From the moment my son Noah saw Mitra, he fell in love. This beautiful woman took his hand and showed him (and us) around Rome. She swung him around, told him where to get the best gelato and why the statues were pointing in certain directions. It still amazes me how Mitra had the energy to do everything she did for us and the other international guests. The first night a guided tour of Rome followed by a lovely dinner in Trastevere. The second day she showed us around the Vatican before inviting everyone to hers and Fabio’s favorite Sardinian pizza restaurant where we all met Fabio’s family.
I hardly saw Noah those days, but I knew he was with Mitra.
It was a wonderful way to get to know someone and I know I will always be grateful for our days together.
After the wedding we all traveled as a group to first Florence, then Ravenna and Venice before I had to leave for my next wedding in Austria. In every city, Mitra had dinners and tours organised, tours she guided herself.
I’ll be posting Fabio and Mitra’s wedding tomorrow, but here are a few frames from the days leading up.
