If you’re looking to have a destination wedding that “art more lovely and temperate” than any other, do I have a suggestion for you…
Recently opened to the public, brides and grooms can now profess their nuptial love atop the iconic balcony made famous by William Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet. (Yep, you heard me right.) Part of the Capulet Mansion in Verona - or Juliet’s house – this incredibly famous veranda has unlocked its windows to the general public and gladly welcomes their love and marriage (and money.)
And while I’m still leery on Romeo & Juliet being the greatest love story of all time… <She’s a 13 year old girl. He’s a Renaissance player, and they both end up dead>… there is no denying that Shakespeare was a master at personifying love. Simply by picking up a feather tipped pen and jotting down a few thees and thous, this 16th Century sonnet seducer melted the hearts of women everywhere… then and now.
So, if you’re looking to have a Shakespearean styled wedding, simply strap on your fanciest tights, channel your inner poet and book a destination wedding that even the Montagues and Capulets would break bread to see :)
