Who’s up for a little cozy Winter Italian romance?
It’s supposed to be in the 90s here in Portland (mid-30s for our European counterparts) and just the sight of Bride Jami’s fashionable faux fur coat & sparkling wedding dress is already cooling me down. Set in December, this Venice elopement shows off the very best of running away to Italy during Winter.
I’m a longtime advocate for traveling during shoulder & off-seasons; Venice (and so many other popular European destinations) glimmer in the winter sunlight and provide refuge from summer tourists. Thanks to the chillier weather Jami & Tim were able to avoid the crowds and make their elopement truly “intimate” (aside from the most adorable vow interruption at the front doorstep of real Venetians!)
The couple wandered about the gorgeous city, rode gondolas and then toured Italy with honeymoon stops in Venice, Verona, Bologna, and Florence. For anyone following Jami & Tim’s steps, here’s my own Florence honeymoon guide!
