and very personal ceremony, which saw much of the congregation reach for their tissues.
