And the Winner is … San Gimignano
First thing’s first … San Gimignano is pronounced: San Gee-Mee-nyah-no
Ok, glad we took care of that.
So, Ryan and I were looking for a place to have a wedding in Italy. We wanted to be outside of Rome, because one of the things we have enjoyed most in Italy is driving through the country to beautiful views, and having wonderful Tuscan dinners in small Agriturismi. San Gimignano has a good location near other major Tuscan sights (good for travelling around pre and post wedding with friends and family) and the countryside is absolutely gorgeous.
Part of our search was for a church – which seemed impossible until we met Elisabetta. We were interested in finding a local to San Gimignano to help us with some logistics. Italy is not exactly as Internet connected as the US.
The church is tiny inside – which works out well considering we’re planning on a small wedding. And it has all of that ancient Italian church charm. We were pretty excited to find out that we could get married there.
