Wedding in the historic Cortona.
Originally an Umbrian city, it was conquered and enlarged by the Etruscans, who called it Curtun.
The name should be related to a family of Indo-European word, with the meaning of "enclosed place" and consequently walled city like German garden, Italian orto, English gird and yard, Slavic grad and the ancient town of Gordium in Anatolia. During the 7th century BC, it joined the Etruscan League.
Following the Italian Wars of Independence, Tuscany Cortona included became part of the Kingdom of Italy.
From this brief historical note, we appreciate that the location chosen by Lauren and Jake for the wedding celebration is really a special place, for Italians but from today also for them...
The long day began with preparations in the enchanting villa San Crispolto located in Passignano a few minutes drive from Cortona.
The photo shoot had various phases, first some pictures of the details and then the groom's preparations with his friends and then in the wedding suite for the bride get ready.
The ceremony as mentioned before was celebrated in Cortona in the beautiful Roman Catholic Cathedral.
At the end, of the ceremony, the photo shooting continued with some shots in the historic center of Cortona and then a stop in the fields with some country-style photos and then also by the lake near Tuoro before returning to the villa for the party.
The evening continued with dinner in the marquee with traditional speeches and then cutting the cake in the courtyard of the villa, where was held also the first dance with romantic lights.
Great wedding day in Tuscany. Congratulations!
