The bride, dressed in a sleek gown, makes her entrance with her father at Storica Hostaria Baracca in Trebaseleghe, Padua, Italy. The two walk beneath simple wooden archways decorated with long, white cloths.

Having the chance to be wedding photographers at Osteria Storica Baracca, just outside Padua in Trebaseleghe, was an amazing experience. We were lucky because this couple chose to have an outdoor wedding, and the sunlight and weather were absolutely perfect. The flowers for the ceremony were truly exceptional, and the long white cloth that decorated the outdoor aisle, marking the bride’s entrance, emphasized the vivid colors of the surrounding nature. This couple loved the location they chose, and we can't blame them. This was truly the perfect place for them to say "Yes" and start their new life together as husband and wife.
