This surprise engagement has a special story behind it. Paolo's grandma lives in the countryside of Puglia, Italy, in a "Truli" house which is a traditional house in this part of Italy.
Paolo's dream is to renovate this house and live with Serena here when they get married.
So he asked his good friend Santa, from www.italianboutiqueweddings.com to come and decorate the location. She brought an clasic carpet with lots of candles and blooming almond branches. The whole place smelled of almond blossoms.
Santa arranged for us to take the photos, and Paolo told Serena he wanted to gift her their first photoshoot. Serena is a little artist herself so she loved the idea of a photoshoot.
