A stunning historic chapel, a perfectly green countryside, and a surprise from their two kids—Elisa and Alessandro had the wedding of their dreams at the Abbey of San Pietro. By using the venue as the centerpiece, the couple added perfectly romantic details like a soft color palette, stunning floral arrangements by Sartoria Floreale, and timeless table decor.
They were surrounded by their family and friends, and included their two kids in the ceremony and—trust us—it’s really adorable. We’re excited to share this totally romantic and intimate wedding, captured by Junebug members Andrea & Federica. Keep on scrolling to get the Italian inspiration you were looking for. Adiamo!

The Abbey of San Pietro, Umbria, Italy
Why The Abbey of San Pietro?
The Abbey of San Pietro in Valle in Ferentillo holds a special place in my heart. I used to go there as a child with my parents and it represents authentic Umbria—a jewel set in the mountains. For us, it was the ideal place for the kind of wedding we were planning. After he asked me to marry him, the first thing I did was call to find out the available dates.
Wedding Planning Advice
During the planning process, we let ourselves be guided by emotions. We were lucky enough to meet wonderful people on our path. I believe that the organization of the wedding is part of the wedding itself. The greatest advice is to enjoy every single moment. Not everything will go perfectly, but it will be perfect.
Perfectly Romantic Wedding Colors
We choose our colors with floral designer Sartoria Floreale. Romina is located in the heart of Spoleto and from the first meeting, we immediately felt in harmony. We met in the center of her shop immersed in the colors and scents of flowers and essential oils. At the end of the meeting, we settled on the idea of using Rosa Cipria, mauve, white, butter, sage green palette with a very light touch of burgundy. Then we added dark iron in the materials and glass to create a dreamy color palette!
Shopping For Wedding Dresses
When I saw my wedding dress, it was love at first sight. It was the first one I tried on. Simple, but elegant fabric with a tailored cut. It was more of a white evening dress—I felt like a real princess. Inspired by an icon of mine, Charlotte of Monaco, I added a necklace for the reception.
