Tuscany is famous throughout the world for its beautiful vineyards and picturesque olive groves, but Tuscany is not just that it is also the sea and mountains. In this case I want to tell a wedding held appenine Tuscany, in the province of Arezzo. The ceremony took place Dama in Casentino, and the place to take some photos of the new couple is definitely very special.
The la Verna Sanctuary is situated in the Tuscan Apennines. The mountain, which is covered with a monumental fir and beech trees forest, is characterized by an unmistakable appearance thanks to its summit (1283 sea level) bending in sheer drop over the valley. Over the sheer cliff and wrapped around by a surrounding wood we can find the hole unit of the Sanctuary, which cherishes several art, culture and history treasures inside its massive and articulated structure. wedding photography tuscany sanctuary la Verna. In summer 1224 St Francesco withdrew on the mountain for his ordinary spiritual exercises and silence. During his stay, he asked God to be able to take part, from the very deep of his heart, to the Passion of Christ, mystery of love and pain at the same time. The Lord paid attention to his words and appeared to him in the guise of a crucified seraph who gave him as a gift the seals of the Passion. Francesco turned into a visible an concrete imagine of Christ not only in his heart, mind and soul, which already were, but even in his exterior body. The Stigmata episode together with Francesco life style are the most precious thing given to his friars mates in la Verna. St Francesco’s important spiritual heir not only deals with every single friar in the monastery, but it turns into the main vehicle which the community wants to convey to all those who visit la Verna.
