19 Years (Diciannove Anni)

Today as we continue our travels through Italy, Mr. B and I will be celebrating our 19th wedding anniversary in Bologna, Italy. (How time flies!). We had a destination wedding long before it ever became popular and before settling on Seattle as the location, we actually considered Italy. At the time, the process of getting married in Italy seemed like a complicated one so we sought an alternate location. I don’t regret a thing about our wedding but I can’t help wonder what our wedding would have been like had we planned our nuptials abroad. Perhaps, it would have been something like the three-day wedding event in Venice, Italy that interior designer Emily Jackson and her husband, Robert, CFO and Vice President of Acquisitions at Zarvona Energy planned for an intimate group of twelve. Be sure to read the play-by-play of the wedding festivities featured on Harper’s Bazaar. You will learn that Venice wasn’t the couple’s first choice as a wedding location either. Their original wedding venue was Celerie Kemble’s Dominican Republic estate, but due to Zika an alternate venue was selected. I have to say that, speaking from experience, sometimes Plan B turns out to be the best choice after all.

Every love story is beautiful, but ours, my darling, is my favorite…
