Keep reading as we take you to Regan and Clayton’s adventure wedding in Italy.
Pre-wedding photoshoot Florence
Before the wedding day, Regan and Clayton took a trip to Florence for a memorable photo opportunity. It was a warm and cozy sunrise photoshoot two days before their big day, where the two visited various iconic spots in Florence.
Their first stop was the Ponte Vecchio or the “Old Bridge,” with many old buildings lying along its banks. The scene was picturesque, with the iconic bridge, the river, and the old buildings in the background while Regan and Clayton posed for their pre-wedding photos.
After the warm up, they proceeded to have a closer look at the lovely Italian buildings. Their starting point for the mini exploration was none other than Piazza della Signoria, the heart of Florence and the focal point of its politics. At the center of the Piazza was the fortress-like palace called Palazzo Vecchio where history and art meet.
Regan and Clayton enjoyed every minute of their Florence photo shoot, walking along the historic streets of the city, witnessing its beauty, and stopping by to pose, hug, and kiss for their photographer.
A trip to Florence will never be complete without visiting the Florence Cathedral, Piazza Duomo, and the whole cathedral complex. The couple did not miss the chance to see this popular tourist spot, and it was their last stop for the unforgettable pre-wedding photo shoot.

The romantic day that was
On the third day of their stay in the villa, Regan and Clayton finally tied the knot in the venue’s chapel.
The ceremony happened at 6:30 in the afternoon so the whole wedding party had enough time to take a dip at the large pool and enjoy the sun. While their guests enjoyed themselves in the pool, Regan and Clayton prepared for their most awaited moment.
After getting ready in separate rooms, the couple finally met for a romantic first look in one of the beautiful barns of the venue. You can see the amazement in their faces while seeing each other in their wedding attires for the first time.

It was a meaningful exchange of vows in front of their dearest friends and family who smiled and cried happy tears witnessing the two finally tying the knot.
After the ceremony, the guests had drinks and aperitifs at the courtyard whilst Regan and Clayton were doing the photoshoot. The couple walked along the gardens, the pool, the ivy-covered walls, and all the lovely spots of the venue to maximize their photo ops.
When it was all done, they joined the wedding party at the courtyard for a small program where a couple of friends and family gave their speeches. After some chit chat and special moments by the pool, they had dinner at the pergola where everyone enjoyed fresh, regional cuisine prepared by the venue’s professional kitchen crew.
