This wedding took place at the stunning Romanesque Church of Sant’Appiano, often indicated as the oldest church in Chianti, the church has in fact Etruscan origins. I personally think that it’s one of the most beautiful churches in the area because of its simple architecture and the tranquility one senses being within.  What makes Sant’Appiano unique are the ruins of the ancient Baptistery which sits in front of its facade. Built in the 4th century, it collapsed at the beginning of the 19th century and only four stone pillars were left standing.
