A typical wedding at Borgo di Castelvecchio
All the wedding took place within the property, the ceremony, the aperitifs, the wedding dinner and the after dinner party with Guty & Simone band, the Italian wedding musicians. The musicians did their usual service of live music + dj sets during the breaks. As usual they also provided an extra sound system and a wireless microphone for the background music and speeches during dinner in the courtyard and some disco lights for the party on the dance floor under the big trees.
Let’s party with Guty & Simone
Samantha’s dad’s side of the family are Jewish so they asked to do the chair dance; actually no wedding is complete without the Hora, or chair dance. As in this tradition, a few strong and brave guests hoisted the bride and groom high above the crowd on chairs to the sounds of “Hava Nagila” played live by Guty & Simone (they already knew this song since they had learnt it before for previous Jewish weddings). Friends and family danced around in an ecstatic circle as the elevated couple tries not to fall down!!!!
