Laura ♥ Enzo ... In case I need to cry

On the morning of Laura and Enzo's wedding, we felt like we had walked into a movie. Enzo - THE most thoughtful and warm-hearted person you could meet - was directing traffic, ensuring all of the TEN (10) boys and men were on time with their preparations. The atmosphere was so perfect that pretty much anything we filmed looked great. Even Enzo mis-buttoning his shirt, which is not shown here ;)

You can see in the video what we witnessed at Laura's. It's a moment that was just made to be filmed. I didn't even know what was happening until halfway through. I got pretty close to the card and shifted focus to Laura's face, and at this moment an absolutely huge teardrop fell from her face. I didn't even realize it was a tear until watching the footage afterwards. This emotional reading became the main storyline for the video, connecting to the "Proteggi questa casa" plaque at Enzo's parents' place.

One of my favourite shots is Laura's sister putting the garter on Laura. You can't see what's taking place because of the sofa that is in the foreground. But that's what makes the shot so perfect: sometimes not showing something is the best way to show it.

The ceremony is shown with a small selection of longer shots, to convey the awesome space that is St Francis of Assisi, and to match with the mystique of the music and the priest's words to Laura and Enzo.
