This photo was taken from the outside of the room where the second part of the ceremony took place.  You can see through the open glass the couple sitting while the dog remained on guard outside.

Now in times of COVID, everything is more difficult.  However, this German couple decided not to postpone their wedding, and continue on holding their event at an authentic farm nestled in the hills of the Val d'Orcia, Agriturismo il Rigo.

Even the weather decided to make the whole matter more dynamic between sun and rain forcing the couple to conclude the final part of the ceremony inside. The staff and its Tuscan hills are a unique and enchanting place after the uncertainties of time have only made the atmosphere more magical.
