Congratulations Marisa and Giorgio! The most beautiful couple!

How and why I got here is a story too long to tell right now, a tale that stretches over more than two decades! What’s important is that Marisa and Giorgio, some of the nicest folks I know, were married yesterday at the Abbazia di Praglia at the foot of the Euganean Hills (near Padua).

The setting was the famous Benedictine abbey.

Guests were greeted by an amazing spread at a nearby agriturismo.

Risotto ai funghi e al tartufo nero, carnaroli cooked perfectly al dente.

Feast your eyes! One of the best catered events I’ve ever attended (seriously).

Congratulations Marisa and Giorgio! I’m so glad I could be there to celebrate your happy, happy union!

Our good friends Winnie and Amy were there too, in from New York!

Running out now to taste some dry Moscato in the Euganean Hills… stay tuned…
