Romantic Wedding at the Villa of Dante Alighieri, Author of “The Divine Comedy.”

“We love Italy, we love its history, we love its food, and we are completely in love with Florence.” This is the reason why this lovely couple chose the historical Villa Il Garofalo, home of the author of “The Divine Comedy” Dante Alighieri, as their wedding venue. The magnificent hallways, historical background, and classic frescos created a romantic atmosphere, perfect for their intimate Italian wedding.

The ceremony took place in a beautiful garden with a spectacular view of the Florence cityscape. The father of the bride surprised the happy couple by bringing them traditional Uzbek clothing to commemorate their marriage, including a tubeteika for his daughter and a chapan for his son-in-law. They also celebrated with a traditional Uzbek dance.

To further exemplify the romantic Italian ambiance, all attendees were serenaded with live operatic arias performed by a talented soprano as they enjoyed a traditional Italian wedding cake. With silver decor, delicate pink flowers, and classic Italian architecture, the reception was dazzling for the newlyweds and guests alike.
