Brett and Oliver’s magical September wedding took place in Pisa in a 15th century renaissance villa that once belonged to Lorenzo de’ Medici.

In keeping with their green apple and white color scheme, the grooms’ boutonnières utilized native blossoms called Lisianthus flowers, which symbolize eternal love.
